It’s no wonder that the world’s leading esports organizations want to invest in the growth of new talent. By this, we mean VALORANT Game Changers, as this division created by Riot Games continues to reap incredible success.

Karmine Corp is one of the most important names in the esports scene, especially in Europe. KCorp has decided to venture into this new world, as the organization has announced its new female lineup for VALORANT Game Changers 2023. This demonstrates their outstanding dedication to promoting the next generation of competitive players in the GC scene.

KCorp enters the VALORANT women’s scene

In the last few hours, the European organization has revealed its VALORANT women’s lineup for Game Changers 2023. The statement was made through their official Twitter account, where they said:

“A new adventure begins…. ⚡️

Welcome to the Valorant Game Changers roster.”

KCorp Lineup

To build the roster, the organization concentrated its search for players in France and managed to secure the services of Asma “LiriLia” Boughida and Nouhara “Ninou” Marcos. Both come from Rix.GG, a team that, while not attracting much attention, had remarkable performances during the year, finishing third in GC Series 2 and then fifth or sixth in Series 3.

LiriLia will be the team’s IGL with a 1.06 rating and 200 ACS at the end of 2022. This player stands out for playing with Astra and Omen, i.e., controlling agents. On the other hand, Ninou finished with a score of 1.12 and 213 ACS in the starter position.

At the beginning of 2021, Mathilde “Nelo” Beltoise left TENSTAR Nova, where she had been a teammate of Ninou and LirLia. Nelo, who competed throughout VCT 2022, rejoined the active roster following the dismissal of the other two players. On the other hand, Mélina “MelHssn” Houssein is somewhat unknown on the scene, so there is not much information about her.

Lea “matrix” Ransquin, the only Belgian club representative, completes the last piece of this puzzle. She previously played in the Turkish organization FUT JEFF.

Following the announcement, the KCorp women’s roster for the VALORANT Game Changers is as follows:

  • Asma “LiriLia” Boughida
  • Nouhara “Ninou” Marcos
  • Lea “matrix” Ransquin
  • Mathilde “Nelo” Beltoise
  • Mélina “MelHssn” Houssein
  • Mathieu “LaAw” Plantin (Head Coach)

VCT Game Changers

There is no doubt that the VCT Game Changers had a very successful 2022 season, which is paying off heading into this new season. Many major organizations are building their lineups to elevate the level of competition.

The 2023 VCT Game Changers will begin on April 24 in Europe, with four teams invited and 12 more to qualify through open tournaments.

It is not yet known which teams will be invited. However, it will likely include Guild X, the other EMEA qualifying team, and G2 Gozen, last year’s Champions Tour champions. The new Karmine Corp team will have to work through the qualifiers to advance to the inaugural series.
