Ghatak stated the following about the participation of Indian players in International events,
“Many players have a dream of representing the country and playing against the international teams and they asked me whether they would be able to participate in such events or not.”
“So, whenever a tournament of such nature is announced, then Krafton will be building a framework to allow all talented Indian players to showcase their skills in these international events. Chill and don’t worry as Krafton will be looking after the players. “
