BGMI Masters Series 2022 featured the nation’s top BGMI Esports teams
The tournament, which initially kicked off with 24 teams, went through 3 preliminary weeks to weed off the bottom 8 teams while the top 16 made their way into the Grand Finals. The weekly league stages saw much action, with more than one team missing out on the Grand Finals by very slim margins which were more than attainable given the pleasure of playing at least one more match.
But sadly, that’s not how eliminations work. The Grand Finals was a 5-day affair with all the teams turning up to show their very best and to take the trophy and a portion of the prize pool home. Right off the bat, GodLike, probably India’s most successful lineup since the inception of BGMI esports took off with a super aggressive style of play and sat atop the leaderboard.
It did come as a bit of surprise though, given GodLike’s poor form in the recent tournaments. However, from day 2 onwards, Team SouL, regarded as the most in-form team started climbing up the table with a show of their trademark balanced gameplay and their star player Goblin leapfrogged into the MVP list.
On day 3, as SouL took back the lead, it looked like the team was well on its way to another trophy. But a poor display from SouL saw the title race turn into a 4-way fight with Global Esports, Orangutan, SouL, and GodLike all contending for the trophy. A stellar comeback performance from Global Esports saw them clinch the title away from GodLike Esports by the slimmest of margins and became the champions.
