  • Godlike, Marcos Gaming and 8bit were eliminated from PMIS 2020.
  • Both Godlike and Marcos were invited teams while 8bit qualified via the open qualifiers. 

Day 4 of the PMIS 2020 qualifiers saw 3 big weights eliminated, with 2 of them being direct invites. Earlier on day 1 both iNSANE Esports and Powerhouse were eliminated. However, both teams eventually made it to the next stage courtesy of other teams in their group being disqualified. Unfortunately, a similar situation hasn’t yet prevailed for the likes of 8bit, Godlike and Marcos Gaming.

Three Big Names Hit the Dust 

Playing from Group 10, both Godlike and 8bit had a rough time as they failed to go the distance in either of the games. While Godlike did finish in second place in the second map, their early exit in the first map forced them to end in 5th place. With 12 kills to their name, 8bit ended in 4th place but were still in contention to qualify via the kill leaders table (The top 8 teams with the highest kills will advance to the next stage as well). However, by the end of the day, they dropped out of the top 8 and have been eliminated from the competition as well. Godlike, despite their World League spot, will be left disappointed after missing their chance in PMIS 2020. The team's owner, Kronten was also seen playing with the likes of Ghatak in Team Supari Killers, but they failed to qualify.

In Group 12, Marcos Gaming failed to make it into the top 3 falling short by just one point. The entire group was decided by extremely fine margins with the top four teams all separated by 1 point each. Both Marcos and Godlike were playing with relatively new lineups as Marcos had brought in Aman and MantyOP for the upcoming season. Meanwhile, Godlike had added Ronak after the departure of Gill.
