Team SMG has announced its first all-female Valorant roster, comprising the core of the former Renatus White. The new squad will compete in the VCT Game Changers APAC 2022 series, as well as the main VCT circuit.
The organization, owned by JJ Lin, does not currently have a team competing in the VCT, and the new roster will be its sole Valorant team.
The all-female roster will be Team SMG’s only Valorant team
The Singapore core of Abigail “Kohaibi” Kong, Yu Ting “Envious” Ewa, and Kellyn “Kaephrodite” Sim has been playing together in the FSL Valorant circuit, before it became the official VCT Game Changers APAC.
Under Renatus White, they placed third at last year’s VCT Game Changers SEA: FSL Elite tournament, featuring eight of the top all-female rosters in the region.
The team has now added two new Thai players in Jularat “YOKY” Buaphan and Wanwisa “fixky” Pannil. They will be coached by Alex “falfalfal” Cheang, who used to play for Team SMG’s original Valorant roster.

“We have always been invested in nurturing the esports scene in Southeast Asia and with our new roster, we are confident in providing support to maximize the potential in our new roster,” said Orrin Xu, General Manager of Team SMG.
“Our all-female roster will be our sole Valorant roster and will receive the same extent of support that we have for our Dota 2, MLBB, and PUBG Mobile rosters. We aim to represent APAC in the global Game Changers tournament, as well as compete in the main VCT Malaysia/Singapore qualifiers.”
The team will debut under the Team SMG banner in the VCT Game Changers APAC Open playoffs on March 3.
