Indian BGMI players’ self-obsession and self-centeredness caused an international failure
Tanmay Singh popularly known by the name Scout recently shared his thoughts on why Indian BGMI teams struggle against international teams. The popular professional Battlegrounds Mobile India (BGMI) player opened up on BGMI teams stating that domestic success is not enough to be globally good. Indian teams need to improve themselves for international competition.
Scout stated that Indian players are very self-obsessed and self-centred. Once they finish in higher ranks in the domestic tournaments, they believe that they are dominating. However, Scout suggested that playing International scrims will help improve global competition. Scout believes that Indian BGMI players tend to call themselves Gods. Indian players must prepare themselves by competing against international players.

The perspective of Indian players
According to Scout, Indian teams often dominate in India itself. And he believes that winning Indian tournaments does not matter at all. If a team plays daily and works hard, then it’s obvious that it will have a better playstyle, and in India, anyone can do it. Scout says that dominating over fellow regional counterparts does not make Indian teams good on the international stage. Scout questioned the Indian team’s condition on the international stage.
Scout and his views on this
While on the livestream, Scout took the example of GodLike Esports, Team SouL and 7Sea Esports’ conditions in the international tournaments. GodLike finished 13th position at the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021: Grand Finals, Team SouL finished 11th in the PUBG Mobile World Invitational (PMWI) 2022 and 7Sea Esports finished 9th place in the same PMWI Afterparty Showdown. Scout took the matter to state how the Indian teams struggled on the international stage.
Winning in India will not make any difference, international scrims are what players need the most at this level. Competing against regional counterparts will not make anything better. Once the Indian teams stop comparing themselves to Gods, then only they will improve. On this Scout took the example of Nepalese teams on how they have shown their improvement with international exposure. DRS Gaming, the Nepali team finished second in the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2022 with a great performance. Once teams start to play against international teams, it will automatically improve their gameplay.
The fault of Indian fans
Scout also stated that Indian fans are also at fault. They just support the ones who accumulate better kills or finishes and taunt the players with fewer finishes. This thing needs to be stopped as players are assigned different roles and the ones with fewer finishes might be the actual reason behind the team support.
Indian players and teams should aim to create a mindset of how the international players do. Rather than focusing on MVP awards, international players focus on winning the title and playing for the team. However, with the ban on PUBG in India, international scrims seem to be a bit difficult but it is all that is needed to be good on the international stage and have good results.
