2019 wasn’t a great year for Dota 2 when it comes to numbers. The player base saw a heavy decline, as well as constant user complaints, went unnoticed.
During this time of turmoil, yet another disturbing news comes through with the announcement of Global Esports disbanding their DOTA 2 roster.
In a Facebook post, Global Esports accredited this decision to various factors right from community opinions as well as the decaying state of the game. Not much is happening in the Dota 2 scene in India and that is a harsh reality all gamers need to accept. With the boom of mobile esports and CSGO, Dota 2 was left behind.
Global Esports also wished their players the very best for all their future endeavours. They also added that with a little bit of fan support and enthusiasm, the game’s esports scene in India might just come back to life. We all will wait for that day when Dota 2 will be restored to its former glory.
The players of Global Esports were skilful and talented and had mastered the game better than any other Indian player.
Global Esports had the following line-up:
- Kj ‘MINO’ Vignesh
- Raunak ‘Crowley’ Sen
- Darshan ‘A35’ Bata
- Jeet ‘Swifty’ Kundra
- Balaji ‘BlizzarD’ Ramnarayan
- Sahil ‘Micro’ Viradia
Such heartbreaking news only reassures us of the volatility of esports where ever-changing parameters force organizations and audience to adapt.
We at TalkEsport congratulate Global Esports Dota 2 for their commendable legacy and wish them the very best for the future.
