Global Esports CEO Talks About All-Indian Valorant Roster for the International League
In recent announcements, Global Esports revealed its roster for the upcoming Valorant International League, including five Indian and five international players. Following this, in a recent livestream, a viewer asked Global Esports CEO Rushindra Sinha about having an all-Indian team for the Valorant International League. He replied that it is his dream and explained why it is impossible in the first season. But he also went on to say how it can be achieved by leveling up the Indian Esports ecosystem.
Rushindra Sinha says it will take a few years to build an all-Indian Valorant team for the League
Sinha said that it is his dream to build an all-Indian Valorant team, including the coach, for the Valorant International League. However, it will take a few years as the organization will have to improve the skill set in the region to be able to compete and give a tough fight on the global stage.
Sinha said, “That is my dream. That dream cannot be made into reality in one season. This is the first season of the League. Trust me; I want nothing more than an all-Indian roster with an Indian coach. I am with you. That day will come.” Following this, he added, “It will take a few years. Give it some time, and we will get there. We have to work our way there. We have to level up our entire region, and it won’t happen right away. It’s not that easy, like picking six players and a coach letting them compete against the best of the best in the world.”
Following this, he said that the entire community needs to work together to improve the esports ecosystem in the country. “What all the orgs (organizations) are doing now, with all the new players coming, we will have to nurture hundreds of such talented people; only then will we find people that are capable enough of going up against the best of the best. We are trying, and we will ensure that enough representation and opportunities are given. But it’s up to you and the entire region to work with us and level it up. It is not going to happen by itself,” he added.
He further mentioned that Riot Games had picked the 30 best esports organizations, and these 30 orgs have picked the best players from across the world. As a result, there won’t be anything easy in the League.
Sinha said, “Every single team and every single player in the League is the best of the best in the world. These are 30 of the best organizations, rosters, and players on earth. There won’t be anything easy in the League. It is the highest level of competition.”
With the entire roster locked, Global Esports is all set to move to its South Korea Bootcamp for the upcoming VCT 2023 Kick-Off tournament.
