REJECT open VALORANT division with Dep as the first member

by NANA 2020-05-06

REJECT, known previously as All Rejection Gaming (ARG) have announced its entrance into the VALORANT competitive scene. The Japanese organization is active on the domestic scene and has divisions in multiple FPS titles such as Rainbow Six: Siege, Apex Legends, Call of Duty, and PUBG. The last two titles also have additional squads that compete in the tournaments for the mobile versions of these games.

Seeing how promising the VALORANT esports might be like, REJECT decided to sign the first member of it’s newly established squad.

Yuma “Dep” Hisamoto is a player who is actively involved in the professional esports competition in Japan for a few years already. During his time on the Overwatch scene, Hisamoto played for a few organizations, and also took part in the Incheon Qualifier of the Overwatch World Cup 2018 where he represented Japan. Together with the team he finished in 4th place and didn’t advance to the Main Stage of the event. Dep retired from the scene in November of the same year, once his organization, CYCLOPS Athlete Gaming ceased operations in Overwatch.

After that, he pursued his career in PUBG. He played for two more Japanese organizations, SCARZ and Crest Gaming, and during his time in the latter one, he was selected to represent Japan in PUBG Nations Cup 2019 where he placed 11th with the squad. Dep was also awarded for making the most eliminations during the First Phase of the PUBG JAPAN SERIES Season 4.

At the beginning of this year, Hisamoto announced that he is leaving the organization without giving many details about his plans for the future.

As mentioned earlier, Dep is the first member playing for the REJECT VALORANT team. The organization, however, is currently in talks with players who will potentially join Hisamoto to form another Japanese team. REJECT is the second organization in Japan to officially sign VALORANT players after JUPITER, who announced the squad on the same day as the release of the closed beta.

REJECT line up consist of:
