100 Thieves have officially announced the remaining two members for their professional Valorant team. Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk and Quan “Dicey” Tran, previously of Immortals, have now joined 100 Thieves as their final two members. They join veterans Spencer “Hiko” Martin, Nick “Nirt0” Cannella, and Josh “Steel” Nissan. There has been speculation as to who might be joining the team after they signed Steel at the beginning of September. However, with the team mostly comprised of veteran CS:GO talent, younger talent was expected to arrive. Asuna and Dicey are only 17 years old, which fits the young talent that 100 Thieves was looking for.
With the Valorant roster now complete, 100 Thieves will look to the next round of tournaments to compete in. Valorant recently announced First Strike, which will serve as a tournament that any player could qualify for. The competition will be regional, with teams competing against the best of the best. The first round of qualifiers is set to start sometime this month with regional finals happening sometime in December.
100 Thieves look to dominate
100 Thieves hasn’t competed in a Valorant tournament since the FaZe Clan Invitational back in early August. Shortly after their 13th/16th place finish, the team released all their players besides Hiko. Keane “Valliate” Alonso and Diondre “YaBoiDre” Bond currently play for Team Highground, while Zachary “Venerated” Roach was signed to Luminosity Gaming. Alfred “Pride” Choi is the only member of the former 100 Thieves squad to not find a new team.

With the upcoming First Strike tournaments, as well as smaller tournaments, 100 Thieves is looking to dominate the scene. The team hasn’t been able to play together in an official match, but it has been crushing it in public matches. Hopefully, the amount of money it has spent on this roster will pay off with trophies in the end.
