With ESL India announcing the 8 direct invites for the Summer Season of ESL India Premiership 2019, Signify seems to be holding an ace up their sleeves.
With an unconfirmed find that U Cypher might be planning a comeback into the Indian esport circuit via a pro CS team called U Geist, we also came across a few changes with Signify’s registered roster for the Summer Season.
Information sourced via the ESL India Premiership website and ESEA indicates that the new Signify CS:GO roster is as follows:
Debanjan 'DeathMakeR' Das
Lukas ‘yb’ Gröning
Sabyasachi ‘Antidote’ Bose
Marcel ‘impulsG’ De Mattias
Tejas ‘rite2ace’ Sawant
At the time of writing this, no official announcements have been made by Signify and no information about Marzil and crazyguy's presence in the team is available.
Antidote is a known face while being widely considered as the best AWPer in the country. He was recently removed from the Global eSports active roster while being placed as a substitute. So it will not be a surprise if he was indeed picked up by Signify to aid them in finding more success.
Marcel ‘impulsG’ De Mattias, on the other hand, is a new entry into Indian esports. The German player has played in teams like Monarchs and Playing Ducks. While playing in Monarchs he shared space with yb, which could be one of the reasons for him now potentially joining Signify.

Signify should have stuck to their previous roster for a bit more time. It seemed like they had potential but if there were some internal conflicts then perhaps this was the best possible solution.
Crazyguy was a breath of fresh air with his aggressive AWPing skills along with the sometimes questionable plays that the team executed.
Unfortunately, there isn't much to offer about the new roster until the whole line-up is registered and confirmed. Let’s see how it works out for the organization!
