Global eSports participating in its very first ESL India Premiership had quite an impressive run as they finished third in the first phase and went on to qualify for the LAN by placing fourth in the second phase. After qualifying for the Summer Season LAN Finale the team went up against Signify CS:GO in the semifinals but could not make it past them, finishing their journey at the 3rd-4th position.
Keeping their roster intact the team has picked up another young talent and seem to be practising hard for the next season of ESL India Premiership.
It is great to see that the organization has kept faith in their line-up and are continuing with almost the same roster. This is a rarety in the Indian scene as teams keep shuffling every few months, without really grinding it out as a unit. Instead of resolving the issues and bettering themselves, the teams simply keep trying out new permutations and combinations, which is never going to be a permanent solution. This seems to be a better take on a long drawn problem in the scene, giving teams a chance to actually rectify the problems and possibly have a successful run.
Let’s see how the team performs in the coming events. What do you guys think will they actually make an impact by winning a tournament or stagnate at the same level?
