Former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS: GO) star Nicholas "nitr0" Cannella has officially switched to Riot Games' Valorant and joined 100 thieves.
nitr0 is best known for his time as a team leader in the game The CS: GO -Cadre of Liquid, which he was part of from early 2015 to August this year. Under his leadership, Liquid became the top ranked CS: GO team in 2019 when they won eight tournaments, including the IEM Grand Slam, which awarded a grand prize of $ 1 million.
Aside from being a great leader in the game, nitr0 is also known to be an excellent all-round player who can play different roles and adapt to the needs of his team.
With this signature, 100 Thieves would like to rebuild its valorant list around nitr0 and his former CS: GO legend Spencer. Hiko ”Martin. The two played together in Team Liquid in 2016 and came second at the ESL One: Cologne 2016 Major.
As part of the renovation, 100 Thieves have released former PUBG pros (PlayerUnknown & # 39; s Battlegrounds) Keane "Valliate" Alonso, Zachary "Venerated" Roach, Diondre "YaBoiDre" Bond and Alfred "Pride" Choi.
Expectations for 100 thieves were high after he died in early June Hiko had contracted and surrounded him with the former PUBG professionals . The roster did not develop chemistry together, however, and hit rock bottom in three of the four tournaments they competed in.
One of the obvious reasons the original 100 Thieves Valorant roster went broke was because Hiko wasn't allowed to say who will join him on the team despite being the team captain.
"100 thieves made the decision," revealed Hiko in one of his streams. "I know they said I was going to be the team captain, but [they] made the call." nitr0 and Hiko have the freedom to build the team they want.
100 thieves have a long way to go if the organization is to make waves in a stacked North American valorant scene. Despite two stars in nitr0 and Hiko, 100 thieves in Sentinels, FaZe Clan and T1 have to face other star-studded teams.
