North American organization Andbox has allowed 17-year old VALORANT player Adam “mada” Pampuch to explore other team options while Mohammed “Harmful” Choudhary has signed with the team, multiple sources told Upcomer Dec. 9.
Andbox has continued to rebuild its VALORANT roster going into the 2022 VALORANT Champions Tour, which is set to begin at the start of next year. The organization has three players signed to the starting roster with Harmful set to join Daniel “vice” Kim and Anthony “mummAy” DiPaolo.
Meanwhile, youngster mada has several potential team options, with multiple trials lined up. He will likely join a new team for the upcoming season.
Andbox have been solid performers in the North American VALORANT scene, but have consistently failed to reach the highest level of competition. They are currently ranked as the 32nd best team in the region, according to VLR.gg.
Harmful played for several free agent rosters prior to signing with Andbox. He played with ‘Squirtle Squad’ alongside some other notable players, such as Pittsburgh Knights player Joseph “ban” Seungmin Oh and The Guard player Harrison “psalm” Chang.
Harmful was among the players trialing at The Guard, alongside former TSM player Taylor “Drone” Johnson. The Guard are yet to announce their final two starting members at the time of publication, however.
Most notably, Andbox was home to Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker, for almost a year. The latter half of yay’s tenure on Andbox caught the attention of Envy. He was acquired by the North American team on Aug. 5. Since he joined Envy, yay has cemented himself as one of the best players in VALORANT.
Andbox will compete in the upcoming VCT 2022, which will likely begin at the start of next year. Riot Games, the host of the tournament and developer of VALORANT, is yet to announce the start date.
