It’s been a rough couple of months for the North American Valorant scene, with orgs such as 100 Thieves and The Guard laying off dozens of employees, and FaZe Clan in the midst of financial woes. But in the midst of all this, Disguised Toast’s Game Changers team provided a much needed comedic relief.
After failing to qualify for the main event on April 5, Disguised Toast ‘dropped’ his entire Valorant Game Changers team in a massive troll on rival esports orgs. The team, which was made up of some of the most popular female streamers in the scene, was never meant to be a serious team; it was simply a way to bring attention to the NA Valorant scene.
Tweeting out that the entire Game Changers team has been let go due to “role issues and financial hardships,” Disguised Toast openly took a page out of Cloud9’s book after dropping Yay. He even made a stray jab at xQc and the failed signing of Turtle Troops, saying, “you don’t make MSI, that contract I was gonna offer you? I’m pulling it, I’m ghosting you guys.”
All of this was done in jest, and the players were in on the joke. With QuaterJade responding, “ I received $0 – is DSG ok??” None of the players were paid by the way, that was the deal in the making of the team.
Disguised Toast’s Game Changers team provided a much needed comedic relief in the midst of a turbulent stretch for many North American esports orgs. And although the team didn’t make it to the main event, they certainly achieved their goal of bringing attention to the NA Valorant scene.
