SkRossi Confirms Fixed Playing Five For Global Esports


During the recent post-match interview, SkRossi confirmed that Global Esports plans on competing with a fixed playing five in the VCT 2023: Pacific League.
SkRossi did not mention the playing five but did point towards the latest lineup, used against Gen.G Esports, to stick around.
Global Esports is currently ranked seventh on the leaderboard with three more matches left to be played out in the next two weeks.

It seems Global Esports (GE) has finally settled down on a fixed playing five for the last few weeks of the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) Pacific League's ongoing regular season.

After two weeks of shuffling its roster around, the organization competed without making any substitutions to stun the dominant Korean side of Gen.G Esports. During the post-match interview, Ganesh "SkRossi" Gangadhar hinted towards Global Esports pinning down its playing five for the rest of the league, consisting of four international players alongside him.

Victory in the upcoming matches against RRQ, DetonatioN FocusMe, and Team Secret is crucial for the organization, currently ranked seventh on the overall points table with two wins and four losses under its belt.

Global Esports confirms fixed playing five for the remainder of VCT 2023 Pacific League

The regular season of the VCT 2023: Pacific League is about to conclude in two week's time and Global Esports is currently in danger of getting eliminated. For now, all that they can do is win the remaining matches and increase their chances of making it into the top six on the leaderboard.

In order to achieve this, Global Esports has decided to fix its playing five. At least that is what SkRossi had to say during the post-match interview, after handing a 2-0 upset to Gen.G Esports.

Talking about how the team has been performing till now and the plan they have come up with for the future, SkRossi said "If the players keep switching on and off it is a natural thing to happen. Like the flow state and the momentum will break at some point. I think switching players has its own pros and cons, but right now we all know that these are the only five that have to do everything in order to qualify."

He further mentioned that the synergy they have built is great and it has been a result of them practicing really hard. Even their communication has been on point and hopefully they will continue in the same fashion going forward.

Note: The related segment starts from 02:58:00 onwards.

Before the arrival of the two Indian players, Global Esports was forced to operate a completely international lineup. After they joined the team, the organization tried multiple combinations and seems to have finally locked down its playing five.

  1. Ganesh "SkRossi" Gangadhar - India

  2. Jordan "AYRIN" He - Canada

  3. Park "Bazzi" Jun-ki - South Korea

  4. Kim "t3xture" Na-ra - South Korea

  5. Cahya "Monyet" Nugraha - Indonesia

These playing five have already handed an incredible upset to Gen.G Esports and it will be interesting to see how they perform in their remaining matches of the regular season.
