The European esports organisation Guild Esports has just introduced its newest women’s Valorant squad called Guild X. The Valorant roster was signed yesterday, right on time for the upcoming VCT Game Changers: Series 3 where this team will make their first appearance.
Guild Esports will now have two teams that will compete in Valorant Champions Tour. The main lineup will fight for a spot at VCT Champions in the VCT EMEA: Last Chance Qualifier, and the new Guild X squad will try their luck in the VCT Game Changers series.
Guild Esports is expanding
Guild Esports has been competing in Valorant Champions Tour since the very beginning. The main team has achieved some pretty solid results, but they still haven’t managed to actually win a tournament. They missed their chance to qualify directly to VCT Champions 2021, but there’s still hope. The VCT EMEA: Last Chance Qualifier is the last chance they have to qualify, but it’s going to be a tough battle.
The introduction of the Guild X roster will allow Guild Esports to continue fighting in VCT Game Changers and stay competitive in Valorant, even if they fail to secure a spot at VCT Champions. In any case, the organisation has made a major move by signing this new roster and hopefully they’ll achieve great success in the Game Changers series.
The New Team
Guild X is a brand new women’s Valorant team that will be representing Guild Esports in the upcoming VCT Game Changers: Series 3. They will be competing with some long-established lineups such as Cloud9 White, CLG Red, Dignitas Female, TSM Female, and the more recent Complexity GX3 team.
The current Guild X lineup is:
- Klaudia “klaudia” Beczkiewicz
- Yağmur “Smurfette” Gündüz
- Vivian “roxi” Schilling
- Anastasia “Glance” Anisimova
- Sophia “Kim” Benfakir
Guild X is a new squad and they’ll have to compete with teams with much more experience. The one thing they have going for them is the fact they have a complete 5-man roster, so they don’t have to rely on player loans during some tournaments. They will play their first match on September 27th, but the exact matchups have not been revealed yet.
What happens next?
The introduction of the Guild X Valorant team will give the organisation some breathing room they desperately need right now. They must win the VCT EMEA: Last Chance Qualifier to compete in VCT Champions, but that’s easier said than done.
Teams like G2 Esports, Team Liquid, and the Turkish powerhouse SuperMassive Blaze are all competing in the event. To make matters worse, only one single team will qualify.
If they manage to win against all Valorant betting odds, that’ll be the best case scenario. However, their chances are not looking great. If the Last Chance Qualifiers don’t work out, they’ll still have Guild X to shift their focus on.
