International Female CS:GO Lineup Announced by CLG Red After Roster Revamp
A new lineup to dominate the women's international CS:GO circuit.
The North American esports organization, CLG Red, has undergone a massive CS:GO roster shuffle parting ways with its regional trio of Diane "di^" Tran, Emma "Emy" Choe, and Jiliana "Juli" Tosic.
Following this decision, the organization drifted away from its completely North American roster and instead opted for an international female lineup with its three latest signings.
The mixed trio consists of Vivienne "BiBiAhn" Quach from Australia, Coline "Kaoday" Le Floc'h from France, and Marissa "madss" Dasta from the United States.
With these changes, the revamped CLG Red roster is ready for the second half of the competitive season as it looks forward to dominating the international circuit similar to how it rules over the regional tournaments.
CLG Red transitions to an international female CS:GO lineup following roster revamp
The former CLG Red lineup had four players from the USA and one player from Canada. This roster dominated the regional North American female circuit, winning four out of the five ESEA Female Cash Cup: North America - Winter 2022 tournaments, right out of the gate, and pocketing a total of $3,000 USD (INR 2,38,890) in prize money.
This was followed by the former CLG Red roster qualifying for the ESL Impact League Season 1 through the North American Division where they finished at the 3rd-4th position, faltering against FURIA Esports Fe in the semifinals.
They continued winning more regional Cash Cup tournaments that were part of the women's circuit, but when it came to international performance they lacked once again at the ESL Impact Valencia 2022, finishing in the 5th-6th position after facing tough competition from other female teams.
To replicate its regional domination on an international level, CLG Red opted to undergo a proper revamp of its female CS:GO roster ahead of the second half of the 2022 season, bringing in foreign talent and transitioning to an international lineup.
With a mix of experienced players and young talent that can add to the overall firepower of the team, the revamped CLG Red looks promising on paper, but only time will tell if they are able to hold the throne within North America while also winning international tournaments as well.
The team is set to compete in the upcoming ESL Impact League Season 2 which begins in a month's time, culminating with the $123,000 USD (INR 97,94,490) offline tournament in Jonkoping, Sweden around November.
