Overall standings of BGMI Invitational finals
The tournament was a seven-day affair, starting from 20 September. Earlier, 18 teams qualified for the Grand Finals from Group A, the Group B qualifiers, and the Play-Ins (six from each stage).
The event witnessed major upsets early as many popular and top-performing teams were eliminated while the underdog teams qualified for the finals.
Team Celsius and Esports Empire, two emerging sides in the BGMI scene, showed their mettle, claiming the 4th and the 6th spots, respectively. The former showed consistency in the event while Esports Empire showed superior gunpower by securing the most finishes, tied with Chemin Esports (i.e., 52 eliminations).
Among other top teams, Global Esports found their footing at the end, as they clinched two Chicken Dinners on the final day to finish 5th. OR Esports also had a decent run, ending at the 7th spot.
The newly acquired division of Rivalry Esports, dubbed Rivalry NorthEast, couldn't find any momentum in the finals and finished at the 18th spot. Another team, Xposers, who had performed exceptionally well in the qualifiers, failed to build on that momentum in the finals to finish 12th.
Hydra Official and Mayhem, too, showed flashes of brilliance in the finals but couldn't perform consistently and finished at the 11th and 13th places, respectively.
