A few days back, players encountered a bug in Battlegrounds Mobile India that prevented them from downloading the resource packs within the game, including the maps. This hindered the matchmaking as most users were stuck only with the Erangel map and the Arcade Mode.

The developers addressed the issue through a post on the official website. They later identified the problem and fixed it through a patch around June 22nd, 4:25 p.m. IST. However, in case they are still facing the problem, here's a guide to resolve it.
