Godlike Esports is one of the veteran and well known esports organizations in India. It has invested in multiple esports titles such as Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) (male and female rosters), Call of Duty Mobile (CODM), Free Fire, FIFA 23, PUBG New State, and Valorant. Its BGMI team did not have much success in 2023 but has put forth consistent performances to start the 2024 season.
As of 20th January 2024 Godlike Esports is placed 7th in the AFK Gaming BGMI Team Ranking.
GodLike Esports Performance Check: Journey Through AFK BGMI Leaderboards
Despite the reputation that GodLike Esports commands in the regional scene, its performance was far from it last year. The only tournament worth mentioning is BGMI Masters Series 2022 where it finished as the runner-up, an achievement worth mentioning.
Shortly after, BGMI was banned but the lineup decided to stick together. Unfortunately, this did not have any major impact on their performance following the game’s return.
GodLike Esports started with a bleak 10th place finish in its first appearance after the unban, in the Villager Esports DOMINA8R Series. The team failed to recover, spiralled out of control, and recorded more disappointing performances through the month.
The team registered its best performance for June in the Upthrust Esports Challengers Showdown by securing a 6th place finish.
Its performance in June, which only consisted of third-party tournaments, resulted in GodLike Esports dropping down to the 42nd position on AFK Gaming’s BGMI Team Rankings with no score to its name.
Before July started GodLike Esports bid farewell to Arshpreet "GiLL" Singh, who had served more than a year with the team. Surprisingly just one week later, GodLike Esports shocked everyone by toppling multiple top-performing BGMI teams to win the IQOO Pro Series and pocketing ₹400,000 INR in prize money.
It was the star player Jonathan "JONATHAN" Amaral who played unbelievably well to help his team win. He was named the MVP of this tournament and fans of the organization were ecstatic to see this sudden 180 flip from the side.
However, this victory turned out to be more of a fluke than an actual achievement, because immediately after skyrocketing to success the team just crashed and burned, attaining double-digit positions in six consecutive tournaments.
Nodwin BGMI Champions Cup | 20th
Villager Esports Pro Invitational 2023 | 19th
Skyesports Skirmish Series Season 2 | 11th
Ranbhoomi Season 2 | 18th
Battle For Revolution Season 1 | 16th
India Today League Invitationals | 16th
All hopes were ten feet below rock bottom and there seemed to be absolutely no signs of recovery for the side. Just then, out of the blue, GodLike Esports changed gears that had a thick coat of rust all over and pulled a blinder of a performance to finish 4th.
GodLike Esports participated in a lot of tournaments in July but was consistently out of the top ten, still its overall standing on AFK Gaming’s BGMI Team Rankings witnessed a massive increment as it secured the 10th position with a total of 4.03 points.
The last performance by GodLike Esports was a surprise, definitely a pleasant one, but still, nobody was ready to accept it wholeheartedly just yet.
Sadly, the feeling that the fans felt was accurate because not only did GodLike Esports perform horribly in two of the biggest tournaments of the year, BGMI 2023: The Grind and BGMS Season 2, but it also lost a lot of confidence and character in the process.
August was a huge disaster for GodLike Esports and there was no way to justify its performance, as a result, a lot of tough questions were raised to which not a lot could be said or explained.
Over on AFK Gaming’s BGMI Team Rankings, the team once again slipped down by five positions to stand at the 15th spot with an unchanged total of 4.03 points.
GodLike Esports returned after a long break of about a month towards the end of September and just participated in two tournaments where it performed well. The overall performance still lacked polish but the team seemed to be in a much better state of mind and played with good synergy.
The team finished 7th in both its events, OS Invitational Season 1 and Upthrust Esports Pro Showdown Season 2, but it was not enough to propel it upwards on AFK Gaming’s BGMI Team Rankings where it fell by two more positions, standing at the 17th rank and stagnated with 4.03 points.
Through the entire month of October, GodLike Esports only participated in one tournament, Battle For Revolution Season 2, where it bettered its performance and took a 5th place finish.
Now the fans were starting to believe once again, that the team might be on the right track and could turn things around sooner or later by stringing a couple of big performances in important tournaments.
Unfortunately, just when the ship was almost ready to set sail again, one of its masts brokedown as Rudra “Spower” left the team to join Blind Esports, leaving the team in a state of uncertainty on its road to recovery.
There was a change in the total points of GodLike Esports which marginally moved up to 4.43 on AFK Gaming’s BGMI Team Rankings. However, its position on the overall leaderboard went down by one, slipping to the 18th rank.
GodLike Esports stepped back from the scene once again for well over a month and took its time to prepare itself for November and the road ahead.
Once again, time away from the server turned out to be a boon for the side as it came back strong, attaining a 6th place finish at the Skyesports Championship 5.0 and achieving an 8th position at the Upthrust Esports Diwali Battle 2023.
A victory still eluded the squad but GodLike Esports displayed consistency for the first time in a long time which is always a huge positive for any competitive side.
For the first time on AFK Gaming’s BGMI Team Rankings, this team showed growth in all regards, jumping up a spot on the overall leaderboard to currently place 17th with a total score of 6.63.
The month of December had only one tournament, the Battlegrounds Mobile India Pro Series (BMPS) 2023 LAN Grand Finals.
Godlike Esports did not have the best start to the BMPS 2023 event but grabbed momentum towards the end of the league stage. It wasn't enough as the team placed 20th and could not qualify for the LAN grand Finals.
At the end of the 2023 BGMI season, Godlike Esports was placed at the seventeenth position with a score of 6.63 in the AFK Gaming BGMI Team Ranking.
Godlike Esports has played four events in January 2024 so far and has shown consistent performances in some of the events.
Godlike Esports was placed 19th in the Upthrust Esports Survivors Saga Season 3, 5th in the Bingo Nachos Gameon Cup and 17th in The World Of Battle Winter Invitational. It made a staggering comeback in the Upthrust Esports The Multiverse Series 2024 event and grabbed the 3rd place.
As of 20th January 2024 Godlike Esports is placed 7th in the AFK Gaming BGMI Team Rankings.
