FrosT's leadership and relentless dedication to our team and players over the past year is extremely appreciated. We wish Hector the best in his future endeavors.
FrosT officially began coaching 100 Thieves in 2021, but had been working with them since September 2020 as an analyst, winning First Strike: North America with the team before becoming an official member. Ever since, FrosT's squad had been a presence at the top of the NA VCT and peaked at a top-four Stage 3: Masters Berlin finish.
Despite 100 Thieves' success throughout the first iteration of VCT tournaments, they were unable to secure enough points for direct qualification to Champions. As a result, they competed in NA LCQ for North America's last qualification spot. 100 Thieves started off strong defeating their first two opponents, but losses to both Cloud9 Blue Cloud9 Blue North America Rank #4 and Rise Rise North America Rank #8 eliminated them from the competition with a third-place finish. Consequently, their run in official Riot tournaments for the remainder of the year concluded.
According to the same report that broke FrosT's release, the future of 100 Thieves' roster is uncertain with rumors of Nick "nitr0" Cannella possibly returning to CS:GO. Two spots seem to be opening up on Liquid's CS:GO roster, as reported by Rush B Media, possibly prompting nitr0 to return to his former team and game. Currently, his situation is still undecided.
