The seasoned CS:GO veteran is still very much ready to compete.
100 Thieves Sign Hiko
100 Thieves CEO Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag had big news for the gaming community this Thursday.
Along with announcing their entrance into Valorant, the team announced their first member and captain, Spencer “Hiko” Martin. At age 30, Hiko is a seasoned CS:GO veteran who has more than enough game and stage experience. Martin also announced that with his move to Riot Games’ new FPS, he was finally retiring from CS:GO.
Hiko leaves behind quite the legacy, leaving behind nearly a decade of play. Playing for orgs like Cloud9 and Team Liquid, Spencer was known as one of North America’s top talents. Hopefully, he’ll be able to bolster his track record with the start of a new chapter.
Martin plans to move to Los Angeles soon, but doesn’t know exactly when due to ongoing COVID-19 situations. Similar to their CS:GO, League of Legends and Fortnite players, 100T wants as many people as possible near team headquarters. Doing so would make forming the rest of the Valorant roster easier for the org and the new team captain.
100 Thieves certainly isn’t the first team to jump into Valorant’s esports scene, as other organizations such as T1 and TSM have rosters of their own. Hiko has said “I want to win, I will do whatever it takes to win… My goal with 100 Thieves is to bring as many championships and as many trophies as I can to this organization.”
The rest of their roster is currently unknown, but many wait in suspense to see what’s next. Hiko has hinted that he has a lot of input/influence on who will fill out their roster. Keep an eye on his stream to see who he is succeeding with; only time will tell who will accompany Hiko on this journey though.
