Mumbai, 28 September, 2018 (GPN) : Tencent Games India’s biggest eSports Tournament-PUBG MOBILE Campus Championship 2018 that has gone live since 26th September has come under the scanner of multiple loop holes, unclarity, ambiguousness and imprecisioness.The PUBG MOBILE Campus Championship 2018 in India that features 40000 Students selected from 30+ cities across the country in the mega tournament. With a prize pool of INR 50 Lakhs sponsored by OPPO India, the championship is being streamed across social media platforms to enable eSports enthusiasts across the country to view and follow the championship. The 40000 College Students are grouped in Squads of 4 resulting in 10000 Squads from campuses in India to participate and compete. Four knockout rounds including the semi-finals will shortlist the final 20 teams to compete for the ultimate trophy at the grand finals. Registrations had open via the official website www.pubgmobile.in from 7th September 2018 till 23rd September 2018. The game contest went live on 26th September and it is today the third day. Students who had felt cheated and reliable sources associated with the game had approached the Media for help as they felt cheated and left out when their query and complaints were not addressed by their respective Admins who were supposed to assist them in getting their complaints resolved. The biggest glitch in the Game was that the Student Participants who had successfully registered and checked in the Tournament were given respective Room Credentials and specific Squad Roll Numbers.i.e Roll No. 1 to 25 for the 25 Squads (A Squad Team comprise of 4 Players including Captain of the Team) who were enrolled to enter the tournament in their given specific day and time slot. When the participants opened their respective room credentials with their given User ID and Password so that they could enter their Names and Team In their Specific Room and Slot as per the alloted Room Number they were shocked and horrified to see that somebody else (An Unknown team) has already occupied their rooms.Moreover they were confused about how to enter the Game when someone else has taken their position.They were utterly bereft when they contacted their Admin via Discord and Chat box on how they can vacate their rooms blocked by opponent team to enter the tournament and found that their Admin had no clue to resolve their issue.
The Biggest Blunder was that no separate waiting room was provided for the participants so that all 25 Squad comprising of 100 students could have entered in the waiting room after opening their room credentials and taken position in their allotted Room No (Team no ‘ Team1 to Team25) and slot. To everyone’s surprise when the Squad team opened their room credentials they felt cheated to see that Unknown opponent team players had already occupied and captured their own room and position and nothing could be done as they were left with no option other than to take up position in any random room that was vacate to enter the Game.Moreover the Squad had only five minutes to resolve their issue as the Game went live in five minutes post check in and their Admin was unable to resolve their issue in the specific time frame. This resulted in a chaos as most of the Squads were confused and cold not enter whereas the teams that entered were not playing in their own slots. The complete scenario was against the RULES to be adhered mentioned by the organisers and even an incomplete Squad OR a single player was allowed to enter and play the Game which was strictly against the RULES.
A Squad quoted, “If such kind of stupid mistake occur in Mobile Game Championship Tournament it will refrain players and ardent gamers from using the Game. The Game in question here is ‘PUBG MOBILE CAMPUS CHAMPIONSHIP 2018’.”another raised their concern, “We feel frustrated, cheated and left out in lurch by the way the Tournament is handled by the admins and supporters who are unable to tackle the query raised by the participants.”It’s the second day of the tournament and thousands of College Stundents who had successfully registered and checked in the contest are hoping to get JUSTICE and their complaints resolved by the compliant network of Admins associated with the game kept to assist the students.
When our media contacted the Guide and Admin they did not respond. Aneesh Aravind, General Manager, Tencent Games India was unavailable.
Let’s keep our fingers crossed to see that the cheated Student Participants gets Justice. ENDS
