Fnatic is a London-based esports organization popular for creating legends in the esports scene. Despite the ban of PUBG Mobile in India, Fnatic is still the most popular esports PUBGM firm in the country. The recent reports of YouGov, international research and data analytics group, further clear the whole picture. Scroll down to know-how.
Fnatic India: Entering the Indian Esports Scene and Later Forming a Roster
Fnatic is the first organization to enter the Indian gaming scene when PUBG Mobile started growing. First signing XSpark in 2019, then gradually forming a roster with Scout, Owais, Ronak, and Franky. The competitive output was not as per the expectations, still, however, the organization successfully got into the roots of the Indian gaming community.
As per the reports of YouGov, around 21 percent of the people in India follow Fnatic esports. Concluding the research study of more than 300 interviews around the country,
“Given the lack of Indian-originated teams competing at a global level, the following fragments and Western teams are the favorites. One in five (21 percent) avid esports fans in India follow London-based Fnatic, whose popularity may aid by the team’s signing of XSpark – an Indian-based roster for PUBG Mobile – in 2019. The American esports organization Evil Geniuses is just as popular with Indian esports fans (20 percent), likely due to the success of the team’s former Indian-American Dota 2 player, Universe.”
Furthermore, coming to other top esports teams in India like TSM-Entity, SynerGE, Orange Rocks, and Megastar, there is no conclusion made on them. It would be interesting to see how much fan-following these firms have within the nation.
PUBG Mobile is still banned in India. The possibilities of PUBG Mobile making a comeback in the country are diminishing as time passes. The government, however, has recognized esports as an official sport, still, no clues on PUBG getting unban.
