Stalwart Esports has signed up Team Freestyle’s roster for the PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL) 2020- South Asia, Season 2. Stalwart had secured a direct slot to the tournament after finishing up as third in PMCO Fall Split 2020, India. But, due to the wake of the recent India-China dispute, PUBG Mobile was banned in India from the 2nd of September. And, PUBG Mobile Corporation banned Indian team slots that were qualified for PMPL 2020 South Asia, Season 2. This had put many Esports team in India under pressure, as they had spent big money in preparing for this Grand Tournament.
Team Freestyle’s Roster will play for Stalwart Esports
While the other teams were in turmoil, Stalwart took the initiative to tackle the situation. Reluctant to give up their slot, Stalwart started hunting for talents from other South Asian teams. Initially, they planned to sign-up a team from Nepal. As this plan didn’t come to fruition, Stalwart had to find another team within a short time before losing their slot.
And that’s when Team Freestyle’s roster approached Stalwart. Team Freestyle’s roster ended up as 9 in the PMCO Fall Split 2020– Pakistan, due to network issue in the region and failed to secure a slot for PMPL S2. But their performance in PUBG Mobile World League and PMCO impressed Stalwart, which decided to sign their roster up. Now, Team Freestyle’s roster will play under Team Stalwart with the title STEfs.
