Some of the invited teams have been struggling with weak performances for a few months and even failed to qualify for the BGMI BMPS Season 1, which was eventually won by Team Soul.
GodLike and TSM were some of the major teams that had poor performances in the BMOC. BGIS Champion Skylightz was also on the list of eliminated teams from the BMOC and are definitely hoping for a comeback at this event.
Both Orangutan and Chemin, who failed to qualify for both BGIS and BMPS Season 1, will surely want to win their first major tournament. Underdog FS Esports had a great run at BMPS and will certainly be one of the teams to watch out for during the event.
Team Soul and OR Esports are in fantastic form as they grabbed first and second place in the Pro Series. Global Esports has won four third-party tournaments so far this year and also managed to secure fourth position in the BMPS Finals.
One of the biggest talking points was the controversy between TSM and GodLike. Both teams will be eager to return to their original form and put on a great performance for their loyal fans and followers.
Interested fans will get to watch all the upcoming games on Star Sports 2, Loco, and Glance in the languages of Hindi, English, and Tamil from 08.00 pm to 11.30 pm (IST), starting June 24, 2022.
