Ganesh “Skrossi” Gangadhar has become a household name in the Indian Gaming Industry.

Currently, Skrossi is playing for the Revenant Esports Valorant team.

Skrossi’s Journey and transition to Valorant

Skrossi began his esports career by playing Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO). He played and won multiple cafe tournaments with his team and made a name for himself in the Indian CS:GO scene. He also went onto play in several events against the top Indian and SouthEast Asian (SEA) teams and won several events with his team, Beast Esports, along with other well known names like Agneya "Marzil" Koushik.

He transitioned to Valorant in 2020 and started live streaming the game on his Youtube Channel. He became the second Indian Valorant player to reach the Radiant rank in the game. He was then signed by Global Esports (a team partnered with Riot Games for Valorant) on 4th October 2020. After a first couple of months the Global Esports Valorant squad won its first event by beating Velocity Gaming, one of the most dominating teams in Valorant in India.

Skrossi’s consistent performance across events against some of the best teams in India contributed to his rise to fame. His most noteworthy moment arose in the Finals of the Valorant Conqueror Championship 2021 Finals event against Velocity Gaming. The teams were tied 2-2 in the Best of 5 (Bo5) Finals. Velocity Gaming dominated the first half of Map 5 (Ascent) and was leading by a considerable margin of 6 rounds with a scoreline of 9-3. The Global Esports squad mounted a steady comeback in the second half. Skrossi secured a brilliant Ace with the Operator in the 5th round of the second half which helped the team build momentum and win the championship.
