Andbox Andbox North America Rank #5 have announced the signing of Jake " Poach " Brumleve from Team Liquid, bringing the team's Valorant roster up to four players following the initial signing of three former professional Counter-Strike players.
Since early April, Poach has previously represented Team Liquid as a streamer after stepping down from the organization's Fortnite squad following two years of competitive play. During his time in Valorant, he's occasionally played for a handful of teams, even once standing in for Cloud9 during the T1 x NSG Showdown.
The former Fortnite professional has been playing with the newly-formed Andbox since late September, officially debuting in the Nerd Street Gamers September Monthly alongside former Envy star Adam " aKis " Kisseberth. After a rocky start in the Group Stage, the squad qualified out of their group, but were quickly shut out by the Renegades in a 2-0 series.
Andbox's follow-up appearance in the recent Renegades x NSG Invitational proved significantly more fruitful to the up-and-coming team, now fielding Aaron " b0i " Thao as the team's fifth. Sporting an undefeated run, backed by series wins against Cloud9 and the surprising new Immortals roster, Andbox cemented themselves as one of the strongest challengers in the NA scene leading up to Riot's recently-announced First Strike event.
