Update (June 25, 4:00 PM EST) – 100 Thieves have officially revealed their full competitive Valorant roster, which includes four players that have transferred over from Team Highground.

As expected, Jaden ‘Vegas’ James, the fifth player on Team Highground, did not make the cut, as only four could join the 100T roster since Spencer ‘Hiko’ Martin already had a spot.

100 THIEVES COMPETITIVE VALORANT TEAM:

  • Spencer ‘Hiko’ Martin
  • Zachary ‘Venerted’ Roach
  • Keane ‘Valliate’ Alonso
  • Diondre ‘YaBoiDre’ Bond
  • Alfred ‘Pride’ Choi

Original Story:

100 Thieves signaled their intentions to build a Valorant squad when they entered the scene by acquiring Counter-Strike veteran Spencer ‘Hiko‘ Martin on June 4th to head up a team they would go on to build around him. That team looks like it could very well be Highground – a roster that has shown some promise in open online cups.

Sources close to the players informed Dexerto that they are currently in talks with the organisation, and that those talks are at an advanced stage.

However, given that the team is comprised of five players already, one of the up-and-coming names was going to be surplus to requirements.

Jaden ‘Vegas’ James, 18, looks likely to be the player that will not be making the move with his soon-to-be former colleagues.

The same sources say this is unrelated to his skill or fit within the team, but rather that Martin will likely fill a lot of the roles that he currently plays.
