With an aim of strengthening their Valorant presence in the Indian esports arena, Velocity Gaming is all set to take another crucial step. The esports organization is reportedly said to acquire pro Valorant player, Debanjan Das aka ‘DeathMaker.’
A TalkEsports report suggests that the deal has already been made for an undisclosed amount. It also suggests that Velocity gaming has paid the amount to GodLike Esports to acquire the star player.
Das was a part of GodLike Esports and has registered some notable win for the team. He was formerly a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) player, but owing to the rising popularity of Valorant, he shifted to the new game.
Velocity gaming already has a Valorant roster which includes six players namely Agneya Koushik aka ‘Marzil,’ Vibhor Vaid aka ‘Vibhor,’ Anuj Sharma aka ‘Amaterasu,’ Tejas Sawant aka ‘rite2ace,’ Sagnik Roy aka ‘hellff’ and Mohit Wakle aka ‘mw1.’ The addition of DeathMaker marks the entry of a seventh player in the team.
Over the past few months, Velocity Gaming has undergone significant changes. Key player Karan Mhaswadkar aka ‘Excali’ exited the organization and joined Samurai Esports. His place was filled in by Agneya Koushik aka ‘Marzil.’
Similarly, another key player, Sabyasachi Bose aka ‘Antidote’ also quit the organization to join GodLike Esports. Later, Mohit Wakle aka ‘mw1’ replaced Antidote just ahead of Valorant Conquerors Championship 2021.
Although the deal between GodLike Esports and Velocity Gaming for DeathMaker is ongoing, there hasn’t been any official confirmation from either of the organizations. However, fans can expect an official announcement soon.
It would be interesting to see how this new seven-player squad performs under the Velocity Gaming banner. DeathMaker is undoubtedly a valuable addition to the team due to his versatile gameplay. He will surely yield best results for the organization.
