The rising Valorant scene in India is set to have its own set of roster drama or so it seems. Global Esports have decided to bench Sagnik ‘hellfightR’ Roy from the active Valorant lineup with immediate effect, just a couple of days after announcing their roster.
GE CEO Rushindra Sinha clarified the organization’s reasoning behind the benching. According to Rushindra, hellff revealed his intention to leave for VLT Gaming just days after having signed up for Global Esports.
This, as he iterates, is a direct attempt of poaching from VLT star Sabyasachi ‘Antidote‘ Bose. While the two players have called it a mutual decision between the players themselves, the Indian Esports scene must not remain oblivious to the obligations that are attached to signing a contract.
Rushindra further exclaimed that he expects VLT Gaming to join hands in improving the situation surrounding contractual obligations in the Indian Esports scene.
The attempt at a move for hellff suggests that the player is likely to be brought in for Vibhor ‘Vibhor’ Vaid, with hellff also proficient with Cypher.
Rushindra further states that hellff wasn’t the only player that was contacted over a potential move. However, it seems the former CSGO pro is the only one that agreed to it.
It is high time the Indian esports world recognizes the ethics behind contracts and dealings and treat it more valuable than just a piece of paper.
