Talking about this achievement Goldy said, "I talk a lot with fans, with creators and with everyone, but today I am speechless. The journey we have mapped together as a team seems like a blur and a vivid memory all at once. What looks like a winning moment, is actually made up of those 100s of little moments everyday, where we put in the hard work, miss special personal events, sacrifice sleep, go through lows, brainstorm, rise again and create, create, create content like we mean it. It's such a moment, for all of us. Three cheers for the team!"

Similar feelings were portrayed by Thug, who labelled this moment as the biggest motivator for S8UL Esports to take things to a whole new level in 2023, going bigger than ever before.

"Love us or really love us, but we are, as of 10:35 AM IST today, officially the 'global content group of the year' and no one can take that away! So then, do dreams come true? As of now, I can proudly say that they can," expressed Thug, "We dreamt, we worked and clearly we’ve done something right, to be here today! And that's all I ever wanted, for us to do a lot of small rights, winning the right to win big.”

Lastly, MortaL also spoke on this achievement, "If we have learnt anything today, it's that a group of passionate people, sitting somewhere in a ‘developing’ country CAN create history. Seeing us being celebrated by the global esports community, it's a real feeling. It's really time to pause, reflect and feel happy. But we also have one eye on the future and we hope to break all records."
