Global Esports has unveiled its second player for the upcoming Valorant Champions Tour (VCT) 2024 season. Following their decision to rebuild their Valorant roster from the ground up, the organization has been generating a buzz in the esports community. Their latest addition, Abhirup "LightningFast" Choudhury, promises to bring lightning-quick gameplay to the team.

Global Esports Announces Second Signing to Its VCT 2024 Roster

LightningFast, a longstanding member of Global Esports' Valorant division, has been at the core of the team's journey from the very beginning. Prior to their entry into the league, Global Esports stood as one of India's top Valorant teams, with LightningFast playing a pivotal role in their success.

However, the journey was not without its challenges. When Global Esports transitioned to the Pacific League, LightningFast faced visa-related issues, which hindered his ability to travel with the team consistently. Additionally, the team's roster had expanded to seven players, making it a competitive environment where securing a spot in the starting five was no easy feat.

Global Esports' decision to sign LightningFast for the VCT 2024 season signifies their commitment to nurturing homegrown talent and elevating their gameplay on the international stage. The announcement comes as a testament to the organization's belief in the potential of their players and their vision for the future.

This announcement follows the introduction of Benkai, the former IGL of Paper Rex, as Global Esports' first addition for the VCT 2024 season. The organization's strategic moves in the player transfer market indicate their dedication to building a formidable roster capable of competing at the highest level of Valorant esports.
