The popular Asian esports organization, EDward Gaming, announced its all-female VALORANT lineup to compete in the upcoming VALORANT Game Changers.

This kind of news is extraordinary for the female competitive esports scene, especially in the Game Changers scene. The fact that large organizations like EDG decides to dabble in this project will serve to increase the interest in this competition.

EDward Gaming unveils its female VALORANT lineup for GC

There is no doubt that EDG is completely shaking up the competitive Game Changers scene by announcing its all-female VALORANT lineup.

However, it often happens in the women’s scene, where big organizations acquire the squads of other teams to play under their banner. In this case, EDG acquires the lineup of Oxyg3niOus, a prestigious lineup from this region of the world, to play under the name EDward Gaming Women.

About Oxyg3niOus

While it is true that Oxyg3niOus is a team that was created in January 2022, the team picked up a lot of steam as the months went by to the point of becoming one of the best women’s VALORANT teams in Taiwan. In addition, the team had a really interesting lineup of players who have proven their high level in the professional scene.

Oxyg3niOus was very close to qualifying for the VCT GC Championship 2022, as they played in the VCT GC East Asia: Qualifier playoffs. However, the team suffered a heartbreaking loss to FENNEl GC 1-2 in the tournament’s semifinals.

In this 2023 season, the team failed to surpass the expectations set, as in the three major tournaments they participated in, they could not go beyond a ninth-place finish. With the support of a top-level organization like EDG, we will see if the girls can reverse this situation and close the year in the best possible way.

On the other hand, reports highlight that Li “Billyo” Xinyu, former coach of BiliBili Gaming and FPX, is expected to take the team’s reins.

EDward Gaming Women’s lineup is as follows:

  • WawaLee
  • XiMiLu
  • Wang “Yusin” Qiyun
  • Lizhi
  • Clem

There is no doubt that this team revolves around Yusin’s current form, as she is the best player in terms of team rating. Likewise, they should perform better from now on, as playing under the banner of such a popular and big organization as EDward Gaming means leaving everything in every match.

Despite not having a good 2023, the EDG Women girls will now have to turn their level of play around if they want to qualify for the next VCT Game Changers Championship 2023.
