G2 Enters Women’s Valorant With the Most Competitive Team at VCT Game Changers EMEA
According to Dexerto’s Adam Fitch on Twitter, G2 will sign the current Valorant squad ‘The Originals’ composed of XSET’s former women’s CSGO team. The squad comprises legendary women’s CSGO players juliano, mimi, ZaaZ and Petra, who have competed for organizations like Team Secret and Team Orignem, but most famously as WeRunThisPlace. Before switching to Valorant, the squad was competing in women’s CSGO for XSET and won DreamHack Showdown Winter 2020: Europe. G2’s women’s roster will include former Rix.GG Duelist and playmaker aNNja to round out the squad.
G2’s pick-up of this legendary roster is sure to create waves in European women’s Valorant, but especially in North America, where Game Changers has already gone through three stages of the competition. A rivalry is sure to form between G2’s women’s team and Cloud9 White, currently, the best North American team competing in the North American version of VCT Game Changers. G2’s standard of excellence is sure to be enhanced by including their new women’s Valorant squad and drawing attention from those who are sure to invest themselves in the scene.
As the third day of round-robin wraps up today, we’ll see which teams qualify for the group stages and see how the new G2 squad fares against the other 15 teams competing at VCT Game Changers EMEA Stage 1.
