Ludwig Ahgren’s Moist Esports is now entering Valorant Game Changers with a female roster of its own. 

Streamers are entering the esport with all guns blazing in 2023, signing some of the top players in the scene. Refreshingly, these streamers aren’t entirely focused on male esports but are using their money to help bolster the less recognized side of female Valorant. Recently, Disguised had a short run in VCT GC, and now Ludwig is entering the picture with his own roster.

The mogul himself announced he’s taking CLG Red, the female Valorant team, under his wing. The Valorant lineup was let go of by CLG as part of the layoffs that came after NRG’s acquisition.

NRG is keeping most of the CLG staff but has decided to cut out the female Valorant and CSGO rosters. Unfortunately, CLG Red was already in the middle of playing VCT GC and had already qualified for the main event. The layoffs came right in the middle of their pro journey, which led the CLG Red’s Emily to reach out the Ludwig and discuss the possibility of having a banner to play under. 

Fortunately, Ludwig was able to take over the squad, but only for a month. According to the mogul, Moist Esports doesn’t have enough funds to commit to a full-time female Valorant roster, but the timing was right for this one, and he couldn’t say no. 

“We will try to pay the salaries for this tournament, and we will try to support you throughout this tournament and hopefully find you a home long-term,” Ludwig said. 

The streamer also joked about spending too much money from the Moist Esports’ budget, but he couldn’t help it when CLG Red reached out. So now, Moist will sponsor the former CLG Red for a month while they play the main event at Game Changers as Moist MXM.
