Team Liquid announced the signing of their new Brazilian all-women's roster, who will compete in the VCT Game Changers events in VALORANT on behalf of TL. They signed the former roster of Gamelanders Purple to represent them, who has already seen great success in the Brazilian Game Changers scene.
The new Team Liquid roster includes:
- Ana “naxy” Beatriz,
- Paola “drn” Caroline,
- Paula “bstrdd” Naguil,
- Natália “daiki” Vilela
- Natália “nat1” Meneses
- Felipe “Katraka” Carvajal (Coach)
Last year, this roster won 13 tournaments in the Brazilian Game Changers circuit while playing as Gamelanders Purple. They took two Top-32 placings during the VCT 2021 Brazil Stage 2 Challengers Open Qualifiers. The 2021 Brazilian Esports Awards also awarded Daiki with Best Female Athlete and Best New Female Athlete.
Team Liquid has competed in the European VCT circuit since the start of the VCT last year. Their EU roster qualified to the VCT championship that took place in Dec., headed by star player Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom. The team was ultimately eliminated in the semi-finals by the eventual winners of the event, Acend, who defeated Gambit in the finals to become the 2021 VCT champions.
With Team Liquid's entry into Brazilian VALORANT, TL will now be in VCT competitions across two different regions, along with being able to enter Game Changers competitions with this roster as well.
