Evil Geniuses Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player Vincent “Brehze” Cayonte and former Ninjas in Pajama in-game leader Adam “ec1s” Eccles were two players who took the tests for the VALORANT list of 100 Thieves have shared several sources Upcomer and VLR.gg. with on Friday.
Neither player has signed for the team, but 100 Thieves have put a significant effort into signing a leader in the game during the off-season. Before the VALORANT Champions Tour kicks off next year, 100 Thieves will need to sign two more players to complete their roster.
Former Liquid and Ninjas in Pajamas player ec1s lives in the UK. If the organization signed him, he would likely move to the United States to play alongside the rest of the team. Recently, however, he has been practicing high pinged the page.
Ec1s has an excellent story in VALORANT. He mostly played for Team Liquid, previously Fish123, for about six months prior to his bench press. Since then, the Briton has played among ninjas in pajamas at the VCT European Stage 3 Challengers 2 Qualifier and the second Red Bull Home Ground.
Ec1s was released a few days ago along with the rest of the ninjas on the pajamas roster, he announced on Twitter.
My contract with @NIP has officially expired and now I’m a free agent.
Thanks to all players and staff for the memories. I wish them all the best!
Exciting times are ahead, let’s see what happens in 2022👀

Brehze, on the other hand, played CS: GO internationally and regionally at the highest level. He has been playing under Evil Geniuses since 2019.
100 Thieves don’t expect any further losses in the roster, however. After the disappointing third place in the VCT Last Chance Qualifier in November, 100 Thieves have sacked their head coach Hector “FrosT” Rosario. 100 Thieves later underwent a major makeover, with Nick “nitr0” Cannella being the first to consider a possible move back to CS: GO reported from Upcomer on November 12th
The team also fired former analyst Aaron “b0i” Thao, who had joined the roster during the Last Chance Qualifier. This left 100 Thieves in the core squad of Spencer “Hiko” Martin, Ethan “Ethan” Arnold and Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk, while substitute Johann “seven” Hernandez stayed on the bench.
