The Indian gaming community has been captivated by the recent upheaval in player transfers and squad changes. Speculations surrounding Rudra "Spower" B's potential departure from the renowned Blind Esports Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) lineup has sent shockwaves through the community. Team XSpark owner Tanmay "Scout" Singh recently weighed in on the matter during a live stream, igniting a flurry of conversations among passionate fans.

Scout Urges for a Governing Body and Transfer Window to Regulate Indian Esports

Blind Esports had left an indelible mark with their outstanding performances since the resurgence of BGMI, making the rumors of Spower's departure all the more astonishing for fans. Scout expressed his belief that the ultimate decision lies with Spower himself. He stated, "I personally feel it's his (Spower) call to make. He is still young." However, he didn't miss the opportunity to critique the current state of Indian esports, shedding light on the absence of a governing body tasked with determining right and wrong in such situations. Scout further highlighted the worrisome lack of regulations, pointing out that without proper oversight, it becomes challenging to prevent instances like the addition of Tushar "DreamS" Jain to his own team.

Scout emphasized the urgent necessity of implementing a transfer window—a designated period during which players can switch teams. "Take five veterans from esports, take five owners, and form a governing body of ten people," Scout proposed. He firmly believed that this governing body would play a pivotal role in formulating rules and regulations to govern the Indian esports ecosystem.

In Scout's vision, any rules regarding the Indian esports ecosystem should be enacted if a majority of the governing body members reach a consensus. "A rule should be passed if six out of ten people agree. Then that rule should be implemented," Scout declared. This inclusive approach would ensure collective decision-making that reflects the interests of the entire community. He stressed the paramount importance of garnering widespread acceptance and support from the community to ensure the efficacy of such a governing body.

Furthermore, Scout suggested that teams should adhere to a roster for at least three tournaments or a specific time period before making any changes. He also proposed that players be allowed to participate in tryouts but would not be permitted to officially join tournaments until after a set number of tournaments or during a transfer window.

Scout firmly believed that establishing a governing body and defining a transfer window are pivotal steps toward regulating esports in India. Without these measures in place, teams would make changes according to their own whims, potentially leading to unfair advantages or conflicts within the esports community. He emphasized, however, that these were merely his suggestions, presented with the intent of fostering a healthier and more organized esports landscape in India.
