  • Sources close to AFK Gaming suggest that Total Gaming may be picking up the ex-Critical X lineup and field 2 Free Fire teams.
  • The parting seems friendly according to the official announcement by Critical X.
  • If CRX Elite indeed gets picked up by Total Gaming, this will essentially be a merging of the top two Free Fire teams in India.

Just as Critical X lets go of their popular CRX Elite, rumours have been circulating that another wildly popular Indian Free Fire organisation may pick up Taneja, Pahadi, Jonty and Iconic. Sources close to AFK Gaming suggest that Total Gaming may be picking up the ex-Critical X lineup and field 2 Free Fire teams.  

Total Gaming After Vasiyo and Golden

The updated Total Gaming lineup will consist of Fozyajay, Bala and 2 new players after Vasiyo and Golden’s departure. The second lineup will now consist of ex-CRX Elite players Taneja, Pahadi, Jonty and Iconic. 

Total gaming is owned by one of the biggest Free Fire content creators in India called Ajay a.k.a. Ajju Bhai. The team’s YouTube channel currently has 16.7 million subscribers and 2 million followers on Instagram. Ajay streams Free Fire on his channel every day to millions of viewers. Total Gaming won the Free Fire India Championship 2020 (FFIC), one of the biggest Free Fire tournaments hosted by Garena.

CRX Elite Disbanded Earlier This Week

CRX Elite had been dominant and were the table toppers of the Free Fire India Championship 2020 Fall League stages. The team managed to place second in the recently concluded Free Fire India Championship 2020. Pahadi took home a cash prize of INR 60,000 as the MVP of the Grand Finals at FFIC. However, in the Continental Series, the team failed to perform up to standards. If CRX Elite indeed gets picked up by Total Gaming, this will essentially be a merging of the top two Free Fire teams in India.
