Overall Standings in Skyesports BGMI Grand Slam 2022
Skyesports BGMI Grand Slam 2022
Team XO conquered the battle, the kings who ruled for 7 day long tournaments of Skyesports BGMI grand slam 2022. The victory was a pure result of the unreal and phenomenal consistency shown by Team XO. The overall points collected by the team is 444 points, XO managed to take 5 chicken dinners in their name.
The combined efforts of Sensei, Snax, Punk and Fierce brought them the crown. Sensei had great potential as an IGL and he showed it. Currently, he is considered one of the best and most mature IGL ( in-game leaders) of India. Sensei played a vital role in team XO’s victory, his excellent decision making and in-game rotation with smart play.
Snax is well known for his DP sprays and burst, mainly used in long-range fights. Punk and Fierce great assaulters and close range beast of IGC. The combined efforts with the skills of individual players resulted in victory for Team XO. The kind of performance XO have displayed in BGIS and Skyesports has made them very popular. Surely they have gathered a good amount of fans for the organization.
Another team that impressed me the most was Team Soul. Everybody knows how big a fan base of Soul is. The crowd almost went crazy with the performance of Team Soul, who managed to get 2nd Position by securing second place with 416 points. Team players Akshat, Omega, Goblin and Soul player 3 the undisclosed member of team soul performed tremendously.
Skylights Gaming the winners of BGIS 2021, the team is known for their consistency put on an incredible show by making comeback in the last matches of the tournament and grabbing 3rd position in the points table.
Even one of the underdog teams Celsius Esports took the 4th spot. At the starting days of the tournament, Celsius was one of the contenders of winning but they failed to build that consistency, the kind of XO showed. But they have been really good with the gameplay and the aggressiveness. They have impressed the fans for sure.
TSM’s new roster is also known for its consistency with aggressive gameplay when required. They weren’t able to put on a great show in the starting phase of the tournament but managed to take the good placement and kill points in the remaining half of the tournament. TSM managed to secure the most kill points in the game over any team.
MVP of the Tournament – Jonathan
Every BGMI fan knows the calibre of Jonathan in taking frags, there’s no surprise he was entitled as the MVP of the tournament with 69 kills in his pocket but the irony is TSM Aquanox scored 67 kills and put a commendable show on the screen. We can say the throne for MVP was equally shared by Aquanax and Jonathan.
Darshako Ke Support Ki Wajah Se He Humlog Yaha Par Hain. You guys are everything for me & my team. Love you all.Godlike Jonathan
Jonathan has been known for his consistency in taking frags and almost being in the topmost position in taking frags in 90% of tournaments. It is really hard to match the level of Jonathan.
Aquanox is also an upcoming star well known for his Four fingers claw.
