Team HAVK becomes the first Indian team to shine at an International PUBG event

Team HAVK represented India at the Asia Pacific Predator League 2022, a LAN competition featuring the best Asian PUBG teams.

Team HAVK finished tenth after three days with 64 points, 32 finish points, and 32 placement points. On the other hand, they were unable in acquiring even a single WWCD (Winner Winner Chicken Dinner).

One of the finest PUBG players in India, Pratik “Aurum” Mehra, who is also the captain of this squad, was pleased with the performance of the team. He stated that “This is the best performance of any Indian team who went out to represent India in PUBG PC.”

Team HAVK put on quite a show at an international PUBG tournament in Japan. Asia Pacific Predator League 2022‘s grand final stage came to an end yesterday after three days of nonstop activity from November 11 to 13.

This competition included a total of sixteen teams from Asia, all of which had to compete in a number of different regional qualifiers in order to gain a position in the event.

Through their performance in the Indian Qualifier earlier in the year, Team HAVK was able to secure a slot for themselves in the main tournament. The following players were included in the starting lineup:

1. Pratik “Aurum” Mehra – IGL

2. Vinay “Hades” Rao

3. Vedang “Vedzz” Chavan

4. Karthik “Killua” Vijayakumar

5. Habibi

At the international LAN tournament that was held in Japan, the team competed to the best of its abilities and ended up placing tenth overall after accruing a total of 64 points over the course of 15 matches, with only a difference of two points separating them from the team that finished ninth, Macan Semeru.

“The performance with (a) two month old team and a very minimal amount of competitive practice due to lack of scrims for Indian teams, (and) to play against (an) international lobby, our performance was still average versus the strongest teams of the SEA area,” HAVK captain Aurum said after the competition.

Only the top three teams were awarded a portion of the overall $120,000 USD prize money.

1. Genius Esports | $75,000 USD

2. DAMWON Gaming | $30,000 USD

3. ArkAngel Predator | $15,000 USD

Taking into consideration that the esports environment for PUBG is virtually nonexistent in the nation as a whole, the team put up an impressive display. Considering that the team only participates in one international competition each year, these performances are undeniably more than just satisfactory.
