With a fresh look and roster ahead of the 2024 season, Revenant Esports are ready to roll.
INDIA – Revenant Esports have announced the signings of former Global Esports player Jayanth “skillZ” Ramesh and former Medal Esports player Prish “Tricky” Valvani, bringing a fine mix of experience and new blood to their roster for the coming season.
The addition of the duo will bring the total number of players in RNT to five, completing the lineup and joining forces with the previously announced players: Kasif “Paradox” Sayyed, Michael “severiNe” Winata, and Dastan “dos9” Zhumagali. However, it remains to be seen whether there will be additional players joining as substitutes including the rumored move of Ganesh “SkRossi” Gangadhar to the team as previously reported by Tanmay.
skillz links up with Revenant Esports after solely playing under the Global Esports banner since his debut in VALORANT back in October 2020, where he played a pivotal role in establishing GE as the frontrunners in the Indian scene throughout the initial three seasons, continuing until their roster overhaul for the VCT Pacific League. The last trophy he clinched with GE was in 2022 at the Skyesports Champions Series which provided a qualification pathway to the 2022 VCT APAC Stage 2 Challengers.

More recently, skillz was enlisted by Global Esports to serve as a substitute during their OFF//SEASON campaign at Convergence, stepping in for Benedict “Benkai” Tan.
“It feels really exciting because it’s been a long time since I’ve played and with different teammates as well, so I can’t wait for the journey. My expectations are simple, like always, to win it all. Currently, with our two international imports, we are prioritizing effective communication and synergy in the team so we know we have our backs inside the game. Communication is not saying what’s on your mind, it’s also about ensuring others hear what we mean.”
Revenant’s most recent addition, Tricky, comes to the team following his tenure with Medal Esports in the 2023 season. At 18 years old, the youngster will be looking for a fresh start with his new squad as his previous team was unable to make it out of groups of both VALORANT Challengers South Asia Split 1 and 2, having finished in 7-8th and 9-10th, respectively.
“I am beyond excited to be competing at the top of VALORANT esports with Revenant Esports. It’s been a long and painful journey to get here and I am only looking to improve from here with my talented teammates. With no pain, there is no growth. With no growth, there is no purpose.”
With the addition of skillz and Tricky, Revenant Esports’ roster is now:
- 🇮🇳 Kasif “Paradox” Sayyed
- 🇮🇳 Jayanth “skillZ” Ramesh
- 🇮🇳 Prish “Tricky” Valvani
- 🇮🇩 Michael “severiNe” Winata
- 🇰🇿 Dastan “dos9” Zhumagali
