After two days of action-packed BGMI (Battlegrounds Mobile India) matches that showcased close competition between multiple teams for the top spot, the event concluded with TSM lifting the trophy on the final day as it won two matches through its hyper-aggressive playstyle.

With an overall score of 199 points which consisted of 107 points for finishes, TSM was leagues ahead of other teams when it came to fragging output. This resulted in them becoming the champions of the first-ever BGMI LAN tournament, NODWIN Loco All Stars Invitational, walking away with INR 25,00,000 ($32,703 USD) in prize money.

Their star player Shubham "NinjaJOD" Ranjan Sahoo was named as the MVP (Most Valuable Player) of the tournament for his outstanding performance, winning an extra INR 1,00,000 ($1,309) for the excellent fragging put forth by him in the competition.

TSM become the champions of NODWIN Loco All Stars Invitational

The first Indian esports tournament after more than two years to take place on LAN saw TSM lifting the trophy on the back of its frag oriented gameplay.

Not once did TSM shy away from taking on a fight during the course of this tournament. No they did not survive all the skirmishes, but they made sure that the ones they won turned into a better placement for them, as they racked in more points via finishes rather than playing for placement.

Out of the 199 points that TSM scored, 92 were earned through placement while the remaining 107 were a direct result of all the frags that the team had accumulated.

Both Revenant Esports and Team XO had more placement points than TSM, 101 points each, but when it came to finishes TSM was 29 frags ahead of the second closest team Hyderbad Hydras who had managed to secure a total of 78 finishes.

This shows what kind of mindset and preparation TSM went with into this tournament, winning its second event of the year following its victory at OR Championship - Legends Rise 2022 in February 2022.

NinjaJOD leads the finish table - 3 TSM players in top 5

Their talented assaulter, NinjaJOD, showed excellent form as he collected bodies in heaps and was a big reason behind TSM performing so well. He got the team out of difficult situations multiple times and was ruthless on the server, and as a result he was named as the MVP of the tournament, proving that he had what it takes to perform in an offline setting as well.
