Highlights

  • Yash, in his post, said that the tournament organisers have a low prize pool and low watching is killing the ecosystem.

  • Shiva Nandy, the owner of Skyesports also commented on the post and tried explaining to Bhanushali that everyone cannot just focus on the prize pool.

  • While all the TOs and organisations have agreed that a lot of changes can take place, they also believe that one person cannot be blamed for the whole situation.

A huge conversation was initiated on X (formerly Twitter) by Orangutan's owner, Yash Bhanushali regarding the BGMI tournament organisers and the concurrent watching that they have right now. Yash, in his post, said that the tournament organisers have a low prize pool and low watching is killing the ecosystem. 

 

This is not the first time that organisation owners have started this conversation about the prize pools of events or the number of events that are taking place back to back. Shiva Nandy, the owner of Skyesports chimed in on the conversation and gave his side of the story as a tournament organiser.

Orangutan's Owner Discuss Future OF BGMI Tournaments On X

 

 

Yash Bhanushali, the owner of Orangutan Esports has been extremely vocal about the current situation of Esports. Be it a low prize pool for tournaments, back-to-back matches or even current viewership that third-party owners pull right now. In his latest post, Bhanushali called out tournament owners for faking their support towards esports. He said: 

 

10k live watching in BGMI just shows how irrelevant TPT are for the audiences. Trash prize pools, irrelevant tournaments by premiere TO’s are just killing the scene. All in the name of supporting esports. What a f***ing JOKE.

 

Shiva Nandy, the owner of Skyesports also commented on the post and tried explaining to Bhanushali that everyone cannot just focus on the prize pool. If they have to, then Skyesports has a huge prize pool for Counter Strike 2. He said: 

 

Don't Participate in any TPT if you have that guts. For the Same prize pool, two weeks back the same premier TO achieved 110,000+ CCV. I think your knowledge in esports is as baseless . Esports is meant for all. Not only BGMI. If the prize pool is everything, we have $350,000 for Counter Strike. Wake up.

 

To Shiva's comment, Yash replied that the comment was not targeted towards a single person, but that he also has to agree that 10 lakh is a small prize pool. A lot of other team owners chimed in on the conversation and gave their thoughts on the matter. Lokesh Jain, Co-owner of S8UL said: 

 

@shivanandysky bro no offence , why you taking this personally . He’s talking about the current state of viewership in tpt these days and the state which audience is loosing interest . Goes for the best of interest of all of us ! We all together in the same boat! 

 

Anna let’s work together and solve the problems . We are all part of each other.

 

 

While all the TOs and organisations have agreed that a lot of changes can take place, they also believe that one person cannot be blamed for the whole situation and that changes have to be brought in the mindset of the audience, organisers, organisations and sponsors.
