However krafton didn’t mention further dates and schedule regarding this tournament but it is expected to take place immediate after Streamers Battle. The official BGMI website provides little information other than the fact that it will be available soon. The esports competition should be comparable to what PUBG Mobile esports were before the game was banned by the Indian government. If the regulations do not change, a player should be allowed to assemble a four-person team to compete in the qualifying matches.
Krafton also released a teaser on their official Youtube Channel
