• None Promotes team over individual: The teams on the leaderboards are assigned points as a whole and each player’s performances are deemed to be equal. It does not matter how many finishes each player has secured as long as the team has achieved the ultimate goal of performing as a unit and winning the title. For example, the In Game Leader (IGL) of a team may not have as many finishes as the assaulter because the IGL’s role is to make quick decisions and scout for safe positions in the zone.
• None Stability in Rosters: Some organizations in India go through roster changes after almost every events. The team rankings will help an organization to understand their team’s overall performance and invest in them to grow as a unit over the long term.
• None Brand Deals and Sponsorship: Consistently performing and climbing up the leaderboards will help a team get recognition and attract brand deals and sponsorships. Each player along with the organization will enjoy financial stability and will be encouraged to keep improving.
• None Helps in Brand Building: Teams at the top of the team rankings will get attention from the fans and they can expand their fan base. If a team has a huge fan base it also attracts sponsors and even if the organization goes through roster changes, there will still be fans loyal to that particular organization. Team Soul is one of the prime examples of this as its roster has gone through major changes since its initiation but its fan base has been growing continuously.
• None Players may not get tournament invitations after being released: A team placed in the top 24 of the team rankings is most likely to be invited to major events. As the teams are assigned points on the leaderboard rankings and not the players, even if a particular team’s roster changes its ranking will not be affected and the organization will still receive invitations for events whereas the players who were released from the team may not get direct invites in future events. The BGMI Pro Series (BMPS) 2023 is a good example of this, where the top 96 teams from BGMI India Series (BGIS) 2023 were invited and the organization had the invitation even after making changes to its roster.
• None Less Individual Growth: When a team climbs up the leaderboard, the focus will be on the team and individual performances may not be highlighted. The players in an organization will be judged on the same level and the star performers will be undervalued which will indirectly lead to them getting less opportunities for individual growth.
• None Equal parameters for all players: Allocating points to teams rather than players can hide team weaknesses and may not guarantee long-term stability. Some players on a team may underperform and go under the radar due to the overall performance of the team. The team rankings allocate points to a team without taking into account the individual performances of a player and all the players are judged on the same level which can be a disadvantage.
• None Recognition: The players are not considered while allocating points to a team which means players who performed admirably may not get the recognition they deserve. They may be kept in the same category as other players despite their extraordinary skill which may lead to their capabilities going unrecognized. For example, a player securing multiple finish points gets all the accolades and recognition but some players who thrive in difficult scenarios and gather placement points may go unnoticed.
