Revenant Esports emerges victorious in EGI Revamp Battle
EGI Revamp Battle was held from 1st to 5th Aug 2021 and featured 24 teams. The event featured a four-day League Stage that was followed by the Grand Finals day. Twenty-four teams were divided into four groups during the League Stage and faced each other in a round-robin format out of which the top 16 teams qualified for the Grand Finals.
The top three teams of the grand finals were Revenant Esports, Team XO, and Team TapaTap respectively. The event featured most of the recently announced and formed BGMI teams from different organizations. In a surprising twist, fan-favorites, Team SouL bombed out of the event at 24th place and did not even make it to the Grand Finals. Other popular teams such as TeamIND and 7Sea Esports also did not make it to the Grand Finals day. Other brand names such as Orange Rock and 8Bit had a good showing with 8Bit even topping the League Stage of the event.
The prize pool distributed between the top three teams are as follows,
INR 45,000 (USD 600)
INR 20,000 (USD 269)
INR 15,000 (USD 200)
BGMI was released on July 2021 after a long wait following PUBG Mobile’s ban in India. PUBG Mobile overtook every other esport in the country in player base, popularity, and tournaments, crossing BGMI is set to propel on a similar growth with the upcoming Battlegrounds India Series (BGIS) that will feature a INR 1 Crore (USD 134,000) prize pool.
