100 Thieves were going perfectly when it came to Valorant esports. But earlier this year, they endured a big loss, dropping them from VCT Reykjavik. Afterwards, important roster changes came quickly, with BabyJ and ec1s being let go. But one of the most important 100 Thieves statements was just released: Hiko is retiring from professional Valorant.
