93: Game Time: How PUBG ban hits India's emerging esports community
Last week, as India-China tensions flared up along the LAC in eastern Ladakh, the Indian government banned 118 apps with Chinese links, citing concerns over threats to India’s safety and sovereignty. This included India’s most popular video game PUBG Mobile, whose publisher Tencent is a Chinese conglomerate. In this episode, hosts Mihir Vasavda and Gaurav Bhatt, along with producer Shashank Bhargava, talk about this decision’s impact on India’s esports community, what it takes to make it big in the field, the difference between esports and traditional ones, the announcement of the new Indian game FAU-G, and more.
