For an introduction to the captains check out our previous articles here:
Mithil ‘Mithilf ‘ Sawant (Akramaks) – Mithil is one of the most recognized players of the Indian scene with lots of success in Indian LANs and has even represented us internationally. He, Kappa and Manan will team up in Akramaks again after a very successful stint in Invisible Wings in 2016. None of the players have enjoyed much success since then, but this could definitely turn their careers around. He is deadly with the rifle and years of experience will come to us in this long drawn format.
Krishna ‘krissh’ Salecha (Crusaders) – Krissh’s glory days have been fading away slowly and while his ESL ban has lifted, he just hasn’t been able to perform at a level he once did. He was once considered one of the best players in India and will have to dig deep to find that form. Rest assured though, that if it’s his day no one will be spared.
Akash ‘rix’ More (Marksmen) – One of the better AWPers of the country, Rix is reliable, consistent and deadly. Many times he has carried Brutality to victory and he will be teaming up with his friend Venom to try and challenge for the top spot. Can play both aggressively and passively with the AWP and comes with a lot of experience.
Anurag ‘mantr1’ Mantri (Yakshas) – He too was part of the 2ez squad that dominated in 2017, but later quit the team. However, he was one of the key factors behind their meteoric rise and is known to be hardworking as well as talented. The Yaksha’s will look to him for strats and shot calling and it remains to be seen whether he can deliver.
Hasnain ‘impale’ Sayed (Yakshas) – Impale is an explosive player who will be crucial to the Yaksha’s journey at U Cypher. One of the senior players in the scene, impale too has been around for a while. He can be extremely explosive with the rifles and is an absolute beast with the Deagle as well. But he will have to be consistently performing to lead the Yakshas to victory.
Yaksha’s have a beastly Counter-Strike lineup with Recoilmaster, Skadoosh, impale,mantr1,revo1t and starboy. Second to them are Akramaks with Mithil, Manan,smx, Kappa, Badman, and Kp. Can the other rise to the challenge and surprise everyone? Watch all the action only on U Cypher!!!
Episodes and gameplays will be available digitally on Usports.in, MTV, Voot, Youtube, Youtube Gaming and Twitch.
