Roster complete.

Please welcome our new 5th player to #TSM VALORANT X, @EllieGGs

Ellie started off her professional Valorant career with Man I Love Fwogs Man I Love Fwogs Inactive Esmé Esme Phillips dnos dip alpine Tyler Reid , where she remained for six months. She moved on to NOTHING2LOSE NOTHING2LOSE Inactive ARIANARCHIST Ariane Lafrenière artStar Carolyn Noquez maryna Maryna Semyaniv starriebun Katherine So Ellie Elena Garland , which proved to be a top contender in NA - the team won VCT Game Changer Academy twice in a row in July and August 2021, as well as placed 2nd in the Sakura Cup #2, behind TSM X.

XSET signed the N2L roster in September 2021 and recently rebranded to XSET Purple after competing as XSET Female for nearly a year. Despite making it to the playoffs stage and closed qualifiers multiple times, the roster could not wrangle a top three-finish. After multiple roster shuffles, XSET parted ways with Ellie on Sept. 16.

TSM X have a steep mountain to climb for a chance to represent North America at the upcoming international Game Changers Championship. The team's performances at previous Game Changer events this year have left them very little chance of qualifying through circuit points, and they need to win the upcoming VCT Game Changers NA Series 3 to lock in the second North American spot at the event.

Aware of the challenges she and TSM X have ahead of them, Ellie elaborated on what she brings to the team and her expectations for their next showing, saying:

”Co-IGLing for a new team is a little strange because I don't know the [team's] playstyles as well yet, but I'm super happy with the progress we're continually making. I've been able to bring in some of my own insights and knowledge from my past teams. We're all getting more comfortable working together and I really feel like we can be a powerhouse.”
