The revelation by Vishwas “Juicy” Battoo, the In Game Leader (IGL) of Team 8Bit, regarding the major server issues faced during Day 4 of Week 1 in BGIS 2024 The Grind has shed light on the challenges experienced by participating teams. Here’s a summary of the situation:

  • Server Issues: Vishwas “Juicy” Battoo shared on his Instagram stories that Team 8Bit, along with several other teams, encountered significant server issues during Day 4 of BGIS 2024 The Grind. These issues resulted in their untimely elimination from the match due to the inability to move, leading to their demise in the blue zone on the Erangel map.

  • Appeal for Rematch: Juicy expressed frustration over the lack of response from tournament organizers to address the server issues. He argued that if multiple teams in the lobby are affected by server problems, the organizers should consider rehosting the match to ensure fairness. Despite requests from affected teams for a rematch, the organizers reportedly declined to rehost the match.

  • Importance of The Grind Event: The Grind serves as the qualifying event for the BGIS 2024 Main Event, offering teams a second chance to qualify through in-game qualifiers. With only six matches allotted to each team across four weeks of The Grind, every match holds significant weight, as only the top 64 out of 256 teams will proceed to the main event.

  • Upcoming Weeks: Week 1 witnessed 128 teams competing, and Week 2 is set to commence on 10th April with the remaining 128 teams. It remains to be seen whether Krafton, the organizer of BGIS 2024, will address the server issues faced by teams during Day 4 of the event.

The incident underscores the importance of maintaining fair and stable gameplay environments in competitive tournaments like BGIS 2024, and teams and fans alike await a response from the organizers regarding the reported server issues.
