Skyesports has pleasantly surprised the Indian gaming community by throwing this curveball as two esports titles that despite having considerable userbases in India have never been too popular as competitive titles.
Even the LAN finals of the Skyesports Pokemon UNITE India Open 2022 which features a total prize pool of INR 22,50,000 ($27,165 USD) has been scheduled to take place as part of the AMD Skyesports Championship 4.0 in Mumbai.
