SkRossi created history by becoming the first Valorant player from India to compete on an international stage at the VCT 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo.
Talking about his overall experience, SkRossi shared that he felt really good despite the loss against Team Vitality.
His final take was that Global Esports is not weaker than the other teams, the team just need to gain more experience which will automatically come with time.

Global Esports did not go far enough in the VCT 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo but its performance was applauded by many in the community. There was a lot of hype around the team's star player, Ganesh "SkRossi" Gangadhar, who ended up doing a lot of things in addition to playing on the main stage.

The 25-year-old represented his organization during the Omega Stage press conference, featured on the presentation desk, and is even going to be a part of the VCT LOCK//IN Showmatch.

In a recent video shared by Global Esports, SkRossi spoke about the overall experience of competing in his first-ever international Valorant tournament, the first player from India to achieve this feat.

It has been a tough journey for SkRossi to reach where he stands today. His journey up until this international debut was covered by Global Esports in an inspiring and emotional documentary titled 'The Story of SkRossi'.

Having faced a lot of hardships and shaping a path for himself in esports through adversity, SkRossi is a testament to the fact that anyone can achieve their goals if they set their mind on something they really desire.

"Experience of playing on an international stage was really good. This is the first time in Valorant that I am playing against international teams," says SkRossi, "It feels good to fly out to a different country and play in front of a crowd, to play with lots of different team players as the team is new."

He went on to share that playing against the top teams from around the world did not feel too intimidating because from the very first day they had started scrimming against them.

"We were playing well in the scrims, defeating other teams during practice. I think this is because even we are on the same level," says SkRossi brimming with confidence.

Talking about how he felt on the main stage while going against Team Vitality, SkRossi said that he was feeling confident while setting up his gear and testing everything out, but did go on to feel some stage jitters and even got tunnel visioned for a while after the match started.

Despite losing to Team Vitality, SkRossi thinks it was not related to a difference in skill.

"As a team, as players, we are really solid and strong. I don't think we lost because we are a weak team and our opponents are strong. We lost because of lack of experience," says SkRossi, ready to practice hard and put on a better show at the upcoming VCT 2023: Pacific League.
