Indian Esports organisation, Global Esports seeing major changes in its Valorant roster. As of now, we already know that former duelist player Kim ‘t3xture’ Na-ra’ and in-game leader Jordan ‘AYRIN’ announced their departure from the roster. However, today Global Esports revealed that former Paper Rex player Benedict “Benkai” Tan has been added to the roster while Park “Bazzi” Jun-ki also said goodbye to the team.

Former Paper Rex Player joins Global Esports

The announcement of Benkai joining Global Esports came from the official handle of the organisation where they shared that they are rejoicing with the brand new addition in their Valorant roster who can bring major experience to the table.

Benedict “Benkai” Tan was once the primary face of Paper Rex Valorant. Know for his entertaining and charming character on the stage, he served as an in-game leader of the Paper Rex Valorant. However, after the addition of Ilya “something” Petrov, he was benched to bring some game-style changes to the current roster.

Moreover, Ilya Petrov quickly established himself as one of the team’s top performers, matching or even surpassing Paper Rex’s aggressive playstyle. The team secured their first-ever VCT title after defeating DRX Gaming. Furthermore, they made it into the VCT Champions 2023 final where they got outclassed by Evil Geniuses.

Update: Global Esports just announced that Park “Bazzi” Jun-ki is also leaving the team. They wish a good luck in his future endeavours.

Global Esports Aiming High in VCT 2024

Announced in early 2023, Global Esports hired players from all around the region like Ayrin from North America, SkRossi and Lightingfast from India, Bazzi and t3xture from South Korea and Monyet from Indonesia. This gave a true essence of Global esports vibes. However, things started to shake up after back-to-back dissatisfactory performances in  VCT LOCK//IN and VCT Pacific League.

The VCT Pacific LCQ performance was the last nail in the coffin as fans started to point out the issues in team composition and skill. Since then GE has given several hints towards major changes and updates. This all-roster revamp indicates that Global Esports certainly wants to make a better impression compared to its past outcomes.

After all these changes, this is the updated Global Esports Valorant Roster participating in the VCT 2024 season:

  • Benedict “Benkai” Tan (Singapore)
  • Ganesh “SkRossi” Gangadhar (India)
  • Abhirup “Lightningfast” Choudhury  (India)
  • Peter “Spin” Bradford (United Kingdom)
  • Morgan “BigTime” Jay is the assistant coach (United Kingdom)
