100 Thieves Valorant roster with Joshua “steel” Nissan, Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella, and Ethan “Ethan” Arnold named their best international teams.

100 Thieves Valorant rosters top teams outside of North America
100 Thieves’ in-game leader chose Korean team Vision Strikers noting that “everyone talks about them.”
Vision Strikers have dominated the VCT Korean region since the start of the competitive Valorant scene. They even had a historic 104 pro-match win streak that ended during VCT KR Stage 2 Challengers.
Vision Strikers will be competing in the VCT Korea Stage 3 Challengers Playoffs.
Ethan quickly responded nominating Team Liquid followed by Acend.
Team Liquid has proven itself to be one of the region’s best teams after representing Europe in the VCT Stage 2 Masters Reykjavik.
Acend burst into the Valorant pro scene by winning VCT EU Stage 1 Masters after defeating Team Heretics 3-2.
Team Liquid qualified for the upcoming VCT EMEA Stage 3 Challengers Playoffs and will look to advance to VCT Stage 3 Masters Berlin.
100 Thieves’ controller main added his two cents by naming Vision Strikers and Fnatic.
Fnatic is another highly accomplished team in the European region. They were the runners-up of the VCT Stage 2 Masters Reykjavik. Fnatic is the only team that wasn’t able to qualify into their regional VCT EMEA Stage 3 Challengers Playoffs.
Nitr0 also commended Ascend as the best team in Europe. Similar to Team Liquid, Acend will also compete in the VCT EMEA Stage 3 Challengers Playoffs.

The team’s captain playfully answered by saying, “the thing is all of those teams are not in North America so they’re just naturally going to be worse than us. So, why would we watch a team that’s worse than us?”
100 Thieves will compete in the upcoming VCT NA Stage 3 Challengers Playoffs where the top three teams will advance to VCT Stage 3 Masters Berlin. They will play their opening match on August 12, 2021, at 5:30 a.m. GMT+8.
