100 Thieves managed to gain a lot of big wins with its previous iteration, landing a top-4 finish at VCT Stage 3: Masters Berlin, 1st place at VCT Stage 2: Challengers 1, and most notably, the team won First Strike North America.
Unfortunately, however, the team failed to qualify for Valorant Champions. Additionally, the org parted ways with Joshua “steel” Nissan in early December of last year and allowed Nick “nitr0” Cannella to leave in order to pursue CS:GO just one day later.
The future of 100 Thieves was up in the air, but it seems they’ve found their new core members and are ready to participate in the upcoming VCT events.
100 Thieves new Valorant roster
As previously reported by Upcomer, Spencer “Hiko” Martin, Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk, and Ethan “Ethan” Arnold will be joined by Adam “ec1s” Eccles and Hunter “BabyJ” Schline to round out the team’s five-man roster.
Former Halo pro, BabyJ, comes off of a four-month-long stint with FaZe Clan wherein the team managed to land a top-6 finish at the Champions Tour North America Stage 3: Challengers Playoffs before bowing out in last place at the Last Chance Qualifier two months later. That loss meant the team would not get a chance to play at Valorant Champions.
Also joining 100 Thieves is ec1s, former IGL for Ninjas in Pyjamas before the organisation disbanded their roster and opened a new division in Brazil. With ec1s, NIP achieved 2nd place at Red Bull Home Ground and 3rd at the BLAST Twitch Invitational.
100 Thieves Valorant roster is now:
- Adam “ec1s” Eccles
- Hunter “BabyJ” Schline
- Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk
- Ethan “Ethan” Arnold
- Spencer “Hiko” Martin
- Jovanni “Jovi” Vera (Coach)
100 Thieves’ new squad will make their official debut on 27th January at the first open qualifiers for NA VCT in 2022.
