Gamer in Focus is a segment that is dedicated to esports players who are toughing it out in the Indian gaming scene right now. We reached out to professional esports players in the country across different games with a few questions.
I started gaming during my college days about 12 years ago. We used to skip college and go to a gaming cafe and play games all day. Then one day, I saw a team playing Counter-Strike 1.6 and after watching them, I learned that there was a whole different side to gaming: competitive. After that, I started practicing seriously and wanted to be the best at it.
Counter-Strike - I love the game because it tests your reflexes, co-ordination, aggression, presence of mind and of course, there are a lot of headshots.
I play for U Mumba eSports (Counter-Strike:Global Offensive division), it’s one of the best organisations I’ve played for, in terms of professionalism and player management.
I would have loved to play versus 2017's Entity Gaming roster.

Losing Dew Arena 1.0 was hard, but definitely memorable.
GeT_RiGhT, because he's one of the most iconic Counter-Strike players of all time.
No, I have my own import-export firm.

I have been playing for over the past 11 years now. During my early days, I remember there were hardly any events and the prizes were pretty much non-existent. Esports has come a long way since, but there is definitely still a lot of potential for growth in the industry, especially here in India. For now, the community is varied, people don't appreciate good content, people would rather pay to watch corny movies rather than appreciate hard work and quality gaming.
