In a shocking turn of events, Velocity Gaming has let go of its BGMI lineup due to poor performance. The team, which was introduced just a few months ago, failed to sustain the competitive level of BGIS 2023 and hence was removed from the lower bracket, which led, Velocity Gamings management, to disband the entire roster. Although having one of the best BGMI players in the team, i.e. Punk, Team VLT was constantly facing losses back to back in tournaments. 

The news came out as a post from Team VLT’s social media handle, where they stated “It is with deep regret that we part ways with our BGMI team. We extend our best wishes for their future journeys.” In the Battlegrounds Indian Series, Velocity Gaming failed to perform on average, which led to disappointment among its fans. With disbanding their BGMI and Valorant roster, VLT now does not hold a lineup and only has signed a few PC content creators.

Velocity Gaming bids adeu to its stacked BGMI lineup

Velocity Gaming had a quite explosive roster with some big names. These are: 

  1. Punk
  2. IMMORTAL
  3. Aimbot
  4. Octavius
  5. Jazzy

Amongst these, only Punk and Immortal were well-known and the rest were underdogs. Being such a big organisation, signing an underdog team, came as a backlash. Kratos, stayed with the team for a long period, being a coach. Kratos, though held a lot of experience, but the strategies seemed to be off in BGIS 2023. Surprisingly, the teams also had a positive uptrend in this journey, they secured second place in the Revenant Invitational and also took home 12.5 Lakh by winning the BGMS S2.

Velocity Gaming had a rollercoaster ride in this journey, facing both, lows and highs. But when it mattered the most, the team choked. In the lower bracket, they were situated at the 5th position in their group. Only the top 4 qualified, hence they were eliminated. The roster kickstarted the tournament with a bang securing multiple chicken dinners, but unfortunately, it didn’t finish well.

This scenario showcases the volatility of the eSports scene. With one tournament loss, orgs try to move past their original roster and want to bag the next big thing to give their roster a solid boost. It is not the case with just BGMI but many other games such as Valorant eSports also suffer from the same thing. Now fans have to wait and see which BGMI pro will sign with Team VLT.
