Konami today announced that eFootball PES 2020 players will get a ‘PES Veteran Bonus‘ at the start of the next PES season, as a ‘welcome reward’ for their participation in the MyClub mode of the current PES version. This can be seen as a good move by Konami to retain the current PES players, as well as attracting more newcomers from the next season of PES.
Who are eligible for the reward?
You are eligible to get the PES ‘Veteran Bonus’ in PES 2021 if you are an eFootball PES 2020/ PES 2020 Lite player and buy the next version of PES as well, which will launch in a few months time. The rewards you get are probably going to be ‘Special Agents’ as hinted by Konami, but whether they will be Legend cards or normal cards are yet to be announced. However, the bonus is only applicable for console players for now.
On what basis will the rewards be awarded?
Whenever we hear of any rewards, the first thing that comes to our mind is that on what basis those rewards are going to be awarded. Well, for PES Veteran Bonus, Konami will take a look at two factors which will decide your fate regarding which rewards you get. The two factors as announced by Konami are:
Number of Iconic Moment Series and Legend players
There has been a huge luck factor in PES from the start, particularly for the players you get from different packs. The number of events that involved grinding has been pretty rare. Well, it seems like the PES Veteran Bonus will also encounter your pack luck. Irony, isn’t it? You will receive Special Agents depending on the number of Legends & Iconic Moments players you own in myClub mode in PES 2020. Luck strikes yet again!
Number of matches played in Matchday mode
Now, this is a factor which doesn’t involve luck simply because it says ‘Matches Played‘ instead of ‘Matches won’. Because with all the laggy gameplay and scripting involved, winning online matches in PES often depends on luck. You will receive Special Agents depending on the total number of matches you played in PES 2020’s Matchday mode. It will counter all different Matchdays that were available in-game throughout the year.
The detailed breakdown of PES Veteran Bonus rewards will be published soon by Konami. As soon as the official list is published, we’ll update you. So, stay tuned!
