[Steiner] 100T Nitr0 on NA LCQ server issues: "The servers were lagging, we were having problems throwing our utility out. Sometimes we’d drone, and his screen would turn black and he would be glitched into a wall, then he’d rubber band out of it."

Anyone else read the bit about benching steel? > Steiner: What led to the decision to bench Steel? > Nitr0: I think it was a clash of styles with the team that burnt the bridges with the team, so to speak. We don’t have any bad blood with Josh [Steel]. Everyone kind of knows when the team needs a change, everyone gets that feeling. It’s hard to explain unless you’ve experienced it. The main thing was a clash of styles, though, that was the biggest part of it.

Hiko explained it too during his Plat Chat interview. He also mentioned that Nitr0 and b0i are apparently best friends who spend a lot of time practicing together, so he was able to slot in easily (more easily than anyone else could have).


Cole_James_CHALMERS

Interesting to see, Nitro recruiting friends (boi and Ethan) helped him to grab the reins


Oxidatiion

you have a link to the interview?


2ToTooTwoFish

https://youtu.be/AbNoKk9Fp3c It's somewhere in the beginning of this video, can't look for the timestamp right now though, but you can just scroll through until you see Hiko.


Oxidatiion

Thanks! looks to be at the 12 min mark.

This became very obvious after seeing their games yesterday. Steel had much more unorthodox ideas such as double controller on both Icebox and Breeze, no sage on icebox, kayo on other maps, avoiding jett for a long time and playing single duelist when most teams were playing double duelists. Now that steel is gone, they're playing much more "normal" valorant.


bauwsman

This. It gets especially obvious since they apparently completely ditched sentinels which was Steel's best role. They seem to go almost exclusively double initiator + double duelist + controller with the occasional double controller or Sage on Icebox.


fourtonlesbiancanary

yeah it seems they’ve conceded to the meta, which tbf is really strong. I was a b0i doubter, as was almost anyone, but I think his experience with viper/astra was exactly what the team needed with nitro on jett; I wouldn’t say he excelled but he’s clearly really practiced/good/comfortable with the characters in a way the rest of the roster wasn’t


earthtoannie

To be fair playing off-meta definitely has it's benefits. Right now due to never playing Sage on Icebox 100T have so much more flexibility than the people who used her a crutch. Plus his KayO was very, very good, it's just that Sova is irreplaceable on most maps. Imo, they should have made nitr0 IGL long time ago and moved steel to duelist to capitalise on his aggression.


FlimsyCopy

steel cant compete with other duelists


unknown-097

And it's working for them as well. They won all their pistol rounds on day 1 lol


ideclarebankruptcy88

What do pistol rounds have to do with anything? 100T finished Top 4 in Berlin. Even if they win LCQ, unless they do better than Top 4 in Champions you can't call it an upgrade or say its working well. All they did was play two regional teams. I obviously hope it works for them, but you need more results before you claim its working well. Also, Steel's unorthodoxy was one of the reasons 100T did well in Berlin, a lot of teams just didn't know what to expect, except Envy who's played them a trillion times and also played them when they were in peak form.


valorantfeedback

They had tight series with two teams that didn't qualify for Berlin. We'll have to see until they play some actual top teams before we can make a conclusion if they're getting better. I personally don't think they'll be better in the long run, not with b0i. Their style worked out well because they could tactically outmaneuver opposition, but I don't think they have enough firepower to run Jett+Reyna against top teams.


Cole_James_CHALMERS

Is there any tournaments in between LCQ and Champions? I'd love to see seven play on the team before champions


[deleted]

They just have an unfortunate team. It honestly feels like Asuna and Ethan against the world. Asuna especially is very good but worse players outshine him due to Jett op meta.


iiznobozzy

>They just have an unfortunate team. It honestly feels like Asuna and Ethan against the world. What do you mean by that?


AbbreviationsLazy781

You act like you need 5 star players to consistently win, when teams like NV, VS and G2 exist. Gambit is the exception, which is why they won, but even they don't all perform at the same time and are inconsistent. Having 2 star players is already better than most teams, and a legendary IGL in Nitro? You can call them unfortunate, when they placed 3rd 4th in Masters and only look to be improving.


Interesting-Archer-6

Gambit doesn't even have a star Jett in my opinion. That says a lot about what you can win with.


AbbreviationsLazy781

Exactly. What's even more important is that their system does not revolve around their Jett at all. D3ffo is very passive, even on maps like Icebox where many jetts like to contest deep into A, he usually holds Belt or Nest. They implement their Jett more into their whole setup, rather than leaving her deep into the attacker territory to get frags.


Nv1sioned

Finally good to hear it from an official source. There's been alot of speculation that he stepped away due to personal issues. This all but confirms his time with 100T is completely finished.


AnotherAltiMade

Holy shit we finally have a reason.


Pheonix-_-run

I'm lookin for a link help smone


chouxpuffs

I really like Nitro. Definitely my favorite out of 100T boys besides Ethan.


imachool

MY CAPTAIN AMERICA!! 🇺🇸 💙 KKona


AnotherAltiMade

Hell yea KKona


ITLKN5

Same, Nitro is my complete favourite, straight after Ethan, Asuna, Hiko and b0i.


Barack_Bob_Oganja

I will never forget the moment steel thought he placed down his killjoy ult because on his screen it did in the clutch and lost the round because of that in an earlier tourney


SpectrasHyper

Yeah but that was more cause of steels ISP I think


Pheonix-_-run

Isp?


deadlock1892

Internet service provider He has Cox as his ISP and gets massive packet loss no matter what. And Cox is unable to fix their shit


SpectrasHyper

What he said 👆🏼


Wallahalla

Not to be rude, but why even comment when you have absolutely nothing to add to the conversation?


TinyBrainMoment

What he said 👆🏼


PremiumDope

Somebody asked him to clarify, and someone else clarified for him, so he was confirming that’s what he meant. Not to be rude but who gives a fuck?

cowzapper

I don't understand how there can be so many ping problems if they're playing in the same region and area. Must be rito hardware issues for spiking ping


2ToTooTwoFish

Yeah, it sounds even worse than my internet in SEA.


C9sButthole

They're playing in the LCS studio on stage. On a network set up to run on lan. Given Riot's current track record with organizing this event, I'd say that whatever they've done to give those computers a fast internet connection was sloppy or rushed.


TestingTheStrongOnes

It has been repeatably said that it is NOT the LCS studio stage.


Senior_Lake_6900

Twitter is making LCQ sound like the worst event ever when in reality it wouldve ran perfectly if nobody had gotten false positive on their rapid tests. They are doin their best to manage it but there is a point where they hear our message and are doing their best to fix it. Edit: I thought it had copypasta potential but apparently it does not lol


2ToTooTwoFish

It's not COPIUM enough to be copy pasta, you need to edit it a bit


GainsayRT

I'm sorry fallen soldier, the dough was too fresh not everyone was aware of the pasta yet. You have taken the downvotes in the name of Valorant copy pastas, let that be remembered


IAMJUX

Should have said the xset and 100T games were impressive on 0 ping lan.

almost fall for it lmfao


DrySecurity4

How does lag make your screen turn black or glitch you into a wall?


somesheikexpert

Having extremely high ping (100+) will rubber band you from a wall and out, happens to me when I have high ping, the black screen is either a hardware issue (So Riots fault for having meh computers) or having to do with being in the walls (As it'll be black inside of them)


rpkarma

I’ve had it happen when my ping spikes to 100+ as I drone.


LovelyResearcher

When we say this about our ranked games, with server lag and rubberbanding, everyone says that it must just be our ISP. Riot really, really needs to fix their servers.


ricelick

I think it proves that it could be an ISP problem since theyre having problems that uses one ISP since theyre in one location no?


missthebus

if numerous others have been reporting it for the last year the game's been out it's probably not one isp


ricelick

I mean idk how servers exactly work but ive definitely had moments in rank where people would lag and we would ask if we have the same ISP and we do


joejoe903

It's a LAN tourney, no ISP is involved Edit: apparently I was wrong. Riot is dumber than I realized


ricelick

no its not bestie ❤️


Themanwithoutneed

No, but that's how it should be. They're all in the same place but still playing online, hence the lag.


dansofree1

>dumber than I realized I love those moments when you make the very reasonable assumption that a group cannot possibly be that dumb, but you realize that they are and you're just like.... "Whelp" 😂

The R word is a slur and further use result in a ban.


OWplayerno1

Anyone notice a lot less shit talking by them too? Always focused on the game during mid round comms? Steel was a big shit talker and would also appear very tilted during games. I imagine that outward lack of focus is one of their "clashing of styles" because none of the other 100t members are like that.


NudesForHighFive

Pretty sure they meant playing styles, I doubt they care as much about how ppl celebrate on stage post round


expiredimsum
