Krafton Disqualifies 54 More Teams From BGIS 2023

The Battlegrounds Mobile India Series (BGIS) 2023 Round 2 qualifiers have concluded with underdog teams as well as known teams dominating the matches. 512 teams had advanced to Round 2 and before its commencement Krafton released a list of teams that were disqualified from the event.

Round 3 of BGIS is about to start and Krafton has now issued another list of disqualified teams from Round 2.

Reasons for teams’ disqualification from BGIS 2023

Over 2000 teams participated in the online qualifiers and 256 of them competed in Round 2 of BGIS 2023. Many teams faced elimination from the event due to hackers and cheaters in their qualifying matches. 

Following several community concerns, Krafton India Esports took strict action against multiple teams competing in BGIS 2023 ahead of Round 2. Krafton has now again released another list of teams that have been disqualified from BGIS 2023 Round 3. The sections 4.1 and 6.2.4 of the BGIS 2023 rulebook are cited as the reasons for teams’ disqualification.

Section 4.1 Player Equipment: Players may participate in tournaments or official competitions only on mobile phones or approved handheld devices. Players may not use peripheral devices of any kind without explicit written approval of tournament officials (including tablets, adapters, controllers, Bluetooth keyboards, and mice). Players may not use an emulator to play on a PC or other device that is not a handheld device.

Section 6.2.4 Ringing: Playing under another player’s account or gamertag, or soliciting or inducing someone else to play under another player’s account or gamerTag is prohibited.
