“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”- Dr. Suess
Over the past two years, Signify, arguably one of India’s best esports team has had the privilege of participating in various national level tournaments, represented India at multiple International tournaments besides working with some of the finest talents in the Indian esports circuit. With a heavy heart, they’ve announced the team’s dissolution.
As Signify, a product of Horizon Sports India would continue to scale, there would be no immediate solution to prevent the conflict of interests stemming from the ownership structure of Cobx Gaming and Horizon Sports. Therefore, in the best interest of the players and management, the company has decided to dissolve the Signify brand and our accompanying teams effective 1 July, 2019.
In the past two years, Signify, both DOTA-2 and CS: GO teams have time and again proven their skills and won various renowned titles in the esports circuit in India and represented the country in various prominent tournaments internationally. From having rosters belonging to different countries to forming an all Indian team to introducing a brand-new CS: GO team, Signify has come a long way. Unfortunately, as all good things come to an end, their journey too has come to end.
Addressing this decision, Horizon Sports co-founder Rajdip Gupta mentioned, “With the interest of avoiding conflicts arising from the ownership structure of Cobx Gaming and Horizon Sports , we have decided to dissolve the Signify. Two years ago, we formed the team with the intention to promote professional gaming and expanding professional teams in India. Today, the esports ecosystem in India has flourished tremendously and there are multiple professional teams set-up, hence, we believe this is the right time step out and avoid any sort of conflict with Cobx Gaming as we are actively involved in organising tournaments. We would also like to thank our players for giving the team their all and wish them the best for what lies ahead. As an organisation we will be doing everything we can to help the players secure the next step in their career and find their ground. We are sure with their skills and experience they will achieve great success.”
Before dissolving as a team Signify has thanked all who have showered their support from the early days till today. They said without the support of the media and their patrons, without the people who showed up at their meet and greet, without the loud cheers every time they were up on stage this would not be possible. For them, it’s been a dream which came true.
