GodLike Esports, the team that achieved fourth place in the BGIS 2021 is the team receiving the Indian direct invite for the PMGC 2021.
Three other teams that placed above GodLike at BGIS 2021 - Skylightz, TSM, Team XO, did not receive an invite due to certain documentation issues.
Three documents that were required to be submitted by teams were player passports, double vaccination certificates, and negative RTPCR tests.

The most awaited Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) tournament of the year, Battlegrounds Mobile India Series (BGIS) 2021, concluded yesterday on 16th January with Skylightz Gaming walking away as the champions alongside INR 50,00,000 ($67,479 USD) in prize money.

However, it seems that the best BGMI team from India will not be receiving the coveted direct invite for the PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) 2021: Grand Finals. Instead, it will be the fourth-placed GodLike Esports that will be representing the country on the world stage.

The development was confirmed by a member of GodLike to AFK Gaming, who explained that due to certain documentation issues the other three teams who placed above them at BGIS 2021 (SKylightz, TSM, Team XO) will not be able to attend the international event.

GodLike Esports receives direct invite for PMGC 2021

BGIS 2021 witnessed a close-fought final game on the last day of the event, where no clear winner was in sight until the decisive match concluded. Skylightz Gaming having achieved a total of 273 points at the end managed to beat TSM with a difference of just three points to become the India champions.

Despite the achievement they will not be able to compete at PMGC 2021. Not only them but even the second and third-placed teams, TSM and Team XO will not be receiving an invite for the world championship.

According to information received by AFK Gaming via a member of GodLike Esports, Krafton tournament officials had requested all the teams competing in the BGIS 2021 to keep the passports of at least three members on standby with their management before 11:00 PM IST on 16th January.

However, no team was able to submit their passports at the aforementioned time. So, Krafton extended the submission date to 12:00 PM on 17th January, informing the winners (Skylightz Gaming) that passport and other supporting documents like negative RTPCR test and double vaccination certificate were required to be submitted before the deadline. In case, they were unable to provide all these documents then any team that had those ready, would be flying out to for PMGC 2021.

Unfortunately, all the top three teams of BGIS 2021 - Skylightz Esports, TSM, and Team XO, seemed to have faced some sort of documentation issues. Due to this, GodLike Esports got an opportunity and as they had all the necessary prerequisites, the Indian direct invite for the PMGC 2021 was handed to them.

Though an official statement by the organizers of the world championship remains to be announced. The rest of the PUBG Mobile teams competing at the event are set and confirmed.
