100 Thieves has just revealed its full Valorant roster
100 Thieves finalized its official Valorant on October 2 with the signing of former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competitor Peter "Asuna" Mazuryk and 17-year-old Valorant pro Quan "dicey" Tran.
The duo joins three of CSGO's most experienced players, including former Team Liquid stars Spencer "Hiko" Martin and Nick "nitr0" Cannella and former Chaos Esports Club's Joshua "steel" Nissan. 100 Thieves now has a complete Valorant roster ready for North American competition.
In the interim, 100 Thieves took its time to evaluate potential talent, waiting out the majority of other major organizations' quick signings while slowly accruing important talent themselves. But despite its "wait-and-see" approach, the 100T squad has come out with a roster that could make an impact immediately.

100 Thieves' slow Valorant strategy worked great in talent rush
The organization officially signed Hiko early on in Valorant's lifecycle on June 4th, adding nitr0 soon after CSGO's July player break. steel, still banned from CSGO's Major tournaments due to an incident in 2015, left Chaos on September 5 before announcing that he, too, had joined 100 Thieves. Both dicey and Asuna previously spent time as teammates on Immortal's Valorant roster before leaving only 12 days after joining the roster.

The three veteran players now have two budding stars to work with heading into Valorant's fall tournament season. While the organization hasn't set an official date for the roster's debut, there are plenty of open Valorant events for 100 Thieves to enter and test their new roster. But they have some catching up to do, especially when it comes to the likes of other major esports organizations. This includes Valorant's first Major, First Strike.
Valorant's top teams have already established themselves in Riot's growing esports scene around the shooter. Rosters from G2 Esports, Team SoloMid, and Sentinals have already made a huge impact in Valorant's competitive tournaments. Those rosters have pocketed over $220,000 in prize money in the three months since Valorant competitions began. Those teams are also made up of former CSGO players, so it's not a surprise that their skills have translated well to Riot's CSGO-like FPS.
