GodLike Esports unveils largest gaming facility in India

India-based professional esports team GodLike Esports recently unveiled the GodLike Bootcamp, the organization’s brand new gaming facility in Mumbai. The 25,000 sq. feet property is the largest gaming facility in the country, and it will provide the franchise with all of its professional gaming needs and content creation.

GodLike’s facility will reportedly host over 40 teams from three gaming divisions: PUBG Mobile, Call of Duty Mobile and Free Fire.

GodLike co-founder Amar Chandgude shared the organization’s excitement following the reveal of its new gaming facility, adding that the Bootcamp is “one of our biggest achievements”.

“This moment feels surreal. I remember speaking about doing something so significant when we started and back then, it seemed like a farfetched dream,” Chandgude said.

“The GodLike Bootcamp is one of our biggest achievements yet and we’re so excited to show it to our followers because all of this is possible because of them.”

GodLike’s new gaming facility

In a YouTube video posted on June 2, GodLike wrote that the organization has been working on releasing its “gaming house” for the past year. The milestone only took GodLike four years since the franchise was founded in 2018.

“The GodLike Bootcamp project is an emotion, the accumulation of blood, sweat and tears for a year. The wait is finally over! Join us on this journey through the LARGEST, the FINEST, the most PRESTEGIOUS Gaming Facility in India till date!” GodLike wrote.

The gaming facility is a five-floor building that will house the organization’s rosters, content creators, and management team. The facility has ten bedrooms, a kitchen, a gym, and several parking spaces to accommodate its residents.

Aside from the above, Godlike’s gaming house also provides ten streaming rooms, two conference rooms, a server room, and enough spaces for both content creation and hosting events. To ensure leisure activities for its residents, the facility features GodLike Arena and GodLike Café.

Tournament runs, roster change

With the release of the GodLike Bootcamp, the organization had high hopes that its three gaming divisions would be able to strike gold in this year’s professional events. Kicking off this year, the organization’s PUBGM division is looking to make a comeback after only being limited to 13th in an S-Tier tournament, PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021: Grand Finals.

Last year, GodLike recorded quite a number of stellar performances, posting three consecutive wins in Skyesports Championship 3.0, Ranbhoomi Season 1, and LOCO War of Glory: Grand Finals.

The organization also had a similar stellar feat in 2020, winning first place in PUBG Mobile Club Open – Spring Split 2020: India, PUBG Mobile Pro League – South Asia Season 1: Scrims Season 2, and Gamers Without Borders 2020: Asia. However, GodLike ended that year with the seventh position in an A-Tier PUBGM tournament, PUBG Mobile Pro League – South Asia Season 1.

In its mission to be India’s leading pro esports team, GodLike has been through a few roster change this year. In early January 2022, GodLike received PUBGM and VALORANT analyst Ocean “Ocean” Sharma and PUBGM player Saumya “Saumraj” Raj. However, the two parted ways from the organization on January 23.

In February, GodLike signed two new players to its PUBGM division, namely Arshpreet “GiLL” Singh and Viren Mahipalsingh “VIRU” Gour. Arjun “SHADOW” Mandhalkar followed suit on June 19.
