Popular gaming streamer Disguised toast has announced a female Valorant roster for Game Changers, but some fans aren’t happy.
Disguised Toast is one of the first streamers to dip their toes into Valorant esports with a professional roster. He announced a team featuring Joshua “steel” Nissan, inspiring many other content creators to assemble a pro team. But, Disguised Toast isn’t done. The streamer is now ready to take over the Game Changers scene with memes and streams.
Disguised Toast’s female Valorant squad is studded with popular content creators, including Kyedae. The roster will compete professionally, but according to Toast, it’s mainly about memes and content creation. Here’s the full Disguised GC lineup.

Valorant community slams Disguised GC team
You’d think the Valorant community would be happy that a notable streamer is fielding a female roster, but that’s not the case. Instead, most fans, including GC participants, are upset that Disguised favored content creators over professional players for his team.
GC Valorant player Irene took it to Twitter and explained why it’s an issue. According to her, pro players looking to create a career in Valorant could benefit from this opportunity, whereas content creators have nothing to gain.
“They’re making content. That is not what GC is. The attention they will receive is massive, but the GC they are showing is not a competitive one, and we already have trouble being taken seriously,” Irene said.
Disguised Toast and Irene have now talked it all out after the former took it to Twitter to clear the air. The streamer and team owner explained that the Disguised GC roster would be based on the content approach, as he couldn’t research players and the ecosystem well enough to make a big investment.
In any case, it’s great that popular streamers are now competing in GC, which would hopefully rope in more viewers and get the female Valorant scene the attention it deserves.
