All women’s VALORANT teams signed by orgs in North America and EMEA

by Jessica Scharnagle and Brian Bencomo

The women’s scene in VALORANT is expanding with the ongoing VCT Game Changers tournament circuit, and it can be tough to keep up with all of the teams that are being signed by orgs, or experimenting with roster changes.

Keep up to date with all of the VALORANT rosters in North America and Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) that feature women and other marginalized genders with this tracker for teams that are signed to organizations.

North America

Cloud9 White

Cloud9 White were dominant throughout 2021, and they won all three NA Game Changers tournaments. They’ve made very few roster changes since their creation, which is indicative of how strong and cohesive this roster is.

Current roster:

  • Alexis “alexis” Guarrasi
  • Annie “Annie” Roberts
  • Jasmine “Jazzyk1ns” Manankil
  • katsumi
  • Melanie “meL” Capone

CLG Red

CLG Red have been around since 2015 with a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster, and they entered the VALORANT esports scene early on. Benita “bENITA” Novshadian, Melanie “rise” Tetreault and Claudia “Clawdia” Che are the core of the roster, with Kristen "bungee" Haight and Anyssa "amnesia" Rios getting added in October 2021.

Current roster:

  • Benita “bENITA” Novshadian
  • Melanie “rise” Tetreault
  • Claudia “Clawdia” Che
  • Kristen "bungee" Haight
  • Anyssa "amnesia" Rios

Shopify Rebellion

This is the team that has been able to take a map off of C9 at Game Changers. They signed coach Rob “rob-wiz” Kennedy in September and had their best results at Game Changers Series 3, where they finished second. Shopify Rebellion were previously Built Better and Moon Raccoons Black prior to that.

Current roster:

  • Kayla “flowerful” Horton
  • Diana “diana” Zhang
  • Vannesa “panini” Emory
  • Kiana “KP” Lytle
  • Han “it not han” Nguyen
  • Lorrian “Lorri” Elad

TSM X

TSM Female were created in March 2021 just before the first NA Game Changers tournament. Although their roster has seen just a few roster changes, they haven’t shown as much improvement as other teams who have been together since the beginning of Game Changers.

Current roster:

  • Mirna “athxna” Noureldin
  • Catherine “cath” Leroux
  • Emily “mle” Peters
  • Leah “LeahPanda” Nemchin-Cossman

Current roster:

  • Carlee “Carlee” Gress
  • Hannah “hannah” Reyes
  • Lee Lee “leelee” McNeil
  • Tiraye “Tiraye” Knox
  • Lynn “Lynn” Clarke

Dignitas

Dignitas had an all-women's team even before Game Changers was announced and had a women's Counter-Strike roster known as Dignitas Female. All members of Dignitas Female switched to VALORANT to form the core of this roster led by veteran in-game leader EMUHLEET.

Current roster:

  • Emmalee “EMUHLEET” Garrido
  • Amanda “rain” Smith
  • Melisa “Theia” Mundorff

VersionX

VersionX is Version1’s female VALORANT team. The players that form VersionX were on an orgless roster Just Breathe before they were signed. The team is brand new, and haven’t undergone any changes since the conclusion of the third NA Game Changers tournament of 2021, where they didn’t make the playoffs.

Current roster:

  • Kiara “milk” Makua
  • Rachel “rushhh” Lynn Hang
  • Katherine “Karra” Lee
  • Natalia “Natty” Jackson
  • Naomi “Naomi” Sauvola

XSET Female

XSET Female is made up of the players from NOTHING2LOSE, and the team made it pretty far in the NA Game Changers Series 3 in 2021. They were signed mid-tournament between the open qualifier and the main event, so they participated in the bracket as XSET Female and made it all the way to the lower bracket semifinal before getting ousted by Dignitas Female.

Current roster:

  • Katherine “starriebun” So
  • Carolyn “ArtstaR” Noquez
  • Elena “EllieTwitches” Garland

Complexity GX3

The female counterpart of Complexity Gaming is Complexity GX3. They were formed in September 2021, through the signing of the former team GX3. They didn’t get to the playoffs in NA Game Changers Series 3 and also are missing a fifth permanent member.

Current roster:

  • Lacey “akaL4CE” Dilworth
  • Alice “alimonstr” Lew
  • Annie “Aniemal” Lee
  • Madison “maddiesuun” Mann
  • Jennifer "refinnej" Le

EMEA

Futbolist Female

Futbolist are a Turkish esports org that signed their team prior to the first EMEA Game Changers tournament of 2021. They made it to the top 16 but were quickly ousted by BBL Queens in the first round. They did slightly better in the subsequent two Game Changers tournaments.

Current roster:

  • Ece “Kuripuuya” Selin Balıkdere
  • Zehra “Felipa” Durak
  • Donia “Nugget” Khaled
  • Lea “matrix” Ransquin

Current roster:

  • Damla “dati” Atila
  • İlayda “Lyda” Güzeldere
  • Reyhan “Sephia” Şimşek
  • Irmak “River” Peküz
  • Aslıhan "proxima" Uslu

Guild X

Guild Esports signed the female roster just before the start of Game Changers in 2021, and there was a lot of hype around their signing. Several big names appear on this roster, but their performance in the first EMEA Game Changers left a lot to be desired since they were eliminated in the first round of the tournament.

Current roster:

  • Klaudia “klaudia” Beczkiewicz
  • Yağmur “Smurfette” Gündüz
  • Vivian “roxi” Schilling
  • Sophia “Kim” Benfakir

Rix.GG Lightning

Aptly named opposite of their male counterparts, Rix.GG Thunder, the orgless EU team LAGALS was signed by the Rix.GG organization in April. There have been small roster changes since then, which seems to have worked out for them since they made it all the way to the final in the first EMEA Game Changers tournament in 2021.

Current roster:

  • Daniela “Jupi” Gradl
  • Nelly “Raina” Sosobrado
  • Paige “Padge” Thomas
  • Nicole “Noia” Tierce
  • Siana "Sia" Yoldez Matri

TENSTAR Nova

TENSTAR Nova have been around for a while, but they completely revamped their roster in August 2021. They dropped their entire team and then signed orgless team GangsterzZ. They took home first in the 2021 EMEA Game Changers Series 1 tournament, winning their final match against Rix.GG Lightning 3-1, which is the only game in the tournament where they suffered a map loss. They followed that up with another first in Series 2.

Current roster:

  • Asma “LirLia” Boughida
  • Lucy “Sliicyy” Tran
  • Nouhara “Ninou” Marcos Oraha
  • Clara “Cla” Rossi
  • Rachel “RacheLL” Kujawa

FireFlux Female

This Turkish esports team was also signed right before the first EMEA Game Changers in 2021, and they were immediately ousted from the tournament with an 0-2 loss to orgless team The Originals (later signed by G2), who made it all the way to the semifinals.

Current roster:

  • Berra “Berrie” Özbek
  • İra “ira” Trifan
  • Nilay “liyan” Bulus
  • Enise “turner” Kıldır
  • Ayşe “schnellÆ” Ergül
  • Kardelen “Destina” Bağış

Oxxgen Esports

A play on the chromosomes in the female body, Oxxgen Esports were formed in February 2021, with a few roster changes between then and now. They finished top four in all three 2021 EMEA Game Changers tournaments.

Current roster:

  • Zeynep “Ritha” Sualp Öztürk
  • Yağmur “rainssa” Şahin
  • Neslişah “Ness” Demir
  • Süreyya “Gia” Bayel

BBL Queens

BBL Esports’ logo is perfect for the name of their female team, BBL Queens. They lost their coach right before 2021 EMEA Game Changers Series 1 started, but they did OK. They made it to the quarterfinals before they were knocked out by The Originals.

Current roster:

  • Büşra “Banshee” Yurdabak
  • Nur “Eva” Çakır
  • Asena “Xecriona” Kevser Aydın

G2 Gozen

The Originals were originally a CS:GO team signed by XSET. After parting ways with the North American org in October 2021, G2 announced they had signed this roster as their female VALORANT team playing under the name G2 Gozen. In Japanese, "Gozen" is sometimes applied as a title for female samurai, and the name is a clever nod to G2's mascot.

Current roster:

  • Julia "juliano" Kiran
  • Michaela "mimi" Lintrup
  • Zainab "zAAz" Turkie
  • Petra "Petra" Stoker
  • Anastasia "Glance" Anisimova

Alliance.Coven

Alliance announced their entry into the women’s VALORANT scene in January 2022 with the signing of a roster formerly known as ChatBanned. That team finished 5th-6th in the latest EMEA Game Changers tournament, which took place in November. Before being picked up by Alliance, the roster was one of the best unsigned female teams in Europe.

Current roster:

  • Dana "Danah" Al-Madhoun
  • Julie "Pinkalie" Lim
  • Laure “Xaline” Mateos
  • Jade “jade’ Duffy
  • Lada “h8tedthemost” Kozhemyakina
