SkRossi Shares How It Feels to Represent India on International Valorant Stage
Not just for the team, but for the country.
The star player from India who is considered to be the face of South Asian Valorant, Ganesh "SkRossi" Gangadhar, had a great outing at the VCT 2023: Pacific League winning two MVP awards for his outstanding performance with Jett.
There were inconsistencies in how he played against different teams but he still showcased a more refined gameplay which was in coherence with the rest of his team's plans.
While winning and performing were surely two big aspects for SkRossi, another ingredient that made him feel complete was his desire to represent India on the global stage and the message he wanted to convey through this platform.
SkRossi talks about how he feels representing his country in the VCT circuit
SkRossi is one of the two Indian players currently competing in the Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) circuit and has already been seen in action at both VCT 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo and VCT 2023: Pacific League.
In a recent video, he expressed what it truly means for him to compete on the biggest international stage as a representative for his country, "It's a really good responsibility and it's a really good feeling, to compete at the highest level where not everyone gets this chance. Me being here, competing against the best of the best. It's an amazing feeling and to represent a country like India where there are a billion people, where there will be millions of gamers in the future."
This goes on to show the passion SkRossi has which is not just towards the game but to also push the boundaries of esports for his region in whatever way possible from his end. It is not the first time that he has publicly voiced such an opinion and has always been vocal about how he wants to see talented Indian players enter the international competitive scene at a much younger age.
"I hope, and I wish, I will be an inspiration to all those upcoming young players. So it is a great feeling to represent my home country and it's a very proud moment for me," adds SkRossi.
He goes on to highlight how there are only two players from India who are currently a part of the international competitive circuit and wants to utilize this platform to influence a change for esports in his country.
"All the people who dreamed the impossible. I want to show them that, even if you are not talented, if you work hard enough, you can achieve your goals," concludes SkRossi, who is out on a mission to use the VCT platform to make the impossible, possible.
