After rebuilding the entire roster, Josh “Steel” Nissan joins the 100 Thieves VALORANT competitive roster. Playing alongside Spencer “Hiko” Martin and Nick “nitr0” Cannella, Steel joins the team as their 3rd player.
Steel is permanently banned from Valve-associated events due to his involvement in the North American match fixing scandal. He previously played Overwatch competitively for Splyce. Since then, he has made his return to Counter-Strike, before retiring from the game once again and head over to VALORANT.
The first match fixing scandal in CSGO was the result of a game played on August 20, 2014 between North iBUYPOWER and NetcodeGuides. Despite iBUYPOWER being the favoured team, they were defeated 16-4.
After the failure of the first 100 Thieves roster, the organisation released the current competitive roster back in August, excluding team captain Hiko in hopes to build a new and improved roster with Nitr0. Both of them had previously been on a team together, playing for Team Liquid alongside alongside s1mple, adreN and EliGE. Though the roster quickly fell apart.
This is definitely a step in the right direction for 100 Thieves. Like what you see? For more VALORANT related news, click here. For even more gaming content, check us out on Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
