Besides the main tournament, the qualified teams for the Afterparty Showdown, Team Soul and 7Sea Esports, two Indian teams had to be seen. However, things may have started to take a different turn as BGMI’s sudden ban came as a shock to everyone.
Naman ‘Mortal’ Mathur speaks for millions BGMI Fans in the country say that if one of the biggest esports games is removed by the government, the trust of several players will be broken. He has even tagged the Ministry of Information and Technology to take this matter forward and is hopeful that Krafton will take a positive decision.
When asked about Team Soul’s participation in the upcoming global PUBG Mobile tournament, he revealed it would be revealed by Tuesday. Your team will receive an official notification from Krafton about the status of their participation in this tournament.
As for 7Sea Esports, the owners have not commented on the matter, but it looks like a similar fate will be held for this team, which made their direct entry into the Afterparty Showdown from the BGMI Showdown qualifiers if Team Soul is not allowed. All these teams can do now is ‘wait’ for an official statement.
