Thug reveals Goblin no more a part of S8UL

In a recent , Thug was asked why Goblin’s birthday wishing Instagram story was deleted, to which he said, “As I have already said before Goblin is no longer a part of S8UL so wishing on his birthday through the official S8UL social media handles does not feel right and those who wanted to wish did it though dm’s or other means. He has moved on to another organization and he will update you guys about everything soon.”

Goblin was one of core members of Team Soul’s Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) roster. He was the only one retained by IQOO Soul after they released their BGMI lineup. It was said that the new lineup was being structured around Goblin but it has now been revealed by Thug that Goblin also is no longer a part of the organization.

IQOO Soul acquired the ex Blind Esports roster which was the champion of the Battlegrounds Mobile India Pro Series (BMPS) 2023 and was one of the most consistent BGMI teams in 2023. 

It will be interesting to see where Goblin ends up as he is one of the highly skilled fraggers in the BGMI scene and was the Most Valuable Player (MVP) for IQOO Soul in most of the tournaments it played.
