Simar "psy" Sethi

How did you get into gaming?

I used to play CS 1.6 but sucked at it. I was gifted CS:GO in 2014 by my friends on my birthday and got the rank of Gold Nova 3 after intense love for the game. I saw people representing India through this game and decided to do something about it, but my friends would joke about how they would not even play with me. I once told them that in a year, we will see where I am and where you are, and now here I am.

The game you play and why you love it

I play CS:GO and the game has given me good recognition and great fans through it. My team is like a new family which adds to the flavour of loving what I am doing.

A little on the team you play for

I play for Entity Gaming. They are a professional esports organization based out of India.

Any specific team or player you would like to play against?

My idol is Niko and he plays for FaZe. I would love to play against him.

Favorite gaming moment across gaming?

My favourite gaming moment was when I was in Team Brutality in 2015. I was called a hacker because I was new and was defeating everyone. We set a  record of winning 3 back-to-back LANs in 72 hours, which makes it unforgettable.

Favorite eSports personality?

As much as I would like naming an idol, I feel that I've reached a point where  I can confidently say myself. *wink*

Is eSports your primary profession?

Yes.

Your thoughts on the eSports scene in India right now

At the rate at which esports is growing with new talents and players from other countries entering India plus viewership and parents showing their support, I feel optimistic about India.
