A longstanding veteran of the initial lineup that dominated the Indian scene, Lightningfast was one of the two members that were retained for Global Esports' 2023 VCT season. However, unlike Ganesh "SkRossi" Gangadhar, Lightningfast only played two matches with the rest of the roster in the Pacific League against Talon Esports Talon Esports Asia-Pacific Rank #11 and Paper Rex Paper Rex Asia-Pacific Rank #1 before remaining on the bench for the rest of the season.
Global Esports surprised many with a diverse roster that included players from both the Americas and Pacific Leagues. Still, they were ultimately unable to achieve desired results within the Pacific League despite their efforts, ending their season just two spots outside of playoffs. With a shot at attending Champions on the line, the team was given one more chance to qualify through the Pacific LCQ, but were eliminated in their first match against Rex Regum Qeon Rex Regum Qeon Asia-Pacific Rank #23 and forced to watch from the sidelines for the remainder of the year.
In preparation for 2024, Global Esports elected to undergo a rebuild and released the majority of their roster last week. Lightningfast's announcement came one day after the organization acquired Benedict "Benkai" Tan from Champions grand finalists Paper Rex in exchange for Cahya "Monyet" Nugraha.
