Team SoloMid, also known as TSM, have officially announced their second Valorant roster — an all-women team that will compete first in the VCT Game Changers Series I open qualifiers.
Helmed by a veteran Counter-Strike: Global Offensive pro in Catherine ‘CAth’ Leroux, TSM’s newest Valorant team is the latest roster to be composed entirely of women. Following the announcements of Cloud9 White and CLG Red’s all-women rosters, TSM’s new team is the next squad to join the professional scene.
In a press release, TSM CEO Andy ‘Reginald’ Dinh explained that “this team represents the core values of TSM” and, given the talents and experience of the roster, has “huge potential.”
