North American esports organization 100 Thieves have officially signed Adam “ec1s” Eccles and Hunter “BabyJ” Schline to complete its Valorant roster for the VCT 2022 season.
100 Thieves sign ec1s and BabyJ, will debut at the VCT NA Challengers 1 open qualifiers 2022
The team held trials for their open roster positions and decided to sign Team Liquid’s former IGL (in-game leader) ec1s and ex-FaZe Clan member BabyJ.
Ec1s was part of the European Valorant squad, fish123, that was signed by Team Liquid in 2020. The 21-year-old British player most recently played for Ninjas in Pajamas at the end of 2021 before signing on as 100T’s new IGL.
BabyJ was signed by FaZe Clan after one of their key players, Jimmy “Marved” Nguyen, decided to join Team Envy during the latter part of the VCT 2021 season. FaZe Clan’s Valorant roster is still in its rebuild phase, which has allowed BabyJ to join 100T.

100 Thieves’ 2021 VCT season
The North American squad proved they were a top contender in the region after winning Riot Games’ First Strike event by defeating TSM, 3-1, at the end of 2020.
Following this, the team’s stacked Valorant roster — featuring former Counter-Strike veterans Hiko, Joshua “steel” Nissan, and Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella — hit their stride during Stage 3 of the VCT in 2021. They reached the semifinals of Masters Berlin, but were eliminated by fellow North American squad Team Envy, 0-2.
Right before the start of the VCT NA Last Chance Qualifier, 100T decided to bench Steel for Aaron “b0i” Thao. 100T’s season came to an end after they lost 1-2 to Cloud9 in the lower bracket final.
