TSM Unveils Female Valorant Team

Published: Mar 18, 2021 - Last Updated: Jul 27, 2023

The women’s Valorant scene is growing rapidly, and esports organisations are slowly catching on and seizing this new opportunity. TSM has just introduced their own new female Valorant roster, just in time for the upcoming VCT Game Changers. They have joined the ranks of teams such as C9 White, and the newly revealed CLG Red, and will now be competing on two fronts in Valorant.

TSM starts a new chapter

TSM have just revealed their new female Valorant roster and will be embarking on a new and exciting journey. The founder and CEO of TSM, Andy “Reginald” Dinh, used this opportunity to share some positive comments:

“This team represents the core values of TSM. We wanted the best players to build out our competitive VALORANT presence – and we found them. Cath is a veteran leader who has shown clear dominance in various matches since 2017. Athxna shows real prowess as an in-game leader, and with the raw skill that LunarKats, mle, and Zoe possess, I see huge potential for this team.”

One of the veteran members of the team, Catherine “CAth” Leroux, is a former women’s CS:GO professional player. She was a member of CLG Red and Team Dignitas Female, so she’ll be bringing a lot of experience to the table. Although she left her CS:GO career behind her, she’s excited to step into Valorant.

“I’m beyond excited to join a well-established organization like TSM and bring my previous experience from CSGO into a fresh game like Valorant. My competitive drive never left, and I’m looking forward to competing again under the TSM banner.”

TSM have announced that the new team will be participating in the upcoming VCT Game Changers Series, starting in the open qualifiers on March 19th. Riot’s new event is a part of their latest competitive initiative, and is designed to complement the current competitive season by offering new opportunities for women and other marginalized genders in Valorant. The first round of VCT Game Changers Series will begin in North America, in just a few days.

Will other brands follow suit?

It is clear that Valorant is shaping into something much larger than what was initially anticipated. Not only has the game managed to captivate the world of first-person shooter games, but it has also attracted fans from other Riot titles. While some prefer the old-school CS:GO style, others have embraced the more open concept of Valorant. The scene is on a steady rise, and we’re seeing more elements being added every day.

The spike in women’s Valorant popularity has already sparked much interest, and companies are working behind the scenes in an effort to incorporate this rising trend into their own structures. TSM are paving the way for others to come, and Riot’s recent initiative will help attract more talent into the game. It’s only a matter of time before we start seeing more women’s Valorant teams emerging in this new and developing scene.
