Enigma Gaming has established itself as one of the most notable teams in the South Asian area since entering the Indian VALORANT circuit last year. The team is trying to improve after a less-than-satisfactory performance at the VALORANT Conquerors Championship by rebuilding its VALORANT roster. The organization confirmed that they have parted ways with Saharyar "BadmaN" Shaikh, Sameer "godvexy" Sharma, Rishabh "Ezzy" Gupta.
Enigma Gaming had recently qualified for the VCC play-offs, putting them in South Asian Valorant's 'top 4' club. On controller agents and Sova, BadmaN and godvexy were essential members of the roster. Furthermore, BadmaN was the team's in-game leader.
Enigma Gaming has signed Sabyasachi "Antidote" Bose and Tejas "Rexy" Kotian, two of the top laners of Godlike Esports.
Sabyasachi "Antidote" Bose began his gaming career as a player of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. He soon established himself as one of the region's greatest players. He left CS:GO in 2020 and joined Velocity Gaming as one of the original VALORANT players. He left the organization in mid-2021 and joined GodLike Esports after winning numerous competitions with them.
Tejas “Rexy” Kotian began his VALORANT career with GodSquad before moving on to Nobel Esports. XTZ Esports and Samurai Esports are two of the most well-known VALORANT teams he has played for. In March 2021, Rexy joined GodLike Esports.
Enigma Gaming has been enjoying a strong showing in recent tournaments, so the hiring of Antidote and Rexy came as a surprise. It's unclear how the roster will be affected by the latest adjustments. The departure of BadmaN also raises the question of who will be Enigma Gaming's next IGL. Some reports suggested that Shakir 'hikkA' Razak may become the new captain.
Enigma Gaming's new lineup is expected to include the following players:
- Shakir 'hikkA' Razak
- Akram 'Rawfiul' Virani
- Sabyasachi 'Antidote' Bose
- Tejas 'Rexy' Kotian
