In the growing esports scene in India, ESL’s top rated player is a free agent

Soon after the ESL India Premiership 2019 – Summer LAN Finale in Mumbai, Horizon Sports India Pvt. Ltd. announced the dissolution of Signify citing conflict of interest with another subsidiary – COBX Gaming Pvt. Ltd. CS:GO and Dota 2 teams were no longer under the legal contract with Signify and the teams were set to disband.

A major part of its Dota 2 roster was signed by Global Esports and the CS:GO lineup also received individual offers. The offers were pretty decent, but the players were quite hesitant regarding individual offers and the five stuck together like an adhesive. They began playing under a new banner – Orgless5 and secured promising results in the online season of ESL India Premiership 2019 – Fall Season and various other online qualifiers.

Antidote and co. triumphed the Summer Finale of ESL India Premiership 2019 being their last event with Signify organization. They did not even drop a single map in the following online season of ESL India Premiership 2019 Fall Season and reached until the grand-finale of Conquerors Insignia Asian Subcontinent qualifier. But, every good thing has an end. Orgless5 couldn’t sustain it the long term without an organization.

Sabyasachi ‘Antidote’ Bose and Sunny ‘DEATHMAKER’ Das were reported to be playing together from Kolkata while Tejas ‘Ace’ Sawant played from his home in Mumbai and Vishal ‘haiVaaN Sharma and Lucas ‘yb’ Groening played from a cafe in Mumbai. However, ex-Signify management did provide them with significant assistance even after the dissolution. But their overall gameplay did take a toll.

They were the absolute favourites to win the Conquerors Insignia qualifier but Global Esports got the best of them. The pressure to find a new home, a pause in constant monetary support (i.e. salary) and absence of Bootcamp severely affected their state of mind in-game. The string of muddles finally led to an end in Orgless5’s journey.

After an arguably heated negotiation, Sunny ‘DEATHMAKER’ Das was eventually signed by Entity Gaming and Orgless5 is set to see the climax. “DM (Sunny Das) has returned to where he started from to complete his character arc,” Sid Joshi downright mentioning about his addition into Entity Gaming.

Surprisingly, Sabyasachi ‘Antidote’ Bose remains quite isolated this time. 23-year-old star AWPer from Kolkata is yet to find a new home. “It’s time to move on. I had a wonderful time at Signify then at Orgless5, but every story has its ending,” Sabyasachi wrote on Twitter.

Antidote is plausibly one of the highest-rated players in the recently concluded ESL India Premiership 2019 – Fall Season online phase. Exceptionally accurate and precise with the big green gun, Antidote is regarded as one of the finest snipers in the subcontinent. I personally was never a big fan of his AWPing but I must say that his recent plays with AWP have soberly grabbed my attention. He is a savage on the server and becomes much more fierce as he grabs further confidence.

He was also an integral part of much-hyped OpTic India roster. However, his significance dates back to JMD Gaming, Dare2Dream, Team Malhar, 2EZ Gaming and Global Esports rosters. His absence from the professional ecosystem will be a major loss to Indian Counter-Strike.

ESL India Premiership 2019 – Fall Finale will be the last event to witness Orgless5 play.
