Q 1) Tell us about your esports journey so far. What motivated you to pursue esports professionally?

I started off with CS GO and then ventured into Valorant. I started Valorant very late and it has been tough for me as I was more comfortable with Counter Strike. I just wanted to compete as I’ve always been a competitive person and I wanted to see how far I would go if I put my everything into it.

Q 2) What made you transition from Counter Strike: Global Offensive to Valorant?

CS: GO was dying and everyone had switched to Valorant but I believed in the game. So I switched a year later than everyone because I believed in CS:GO but it had no future so I had to eventually switch.

Q 3) How has your previous experiences been at Orangutan Gaming and Revenant Esports as compared to Gods Reign?

I have nothing but great things to say about Revenant and Orangutan. They both are great organizations and I have a lot of respect for them but my time in Gods Reign has definitely been better as a player and as an employee. The boot camp here is better, the food is better and the staff is more friendly as it feels more like a family.

Q 4) What is your role at Gods Reign? Tell us about your gaming rig?

My role currently at God’s Reign is that I am an esports athlete that mainly focuses on Valorant and along with that I am a controller main as well. My current gaming rig is not that special, it is a Ryzen 5800x, RTX 2060 and 32 gb RAM.

Q 5) What are some of the biggest challenges that you have faced in your esports career and how did you overcome them? What would be a message that you would like to give to aspiring gamers in India?

The biggest hurdle I faced was the lack of stability in the gaming industry. One day you might be achieving a lot, the very next day you’re posted somewhere else. It is important to grow as a player as the only way to have stability in this industry is by improving your gaming abilities. The problem I personally faced was the ping and glitching issue when I used to play CS:GO.

Q 6) What are your short and long term goals for your esports career? How are you working towards achieving them?

My short term goals are learning new agents, methods and branching into different roles. I would like to learn dualist and my long term goal is to win multiple trophies and become a better version of myself.
