Multiple rumors and speculations had surfaced online a few days back about Goblin leaving Team SouL.
The confusion had cropped up following a series of Instagram stories posted by Omega and Goldy.
To finally bring everything under control Goldy, MortaL, and SID during their respective livestreams spoke about the issue openly.

A few days back multiple rumors and speculations about Harsh "Goblin" Paudwal leaving Team SouL had taken the Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) community by storm.

Everyone was searching for an answer to a question that did not exist, but it only resulted in more chaos and misinformation. Before things really got out of hands, Siddhant "SID" Joshi, Naman "MortaL" Mathur, and Lokesh "Goldy" Jain came forward to address this issue on their respective livestreams.

They provided proper explanations as to what was going on and set things right, as the public had mistakenly interpreted a personal Instagram story uploaded by Sahil "Omega" Jakhar on 1st May as some kind of a hint about Goblin leaving Team SouL.

Is Goblin really leaving Team SouL BGMI team?

Ever since Omega posted a story through his official Instagram account on 1st May, rumors and speculations started running rampant across the BGMI community about Goblin leaving Team SouL.

The interpretation by the majority was simply that the "two-faced" person being talked about in this post by Omega was Goblin, because immediately after this story Goldy had shared the following post by Animesh "Thug" Agarwal on Instagram.

The timing of the two posts made many believe that it was targeted towards Goblin and that he was about to leave Team SouL. However, this was nothing but a coincidence as multiple members came forward to give clarification on the matter.

Goldy in his livestream said that "The stories got posted in such a way that everybody thinks that they are related to each other, but there is no relevance between the two."

He further explained that Omega was going through some problem in his personal life and all the speculations were just useless chatter.

This was followed by MortaL on his own livestream saying that "I feel sometimes that the audience themselves decide who should stay in the team and who shouldn't."

He followed up by confirming that no one was leaving Team SouL because everything is going good for them right now.

Finally, the team's manager SID came forward to say that he was not going anywhere and neither was Goblin.

"All my players are really happy. In my entire career, I have lost very few players to better offers or conditions. I don't think there is any better place for any content creator or professional player in India after SouL," explained SID, "All my players are super super super happy. They know the value of this place."

With this, all the rumors and speculations can now be laid to rest concerning Goblin because it does not seem that he is going anywhere and is very much a part of Team SouL for now.
