Who is IQOO Soul?
IQOO Soul is one of the most popular Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) teams from India. It has fielded a roster in the mobile esports scene since 2019. It enjoyed a lot of success in its initial years winning several PUBG Mobile LAN events but was unable to continue the same in BGMI (Indian version of PUBG Mobile). In 2022, IQOO Soul made a new team from scratch, signing upcoming young talents and won its first BGMI trophy in the BGMI Pro Series (BMPS) Season 1 event.
IQOO Soul is currently placed 32nd on the AFK Gaming BGMI Team Ranking.
Journey of IQOO SouL in 2023 Through AFK Gaming's BGMI Leaderboards
The return of BGMI was celebrated with a slew of third-party tournaments in the month of June where IQOO SouL managed to attain a couple of podium finishes but failed to register any wins.
Its journey started with a strong third-place finish in the Villager Esports DOMIN8R Series, followed by a couple of slow performances in BGMI Pro Scrims and Novum Overpower Series Season 1.
However, the recovery came just in time for the crucial Skyesports Champions Series where IQOO SouL finished second and proved that it was still a top team.
Towards the end of June, a couple of unsatisfactory results were obtained across Fight Night Pro Scrims and Upthrust Esports Challengers Showdown, but it did not affect the team all that much with more important tournaments on the horizon.
The collection of their performances in the month of June, which only consisted of third-party tournaments, resulted in IQOO SouL attaining a second-place finish on AFK Gaming’s BGMI Team Rankings with a total score of 7.60.
IQOO SouL only competed in the first half of July and ended up playing nine tournaments in a span of 16 days.
Overall, the team performed fairly well during this time and even ended up winning its first BGMI tournament since the unban, Fight Night Season 5, which was hosted by Global Esports. Apart from this, IQOO SouL attained a top-four finish in Lidoma Battleground Invitational, Ranbhoomi Season 2, and Battle For Revolution Season 1.
However, during this time many other teams also performed really well, resulting in IQOO SouL slipping down to the fifth position on AFK Gaming’s BGMI Team Rankings in the month of July with a total score of 11.08.
This was a much slower month for IQOO SouL who competed in only three tournaments and failed to attain a podium finish across all of them.
The team finished 13th in Upthrust Esports Survivors Throne Season 4 and 17th in BGMI Masters Series Season 2, but on the bright side, it managed to qualify for the Battlegrounds Mobile India Series 2023 by attaining fifth place during The Grind.
The poor showing resulted in IQOO SouL slipping down to eighth position on AFK Gaming’s BGMI Team Rankings for the month of August with a total score of 11.08.
An even scarce month when it came to competing in tournaments, IQOO SouL made a statement by winning the OS Invitational Season 1, lifting a trophy after many tournaments to revive its long-lost identity.
Unfortunately, the team could not replicate its performance during the Upthrust Esports Pro Showdown Season 2 which was the subsequent tournament.
After stumbling for many months on AFK Gaming’s BGMI Team Rankings, IQOO SouL managed to climb up to the seventh position in the month of September with a total score of 15.58.
Similar to last month, IQOO SouL started on a high by winning the Battle For Revolution Season 2, showing a lot of promise before the biggest tournament of the season, Battlegrounds Mobile India Series 2023.
The first official event of the year by Krafton was a disaster for the team as it crashed out with a 23rd-place finish, leaving the entire community in a state of shock.
Right after registering a short climb on AFK Gaming’s BGMI Team Rankings, it was time for IQOO SouL to drop once again. The team finished in the tenth position with a total score of 21.58, its lowest dip on the leaderboards thus far.
Repeating the formula once again, IQOO SouL showed promise at the start of this month by placing fourth in back-to-back tournaments, Skyesports Championship 5.0 and Upthrust Esports Diwali Battle 2023.
Due to its performance in the month of November, IQOO SouL managed to budge itself up one rank and is currently in the ninth position on AFK Gaming Team Ranking.
The month of December had only one tournament, the Battlegrounds Mobile India Pro Series (BMPS) 2023 LAN Grand Finals.
The IQOO Soul squad put forth consistent performances in the league stage and of the BMPS 2023 event. It made a good comeback on the last day of the Grand Finals but it wasn’t enough as it placed fifth in the event.
Due to its performance in the BMPS 2023 event, IQOO Soul climbed one rank and was placed eight with a score of 32.47 in the.
IQOO Soul has played three events in January 2024 so far with its new BGMI roster and has shown inconsistent performances in all three events.
IQOO Soul placed 14th in the Upthrust Esports Survivors Saga Season 3, 22nd in the Bingo Nachos Gameon Cup and 16th in the Upthrust Esports The Multiverse Series 2024 events.
As of 20th January 2024, IQOO Soul is placed 32nd in the AFK Gaming BGMI Team Rankings due to its inconsistent performances in recent events.
