Global Esports Removes Monyet, Only Two Active Valorant Players Remain


Global Esports has bid farewell to Indonesian prodigy Monyet and is now down to just two active players.
Monyet was under contract with Global Esports till 2025 but has been let go, adding fuel to speculations about his possible signing with Paper Rex.
Global Esports is all set to undergo a massive Valorant lineup rebuild and everyone is waiting to see their new roster for VCT 2024.

Global Esports has bid farewell to its last remaining international player, Cahya "Monyet" Nugraha, the prodigy from Indonesia who was arguably the best player in the lineup fielded by the organization during the Valorant Champions Tour 2023 (VCT).

The 18-year-old is among the highest-rated Valorant players from the Asia Pacific (APAC) region and it is definitely the biggest possible loss for Global Esports to incur while heading towards a major overhaul for the VCT 2024 circuit.

Following this announcement, Global Esports is down to its final two players, Abhirup "Lightningfast" Choudhury and Ganesh "SkRossi" Gangadhar. Both of them have been a part of the organization since 2020, long before it became a part of the Valorant franchise league, but nothing can be said about their future at this point in time.

Global Esports Bids Farewell to Monyet as Roster Rebuild Catches Steam

Half of what was being speculated by the community has come true with Monyet departing Global Esports, but it has not been confirmed yet if he would be joining Paper Rex or not.

The highly skilled youngster from Indonesia started his professional Valorant career with ONIC Esports in November 2020 and two years later went on to join Global Esports, competing in the first-ever franchised model of the Valorant Champions Tour and making a name for himself.

His standout performance was probably the match against DRX during the regular season of the VCT 2023 Pacific League, where he was playing Astra and stunned everyone with his 39-kill rampage, achieving an astounding ACS of 327 and setting a new record at the time.

Unfortunately, Monyet will not be contributing to the success of Global Esports in VCT 2024 and has been dropped from the organization despite his contract being valid till 2025.

This most likely points towards a possible buyout and rumors about Monyet making his way to the Singapore-based organization, Paper Rex, seems to be catching steam.

Paper Rex will be bidding farewell to one of their star performers, Wang "Jinggg" Jing Jie, who will not be able to compete with the team in VCT 2024 due to his commitment to serving in Singapore's National Service.

It will be interesting to see where Global Esports goes from this point with only two Indian players remaining in its active Valorant roster. A proper rebuild is around the corner and fans are waiting with bated breaths to see what the organization has in store for them.
