These 20 teams will have the ultimate opportunity to become the first PMIT Champions and etch their names in history. There are some well reputed teams in the finals who are well known youtubers and are renowned in the Indian Gaming Community.
At the same time, there are some surprise packages who have showed some real spark and are totally capable of holding their own in the finals.
Some well reputed teams such as Team Entity, Team X Spark, Mega X couldn't reach to the finals given their bad luck in the knockout rounds given the nature of the tournament. This can give us an idea about the difficulty it posed and the consistency it required to reach the finals.
Whereas, reigning PUBG Mobile India Series and Pubg Mobile Club Open India champions, Soul which consist of the biggest and the most popular PUBG Mobile name 'Mortal', didn't participate in the tournament due to a last minute change in their roster.
Winner Prediction: Orange Rock Esports
This team consist of Carry, Mavi, Sandhu and Ex1stence. Looking at their performances in this tournament and the past couple of months, Team OR is the most consistent team out there. They are not afraid of a fight and would come out winners in almost all four vs four fights.
They have a distinct aggressive style of play and with Mavi playing as the flanker of the team, every member give cover fire from different directions due to which they are able to cut rotations of other teams and garner high kill count chicken dinners more often than not. My bet is on Orange Rock.
The Grand Finals are going to be held in Biswa Bangla Convention Centre, Kolkata. For people who can't be out there, the whole event will be broadcasted live on PUBG Mobile India Youtube Channel from 12 PM IST. Catch the whole action on these action packed these two days to witness some laser 6x sprays, some fearsome AWM shots and a whole lot of Chicken Dinners.]
