Known to have led teams in the past, captaincy comes naturally to Atul and having been bred in a time when LAN environments were boisterous and in your face, it will be interesting to see what Atul has in store for us at U Cypher.

2.Pranay ‘Wuzz’ Bhatia
Source: ESL IndiaOne of the few Counter-Strike players to have stuck around for a while, Wuzz only recently announced his retirement from the pro scene. Prior to that, he and his brother, Pexxer, were seen playing for Brutality and despite being new players there, ended up playing a pivotal role there. Both Wuzz and Pexxer played in team Destructive 5 for a long time, standing tall in an era dominated by teams like Ate and NSD. They made a successful transfer to Global Offensive as well and are known as the Brothers of Destruction. Whether he gets to play with his brother remains to be seen, but there is no doubt that he is a capable and well-rounded figure. Known to be a calm and level-headed guy, Wuzz will have to pull out all the stops if he is to effectively manage 14 players and lead them to victory. At 28 years of age he is a well-respected figure of the Indian CS community and although he has announced his retirement, success at U Cypher may force him to reconsider.
Teams played for: Destructive 5, Brutality
3.Ankit ‘Venom’PanthOne of the most prominent faces in the Indian Counter-Strike scene, Venom too, is a battle-tested veteran. After a long time, he will be seen sporting colors of a team other than his own, Team Brutality. One of the most followed teams in India, Brutality has grown their fan base with dedication over the years to become an unstoppable brand. While it hasn’t always been sunshine and roses in terms of performance, their love and dedication towards the fans has always been reciprocated and kept them going. It’s still unknown whether he will get to pick his longtime teammates Rix and Juventa in U Cypher, but one thing is for certain, he is a born leader and a natural captain.
