In her new team, YuRiHaNa will link up with compatriots Jeong “SeoeuN” Seo-eun and Won “Healing” yoo-jin, both of whom formerly represented Spear Gaming Female. “Yue” and “Aika” were announced as part of the squad in late December 2022 with the aforementioned Korean duo, while “Dori” was first unveiled at the RAGE VALORANT 2022 Autumn event in Japan, during which DRX announced its plan to build a Game Changers team.
“I am making the best Game Changers team in the world right now. [….] The DRX team is looking way better than I expected,” said Tsuneaki “Buddha” Takeda, DRX’s Director of Business Development in an interview with Esports.GG.
With the squad now complete, DRX GC are ready for their debut outing, which will take place in the upcoming VCT Game Changers 2023 season. Although VALORANT Esports has yet to reveal the official schedule and roadmap for the year, many expect East Asia to be a part of the regional play, as seen by the fact that it was provided a path to the 2022 VCT Game Changers Championship, which was the staple event of the Game Changers scene.
