The Misfits announced its revamped Misfits Black VALORANT roster just hours before the start of open qualifiers for VCT NA Game Changers Series 2.
Presley Slandy Anderson and Verina Gozum, who have been on the starting roster since February, are now flanked by Zoe Zoessie Servais, Kxtieoh, and florescent, confirming previous statements by Dot Esports Max Katz. Chris Wong is back on as the team''s head coach, and the team has brought in Gregory Grego McAllen, a former Apex Legends and Overwatch pro with Cloud9, as an assistant

The team has also signed on Korosu as a temporary stand-in for Game Changers Two, as the florescent, who is 15, is unfit to play due to her age. Misfits has also officially signed two previous starters back in February: Chloe Wong and Mady Saye.

The original Misfits Black roster was limited to qualifying for Game Changers Series One, losing in the open qualifier to VersionX. More than a week after that result, Luna LunaFox Ryan was relegated to the bench and began testing for the IGL, duelist, and controller roles. At Knights Arena, both Zoessie (formerly of TSM Female and Polaris) and florescent have recently been trialed under Misfits Black. Finish in second place.
Misfits has not yet entered the mens VALORANT scene, but it has a wide presence across esports, competing in League in the LEC, while also managing two franchises in Overwatch Leagues Florida Mayhem and the Call of Duty Leagues Florida Mutineers. Misfits has not disclosed whether or not they will pursue a VCT partnership with Riot in 2023.
The new Misfits Black roster, which includes Korosu as a fan of florescence, will make their official debut on June 30 in the open qualifiers of the VCT NA Game Changers Series Two, which will begin June 30.
