Vaevictis Esports, a Russian esports organisation, has brought on a new team made up entirely of female players.
Vaevictis is taking its new team to the League of Legends Continental League, which was established after the regional CIS Continental League was discontinued.
Vaevictis shared a picture of the newly-signed players in an announcement tweet (via Dot Esports).
The lineup is made up entirely of rookie players who have not previously competed at a professional level. It comes after Vaevictis decided to drop its original roster.
We’re proud to present you Vaevictis eSports roster for LCL Spring 2019!
