This Is Why S8UL Players Are Not Allowed to Stream BGMI

During a recent livestream, Animesh “Thug” Agarwal, co-founder of S8UL, addressed questions about why the team’s players have refrained from streaming their BGMI (Battlegrounds Mobile India) scrims gameplay. Thug candidly stated that the current lineup is not yet prepared to showcase their gameplay on stream, as the organization’s primary focus is to ensure the players are in optimal form and ready to compete for esports trophies.

Thug on why S8UL Players aren’t allowed to stream BGMI Scrims

Thug explained, “The players’ main target is on winning trophies, so we want to keep them fully focused. That is why they are not allowed to stream scrims.” While other creators in the community have experienced a surge in viewership on their BGMI streams, S8UL members have been absent from streaming. Thug assured fans that once the players regain their rhythm and start performing exceptionally, they will resume streaming.

In a separate Q&A session on Thug’s channel, he revealed that there may be casual BGMI tournaments featured on the S8UL channel soon, potentially including Nusa – the all-new 1×1 classic map, or the upcoming 10v10 mode.

SouL has been a prominent force in Indian mobile esports, leading the competitive scene since the days of PUBG Mobile. The PMCO (PUBG Mobile Club Open) India champions that featured Mortal in its lineup had gone to Berlin to compete at the Global Finals. After a dip in their performance, the organization hired the current lineup featuring Akshat “Akshat” Goel, Sahil “Omega” Jakhar, Harsh “Goblin” Paudwal and Sohail “Hector” Shaikh that ended up winning BGMI’s first pro tournament, the Battlegrounds Mobile India Pro Series season 1.

However, rumors about a separate boot camp for these BGMI players were dispelled by Thug, stating that there are no plans for a new boot camp until the end of BGMI’s 3-month trial period. The organization will only invest in a new boot camp once the game receives permanent clearance from the government. Thug expressed confidence that official tournaments will eventually be hosted, and if they arrive before the 3-month mark, there won’t be any issues.

Previously, Thug and Goldy, both the S8UL co-founders had indicated the organization’s intention to create a separate boot camp. Thug had mentioned the possibility of securing a flat exclusively for the BGMI players, offering them a comfortable environment to practice and stream their gameplay.
