S8ul Esports has signed up for former team paratroops players and Innocent 5, as the organization is on its way to Valorant. Following Team Paratroops’ disbandment in January, S8ul Esports’ announcement comes after turmoil on the Indian Valorant scene. The dissolved roster had participated in the Innocent 5 tournaments and had achieved a significant outcome.
The squad quickly showed the enormous potential of all players from beating XTZ in its debut to leading Global Esports to the Grand Finals of the LogitechxLoco Battlezone.
But in the semi-finals, they finally bowed down in Innocent 5 for LogitechxLoco Battlefield 2, Reckoning eSport. However, after beating Team Tamila, the team rallied to ensure a third-place finish. It was only a matter of time before these players played with a notable esports organization with results like this under their belt.
It has established a relationship between two large sporting organizations, oblivious of the roots of S8ul Esports. Both the SouL and 8bit team are heavyweights in the Indian field, best known for their mobile PUBG supremacy.
S8ul Esports creates a lineup for a PC game for the first time. In view of Valorant’s enormous popularity and hype, a profitable company like S8ul Esports is naturally interested in a part of it. The roster advertised on Instagram by S8ul Esports:
- Mithul “Binks69” Nayak
- Harshvardhan “Kuzuri” Singh Panwar
- Shreyas “Edit99” Kshirsagar
- Sahil “Strixx” Rane
- Tanmay “NotFox” Verma
- Rishabh “EzzzYy” Gupta
In the light of the past record, it seems certain that this team will, with the support of a proper sports association, be one of the region’s top Valorant teams.
Agent Astra will be the 15th agent in the game, and she falls under the category of Controller, just like Omen, Brimstone, and Viper. According to the Official Astra’s Trailer (teaser from Valorant Official YouTube Channel), the description says, “Astra harnesses the energies of the cosmos to reshape battlefields to her whim. With full command of her astral form and a talent for deep strategic foresight, she’s always eons ahead of her enemy’s next move”.
