The Wildcard phase will begin after the Play-ins of the Free Fire India Championship 2021, which will be a challenge for many teams.
The focus of attention will be on Total Gaming, which did not have the best of group stages. Nonetheless, they are doing well and are stronger than ever with the addition of Delete.
This will be a time of redemption for PVS Gaming, which missed out on a Finals spot by a few points. While seasoned teams such as Desi Gamers and TSM would also be able to qualify for the Finals if they could rectify their mistake.
