YaBoiDre previously competed with 100 Thieves before the roster was disbanded in August. He was previously a PUBG player before switching to VALORANT. Moose is a former CS:GO player who played with Team Envy, Triumph, and eUnited. Many fans expected moose and YaBoiDre to become permanent members of the roster. Both players have helped the team succeed and are valuable assets.

Moose and YaBoiDre joined Luminosity as stand-ins in January.  They joined in time for the NSG x Complexity Invitational and the NSG Winter Championship. Luminosity performed well in both events securing third place at the Invitational and winning the Winter Championship. They defeated Sentinels in a tough five-game series and beat Team Envy to secure their spot in Challengers Two.

Luminosity continued to dominate during VALORANT Champions Tour Stage 1: Challengers One event. They had little trouble qualifying for the event and finished the Challengers One event in third place. This guaranteed their spot in VCT Challengers Two, but they could not secure a place in the first Masters event yet.

But Luminosity Gaming will compete in the Challengers Three main event on March 4th for another chance to make it to the first Masters event. The top four teams will join Sentinels, Team Envy, Immortals, and XSET in the NA Masters.
