  • Indian organization, UMumba has announced that they are letting go of their current PUBG MOBILE roster. 
  • The team will announce a new lineup for the upcoming season soon. 

UMumba has announced that they will be letting go of the current PUBG MOBILE roster and they will be announcing a new roster soon. The announcement comes after the team failed to qualify for the PUBG MOBILE World League, finishing in 9th place in the finals and in 11th in the league stage. While the team started off the league stage with a bang, grabbing 2 chicken dinners in the opening week, they quickly fell of as their performance went on a sharp downward spiral, soon after. In the finals, the team had some middle of the pack performances and were simply unable to contend with the likes of the teams who eventually qualified.

While UMumba did impress on a few occasions and had some inspired runs in a few tournaments, the lack of consistency both in terms of results and performance was a disappointment. Some of their players such as 420OP had quite the season, and have established themselves as hot prospects for the coming season. Meanwhile, IGL Bhishma is also a veteran of the scene and one who has a reputation of being one of the few good captains in the Indian scene.
