Katsumi leaves VALORANT Game Changers to pursue mixed-roster Challengers qualification

One of the most accomplished players from the North American VALORANT Game Changers circuit, Katja “katsumi” Pfahnl, announced on Oct. 15 that she will no longer be competing in the scene, instead choosing to focus on qualifying for Challengers in 2024 alongside a currently unnamed, mixed-gender roster. 

“It’s not something I want to make a big deal of, but I’m not going to be playing in Game Changers moving forward, and I have no plans to return at this time. I am going to continue competing, but I am changing course away from GC,” katsumi wrote on Twitter. “I’ve always seen Game Changers as a temporary step and not an end goal. I’ve maintained through my entire career that if I ever believed I wasn’t capable of becoming a top player outside of GC – I would quit competing entirely and move on to something else in my life.”
