Esports organization Team SoloMid has announced a new, all-female Valorant roster. The full squad was revealed last night, including a CS:GO professional of serious renown. The side will be taking part in the upcoming VCT Game Changers events, including the Series 1 open qualifiers starting this weekend. Below you’ll the full new TSM Valorant roster, with what we know so far about the team.
The new TSM Valorant roster
The new TSM Valorant team comprises the following players:
- TSM Mirna “Athxna” Noureldin
- Twitter: @athxna
- TSM Catherine “Cath” Leroux
- Twitter: @CAthCSGO
- TSM Zoe “Zoe” Servais
- Twitter: @Zoessielol
- TSM Emily “mle” Peters
- Twitter: @mleQT_
- TSM Katherine “LunarKats” So
- Twitter: @lunarkats
To any seasoned competitive FPS fans, one name in particular is likely to draw immediate recognition: Cath. An accomplished Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional, Cath competed in teams like Dignitas, CLG Red, and UBNITED for several years. She earned a record four World Championships in the game’s female brackets before retiring from CS in 2019. The shift to Valorant will certainly make for a welcome return to competition in the eyes of her fans.
“I'm beyond excited to join a well-established organization like TSM and bring my previous experience from CS:GO into a fresh game like Valorant,” said Cath in TSM’s roster announcement post. “My competitive drive never left, and I'm looking forward to competing again under the TSM banner.”
