Gear up CSGO fans, 50 days Lan event is on its way
Shiva Nandy, the CEO, and founder of Skyesports revealed the latest news through his Twitter account. CS:GO or Counter Strike Global Offensive fans in India are enthralled by the news as Skyesports is bringing the CS:GO League with a total of 8 invited teams. It’s a big moment for the CS:GO community in India, a massive LAN event is coming and it is set to be a 50 Days LAN event.
As per the tweet from Shiva Nandy, the LAN event will take place in Mumbai and will feature around 60 Matches. This is the only piece of news that is shared though, this is enough to cheer the whole community. It’s been a while since the community didn’t enjoy a mega CS:GO LAN event in the era of Valorant.
CS:GO’s changing scenario after December
Till December 2022, CS:GO was out of the competitive scene in India. But it was Skyesports who first took the opportunity to give back the game its lost glory. Skyesports organised the Skyesports Championship 4.0 which featured lost gems Dota 2 and CS:GO. The tournament was loved by everyone and fans enjoyed the most as the Grand Final was a LAN event. The best Indian CS:GO team was up against the SEA team in this tournament.
Following the idea of Skyesports, many others planned to get the game back on track. FanClash announced they will host the CS:GO Re-Ignite tournament. CS:GO is now experiencing a resurgence in India, which began with Skyesports’ hosting of the Championship 4.0 last year.
CS:GO’s Global presence vs the Indian scene
Globally, one of the most widely played games is still Counter-Strike Global Offensive. In India, the game’s reputation suffered a lot as players either retired or began to switch to other games. But as of the right moment, the game is on its way to a revival. CS:GO is still popular in many European regions, even if it was in India as well but as time passed the game lost its presence.
What to expect?
To make sure it stays, Skyesports has already planned a way out. This time not like the Championship, but as a proper league format. Shiva Nandy mentioned that the planning of CS:GO league will be different and all the information will be revealed soon. Execution of 20+ city-wise qualifiers is what is in their plans and the Café culture will be back, assured by Shiva Nandy.
Well, this is not the end, to make it one of the biggest events and India’s best, there might be a possibility of Esports-cricket-Bollywood-music associations along with this mega event.
