Who Is 8Bit?
The mobile gaming scene in India has seen a surge in players since the launch of battle royale mobile games in India, particularly Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI). Many players have formed their own teams to play events and tournaments and one such team was 8Bit Esports. The team was formed in 2019 for Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) Mobile esports events but now has transformed into one of the biggest esports organizations in India which boasts not only esports players but also dozens of content creators.
The 8Bit BGMI team has performed consistently since the game’s return in May 2023 due to which was placed at the 12th spot with a score of 22 in the AFK Gaming BGMI Team Rankings to end the 2023 BGMI season.
The 8Bit BGMI squad played a couple of events to start the 2024 BGMI season but the team has been inconsistent throughout due to which it is placed at the 26th spot in the AFK Gaming BGMI Team Rankings.
8Bit: Rosters and Achievements
8Bit is one of the veteran esports organizations in India and has fielded an esports roster since 2019 in PUBG Mobile, and now in BGMI. It was one of the first teams to represent India at the global stage in PUBG Mobile Star Challenge (PMSC) Asia 2018. The first esports roster was formed for PUBG Mobile tournaments but has gone through major changes since then. Many well known esports athletes like Sahil “Omega” Jakhar, Akshat “Akshat” Goel, Vivek "ClutchGod" Horo, Rudra “Spower”, Parv “Regaltos” Singh and Hemanth “Ultron” Sethi have represented the organization.
This is 8BitxCS Esports’ BGMI roster 2024:
8Bit joined hands with CS Esports for the Battlegrounds Mobile India Pro Series (BMPS) 2023 event where it had four players from CS Esports and two players from Team 8Bit. The collaboration was due to the fact that the 8Bit squad was unable to qualify for the BGMI India Series (BGIS) 2023 main event where the top 96 teams were invited to the BMPS 2023 event. Some of the players from the 8Bit squad also left for different teams such as Harshit “Beast” Yadav left for Global Esports and Dhruv “Madman” Gaur left for Hyderabad Hydras.
Madman made a return to the squad on 11th January 2024 and is currently playing the Upthrust Esports The Patriot Cup event.
These are Team 8Bits’ BGMI roster’s results in some of the BGMI events:
The 8Bit BGMI squad was one of the most aggressive teams since BGMI’s return in May. The team dominated across multiple third party BGMI tournaments and achieved the best result in the Upthrust Esports Ranbhoomi 2.0 where it was crowned the champion. Although the squad was consistent in multiple third party events in the initial stages, it could not replicate the same in official events like the BGMI India Series (BGIS) 2023 where it was eliminated from the open qualifiers. It ended the 2023 BGMI season by qualifying for the BMPS 2023 Grand Finals and was placed 6th in the LAN Finals due to consistent performances.
