StrongVolts Esports has a gem of the team with talented individuals working days and nights for their passion for gaming & esports. Curious to know how they started and made a name in esports? Let’s begin!
What are Strong Volts Esports Organization?
Strong Volts Esports is a nonprofit organization that provides a platform for underdogs to showcase themselves amongst the top-tier teams in India. They had started their journey last year back on 4th July 2020 and aims to inculcate esports over India. The esports organization seeks to bring many opportunities for underdogs and deserving players in esports and encourage the esports ecosystem.
How were Strong Volts Esports Formed?
On one good day, back in July 2020, Arka Mukherjee [Mutant], the owner of Strong Volts Esports, was casually playing PUBG Mobile with Syed Mehmud Zaidi [Xaidi]. Moreover, right at that time, ArkaMukherjee had stroked an idea to execute his gaming organization.
Therefore, upon this plan, he shared his thought with XAIDI, currently the Strong Volts Esports manager. He casually asked XAIDI to manage the organization. At the initial phase, Mutant stated,
“As I am investing my money on the in-game purchases, why not invest in starting an organization”.
Arka Mukherjee talked with his elder brother Souradeep Mukherjee and named their organization Highrated [HR]. Also, XAIDI, manager of Strong volts Esports, suggested that the leader [Arka Mukherjee] change the organization’s name. Arka Mukherjee discussed this with his elder brother and asked XAIDI to name their organization himself. As a result, XAIDI suggested that Arka Mukherjee change and rename their respective organization to Strong volts Esports.
Arka Mukherjee found this name worth and accepted the suggestion, and from then, they are widely renowned by the name of Strong Volts Esports. Moreover, Arka Mukherjee had partnered up with the other three owners to inculcate Strong Volts esports smoothly and consistently.

As a result, presently, Strong Volts Esports is currently owned by:
Arka Mukherjee (Mutant)
Souradeep Mukherjee (Fear)
Sushabhan Mukherjee (Skywalker)
Nihas Ranjanmondal (Fidato)
How Town Esports got Merged into Strong Volts Esports?
Furthermore, after accomplishing some months and naming some tournaments upon their name, Arka Mukherjee asked XAIDI to suggest some valuable ideas for better engagement in terms of numbers and reach.
So, during that time, a respective organization naming Town Esports was hosting Tier-1, Tier-2, and Tier-3 PUBG Mobile scrims. LokeshKadian, AKA Loki, was the man behind Town Esports’ success, and he used to manage it entirely only by himself. Impressive, right?
As Strong Volts Esports searched for a scrim and tournament manager and host, XAIDI asked LokeshKadian [Loki], owner of Town Esports, to merge with Strong Volts Esports. LokeshKadian merely agreed with XAIDI’s offer and merged Town Esports into Strong Volts Esports, and Lokesh Kadian joined the Strong Volts Esports as a manager.
Strong Volts Esports Competitive Journey: Glimpse
Strong Volts esports had formed back in July of the year 2020. Consequently, Strong Volts Esports had crowned three PUBG Mobile tournaments in just a month of forming the organization.
They won their first PUBG Mobile tournament naming Desi Battle Ground Mania Season 1, in the second week of July. Furthermore, they dominated and won two more tournaments called PUBG Mobile Tournament and Squad Rush VOL2 in the last week of July.
Going ahead, Arka Mukherjee, one of the owners of Strong Volts esports, had thought to expand their organization alongside competing in PUBG Mobile esports. As a result, Strong Volts esports continued competing in PUBG Mobile. On the other side, Arka Mukherjee asked Loki to organize a PUBG Mobile professional tournament featuring invited teams and offering a massive prize pool of 30K.
Therefore, Lokesh Kadian (Loki) arranged the tournament and even invited some professional teams and named their tournament PMSV PUBG Mobile Strong Volts League. Also, Strong Volts esports got partnered with another organization for hosting PMSV. As a result, the prize pool of PMSV rose to a massive amount of 50K.
Consequently, the registrations and management were good for PMSV on the newly made discord server by inviting their mates and submitting four proofs of subscribing to their YouTube and Instagram handles for verification, and 2000 teams had already registered for the tournament.
But, after completing the teams’ registration and verification, another organization had back off from partnering with Strong Volts esports for hosting PMSV and kept their hands aside.
Although, even after getting scammed by the respective organization, Strong Volts esports had not denied the tournament, and they continued PMSV lonely and offered 50k by themselves. Furthermore, PMSV had going great, and the qualifiers and quarter-finals had achieved successfully.
Although, during the ongoing semi-finals of PMSV, PUBG Mobile got banned in India, and the entire tournament had ruined. Many players and teams left the competitive scenario. They left the discord servers, and the numbers went low despite the PUBG ban.
Moreover, Strong Volts esports had not stopped and tried to partner with another organization for hosting scrims. However, they got scammed by the respective organization once more, the downfall of Strong Volts esports.
Strong Volts Esports Downfall: The Fall of Emerging
After the ban of PUBG Mobile, back in September 2020, Strong Volts esports resulted in its downfall. They stopped all of its operations until December. Further, months passed, all of them tried researching to get the way out of the downfall and increase their engagement once again but failed.
However, back in the last week of February 2021, Xaidi called Arka and told him that he made a mistake in stopping Strong Volts esports from the last months. As a result, Arka agreed to Xaidi. They continued the operations of Strong Volts esports, starting with competitive.
Therefore, they formed a new roster on 2nd March, but the team had not performed well and resulted in the disbandment of the roster.
Moreover, they formed another roster, and that roster had qualified for PMPC Season 3 50k tournament finals. However, on day 1, they managed to get only 12 points out of three games. Everyone was left utterly disappointed with their performance.
Although, on day 2, the existing IGL of the team denied to play due to some reasons. As a result, they invited a new player naming Troye, who is currently playing for Aztec Esports.
Further, on day 2, they dominated the first match, secured a chicken dinner with 18 kills, and jumped to the 15th position from 26th position. Also, they carried out a chicken dinner in the second match showcasing exceptional duo domination with 13 kills.
After completing match 2, they were leading the leader board at the 5th position with 72 points. Further, in the third and last match of the tournament, they finished in the third position.
As a result, Strong Volts had ended the PMPC season 3 as runners up securing the second position with 91 total points. Troye had showcased fabulous gameplay, and out of the total 42 team kills, troye’s alone kills were 20.
Therefore, the same roster continued, and they showcased complete consistency for a few days in daily scrims. Moreover, after a few days, the same roster participated in the Gaming Arena 20K Tournament. Strong Volts resulted as the champions of the 20k tournament.
Further, one of the teammates asked the officials if he could play PMIC finals from another team as they had failed to qualify. As a result, the officials gently allowed him to play PMIC from another roster. And from then, the line-up broke as another player and troye both left the team.
Meanwhile, Strong Volts were again searching for a roster, and further, they appointed the same old roster that used to play before. Moreover, that roster won a 12k tournament and shown exceptional consistency for some days. However, they again lacked upon their performance after some days, and Strong Volts is still searching for a consistent, permanent roster.

Furthermore, Rav3n – a famous girl gamer and YouTube from S8UL, approached Slaygirl to inculcate girls in the gaming community. Rav3n, being a professional player and content creator, was unable to manage the whole curriculum. So, she asked Slaygirl to manage all things, and Slaygirl merrily handled all the things. She made the Superior clan for girls, from where most of the girls have learned and become a professional today.
Slaygirl gathered the girl gamers from Raven’s Instagram, YouTube, and discord handle and formed a good line-up for each. Then, she organized girl’s scrims daily, and Rav3n streamed those practice scrims on her channel. Girls got exposure to the gaming community from there and made an identity in the community.
Furthermore, Slaygirl managed the Violets line-up that had finished third in the official PUBG Mobile Superwomen’s’ Tournament 2019. The violets line-up is currently merged with Strong Volts and called SVOLT X Violets. As a result, Slaygirl even joined Strong Volts and managed both girl’s line-ups ultimately.
