Team Originem is one of the most dominant female CS:GO teams in existence. Originally made up of European players, Team Originem has a history of winning all-female tournaments. They have recently managed to win two separate tournaments, Galaxy Racer Female Invitational and DreamHack Showdown Summer 2020: Europe. 

XSET did take notes of Team Originem’s success and wasted no time to acquire them. Signing all-female rosters are now becoming a trend among major Esports organizations. As an example, Cloud 9 announced their all-female VALORANT team just a few weeks ago. Despite having two separate male VALORANT teams, Cloud 9 didn’t miss the opportunity to expand further into the game.
