In amongst all the excitement is a piece of news that could take some sheen away from the event. Fan favourites Team SouL, who are one of the sixteen invited teams, have decided to skip the highly-touted tournament.
Team SouL to give event a miss!
Team Soul, the defending champions of the PMIS, had already been directly invited for this year’s tournament. But MortaL said the team won’t be playing because they need time to work on their mistakes. He added that playing continuous tournaments for the past six months has “been building nothing but mental pressure.”
This news was shared by SouL’s talisman, Mortal (Naman Mathur), on his official Instagram page, where he wrote:
“Team SouL will not be playing PMIS 2020. We need time to work on our mistakes. Tournament after tournament in the last 6months has been building nothing much but mental pressure.
“We will be back in action right after PMIS ends.
“This is not a break. We will be playing customs throughout! And work on our basics and mistakes. We are not the best.. but will have to work for it wisely.”
In the recently-concluded PMPL South Asia season one, the team didn’t perform well and failed to secure a slot in the PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL) season zero. This was the first time the team didn’t qualify for an official international PUBG Mobile event.
This news will surely come as a shocker to the legion of Team SouL fans, as they were excited to see their team back in action. It has to be noted that recently, Mortal had revealed that there would be some structural changes to SouL, and there is reason to believe that they are using this enforced break to work towards that.
This is a silver lining of sorts for SouL fans, and they have reason not to be too sad, as SouL seem to be are working towards something bigger and better, and will be back in action soon.
