Binks Defends Global Esports Against Hate
A bit of logic goes a long way.
Global Esports (GE) has lately been receiving a lot of hate, especially from its Indian audience because they have been competing with a completely international Valorant lineup in the ongoing VCT 2023: Pacific League.
Since the start of this event, the organization was forced to play with all international players because its Indian duo of Ganesh "SkRossi" Gangadhar and Abhirup "Lightningfast" Choudhury faced issues with procuring their visas. This did not go down well with their regional supporters, especially those from India.
To reason with them, Mithul "Binks" Nayak, a popular Valorant streamer responded to the haters during a recent livestream.
Popular Indian Valorant streamer Binks responds to all the haters of Global Esports
During a recent livestrem session, Binks took some time out and tried to reason with those spreading hate against Global Esports. He put forth a hypothetical situation saying if GE creates a complete Indian roster and then goes on to lose on the international stage, would the haters come forward to pay the price and take on all the hate that the team receives?
Binks further explained that despite there being no Indian players in the playing five, it was an Indian team that those international players are representing on the global stage, which is always good for a growing region.
Providing another example of such an instance, Binks pointed out that MLT Esports was an esports organization from Bangladesh playing in the VCL 2023: South Asia Split 1 with an Indian roster.
"To compete at an international stage the team requires players of that level, it is that simple. You have to think about a hundred things when it comes to world level," says Binks, "When foreign players don't have a problem representing an Indian organizaiton then why are we having a problem? This is my quesiton."
Global Esports has so far played threee matches in this league, the main five being represented by the international players. Unfortunately, they have not been able to score a victory till now, going into the fourth week to face Talon Esports.
It will be interesting to see what lineup do they open with considering that both the Indian players have now joined their ranks in South Korea.
