The 100 Thieves Valorant roster has been stuck on the sidelines after the organization decided to rebuild its team with decorated North American CS:GO pros Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella.
In the process of completing the new roster, 100 Thieves’ team captain Spencer “Hiko” Martin revealed that one of the players they’ve been trying out for the team is massively popular streamer Tyler “Ninja” Blevins.
After 100 Thieves’ decision to drop its initial roster consisting of ex-PUBG pros, the organization is now in the process of finding three talented individuals to play alongside Hiko and nitr0.
Hiko has yet to disclose who else is joining 100 Thieves’ scrimmage tryouts, but Ninja has been participating in those practice matches. Hiko even name-dropped Gen.G Esports’ Anthony “gMd” Guimond as one of the players they were going up against during a practice session.
After Mixer was shut down, Ninja has just been consistently grinding on Valorant’s ranked matches where he linked up with Hiko while trying to improve as a player. The popular Fortnite star has streamed on YouTube and Twitch, but he has been focused on improving his Valorant skills in hopes of joining a pro team.
According to Hiko, there could be an announcement about Ninja and 100 Thieves this coming weekend, if the two weren’t actually trolling their viewers.
