Esports organization 100 Thieves has finally announced the final two players to join their Valorant lineup, and it’s none other than former Immortals players Peter ‘Asuna’ Mazuryk and Quan ‘diceyzx’ Tran.
Valorant esports fans should recognize both players, as the pair has previously been competing in tournaments under the Immortals banner. Now, both of them will be taking their talents to 100 Thieves.
Asuna, besides being an obvious Sword Art Online fan, previously played CSGO for Triumph, before he moved over to Valorant with many of his fellow pros.
Diceyzx on the other hand has been playing at a high level in Valorant since apparently day one. Previously holding a spot on Prospects, before being picked up by Immortals, and eventually snagged by 100 Thieves in the end.
Excited to announce the final two members of 100 Thieves VALORANT: Asuna & Dicey!

As we mentioned, both players previously played for Immortals, but were apparently acquired via transfer by 100 Thieves as officially announced by both orgs on October 2.
Before the news broke, 17-year-old diceyzx had been considered by many to be a top player on the Immortals roster before he got traded, and one of the best in the entire Valorant esports scene overall as well.
Dicey hasn’t played professional esports outside of Valorant either, making him one of the few pros (for now at least) who didn’t come over from another game like CSGO or Overwatch. Whether his meteoric rise will continue remains to be seen, but he has plenty of experienced teammates to help him along the way.

Exactly how the newly-minted 100 Thieves squad will perform remains to be seen, but with five players officially announced, we can finally look forward to the whole lineup taking part in tournaments together soon.
People are already referring to this team as “stacked” and it’s easy to see why – with some of the biggest names in professional Valorant included at this stage. But we won’t know anything for sure until we see them all in action together. Hopefully, their play can live up to the hype and make North America a powerhouse region in the early days of esports for Riot’s hit FPS.
