The report suggests that popular esports team Orange Rock has announced its team roster for the BGMI tournament. The roster reveals that Destro, Gill, Anto, Vexe, and Aditya will be part of the team. Here is the full list of players along with their roles.
- Ammar aka “Destro” Khan – In-game Leader
- Arshpreet aka “Gill” Gill Singh – Rifler
- Joe “Anto” Michael Anto – Entry fragger and assaulter
- Arth “Vexe” Trivedi – Rifler
- Aditya “Aditya” Mathe – Entry fragger
So far the game has garnered more than 5 million downloads and the game developers are already thanking players for welcoming the game title with such big numbers. Krafton is offering in-game rewards to the players as a gesture of thanksgiving. The rewards include a Supply Crate Coupon, 2 BP Cards, and 2 EXP Cards, and more.
Further, the report claimed that the company is expected to conduct a huge esports tournament which is going to be similar to what was conducted with PUBG Mobile. Currently, the game is still in beta form and it seems that the company might take some time to announce tournaments.
IGN India was also informed by familiar sources that the BGMI pro players are demanding higher salaries (almost double). However, do note that Krafton has not said anything about the upcoming esports tournament in India officially, so it’s recommended to take this information with a pinch of salt.
