Having commented on what he feels like is going to be the path taken by Krafton when it comes to BGMI's competitive circuit in the country. Scout further explains why he felt that this was the approach that the developers would opt for.
As the game (BGMI) came late, they would have to once again create the hype by inviting all the streamers. Once they bring the craze similar to before, then they will start with the qualifiers. In a way, the first few tournament would be like community events, it will not be skill based.Tanmay "Scout" Singh
