100 Thieves

Threaded Linear

So, in Stage 2 Playoffs, 100T sadly went out against Sen/Envy, but they werent stomped, at all, which means that it definitely could've just been a bad day, and that 100T still has a lot of potential. Obviously, no excuses, bc they have to be consistent to be the NA representatives, which they werent on that day. as a 100T fan, i truly believe that 100T can make it to berlin and Champions, and maybe even surpass Sentinels.

BUT, and i say BUT, because this is the silver lining that has to happen, and which most people dont think about, the silver lining is that they HAVE to adapt to the meta. Specifically Nitro, i dont think steel should be blamed too much for their losses. they just failed to close it out against envy which were really close matches. but the reason why i say nitro, is think about it like this: if nitro played astra and actually took the time to grind with her in ranked and become better with her, then they could've won haven and even bind, if they showed up. nitro still playing omen is a huge downfall, omen just isnt in the meta anymore.

all in all, i think that 100T has a huge chance to do great in Stage 3, provided that they 1. stay on top of the meta and 2. have consistent performances and dont have 'bad days' like they did against sentinels and then failing to close it out against envy

What you said is true and well put but I don't think they can surpass Sentinels. Not till they have Hiko, the baiter, and steel the toxic igl(worst ever) on team.

why do you think hiko and steel are the problems? Performance wise, they're not too bad at all, and while they could put Hiko on less-baity roles, its pretty obvious that his baiting is intentional and part of their strategy. if it wasnt intentional, and if they werent ok with it, they would change it, but they havent. Also, Hiko doesnt ALWAYS bait. i dont get this tendency to just state that hiko is a full-on baiter who does NOTHING but baiting.

for steel being toxic, wdym? are you talking about his behaviour on his streams when he plays ranked? that is completely different and separate from him playing with his teammates in a professional setting. its pretty obvious that they're all good friends outside of the game lmao.

Steel acts like he knows stuff but he doesnt(and this is coming from a 100T fan when they used to play very good with dicey). He honestly should go back to cs. He is atleast good at it than valorant.

what? you're just talking out of your ass lmao... YOU'RE the one who acts like he know stuff but doesnt. steel is one of the best igls in the NA scene. you're not even making an argument, you're just using baseless conjecture to suit your narrative.

how does steel know nothing? and the current lineup with ethan is better than with dicey. Just because they won first strike with dicey doesn't mean that roster was better. And you really dont know anything if you dont know the reason why steel cant go back to CS. (IBP)

"the toxic igl" bro a ranked clip doesnt define the comms in matches. steel has often won them ecos and unfavorable rounds by running unpredictable
strats.

i think you just hate steel and want him to be a bad igl. i feel the same way, but being realistic he is not the biggest problem

yeah, the biggest problem for 100T is being consistent and staying on top of the meta.

Hiko is the problem, because he is good at clutches the team always work for him to be the last to die, meaning he is always baiting and does nothing during the actual round only in the final moments, that's why they lose, hiko is not gonna win every clutch and they have to make him play a little bit more in the early game.

hiko isnt the problem though? you act as if every single round the team revolves around a strat to keep hiko last alive, which is completely false, and all you need to do is watch some VODs to find this out. there are many rounds where hiko isnt the last to die. and also, again, the idea that he is 'ALWAYS' baiting is just factually wrong. you definitely dont watch any 100T matches, he does a LOT during the actual round, he gets a lot of info for his team, makes plays, etc.

everything you said is not a counterpoint to baiting, he could do everything you say and still bait. I'm not saying it's his fault, I think it's the actual team strat to make him the last one standing, since he is a SOVA, it's a good agent on afterplants and also it's hiko who is a god at clutching, that mentality has to change, cause even if he is a god at clutching he won't win more than 50%, since a clutch is a disadvantageous position. Of course not everytime this happens and he is the one left alive, sometimes his team will win without having to depend on his clutches, but they have to get that mentality out of them.

it is a counterpoint to the idea that he ALWAYS baits and does NOTHING BUT baiting. sure, he baits sometimes. so what? thats intentional and obviously part of their strategies. you claim that he 'does nothing during the round' which is factually false. that mentality isnt bad at all, and its not like their 'hiko clutch' mentality costs them multiple rounds. and like you said, they win MOST Of theiir rounds without hiko's clutches. you're acting as if its a major strat, when its not. its a pretty minor gimmick of 100t.

what is your point? 100t knows that hiko clutching isnt the only way to win. You act like since he is not in the killfeed is value is nothing. Sova provides some of the best ultil in game (drone + recon). And lets say if 100t knows that hiko is a great clutch player, would you not want that player alive in clutches. And the sova recon dart regens and it is great if you can maximize the amount of times you can use the dart in a round.

A player benched on his current team should replace a proven winner in hiko??

what "creative players"? first what does that even mean and what standard are you using to measure. And if by "creative players" you mean ultil usage wise, hiko is very good at maximizing the value out of his abilities. Gets plenty of ULT kills and tons of info.

Bro, I don't get the point behind these posts, do you think you're big brain and the saviour of 100T because you say they need to AdApT tO tHe MEta. So many people have said it before, I'm almost certain a team with that much experience knew where they went wrong in those games...

I just think it was a bad day or the strats that they tried didn't work out. I think 100T can be the best roster in NA if they remain consistent like Sen. Steel is actually a big brain and he can win rounds single handedly on some occasions and I find all players to be perfect at their roles and can clutch rounds unlike some NA pros that are just one kill players.

Hopefully they nerf astra enough to stop her from being a must pick. If you can’t win unless you pick an agent, that agent is OP.

If there is a player to be blamed for not being able to adapt its hiko. they threw a comp away because he wasnt aggressive enough for skye. he isnt aggressive enough on any agent lol
