The probable return of Antidote & Tito as a duo

0

Ever since the fall of 2EZ Gaming, Rahul “titoSAVAGE” Sridhar and Sabyasachi “Antidote” Bose have been left high and dry with no actual lineup in action. As soon as the Winter Finale of ESL India Premiership concluded in the first week of February, Chinmay “PokI” Mehta announced his departure as the 21 year-old inherited the blue jersey, joining the ranks of Entity Gaming.

As fate would have it, Rahul and Sabyasachi announced their respective withdrawals on the afternoon of February 12. Since then, titoSAVAGE has been quite interactive with his fans through series of streams and ‘ask me anything’ (AMA) sessions.

Will be playing a Cafe Tournament in LEVEL UP The esports Café alongside FalKen HellRanger Mithilf and bondf tomorrow! 😀

Apart from this, 20 year-old has also been enjoying the IEM: Katowice Major and was seen playing a local cafe event with mixed lineup at Level Up cafe in Navi Mumbai.

On the contrary, since the ESL India Premiership ceased, Sabyasachi headed straight to his hometown, the city of joy, Kolkata. The 22 year-old AWPer has been catching up with his old school friends ever since. Much alike his former teammate, Antidote has also been streaming frequently on YouTube alongside Q&A sessions on Facebook Live. Alongside he has been vigorously rooting for Manchester United in the UEFA Champions League.

Although currently Sabyasachi is headed to Manali for a small vacation, the star player hinted that something big is underway. It seems that both of them have taken a short break from active scene as the Indian Counter-Strike circuit embraces to witnesses a sequence of shuffle.

Antidote and Tito came under the same roof past the forsaken fiasco. Soon after the disbandment of OpTic India roster, 2EZ Gaming acquired the service of Antidote. Tito on the other hand, has been a crucial component of Mumbai based organisation since a year and a half.

The duo began their journey against Chinese juggernaut, ViCi Gaming, in the ESL Pro League Season 8 – Asia held in first week of November 2018. They were able to take a map off with little to no practice and it seemed as beginning of what came next. Although, 2EZ also had terrible times when they fell short to a local team in Indian League Gaming (ILG) Qualifiers, Kolkata.

They also reached semi-finals of WESG South & West Asia Qualifier, but due to neglected administration and ping issues, match ended up favouring their opponents, Team ForGlory. Not to forget, squad was also the runner-up of recently held ESL India Premiership Winter Finale.

Since the two got together, they have achieved quite a lot in less than a quarter year. It will be interesting to see if an organisation signs the duo and whether they would get another opportunity to wholly achieve their partially earned glory.
