The PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) 2021 starts this Friday, 21 January. In total, the 16 best teams worldwide will battle it out for the treasured trophy and gigantic prize pool.
The competition is played entirely online, but some teams have moved to specific regions to avoid lag issues. While six sides have already traveled to Singapore for the competition, three have set base in Dubai.
The invited team from India, GodLike Esports, has arrived in Dubai for the PMGC 2021. The confirmation came through different stories posted by the players on Instagram.
They have added Skylightz Gaming Saumraj to their roster as the sixth player. He had the most finishes at the recent BGIS Finals and was also the player who survived the most.
Neyoo was the MVP of the BGIS, while ZGod had the maximum revives.
GodLike roster for PMGC 2021 Finals
- Jonathan - Jonathan Jude Amaral
- Neyoo - Suraj Nityanand Majumdar
- ClutchGod - Vivek Aabhad Horo
- ZGod - Abhishek Choudhary
- Ghatak - Abhijeet Andhare
- Saumraj - Saumya Raj
Three Turkish teams, S2G, 1907FB, and Next Ruya, as well as Navi, Stalwart, Furious, and 1907FB, have all traveled to Singapore, while GodLike, Alpha7, and Nigma Galaxy will compete from Dubai.
Due to PUBG Mobile's restriction in India and the lack of a rebranded version, the Indian team did not compete at the PMGC 2020. The last global tournament that any Indian team played was the PUBG Mobile World League in mid-2020.
The roster of GodLike played as TSM Entity back then and secured sixth place in both the league and finals. Jonathan was MVP for weeks 2 and 3 of the PMWL League stages.
GodLike Esports was ranked 4th in the BGIS 2021, but due to lack of documentation (mainly passport and vaccination) among the top three ranked teams (Skylightz, TSM, and XO), they were invited to the PMGC finals.
The finals will be live-streamed on the PUBG Mobile official YouTube channel from 16.30 IST.
