    BGMI Server Error: How To Fix?

BGMI is currently the most popular game in India, which over 16 million daily active users. The game took the mobile gaming community in India by storm last month. Moreover, when the stable version rolled out finally, it allowed people to finally play the game for what it is and figure out how different it actually is from the likes of PUBG Mobile.

The good news is that BGMI is indeed slightly different from PUBG Mobile and that is for the best. The game offers features which PUBG Mobile did not. Moreover, these small but effective changes are exactly what will allow players to stick to the game. PUBG Mobile used to allow players to change their servers but because of certain issues, they locked the servers of different regions. So, you would be stuck with playing against only players in your own country. However, BGMI has no such server lock issue as the game allows you to manually change your server in the game.
