Aaron “b0i” Thao has replaced Joshua “steel” Nissan in the starting lineup for 100 Thieves’ Valorant squad.
“b0i has been working with the team for several months as a sub and we’re excited to see what he can bring to the team,” the team posted Monday on Twitter.
100 Thieves moved steel to a substitute position, but not the primary substitute role. The team said that spot will be occupied by 16-year-old Johann “seven” Hernandez for the remainder of 2021.
After the announcement, steel tweeted that he is “not even close” to being done with the professional Valorant scene.
A 24-year-old American, b0i first joined 100 Thieves in July. The rest of the active roster includes Spencer “Hiko” Martin, Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella, Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk and Ethan “Ethan” Arnold.
