Godlike Esports: A Rollercoaster Ride

Godlike Esports, a prominent name in the Indian esports scene, has recently found itself embroiled in controversy. Here’s the scoop:

The Disqualification Drama:
During Day 5 of the Skyesports Champions Series 2024 BGMI Semi Finals, Godlike Esports made headlines for all the wrong reasons. The team played an unregistered player, leading to disqualification from the event by Skyesports.

Zgod’s Exit:
Abhishek “Zgod” Choudhary, the player whose account was used, has decided to step away from esports due to the backlash received from the audience. In a candid revelation by Neyoo during a live stream, Zgod expressed his desire to leave the competitive scene.

Behind-the-Scenes Insight:
Neyoo shed light on the complexities of competitive gaming. He emphasized how audience perceptions often fail to grasp the intricacies of in-game decisions. Rushing into situations without a second thought, as Neyoo recalled from his own experience, can lead to undeserved criticism.

Skyesports’ Verdict:
Following an investigation, Skyesports unveiled the truth behind the debacle. Arshpreet “GiLL” Singh was fielded instead of Zgod, constituting ringing, which led to Godlike Esports’ disqualification from the tournament.

Godlike’s Response:
In response to the disqualification, Godlike Esports issued a statement, revealing that the decision to substitute players was made by the team manager and analyst. Both were promptly removed from their positions.

The Fallout:
The incident serves as a reminder of the pressures and complexities within the esports ecosystem. It’s a lesson for both players and management alike on the importance of transparency and integrity in competitive gaming.

Looking Ahead:
As the dust settles, Godlike Esports faces a period of introspection and rebuilding. The community waits with bated breath to see how they bounce back from this setback and regain trust in the competitive arena.
