Top Five Strongest BGMI Teams to Watch Out in BMPS Season 1
These are the tried and tested veterans, the strongest BGMI teams at the event.
The first official BGMI (Battlegrounds Mobile India) tournament of 2022, which is being organized by Krafton is currently underway, Battlegrounds Mobile India Pro Series (BMPS) Season 1.
It is featuring 24 teams from across India that have fought hard to secure a slot for themselves through the Battlegrounds Mobile India Open Challenge (BMOC) 2022 Round 4, which acted as the qualifier tournament.
A total of 64 teams locked horns in the BMOC 2022 Round 4, consisting of 32 directly invited teams and 32 teams that had fought through the open qualifiers. However, only the top 24 made it through to the main event.
Here are the top five strongest teams at the BMPS Season 1 that everyone needs to watch out for, considering their proven track record, individual gameplay, and most importantly experience.
BMPS Season 1: Top five BGMI teams to watch out for at the tournament
The first official BGMI event of the year is stacked with known teams that have proven their worth across multiple third-party tournaments. Though they have been joined by underdog newcomers it does not change the fact that they are some of the strongest BGMI teams competing in BMPS Season 1.
This team has been around for quite some time, but has recently come into the spotlight due to the fragging potential that they have showcased in the last few tournaments, especially at the first BGMI LAN event - NODWIN Loco All Stars Invitational.
Hyderabad Hydras has slowly built itself up over the course of this year, looking very intimidating as they walk into the BMPS Season 1, being touted as fearless competitors who do not back out from a duel.
A thing to note about this team is that given the opportunity, in most cases they do not look for securing a WWCD (Winner Winner Chicken Dinner) but rather go for more finishes, that is just how this team functions.
Inconsistency has been their biggest foe, Global Esports, has quickly risen from being a mediocre team last year to being counted amongst the best in 2022. They have the silverware to show how far they have come as a team, but the obscure performances often cloud their successes.
However, they looked in sublime form at BMOC 2022 Round 4 through which they managed to qualify for BMPS Season 1 with absolute ease. Hopefully, they will be able to build upon this momentum and continue in similar fashion rather than their form getting eclipsed yet again.
It is a rare sight to see OR Esports fall out of the top ten at any BGMI tournament. Top this up with three podium finishes so far this year, and you have got a fantastic team on your hands that is a constant threat at almost every tournament they are competing in.
They might slack in third party tournaments but are in top form when official events kick in, standing seventh at BGIS 2021, third at BMOC 2022: The Grind, and a top four qualifying spot at BMOC 2022 Round 4.
The best part about this team is that they are really adaptive when it comes to their gameplay, neither too focussed on attaining finishes nor too safe to go for only placement points. A great example is their performance at BMOC 2022 Round 4 where they had a near 50-50 split between placement (48) and finishes (49) in their ridiculous 97-point run.
One of the most disciplined BGMI lineups, Team XO adapts its gameplay on the fly, ready to play for position and switch gears to go hunt for some finishes. With 60% of the roster competing together for quite a long time, they have a sense of stability and calmness to them that is hard to find in most teams.
They have already won multiple third-party events this year, Skyesports Grand Slam 2022 and Upthrust Esports India Rising 2022, while consistently taking a podium finish every other tournament, staying relevant and keeping the momentum by their side.
Having comfortably qualified for the BMPS Season 1, Team XO are definitely one of the contenders to look out for, especially if they find their rhythm early on.
Hands down one of the most popular BGMI teams in the competitive circuit at this point in time, Team SouL, has undergone a massive overhaul following a disastrous 2021 competitive season where they failed to qualify for the biggest event of the year, BGIS 2021.
With a new roster at their disposal, Team SouL has quickly climbed the ladder to become one of the top prospects, winning two tournaments while placing second in three.
Additionally, their relentless aggression has given them the title of being one of the most ruthless teams on the server. It has continued to work in their favor, bringing in the required results and turning things around completely for the organization.
They are hands down one of the favorites to win this tournament, a good early start would be a bonus but you can never count them out as they love to make late comebacks and steal the show.
These are the five strongest teams to look out for in the BMPS Season 1 which is currently underway. They are tried and tested veterans who have been in the scene for a considerable amount of time and have a lot of experience to back their skills. It will be a true test for the others teams to go up against them during the course of this event.
