History of Mortal esports by Team SouL
The rise of 2019-Team SouL:
Mortal and Team SouL were the first real superstars in the PUBG Mobile esports scene in India, winning PMIS2019 and PMCO2019-Spring Split: India. The team then finished 12th in the PMCO 2019-Spring Split Global Finals, with a memorable chicken dinner in front of spectators around the world.
They closed the year with a second-place finish at PMCO 2019-Autumn Split: Top 12 finishes in South Asia and several other global tournaments.
For Team SouL, it was a very confusing year for the team to retreat due to multiple roster shuffles and frequent IGL changes. The team was unable to recreate the success they saw in 2019. Mortal was forced to take on the role of IGL, which showed signs that Team SouL would return to its previous form.
But the PUBG Mobile ban threw a wrench on these plans.
With Mortal taking a step back, it will be interesting to see who Team SouL will pick up after the game returns. The full details of the new Team SouL roster have not yet been revealed.
