Chetan “Kronten” Chandgude, the owner of GodLike Esports, has revealed that he is planning to shift his organisation to Dubai in the upcoming days if Battlegrounds Mobile India is not unbanned in the country.
The BGMI ban has affected a lot of professional Indian rosters for almost a month. With the back and forth between the Indian government and Krafton, the future of BGMI remains to be very vague in the country. Amidst all of this chaos, Indian organizations have to decide their future actions and plan accordingly.
Many Indian BGMI organizations have potentially planned to shift to the PUBG: New State and take advantage of its rising popularity in India after the BGMI ban. One of the examples is Team Esportswala who recently hired a new PUBG: New State roster in preparations of upcoming massive tournaments.
GodLike Esports has been in the epicenter of BGMI esports for the past two years. It was one of the first organizations from India to have a PUBG Mobile team and their popularity grew multifold when they hired the famous ex-TSM roster of Jonathan and company. The recent few changes have left the team with a lot of potential and no platform to showcase it for now.
Kronten revealed his plans of relocation on one of his streams. According to him, the BGMI team will shift back to PUBG Mobile in case they decide to move to Dubai in the future.
This certainly has some added advantages such as having a better ecosystem to perform into and exposure into global tournaments via a coordinated structure but it would be a big loss to Indian esports ecosystem to let go of one of their legendary mobile esports organizations of all time.
GodLike has already made a next move in PUBG Mobile esports by preparing a Mongolian roster in partnership with Stalwart Esports. This roster goes by the name of GodLike Stalwart and if they decide to move to Dubai, this will be their yet another international move.
