Soul Amit reveals why Hector was benched

Team Soul is playing the ongoing BGMS Season 2 and BGIS 2023 The Grind and is dominating both the tournaments. It became the second team after Blind Esports to accumulate 100 points in BGIS 2023 The Grind Round 2. 

In a recent livestream, Soul Amit revealed the reasons behind benching Hector in the initial stages of both BGMS Season 2 and BGIS 2023 The Grind. He also revealed how he decides the playing four for the matches. 

Soul Amit said, “We played Akshat, Neyo, Goblin and Omega during BGIS 2023 The Grind qualifiers because there are a limited number of points required to qualify for the further stages. When we play with Hector we have to play for the chicken dinner and try to grab the maximum number of points. When playing for the chicken dinner, taking a 4v4 fight becomes a disadvantage. At the same time when we add Akshat or Neyo to the lineup there are more chances of winning the 4v4 fights, but we may miss out on the chicken dinner”. 

He also said, “When we play Hector in the playing four our gun power becomes comparatively weaker and it is difficult to initiate 4v4 fights. If we want to secure 4 to 8 finish points it becomes important to play Akshat, and if we want to secure the chicken dinner with maximum points we have to play Hector in that scenario. No lineup is perfect, both the lineups have their own advantages and flaws. I knew the lineup which we played in the qualifiers would not work in the finals as we have to play a more chicken dinner oriented gameplay, so i had to try that lineup in the initial stages of the tournament”.

Soul Amit also said a few words about Hector, “Hector’s gun power by any means is not weak, but he is the kind of player who likes to play a position oriented game”.

Team Soul is dominating both the tournaments simultaneously. Hector was the Most Valuable Player (MVP) for Team Soul in the recently concluded Round 2 of BGIS 2023 The Grind where he secured 19 finishes to his name. 

Fans will want their favorite team to continue its dominance in the further stages of BGMS Season 2 and BGIS 2023 The Grind to eventually go on to be crowned the champion.
