Team IND's Roster Provides New Options

Team IND were the final team to qualify for the World League from South Asia, securing the last spot in the grand finals stage. The team has previously represented the region in both PMCO Spring and Fall and are a legacy team in the region with both domestic success and international experience. While they’ve had their ups and downs this season, the team were able to come together in the PMPL South Asia finals, where they finished in 6th place. While the team already have a strong 4 man core who have been playing with each other for a while, the addition of new talent will give them options to both experiment and go places they are yet to reach. 420op’s close and medium range skills is something that is lacking in Team IND’s current roster. The squad known for their excellent positional gameplay have often faced criticism for a low kill tally, despite boasting Slayer and Snax, two of the more deadly players in the region.
