Battlegrounds Mobile India Launch Party – Where to Watch
Krafton says you’ll be able to watch the Launch Party on its official Facebook page and YouTube channel. Odd that Loco isn’t involved considering the company just led the made-in-India video streaming app’s $9 million fund raise.
It’s possible that the Battlegrounds Mobile India Launch Party announcement was preponed following Ultimate Battle’s reveal this week.
Previously IGN India reported that discussions with esports teams have been ongoing since June according to those familiar with the matter and its quite likely that Krafton investee Nodwin may not be running these at all. Furthermore, the first official Battlegrounds Mobile India event may simply be restricted to streamers alone and this is indeed the case.
Hopefully the Launch Party doesn’t take Krafton’s attention away from the pressing concerns of its fans. Rampant hacking and the lack of an iOS version have been brought up often enough to warrant attention.
We won’t be surprised to see these issues fixed considering how stringent Krafton is in other territories. In fact, it’s in Krafton’s best interests to have Battlegrounds Mobile India free from cheaters and hackers if it wants its esports ambitions to come to life.
