TSM India has come forward to officially announce the departure of their former PUBG Mobile roster on 22nd July. The pending announcement has finally been made by the North American organization, as TSM India for the first time since it started its operation in the country is without an official PUBG Mobile lineup. As per the statement made by the organization, it seems both TSM India and the players "agreed to mutually part ways," with the lineup moving forward to pursue a new challenge. With this, one of the most popular and successful teams in India has been left without an organization, but the players will likely still be sticking together as indicated by Jonathan “JONATHAN” Jude Amaral on his Instagram story on 26th June.

TSM India Bids Farewell to Former PUBG Mobile Roster

The expected move has finally been made by TSM India as they officially part ways with their former PUBG Mobile roster, currently standing without any team to compete in the India-exclusive Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI).

Players leaving the TSM India organization are as follows,

  • Abhijeet "GHATAK" Harishchandra Andhare - Support, Coach

  • Suraj "Neyoo" Nityanand Majumdar - Entry Fragger, Assaulter

  • Jonathan "JONATHAN" Jude Amaral - Assaulter

  • Abhishek "ZGOD" Choudhary - Support

  • Vivek "ClutchGod" Aabhas Horo - IGL

All the five players had been a part of TSM India for more than 16 months, initially being signed on 6th March 2020. The lineup achieved a lot of success under this organization, quickly climbing up the competitive ladder and becoming one of the most popular teams within the country.

Some of their achievements under the TSM banner includes a runners-up finish at both PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL) - Spring Split 2020: South Asia RS and PMPL - Spring Split 2020: South Asia Finals. The team improved themselves as they went on to win the PUBG Mobile India Series 2020, and stood 6th in the PUBG Mobile World League 2020 - Season 0: East.

The initial speculations about the lineup about to part ways with TSM India started to go around when Sid Joshi, former manager of TSM.Entity stated that TSM’s former PUBG Mobile players and himself are no longer part of the organization.

This was followed by JONATHAN coming forward with an Instagram story where he tagged the rest of the former PUBG Mobile squad with the caption reading "Always together", which was reshared by the other players also.

All this was followed by a report from Gemwire which speculated that the now ex-TSM India PUBG Mobile roster would go on to join GodLike Esports, who themselves parted ways with their lineup on 29th June.

It will be interesting to see if this speculation actually comes true or not, now that the lineup has officially parted ways with TSM India.
