The long-awaited roster reveal of the Spencer “Hiko” Martin-led 100 Thieves Valorant squad has finally arrived. The team announced on Twitter that former Immortals players Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk and Quan “diceyzx” Tran will round out the roster. Along with team captain Hiko, the newly-signed players will be joined by Counter Strike legends Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella and Joshua “steel” Nissa.
Asuna and Dicey come from an Immortals roster that, despite placing consistently in tournaments, wasn’t able to come together to produce anything extremely meaningful. The two young pros will join the 100 Thieves organization nearly two months since releasing the former Highground roster and signing nitr0, and nearly one month since signing steel.
100 Thieves now possess an all-around diverse roster. Hiko and steel are both 30 years of age, while nitr0 is 25 and Asuna is the youngster at age 17. The Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag-led organization is hoping to spice up the veterans’ careers with some fresh young talent, while the veterans also keep the youngsters in check.
Hiko and the 100 Thieves organization has had plenty of time to rebuild in a slow offseason of sorts after such a chaotic and wild first few months of North American Valorant tournaments. The team has had nitr0 signed since August 14, and he still has not donned the 100 thieves red and black in a tournament yet.
It is currently unknown when fans will be able to see this newly made roster compete live, as there are no major tournaments scheduled in North America for the foreseeable future. However, Riot Games recently announced First Strike, which the developer called “the first major Valorant esports tournament… that will crown the first region champions for the game.”
First Strike is set to begin with qualifiers sometime during “the second half of October,” with the regional finals taking place from December 3 to December 6.
