Somebody should call an ambulance for North America’s CS:GO scene, because it’s dying. Another young star of North America unveiled his transition into Valorant as Evil Geniuses’ Ethan “Ethan” Arnold announced that he has joined 100 Thieves’ Valorant roster as the replacement for dicey.
Since the beginning of Valorant, we’ve been witnessing many CS:GO professional players retiring from the game and moving their career to Riot Games’ new fps title. Everybody expected these kinds of transitions between the games, but I don’t think anybody guessed that so many big names of CS:GO would change their career paths.
Ethan was playing on Evil Geniuses’ CS:GO roster actively before the alteration, which is why most of the community was surprised when the news first came out. “Although today is Ethan’s final day as a member of EG CSGO,” Evil Geniuses said on Twitter. “We truly do wish him well in the next step of his competitive career.”
However, 100 Thieves’ saved us from curiosity immediately with a tweet. Not long after, the North America-based organization revealed Ethan as its new Valorant player who is going to replace Quan “dicey” Tran. “We’re excited to support his transition and can’t wait to see him compete with the team!,” 100 Thieves said.
Ethan started his career in CS:GO at a young age of 16. From the beginning of his journey, Ethan drew the attention of big teams in North America and competed for their banners during this period. Most recently, the 20-year-old player served Evil Geniuses as a rifler for two years starting in 2019. The young talent hasn’t attended any tournaments in Valorant, so we will figure out what he can bring in for 100 Thieves’ roster.
100 Thieves Valorant squad is now:
- Spencer “Hiko” Martin
- Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella
- Joshua “steel” Nissan
- Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk
- Ethan “Ethan” Arnold
- Hector “FrosT” Rosario (Coach)
- Quan “dicey” Tran (inactive)
