Before starting with the list of top 20 best PUBG players in India here is a small introduction of PUBG mobile and its journey from a PC based game to every other Indian’s mobile.
PUBG stands for Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds. The PC version of PUBG was launched in March 2017. After a whopping success in the PC version, the mastermind behind this game, Mr. Brendon Greene in partnership with the world’s biggest mobile gaming company TENCENT decided to launch its mobile version. After launching PUBG mobile it took India by storm and makers by surprise.
People got addicted to this game and suddenly India became the biggest market for PUBG mobile. On the other hand, It became India’s greatest unifier breaking all the so-called barriers of religion.
The managing team of PUBG mobile didn’t miss the opportunity and planned some competitive tournaments for the world’s biggest PUBG mobile market. The first tournament that was organized especially for Indians was DREAMHACK, Mumbai. From this tournament, the forming of a new type of e-sports gaming eco-system started. An eco-system that contains professional players, e-sports organizations, PUBG mobile influencers, casters, gaming creators, coaches, and streamers. The assembly was called Indian Gaming Community (IGC).
The most important and most worshipped part of this community are competitive players and after going a little deep, we’ll realize that a perfect squad contains an in-game leader (IGL), the mastermind who takes every important decision like how to enter in the zone, how to rotate, when to go aggressive and when to go passive, the IGL is the backbone of squad. An entry fragger the one who tries for first blood of enemy and makes an opening for his/her squad to push in another team, 2nd assaulter who supports entry fragger in taking trades, a support player who can do anything according to the need of the squad and one player in every squad takes that extra burden of the filter IGL. A filter IGL is the team’s other decision-maker other than IGL who verifies IGL’s call if he/she is not confident about a decision.
