Global Esports to Reportedly Bid Farewell to SkRossi

Global Esports, the only Indian esports organization in the Valorant Franchise League, is reportedly considering potential roster changes. According to a report by WIN.gg, the organization is evaluating the replacement options for its star player Ganesh “SkRossi” Gangadhar, who has been on the team since October 2020.

SkRossi to Reportedly Depart from Global Esports’ Valorant Roster

SkRossi has been a key player in Global Esports’ Valorant journey since its inception. He has played a crucial role in helping the organization acquire the franchise slot, and was one of the only two Indian players on the roster since the beginning of Franchise League. However, the player is now reportedly set to explore new opportunities, leaving a void in the team. Global Esports is currently considering its options and might be looking at talent within the Pacific region. SkRossi’s departure will leave the Indian organization with only one Indian player, Abhirup “Lightningfast” Choudhury, on the team.

With teams in partnered Valorant leagues barred from signing new players until the upcoming month, the roster changes will start in the next few weeks across major regions. The timing aligns with the upcoming Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) Offseason, where teams get the opportunity to recalibrate their rosters.

SkRossi’s Contributions in Global Esports

Global Esports, one of ten franchise teams from the Pacific region, has faced challenges in attaining success in the Pacific league over the past year. Despite this, SkRossi’s contribution to the team’s history in Valorant cannot be understated. Notably, during the most recent VCT Pacific league’s regular season, the team secured an eighth-place finish.

In terms of SkRossi’s individual performance, according to VLR.gg, he has maintained a commendable 1.02 overall rating and an average combat score of 225.5 in the Pacific league, which is at par with other prominent players. Additionally, with his massive fan following, largely from India, gave a massive morale boost to the team.

Global Esports’ journey to secure a spot in the VCT 2023 Masters Tokyo faced hurdles, ultimately leading to their participation in the Last Chance Qualifiers (LCQ). Unfortunately, the team failed to secure a single map victory in the event, resulting in a second-last finish. Interestingly, according to VLR.gg, SkRossi was among the lower-rated players during the event, with 0.6 overall rating and an average combat score of 140.


Looking ahead, Global Esports is gearing up for the next VCT Pacific league, where it will re-engage with the region’s other franchised teams. However, SkRossi departure might not bode well with the Indian audience as he is one of the most prominent Indian Valorant players. It will be interesting to see how Global Esports navigate through this decision.
