Ahead of the PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) 2021 finals, esports caster and analyst Ocean Sharma has been loaned to Godlike Esports. The news came via a recent announcement by Indian esports organization Skylightz Gaming.
The announcement was made on the official Instagram page of Skylightz Gaming. The organization stated that the decision was taken in order to ensure the growth of Indian esports and in the interest of bringing glory back to the country.
In the post, Skylightz Gaming also revealed that as two of their players did not meet the eligibility criteria for the event, the team could not compete in the tournament.
Godlike Esports qualified for the PMGC: 2021 finals after the three teams above them on the BGIS: 2021 leaderboard could not meet the PMGC eligibility criteria owing to issues with passports and vaccination reports.
Ocean Sharma runs the popular YouTube channel GamingProOcean, where he posts BGMI-related content. He is also a caster and analyst and has previously worked for the popular Indian esports organization OREsports. Getting Ocean on board will certainly be a great help to Godlike Esports. The inclusion will add a new dimension to the team's fierce and aggressive game style.
