SINGAPORE – Team SMG (Still Moving Under Gunfire) revealed their roster for the newly released first person shoot (FPS) game, Valorant by Riot Games.

The all-Singaporean roster, previously known as GMCC, comprises veterans who had played professionally in FPS game Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and came out tops in TheGym MY/SG Final Countdown : Causeway Cup, CSGO2Asia Grassroots Cup and GeForce Cup Pacific Singapore Qualifier. The team’s recent transit into Valorant saw them dominating the Valorant community tournaments, including the BRSG Valorant Community Series and the Stay Home Challenge Breaker.

Like these boys, I started gaming as a past time. But this past time evolved into my passion and global vision in esports, and I strive to nurture home-grown talent in this burgeoning esports scene.”
