G2 Esports Set To Pick Up Women's VALORANT Roster Who Previously Dominated CS:GO

G2 Esports Set To Pick Up Women's VALORANT Roster Who Previously Dominated CS:GO
XSET

One of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO)'s best female rosters are reportedly quitting the game in favour of VALORANT, and are set to be picked up by a European giant ahead of the VCT Game Changers Tour.

G2 Esports, who boasts a male roster that reached the quarterfinals of the Stage 3 Masters, are reportedly picking up the all women's roster previously of XSET in CS:GO, as they look to make their debut in VALORANT, claims Dexerto

The foursome of Zainab "zAAz" Turkie, Petra "Petra" Stoker, Michaela "mimimimichaela" Lintrup, and legendary player Julia "julaino" Kiran should sign with the organisation, after a lengthy spell together at multiple CS:GO organisations like XSET, Besiktas, Team Secret, and their make-up Team, Originem.

Ex-XSET teammate Anastasia "kr4sylya" Khlobystina is not expected to join the roster, who have already kick-started life in VALORANT under the name of "The Originals". 

Rix.GG Lightening's inactive Anja "aNNja" Vasalic has signed up with The Originals for their opening VCT fixtures, and could be the final piece of their puzzle, should G2 make the signing official.

The side is most known for their multiple major wins in careers dating back to 2012. Having mostly been together since 2015, the roster has a multitude of DreamHack trophies to their name, alongside back-to-back-to-back Intel Challenge titles (from 2015-17).

Juliana, arguably the most notable female CS:GO player of all time, has earned approximately $47,000 in earnings throughout her career, most recently taking home first place in the DreamHack Showdown Winter 2020: Europe, with XSET. The 27-year-old Swedish IGL announced her retirement from CS:GO on September 16, and has likely been influential in the move to G2 Esports to start her new chapter.

So far, The Originals have won their first VCT Game Changers Group Stage Qualifier versus Renaissance, as they look to find instant success in VALORANT.
