Global Esports is one of the oldest Indian esports organizations. Since its inception, the organization has had rosters in multiple titles, including Overwatch, Fortnite, PUBG Mobile, Counter Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO), Valorant, and more. Global Esports signed its first Valorant roster in 2020 when Valorant Esports had just begun in India. Since then, it has stuck with the same roster, and recently, it also earned a franchise slot in the Valorant International League.

While chatting with his audience, Sinha stated, “The future of Valorant Esports is very bright.” He added, “The Games Awards 2022, the entire esports section of the award was dominated by Riot Games.” Further elaborating, he said, “Let me frame me in a better way so you can understand. Riot Games, as of right now, is dominating the gaming world. It was present in the entire esports section of The Games Awards (2022).” Following this, he mentioned all the accolades Riot Games’ titles won at the award show. “All of them are Riot Games,” he added. 

On 5th December, Riot Games delivered a second update on their highly anticipated fighting game titled, Project L. Talking about this, Sinha said, “They have also announced and showcased the trailer of Project L, the most kick-ass looking fighting game I have ever seen. It reminded me of my childhood days of Marvel vs Capcom 2, Street Fighter, Mortal Kombat, Tekken. All of those games put together and mashed up but done right. Because it is Riot. That’s what they do. They get things right. And with esports at focus.”

Sinha commended Riot Games for Project L. “The whole concept of a fighting game being so competitive by its nature is an esports. Then, adding a publisher layer on top ensuring that it does well as a title and promoting it as an esports title. Riot really, really knows how to do it,” said Sinha.
