Roster for The World Championship (TWC) CS:GO was announced late last night and it was a moment of joy for the community as most number of selected players were favourites. Team India’s lineup has, RiTz, sMx, One, Manan, MithilF. They face Palestine and Kyrgyzstan in the online qualifiers.
Team India under guidance of team manager, Karthik Rao will be playing in the TWC Asian qualifiers today at 3:30 & 4:30 and hopes are high because of the experience some of the players hold. We have been covering the news on how tough and technical the decision was and it took a couple of months to actually decide what players will be fit to represent the nation.
Ritesh ‘RiTz’ Shah, IGL
Jigar ‘sMx’ Mehta, Entry fragger
Mithil ‘MithilF’ Sawant, Lurker
Manan ‘Manan’ Bhat, Support
Bharat ‘one’ Reddy, AWP
Meanwhile the announcements of the roster were delayed, we were lurking into what could be the reason behind the delayed reveal and in a conversation with Karthik, we were informed that the players were not only selected on the basis of the skills and experience but also, the fact that latency will be a huge drawback, players with talent and skill will also be required to check their latency before being named in the final roster.
A matter of fact that the games will be played on Germany’s CKRAS servers, the latency for Asian teams, specially Indians will be a huge drawback because of the lack of connectivity infrastructure.
We still expect India to be the best at their Group and be among the 3 LAN finalists from our region. We will be hosting a giveaway for our readers. Tell us in comments below, Who do you think will be the BEST player overall? All the correct answers will get prizes. No, really!
