Eight teams banned from Round 1 of BGIS 2024 main event

On 8th May, Krafton released an official statement on its Instagram account and said, “We are committed to maintaining a fair and competitive environment in the Battlegrounds Mobile India Series (BGIS) 2024. It is with regret that we must announce a significant decision affecting the integrity and fairness of the said competition. Carbon7, Atletico Marathas, Valhalla Esports, Edge Mavericks, TeamBRO6, Team No Scope, Peaky Blinders, and Detonation Gaming have been officially banned from participating in BGIS 2024 due to violations of the tournament’s Code of Conduct/Ruleset. An investigation confirmed that these teams engaged in activities that directly violated these rules. The specific infractions involved using unauthorized software modifications and collaborating with other players equipped with cheating devices. These actions undermine the sportsmanship, integrity, and fairness that BGIS stands for.”

“Carbon7, Atletico Marathas, Valhalla Esports, Edge Mavericks, TeamBRO6, Team No Scope, Peaky Blinders, and Detonation Gaming are disqualified from BGIS 2024, and all their results from the tournament will be nullified. We will also undertake a thorough review to determine if further sanctions are necessary, including potential bans from future events organized by KRAFTON.”

Krafton also revealed that the points gained by all eight teams in the Round 1 event will be distributed equally among the other participants of their respective groups. “Due to the disqualification of these teams, their accumulated points will now be redistributed equally among the remaining teams in their respective groups. This decision is made to maintain the competitive balance within the group and ensure no team is unduly disadvantaged by the exclusion of a competitor.”

It has also been revealed that the overall standings of Round 1 of the BGIS 2024 main event have been updated to give every team a fair chance. “The seedings for the upcoming matches will be revised to reflect these new point totals. This re-seeding aims to ensure that all teams have equitable conditions for competition based on the updated standings. We urge all teams to review their new standings and prepare for their matches accordingly. The integrity of the competition is paramount, and we believe these adjustments will help preserve the competitive nature of our tournament. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation. We appreciate your commitment to fair play and sportsmanship. Best of luck to all teams as we continue with BGIS 2024.”

It is yet to be revealed if these teams grabbed a spot in Round 2 of BGIS 2024. Krafton will soon be updating their standings and teams can check their qualifications on the official Krafton India Esports website.
