While in most places in the world, PC gamers overwhelmed mobile gamers about how hardcore they are, it is a different story in India. There are a lot of PC gamers in India, but it is nowhere near the number of mobile players who are super enthusiast about games such as Free Fire and PUBG Mobile.

There is only 1 Free Fire tournament among the top 10, the rest of them are PUBG Mobile tournaments

The PUBG Mobile World League 2020 East was the last big event before PUBG Mobile got banned in India at the start of September. PUBG Mobile was thriving so hard and was becoming a promising venture for many international esports organizations. No one could have seen the ban coming and it has completely ruined everything.

The report also revealed that Arean of Valor, Mobile Legends, and Free Fire were about at the level of popularity in India, before the PUBG Mobile ban, of course. Sometimes, there are also PC games such as CS:GO and DOTA 2 appear on the chart as well.
