In a recent live stream, Suraj Nityanand "Neyoo" Majumdar talked about Zgod leaving esports and said, “I recently talked to Zgod and he informed me that he does not want to compete any more. He told me that whatever incident took place, he was the villain in that situation for the audience even though it was not his fault. Apollo also said that he wants to play with Zgod as Zgod is a team player and listens to calls and reacts faster. If he continues to play or not will be cleared by him when he streams.”

Neyoo also said that the audience does not know how things at the backend work. He said that, “Even when I used to play competitively, if I was given a call to rush, I would just rush without a second thought and used to get eliminated most of the time but for the audience it used to be like that I randomly rushed and just died. So I also used to get hate for those kinds of things.”

Skyesports, on 3rd March, had revealed that after an investigation they found out that Arshpreet "GiLL" Singh was fielded in place of Zgod from Zgods' BGMI account. They put out a statement and said that this kind of situation falls under ringing due to which Godlike Esports was disqualified from the event.

The statement also mentioned that both the team manager and analyst were removed effective immediately for that decision.
