Andbox puts its stamp on a competitive roster for the first time with the introduction of its VALORANT Team, coached by Matt “Warden” Dickens and Assistant Coach Gorden “g0g1” Prosic. Following the excitement around the new Riot Games title, there was no better time for NYC’s premier esports organization to be front and center on the jerseys, content, and marketing behind a promising professional esports team. Following only two weeks of playing together, the Andbox VALORANT team won the Renegades x Nerd Street Gamers $10K Invitational, garnering a ton of notoriety in the VALORANT scene. The team went from previously unranked, to ranked 6th NA by TheSpike.gg—an early sign of the greatness that is yet to come.
Brad “ANDROID” Fodor is an ex-CSGO professional who has played for numerous prominent esports organizations including Envy and Complexity. The Canadian left the CSGO scene to pursue a career in VALORANT and is one of the most promising fraggers early in the scene. The Duelist main primarily plays Reyna and Phoenix, while sometimes hopping on Raze on certain maps, but don’t count this player out on any character capable of gaining the upper-hand in gunbattles.
Previously playing CSGO for Ghost Gaming, Sebastian “Seb” Bucki is the veteran presence on the team. His god-tier game sense designates him as the utility player on the team, typically seen on the Cypher. He hasn’t been playing VALORANT for long, but his chemistry with Yay and ANDROID instantly earned him a spot on the team. After winning the Renegades x Nerd Street Gamers 10K Invitational, Seb and the team aren’t looking back.
Jake “POACH” Brumleve is one of the biggest names in esports, having torn through the competitive Fortnite scene and shocked the world once he announced his retirement to pursue a career in VALORANT. A staple on Team Liquid for years, POACH now serves as Andbox VALORANT’s in-game leader—a role he has not had a ton of experience in but that proved successful at the Renegades x Nerd Street Gamers Invitational, where the team managed to take home the winning prize. The youngest player on the team, POACH has one of the best mechanics in the scene and should be looked upon to take this scene by storm as well.
Jaccob “Yay” Whiteaker is also an ex-CSGO professional who has played for organizations like eUnited, Complexity, and many more. Previously a teammate of ANDROID’s on complexity, Yay hails from Katy, Texas, near Houston, and is extremely excited about competing in a growing game like VALORANT. Ranking just below b0i at #15 in Riot’s NA VALORANT ranking, Yay is a competent duelist who is also the team’s designed “opper.” His experience provides an invaluable benefit for the younger guns on the roster.
Former CSGO Aaron “b0i” Thao has been finding success in the pro VALORANT scene, even being named ranked #14 by Riot’s North American VALORANT player rankings. The team’s go-to Omen player mixes the perfect combination of fraggability with game sense, making the edgy utility agent a great fit for him. Before CSGO, b0i also played League of Legends competitively but prefers the action of first-person shooters. The youngest of four siblings, b0i is even referred to by his nickname by his family.
