It couldn't get worse when Thug was revoked his invitation to PMIT

Thug was originally invited to PMIT grand final as a guest. He is one of the most influential figures in the PUBG Mobile scene in India. Thug is the face of 8bit – a team with long history in the Indian PUBG Mobile scene. One of his team – 8bit Rampage was among the 20 teams to attend the PMIT event.

A strange turn of event

Earlier this year, Thug event acted as a commentator for the PMIT event in Pune. He has contributed a large dedication to the PUBG Mobile scene in India. Yet the man had to face such severe punishment out of nowhere.

The owner of 8bit won't bow down to anyone

More specifically, Thug explained that his invitation was revoked due to his streaming of Call of Duty: Mobile gameplay on his channel in the last few weeks. This was indeed a surprising turn of event as many top PUBG Mobile players still played and streamed Call of Duty: Mobile casually. Though PUBG Mobile and Call of Duty: Mobile are the top 2 mobile game contenders right now in India, both games are owned by the same publisher Tencent. This seems a bit harsh on the 8bit owner Thug.
