"Spanning two days of competition, the Complexity Gaming Paradox Invitational powered by Lenovo Legion features eight of the top women and non-binary Valorant squads from the Americas as they face off in a double-elimination bracket. Participants include fan-favorites from the Valorant Game Changers season, including Complexity's GX3 – the organization's female-identifying and non-binary roster – Evil Geniuses, CLG Red, KARMA, Leviatan, Akave Girls, Velaris, and Hamboigas. The Complexity Gaming Paradox Invitational powered by Lenovo Legion is one of many actionable steps Complexity is taking toward breaking down barriers in gaming and empowering future generations of gamers. With a creative and competitive roster that's 50 percent women, the organization continues to be an ambassador for diversity and inclusivity within esports."

"Complexity has a longstanding record of supporting underrepresented gamers with half of their creator roster identifying as women," said Justin Kenna, CEO, GameSquare. "By empowering diverse voices and providing opportunities for gamers of all backgrounds, we're creating a more equitable and sustainable future for esports."

"Competitions like these help provide more opportunities for marginalized genders for increased visibility and awareness," said Alice "Alimonstr" Lew, Team Manager, Complexity GX3. "Our goal is to normalize our presence in this space to help eliminate toxicity. We belong, and we're here to stay."
