The organisation also field a top male Valorant team, the all-Swedish roster is considered one of the best in Europe, and their Fortnite and Rocket League teams are also well-regarded.

- Yağmur "Smurfette" Gündüz

Riot Games has put female representation in Valorant esports as a primary concern; the developer-supported tournaments have encouraged the likes of Cloud9, TSM, and Complexity to all field female teams and they also recently launched a program to train women casters.
"When we started looking for an organisation to join we wanted somewhere that took us and our development as competitors seriously," commented Cinnamon at the announcement. "Guild gave us total reassurance on that, and that we would be able to create a legacy here. We are so excited about Guild’s commitment not just to us but to the future of the Valorant esports scene and plans to inspire more and more gamers to join it through their Academy."
Kal Hourd, CEO at Guild Esports said: “Since we launched our mission has been simple - identify the most exciting talent in Esports and bring them into our organisation to give them everything they need to fulfil their potential. Guild X is the definition of that and we see in them all the attributes to make them a force as not just the best all-female team on the scene, but the best team, period."
