On December 15, 2021 at around 6:00 PM GMT+8, Japanese organization Crazy Raccoon have announced the departure of Byeon “Munchkin” Sang-beom from their active VALORANT roster.

Competitive History

Munchkin was an Overwatch player before he switched to VALORANT full time. In the early days of the Korean pro scene, he was a member of Cloud9 Korea and played alongside names such as Yu “BuZz” Byung-chul, Lee “Hate” Ye-hun, and Son “xeta” Seon-ho. Once Riot’s ruling of sister teams forced the squad to disband, Munchkin and fellow C9K teammate Park “Bazzi” Jun-ki joined Crazy Raccoon. He and the team found a lot of success in the Japanese VCT events. The team won Masters 1 and Challengers Stage 2 beating rival team Absolute JUPITER (now known as ZETA DIVISION) both times.

However, international success did not follow. The team entered Masters Reykjavik and bowed out without a single game win. In the next Challenger Stage, the team made it to the Grand Final before ultimately falling to ZETA DIVISION. In Masters Berlin, CR accomplished the first series win for Japan in the international stage, but were unable to make it past the group stage.

The final tournament Munchkin would play at with the team was VALORANT Champions. Again, Crazy Raccoon failed to make it past the group stage. Unlike in Masters Berlin, the team would also be unable to get a single series win.

Roster Update

With Munchkin’s departure, Crazy Raccoon’s active VALORANT roster consists of:
