During the VCT LOCK//IN Press Conference, SkRossi shared how he switched over from a duelist to an initiator for Global Esports.
He revealed that it was a difficult move for him initially but he has gotten the hang of things now and will keep improving with time.
SkRossi will be playing as an initiator for the first time ever tomorrow against Team Vitality.

Global Esports is in Brazil and is all set to go against Team Vitality in its opening match of the VCT 2023: LOCK//IN São Paulo. The Indian esports organization is the only franchise team from the South Asian region and it has a lot of support going into its first international tournament of the season.

The most talked about player from Global Esports is the Indian superstar, Ganesh "SkRossi" Gangadhar, so it was no surprise when the majority of the questions during the VCT LOCK//IN Press Conference were directed towards him.

One particular segment focused on the player's new role in the revamped lineup, in regards to which SkRossi spoke about the challenges faced by him while transitioning from a duleist to an initiator.

SkRossi explains how he is adjusting to the role switch from Duelist to Initiator

It is not an easy task for professional Valorant players to switch the role that they have been playing and practicing for years, but in order to excel certain changes are necessary.

This is exactly what was demanded from SkRossi and the 25-year-old complied with the team's necessity, leaving behind the role of a duelist and switching over to become the new initiator for Global Esports.

"It is like a new challenge for me. A reset for my entire thing because since two years I have only been playing duelist but now it is a new role. I have to learn a lot of new things about being an initiator, calming myself down and not giving away my life easily in the game by taking unnecessary duels or risk," says SkRossi.

He further shared that this transition has been hard for him, especially during the beginning, but thanks to a really good coaching staff and his teammates all the practice has started paying off.

"I am still working on my new role and will get better at it with time to dominate," remarked SkRossi.

Note: The specific segment starts from 2:30:38 onwards.

The new Global Esports lineup will be seen in action for the first-time ever against Team Vitality tomorrow on 23rd February at 22:30 IST. It will be interesting to see how the team performs in the absence of Michael "WRONSKI" Wronski and SkRossi stepping up as the initiator for the side.
