India did performance good but not well enough to win a title, the lineup was Ritz / Ribbi / MithilF / Manan / sMx  which was led by Karthik ‘Catalyst’ Rao, the team manager. However, this time around, the format has been changed and there are no managers but captains deciding the lineups for their respective nations. It will be intense to see who all will be in the lineup choose by Tejas ‘ace’ Sawant, since there are too many players competing at the same level.

The top most players in India, all will be called for try-outs where only the best ones will be selected to represent their nation, we’ll wait and see how well it goes with ‘Ace’ who has himself being an experienced player in the CS:GO Indian community.
