Guild Esports Recruits All-Female Pro Valorant Roster
Valorant’s getting some new competition with Guild Esports recruiting a female roster for the 5v5 shooter. Guild Esports picked up the roster of Project X, and all the players have signed a one-year contract, with an option to renew in a year if they’d like to. There will also be an annual salary for the teammates, and performance incentives. It’s really awesome to see opportunities like this show up for female players, like Guild Esports’ “Guild X” Roster.
Who Makes Up Guild X?
Guild X, the former Project X is made up of Vivian Mae “Roxi” Schilling, Yağmur “Smurfette” Gündüz, Anastasiya “Glance” Rival’evna, Benfakir “Kim” Sophia, and the captain, Klaudia “Cinnamon” Beczkiewicz. This is the fifth roster for Guild’s esports movement, and they’ve already won the “Women in Games” Community Cup. They’ve already started off with a win! You love to see it. As far as major events, we can expect Guild Esports’ female Valorant roster to take part in the VTC Game Changes EMEA tournament.
Kal Hourd, Chief Executive of Guild spoke of the announcement:
“We are incredibly proud to welcome our first all-women team to Guild. Ensuring that women have a route to inclusion and progression in the industry is important for the future of the esports ecosystem as its mainstream appeal grows and global brands seek to reach its growing and diverse audiences. Fostering inclusion in esports is part of Guild’s founding vision and our academy approach is a key part of making that happen.”
That kicks off next week and will help create more competitive opportunities for women in esports. Something we should all want, quite frankly. We’re for sure hoping for success for Guild X, as they bring the roster of Guild Esports up to 18 players. Competing in Fortnite, Rocket League, FIFA, and Valorant, they’ve got some serious players competing for Guild Esports. It’s nice to see more orgs embracing women in gaming as viable competitors.
