BGMI‘s popularity in India knows no bounds. Moreover, with the Esports market growing exponentially in the country, it was only a matter of time before some serious smartphone gaming enthusiasts started riding the Esports waves. Thankfully, this opportunity was taken with open arms. BGMI has become one of India’s biggest propellers for the Esports industry. With this, more options have been presented for Indian gamers to show off their skills. Now, we’ve got some of the best players in the world representing the country at international tournaments. Bearing this in mind, we’re going to check out the best BGMI teams in India.
Let’s dive into the list!
In the recent BGIS (Battlegrounds Mobile India Series) tournament, TSM FTX was one of the most dominating teams. The 2021 edition saw TSM FTX get up to 33 kills in a single match, showing off their gunplay and erratic yet sound strategies. This team is one of the most ruthless in the country, showcasing an aggressive style that is often unmatched by rival teams. Additionally, they also won the OR Championship – Legends Rise tournament in 2022, cementing their place in Indian Esports.
This is another stalwart BGMI team in India. They’ve been highly consistent in previous tournaments, securing respectable finishes. However, the addition of Snax, an all-around player, has completely revamped their playing style. They exhibited noticeable improvements in tournaments like Skyesports Grand Slam 2022 and Upthurst Esports India Rising tournaments, clinching essential wins to rise to the top. Now, they’re one of the best BGMI teams in India. If you plan to beat them, you’ll have to bring more than just your A-game!
At this point in time, very few teams have the gravitas of Team SouL in the Indian Esports scene. There’s a good reason for this too. The team was packed full with some of the best BGMI players in the country, such as Mortal and Viper in the earlier days. While they faced a bit of a dip, they’ve again risen through the ranks to become serious contenders in many tournaments. In 2022, the team has already won some valuable trophies, and Akshat’s form has been impeccable. We’ll have to wait and see if the team bounces back and reaches their previous levels of glory.
GodLike Esports is one of the relatively newer BGMI teams on this list. However, they already have some of the best BGMI players in India, such as Clutchgod. They were the very first Indian Esports team to represent the country in the PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC 2021). Not only have they been adding podium finishes in challenging tournaments like PMIS (PUBG Mobile India Series) 2020, but they’re also finding success in multiple S-tier events. Some of these include the Fall Split Global Finals. With the run of form they’re in, there’s a good chance that they’ll dethrone some of the best-rated teams around the world.
At one point in time, OR Esports was one of the most feared BGMI teams in India. While they’re still very good today, they’ve had to face some significant changes in recent years. During their most dominating years, they ranked second in the PUBG Mobile World League Season 0 – East. Now, some of their most prominent players have left for greener pastures, most notably RO recruiting Viru. They have recruited some fresh faces and new talents, however. If they can make the team work at its best and keep up the consistency, it’s only a matter of time before OR Esports reaches new heights.
