Hrishav Explains Hydra Esports’ Absence From Tier 1 Scrims
Hydra Esports’ popular content creator Hrishav “Hrishav” Kumar recently addressed Hydra Esports’ absence from Tier-1 scrims. Hrishav stated that the organizer of the scrims, Upthrust Esports (UE), had no involvement in the team selection process. Hrishav noted that the team was not able to play together due to this slot issue and stated that it would be playing together in evening scrims.
Hydra Esports to soon start playing Tier 1 scrims
Recently, Hydra Esports was absent from the Upthrust Esports BGMI scrims. In a recent livestream, Hrishav addressed this absence and stated that he knows Karthik, the owner of Upthrust Esports, who informed him that they are not the ones deciding which teams will play and which teams will not. “ They are just hosting the scrims, as they are tournament organizers,” he added.
Hrishav explained that the teams participating in the scrims had formed an organization and were voting amongst themselves to determine which teams would play and which ones would not. As a result, only the teams that have been selected by this group of teams are playing in the T1 Scrims, and Hydra Esports has not been included in this process.
Hrishav clarified that Upthrust Esports has no involvement in the selection of teams for the scrims. “They (Upthrust Esports) said that the teams asked them just to host the tournament. It was the teams’ decision that they themselves would pay an entry fee, and they themselves distribute the prize pool among themselves,” he added.
He stated that despite Hydra Esports’ past success in official and LAN tournaments, it was not given a slot in the Upthrust Esports event, where even teams not affiliated with any organization are allowed to play. “Hydra Esports was a part of the last official tournament; it reached the finals. Hydra Esports was also in the top 6 in the last LAN tournament. Still, I don’t know what the scene is. I have seen a lot of teams playing. Even the teams that are not in any organization are also playing in T1. But they did not allow them (Hydra Esports) to play in the UE event, where the teams themselves are deciding,” he added.
Hrishav took a pragmatic approach to Hydra Esports’ exclusion from the T1 scrims, acknowledging that it is the participating teams’ decision and that arguing about it would be fruitless. “It doesn’t matter which scrim you play, practice is practice. Rest, our players are making a name for themselves everywhere. They are dominating a lot these days. It’s their decision, we can’t argue about this with those teams,” he added.
Hrishav explained that the team had been playing separately with their friends in separate teams due to this slot issue. However, he added that the team would be playing together in evening scrims.
