The 25-year-old has been part of Global Esports since 2020, and he gained quite a bit of reputation in the international scene through his explosive Jett plays. Moreover, as one of the only two Indian members of the roster, SkRossi received a lot of support from the big crowd of his home country.
SkRossi’s replacement is likely to come from the Pacific region – speculated in the WIN.gg report. During the 2023 OFF//SEASON, the player will be allowed to explore new options to continue his professional Valorant journey. With the Duelist player leaving the squad, Global Esports will have only one Indian member in the team – Abhirup “Lightningfast” Choudhury.

Global Esports were given a chance to compete in the franchised league of 2023, and they made their first-ever global appearance at LOCK//IN. Sadly, the squad failed to go past Team Vitality in their first match, and SkRossi had a disappointing debut in the series.
The Pacific League of 2023 was Global Esports’ chance to make it to their first-ever Masters and potentially Champions event. However, the team failed to perform amongst other Pacific talents, ending their League Play journey with a disappointing 3-6 record, which wasn’t enough to reach the Playoffs. SkRossi wasn’t present for the first three weeks of League Play, and after arriving in the fourth week, he started to play for the team and managed to secure a VLR rating of 1.02 in the Regular Season.
Even though Global Esports couldn’t make it to Masters Tokyo, they had a chance to achieve a Champions debut through the Pacific LCQ. Continuing their trend of a disappointing year, the team lost their initial match, ending their first year of VCT journey with no achievements.
It’s expected that Global Esports will be looking to make its Valorant roster stronger for their VCT Season next year, and that’s likely why the organization is trying to make several changes during the remainder of 2023.
