Excited to announce the final two members of 100 Thieves VALORANT: Asuna & Dicey!— 100 Thieves (@100Thieves) October 2, 2020
With that, we have rounded out our competitive VALORANT roster:@Hiko@JoshNissan@nitr0@Asunaa@diceyzx
Time to grind! 💪 #100Tpic.twitter.com/vjJbbWh4c5
The original roster, which consisted of players with a background as PUBG pros like Alfred "Pride" Choi and CS:GO superstar Spencer "Hiko" Martin, failed to meet expectations, consistently underperforming at big tournaments including most of the Ignition Series, finishing dead last in the PAX Arena and FaZe Clan Invitationals.
After deciding to rebuild its entire squad around Hiko by dropping everyone else, 100T signed the likes of Nicholas "Nitr0" Cannella and Joshua "Steel" Nissan, two highly sought players transitioning from CS:GO to Valorant.

The signings of both Asuna and Dicey means 100 Thieves now will most likely look to compete in Riot's first organised Valorant competition: First Strike, something Hiko alluded to previously, citing the lack of a complete roster as the only thing holding the org back from fully committing to the tournament.
First Strike is set to start in "the second half of October" with Regionals being played in December. We'll keep you updated when Riot releases new information regarding the format and proper start times.
