Famed for his IGL abilities, steel recently announced a move from CS:GO to Valorant just days ago. His addition to the 100T roster quashes speculation of a potential move to T1 amid their recent roster turmoil.
100 Thieves initially entered competition with a lineup of ex-PUBG players plus Hiko . After failing to secure notable finishes in the T1xNSG Showdown, PAX Invitational, and FaZe Clan Invitational, the organization released all players with the exception of Hiko. Shortly after, 100T welcomed nitr0 , marking the start of their roster rebuild.
The addition of steel still leaves the 100T roster short two players, but a lull in major North American tournaments makes for fortunate timing.
