The upcoming Valorant Challengers League South Asia (VCL SA) has spiced up the competitive scene within India. Prominent teams and organizations have started undergoing roster changes to accommodate foreign players and strengthen their lineup for the premier tournament.

One of the powerhouses from the country, Velocity Gaming, while bringing in experienced overseas talents like Domagoj "Doma" Fancev and Adam "ec1s" Eccles, have allowed its youngest player Saksham "Deadly10" Aurangabadkar to look for other opportunities in Valorant.

Earlier, AFK Gaming had reported that the new Velocity lineup for VCL SA would not comprise Deadly10 and Anuj "Amaterasu" Sharma. The information about the former is out, while the update on the latter is still pending.

Velocity Gaming permits Deadly10 to look for new opportunities in Valorant

The youngest player in Velocity Gaming's current Valorant lineup, Deadly10, announced yesterday on 20th February that though he is still under contract, the organization has granted him permission to scout new opportunities for the upcoming Valorant Challengers League South Asia.

This move was expected because sources close to AFK Gaming had revealed that due to ec1s and Doma making their way to Velocity, the organization would be dropping Deadly10 and Amaterasu from their active lineup.

Deadly10 being a talented youngster has opted to compete in the exclusive regional league with a new team rather than stick around and warm Velocity's bench.

This decision was met with mixed reviews from the community members, one half blaming the player and pointing fingers at the organization, while others backed him up and hoped that he finds a solid team to compete with.

Indian professional Valorant players like Kasif "Paradox" Sayyed (Revenant Esports) and Sabyasachi "Antidote" Bose (Orangutan) also vouched for Deadly10, further showcasing the skill and talent that he possesses.

Deadly10 is still very new to the competitive Valorant scene. He started his journey with Reckoning Esports in December 2021 and got signed by Velocity in September 2022.

With teams undergoing changes to bolster their respective lineups for the upcoming tournament, it will be interesting to see if any of the known organizations make the move and sign Deadly10 or will he be forced to compete through the Open Qualifiers with a makeshift roster.
