This year, there will be no Indian teams in the PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC). Five teams have been invited directly to the league stage by Tencent. They are DRS Gaming from Nepal and Gaimin Gladiators from the CIS.
This is the first time since the event began that there will be no Indian teams in it. Since India has banned PUBG Mobile, Indian players can’t really play in official events.
DRS Gaming and Gaimin Gladiators Receive Direct Invites
From November 2 to December 10, 2023, the PMGC will take place. There are three million dollars in prizes in the competition.
Indian Teams are disappointed in being excluded
Teams from India have said they are upset that they won’t be able to attend PMGC 2023. These people have asked Tencent to change its mind and let Indian teams fight.
Tencent’s Choice Sparks Controversy
Tencent’s choice to keep Indian teams out of the PMGC 2023 has caused a lot of debate. Some people say the move is unfair to Indian players, while others say it was the right one because PUBG Mobile is illegal in India.
The Future of Indian Teams in PUBG Mobile Esports
It’s not clear if Indian teams will be able to play in future PMGC competitions. It’s also hard to say what will happen with PUBG Mobile gaming in India. The ban on PUBG Mobile is still in place, and it doesn’t look like it will be lifted any time soon.
The Indian e-sports scene has been hit hard by the news that Indian teams will not be able to compete in PMGC 2023. For Indian players and teams, it’s a warning of how the ban on PUBG Mobile has changed things.
