Andbox Andbox North America Rank #7 have announced the signing of Christopher "Rebo" Heindel, bringing the New York-based organization's roster back to five players, following the benching of Jake "Poach" Brumleve in early February.
A tough opponent that we're glad to now have on our side. Welcome @ReboVAL to New York's VALORANT team.
Rebo is best known for his role as the in-game leader of Moon Raccoons Moon Raccoons Inactive . Moon Raccoons made huge strides in the North American scene as an un-sponsored team, placing 2nd in the NSG October Monthly, 4th in the RNG x NSG Invitational, as well as reaching the playoffs of the First Strike UMG Closed Qualifier.
Following the dissolution of Moon Raccoons in early January, Rebo initially intended on rebuilding the roster, however those plans seem to have come to a close with him joining Andbox full-time. The signing leaves Zander "FIEND" Bates as the only player from the final MR roster to not be signed to an organization.
After their explosive debut in multiple NSG events, Andbox have been struggling to break into the premier tier of Valorant, taking heavy losses to Sentinels, Envy, and most recently 100 Thieves. Having been denied a spot in the second VCT Challengers event by 100T, Andbox will likely see a return in the third VCT Challengers qualifier, which will take place in late February.
