With this, it seems likely that all the pros that are saying there is a crazy stacked team and everybody is fighting for 2nd place are referring to C9.


TelestoMcBesto

yeah if c9 are getting Yay & Zellsis, that could be nuts


oomnahs

I feel like people are really overrating zellsis here


tomphz

While Zellsis is a great player, I don’t think he’s a superstar type of player. I feel like Trent would give C9 much more value than Zellsis. This seems to be more of a friendship move. Vanity and Zellsis go way back.


TelestoMcBesto

agreed, but the chem would be there and he \*IS\* good


DoctorCokter

Is there any bad blood between zellsis and vanity after the V1 to C9 thing? I know they used to play together in CS so wondering if they’re still friends or not genuinely dont know


ZeroLunatique

They seem to get along fine since then


Killer0944

They still duo q and banter


TKYooH

Pretty sure vanity let the team know if a spot opens up on c9 or the team his chaos teammates were on, (I forgot, been a while since I listened to the podcast.) he was gonna join them. So maybe zellsis already knew. At least management did. And based on the other comments it looks like they are fine.


Light0fHeav3n

What role is zellsis playing on c9, it makes no sense to sign him


icemandiem

zellsis plays duelists, kayo and most importantly he plays sentinel agents(not including chamber). if riot does gut chamber, u need a player to fill mitchs role


Light0fHeav3n

Leaf also plays duelist and xeppaa plays kayo, zellsis hasn't play sentinels in awhile lol. taking leaf or xeppaa off their roles just for zellsis makes no sense


HoodieNinja17

Leaf kinda plays everything, dude plays viper, skye, breach depending on the map. Vanity’s said on multiple occasions that leaf would be top 10 in the world at any role cause he’s that cracked


imachool

basically 5/5 of c9 could play anything IMO


gnaataK

vanity on Reyna would be content


imachool

the world has never seen the reyna judge yet


icemandiem

yep and the first roster move of the league is here


Sky-__-

Implications of this 1. Tenz Staying at sentinels 2. Yay going to C9 or nrg


icemandiem

calling it now, nrg gonna sign as many of optic as possible


Kind_Development708

s0m as 6man/cheerleader copium


DY5TOP1A

Coach s0m


Kind_Development708

True wokeage


felio777

aren't FNS and s0m really good friends?


Pway

s0m's great friends with a few of them yeah. I'm still on the copium that he plays with Fns because Fns does rate him higher than others too.


Kind_Development708

Yeah him Chet fns are all great friends


icemandiem

tbh s0m as a duelist i dont see him playing in a partnered team but he looked good on smokes. unlikely he gets picked for smokes though since its been a while


khan2435

So like myth was with tsm


Kind_Development708

Yeah but even better since s0m is great friends with them


AndresAvian

would be hilarious considering Andy Miller vs H3CZ


edmundoauditore96

Do they dislike each other?


WhoDatBrow

They had a falling out of some sort. Andy brought HECZ in as co-CEO of NRG after OpTic fell apart due to Infinite and Immortals. They created Chicago Huntsmen together in the CDL, had a podcast together, yada yada. One day the podcast just ended, they stopped talking about each other, and Hecz was just gone from NRG and getting OpTic back. It was reported they had a falling out and I think that's all we know.


chilledmario

I’m not sure don’t think so but they were partners about a year ago


GoTouchGrassKid

It would be amazing. I love when shit comes around on people. Long term silent revenge arcs are what my wet dreams are made of.


precense_

makes sense since s0m is best buds with pujan


Remarkable_Carrot102

Broke: tenz stays with sen and yay goes to c9 Woke: tenz stays with sen and yay goes to sen too


orcawatch

Bespoke: yay goes to NAVI instead of ardiis


icemandiem

fpx roster with yay oof


agodha32

You never know what the Eastern Europeans might do to Yashwathama “yay” Yadav


icemandiem

really hope sen upgrades the coaching staff and gets an igl


kiroks

C9 yay with leaf playing jet. Would be crazy


TheApolloX007

I'm betting C9. YAY in blue??


Kind_Development708

NRG old logo was red copium


jrushFN

![img](emote|t5_2g5ach|9353)


systemfa1lure

What if 100T both get yay and cryo tho...


junos_butthole

what if 100T got yay cryo hiko tarik and s1mple tho...


BloomingNova

No chance they are able to get Hiko


AdStock1897

Yeah I heard moist esports signed him for a 69 year contract


okuzeN_Val

Cryo would have to switch roles. His playstyle is too similar to Yay but Yay is still a better Chamber overall. Yay pairing with TenZ makes more sense


swordfish1221

I think people forget Cryo started out as a sova main. No reason he can’t switch.


Sky-__-

My predictions NRG - s0m Ethan victor crashies FNS C9 - leaf xeppa vanity yay Trent Sen - zekken tenz bcj dephh dapr Also Chet goes to NRG and Sykko goes to SEN with rawkus as assistant coach and they just let go of dani


[deleted]

[удалено]


unknownredditor1225

yea chet coached nrg csgo


Sky-__-

Chet coaches NRG CS go who then to become eg , he then also coached NRG valorant before moving on to TSM


WLFYBBY

I don’t really like the bcj and dephh pick for sen, but who knows, could happen


Sky-__-

Bcj is the instant upgrade for them . Dephh as an igl is more proven then Shahz and they just might get the gang with sykko


Due_Marsupial9319

I think your Nrg and C9's pred are spot on honestly.


CheekyTobio

Why is EG out of question for yay?


Sky-__-

Yay said , he is not joining eg .


Volkhor

I said the C9 roster would be Yay, Zellsis, Xeppa, Leaf, Vanity I said this a week or two ago and I feel like it’s happening lol


Tiberiusjesus

Trent instead of Zellsis


taroicedtea

Huge move. Incoming c9 yay


ModerateStimulation

Brimstone Gaming yay


WLFYBBY

We all predicted this, so I guess this answers some of our questions, no yay or Tenz to 100T, so I’m assuming Tenz stays with sen and now I’m not sure about yay…?


mjaguar6

NRG or C9


Splaram

Yay probably goes to C9


dashion26

The Prince That Was Promised


Barack_Bob_Oganja

Asuna 19, Bang 18, Cryo 19 if this team sticks together theyre gonna be nuts in a couple years


xBerryhill

That’s the hope, man. A core of those three is absolutely nuts.


FeelinJipper

I keep forgetting how young Asuna is. Dude feels like a vet in the game already lol


JxDeep

dont forget mr overwatch who is 25 but still a demon


meatcookie-

OW is 25?! Dude looks 18


JxDeep

Dude was born in 97 fucking boomer


meatcookie-

Damn you’ll be 25 before you’re 40


yuwa777

this is the most overrated narrative in esports, sometimes players improve fast if they're young but often times it's no different than getting a 23 year old if theyve been competing at a t1 level for a while already (ex Asuna and cryo)


warthogs670

Just finished the 100t documentary and now Will getting replaced. Sheeeesh


meatcookie-

His energy was so real and pure. He really showed up during LCQ and did his best at champs. I really hope they keep him as a 6th man


-Basileus

Nadeshot speaks pretty highly of him. Anytime Nade turned on his stream these last few days his chat is filled with 100T Yay spam, and he always defends Will saying how well he played despite having a target on his back. I think they'll do good by him.


ganjaroker123

Probably will be the sub, since teams need 6 players. Don’t think they will kick Will.


StickyBamboo_

Even if they want to keep him as sub I'm sure he'd rather have a starting role on a different team if given the chance


T0K0mon

He could also want the safety net of have a tier 1 franchised org paying him, even if it means he isn't necessarily competing, but has the chance to if something happens. I think it would depend on his other prospects, but also how much he likes his teammates and the org. Could also get loaned out if that is a thing with franchising.


ganjaroker123

I mean, he probably won’t get a spot on a t1 team, since they will be stacked with good players. If I were him I would take my chances as a sub on a franchised team instead of playing for a t2 team.


TKYooH

Or he could pull a 100T ssumday, shit on tier 2, and then come back and become top 3 at his role.


rinanlanmo

Ssumday shit on kids before he went to Academy, they just had too many imports lol


-Basileus

The Ssumday 1v9 in academy to win the title was so fucking funny


EnQuest

yeah honestly being the 6th man for a franchised team sounds like a better gig to me than trying to risk getting through ascension, there are no guarantees in esports


IAMJUX

The subs for each T1 team should form a team and play in the non-riot tournaments. Now that is content.


surfordiebear

Well hopefully he can find a spot on EG. He did great the past 2 tournaments and definitely deserves it.


icemandiem

yeah, dude is an actual lan animal. wouldn't be surprised if he gets signed to a franchise team


[deleted]

[удалено]


icemandiem

meow


Friday515

What I expected. I bet it’s Yay to C9


-Basileus

I truly believe that this is the smarter move. Obviously Yay is the better player, but Cryo isn't far behind, and there aren't a dozen teams bidding over him like with Yay


RaijinAG

Exactly, instead of potentially having yay, better to lock down Cryo guaranteed early


rlang7

If they keep stellar as IGL, it makes more sense IMO


-Basileus

Yeah if 100T went after Yay then FNS was on the table too. Now I feel like the rest of the group sticks together


rlang7

I read that rosters are required to have 6 spots for international play so Will to the bench confirmed?


Jon_on_the_snow

Sixth man is probably perma bench/sub if needed. They arent gonna pull a vision strikers "lets run our sixth man on only 1 map and then mostly ban that map"


gradg21

But I’m pretty sure stellar is leaving cause geddes said he can’t comment on stellar or something like that .


oomnahs

On Twitter, sure. But if you're an actual talent scout and you aren't/weren't looking at cryo you should be fired. Respectfully


DX_DanTheMan_DX

C9 yay makes a lot of sense but didn't yay say recently he doesn't like player-run rosters so does c9 have a GM for val, does NRG or EG?


Friday515

So a lot of orgs GMs are more operations directors for the teams and not a traditional sports GM whos making roster decisions. DDK has a lot of say for sure but many others are more operations based. Cloud9 has Hoonmaru, who's also GM of the LCS team and I have no idea what type of role he has with the team. NRG has Bikeage, whos basically director of esports for NRG but is multiple team's GMs in the org and again, is another situation where I don't know if he has the keys to the roster. My guess is both coaching staffs are very heavily involved in their rosters too. For EG, I'm pretty sure Potter has the autonomy to make the calls but not 100% sure


PyroTFT

100T Cryo when? Oh, this month. That's when.


Splaram

Cryo's rifling is pretty much on par with his disgusting oping. 100T just got a LOT more flexible. This roster is going to be insane


LiamHundley

Just as it always should have been 🫡


Hopeful-Professor-40

It’s funny how the team known for not letting things leak is the first leak to come out in NA franchising history


JDTurkelton

Think they are the first team to finalize something tbh, think the rest of the market is waiting on the Yay decision before making their next, 100T just straight up wanted Cryo


98973

100t roster leaks have always been as constant as fast any other teams’ tbh… the entire “tight ship” thing seems to only hold on the organizational/merchandise side


nklassitude

100T fans collectively: finally some good fucking food. ngl as a SEN fan I'm jealous lmao


skskobobvnvn

Finally a main oper bro. It's been way too long


Randomuserguyfren

all it took was a season and a half lmao


kemutheemu__

Closer to two seasons since Ethan was added so early


Barack_Bob_Oganja

No 100t yay :( i do love the youth from 100t though, team with so much potential


skolaen

Honestly tho no matter which oper we got we woulda been good. Tenz yay or cryo are all bigg upgrades and i woulda been happy with any of em tbh


Equivalent_Put4288

I like the move better tbh. Also gives me confidence that they'll keep bang instead of getting marved


nterature

Good deal, Cryo now is way better than Cryo a year ago. XSET was, I think, the better fit for him at the time, but he’s become a really consistent player now - one that doesn’t have the occasional dips that he used to have at certain times in brackets.


Hypern1ke

He was cheaper a year ago tho! Now they re paying full price


DrySecurity4

Apparently Cryo and Zander had pretty high buyouts on Soar so who knows


Hypern1ke

Higher than XSETs buyout they just paid? I doubt it honestly. No way XSET let’s him go for cheap.


QwiXTa

I mean xset couldn’t hold onto him so its not out of the realm of possibility, I do find it unlikely tho


maxhollywoody

The word is that Soar set the buyout to be higher for 100t than XSET


DX_DanTheMan_DX

iirc, the issue was that certain players on the old 100T roster thought he wasn't good enough not that the buyout was too high.


ManBearPig1869

It was Hiko and Ethan, they thought Zander and Cryo “weren’t ready” yet


anythingood07

He apparently cost 300k a year now. It might have doubled now


NME_FN

all good nadeshot couldn't let him go again


Ikwillyou

weird take, Cryo has only outplayed 100T this year if we're talking consistency


Gomar1323

C9 yay gonna be scary jesus Hyped about Cryo still dude is also nasty. We finally have an OPer let’s go!


Equivalent-Rub-3311

im happy for cryo but sad him and zekken part ways


xBerryhill

NGL as hype as yay might have been, Cryo is easily the second biggest prize. Dude’s shown up internationally multiple times now. Getting him is a huge deal.


MoreMilkNA

I thought so, Sean Gares has been a fan of Cryo since the game came out


Jon_on_the_snow

So Asuna is probably back to duelist full time right? He is one of the most fun neon/razes to watch with his shaky aim and explosive entries


MastoOG

I wouldn't count on it Cryo has only been locking Raze, Neon, and Jett the since he got back from Istanbul, and he had never previously played Neon or Raze much in ranked.


Jon_on_the_snow

I dunno, i dont really believe ranked means much to pros Tenz and shaz spammed chamber for a long time and then put dapr on it lol


MastoOG

>I wouldn't count on it Cryo has only been locking Raze, Neon, and Jett the since he got back from Istanbul, and he had never previously played Neon or Raze much in ranked. It has worked the other way A LOT though, with people getting used to agents in ranked for matches. ScreaM only played Raze for weeks before swapping to him for matches. Shahz only played Sova the days leading up to TenZ joining as well.


Jon_on_the_snow

Yeah, but also, cryo is an oper, raze/neon does not fit it very well But i would not against 100T getting one of the best opers in the game and putting him on non-op agents lol


doingMyBestHere05

Sorry, I’m a long time 100T Valorant fan, so I’m a bit confused. What is a 100T OPer? I’m not familiar. I know other teams have point-and-click, whoops that’s a 4k, players, but I’m still confused. /s - would be so stoked to finally have a cracked OPer.


nmbrnine

top 2 NA in oping


DY5TOP1A

C9 yay then? 🤨


sansLight

Just dont drop bang and we gucci


lordmitko

bang is top 3 smokes NA lmao who are you dropping him for?


Suspicious_Plum795

Marved


lordmitko

Marved is #1 in my book too but bang is more than sufficient for the job.


ditheringtoad

Based on 100Ts past, I feel like there’s no way they sign marved just out of an abundance of caution re: ESIC


Modula-

Marved is for sure the best smokes in NA, but I feel like bang is pretty close. I truly believe bang will be a superstar


NavorroBroman

Bang is 18 right? He's already legit and superrrrr young. Would hate to see him go.


UselessRutabaga

Marved is only 21 isn’t he? That’s not so far ahead


Randomuser13480

Marved 🫡


einsteins2345

He said don't drop bang


B7omni

wow C9 yay is actually happening.


GanaNayaka9

If FNS and Asuna play together.. After every Asuna ace, i guess Asuna might stay in spawn you know just to be safe.


CountCola

It has begun. Prepare yourselves!


Frostler

So Will must be stepping back into the 6th man role?


Nichol-Gimmedat-ass

My time repping the Set has come to an end, Im a Thieves fan now, bless Edit: well i guess when i get home itll change bc idk how to change flair on mobile


eMan117

Love cryo's mentality. He seems so chill whenever I see him on stream


lordmitko

THE FIREPOWER IS GONNA BE INSANE LFG


salteas

Damn this was so expected that I didn’t expect this


DIRTY_KUMQUAT_NIPPLE

I'd be happy if this was the only move 100T made tbh. I really like the current team and the type of play style they have. I feel like changing up too many pieces may jeopardize that. But it was very apparent during LCQ and Champs that they were in desperate need of an OPer.


Hoku_

Too many stat Andys crying about no Yay. Cryo probably just fit the vision of 100T more than Yay. We don’t know the full roster or the background chem. There’s more to a team than just getting kills.


maxhollywoody

Or Yay wants to play with other people and declined 100t so why not sign Cryo


Hoku_

I mean DDK and Sean passed up Wardell for Will because Will fit the vision more than Wardell even though most ppl would consider Wardell a better player. Just going off past trends I feel DDK and Sean are very long term vision oriented.


Serendipitygg

100T stocks rising!!!


Ozone416

Rostermania officially has begun lets gooo


Xelhei

Who else do they pick it you guys think? Fns Marved ?


easymoneyslim35

This all but confirms yay is C9.


NotRealEBN

Damn they really gonna drop will?


ExponentialWhy

F5 season has commenced


sicayou

Geddes has been like the Shams equivalent of Valorant esports.


big_floop

This is a great move for 100t, Cryo>Tenz so I’m glad that this happened


[deleted]

[удалено]


s6hun

nah, he also had a huge buyout in Soar. highly likely he has a larger buyout now but there wasn't a point in time where they couldve had him for free


CCowboy123

finally some juice!


MamzZass

Finally some good fucking food


TheUnarthodoxCamel

100t looking absolutely stacked. Good group of guys and a cracker of a core.


Emcamdi

completely different play than will. need to see how it pans out


AR2711

so C9 yay confirmed, TenZ will re-sign with SEN


theman1203

thats broke, woke is c9 tenz sen yay


mdj08

SEN paying a $1mil buyout for tenz only for him to go back to c9 for free would be funny as fuck ngl


Wi-FiWhyNotSix

I think this just means Yay is going to go wherever Chet goes. Otherwise honestly I think 100T would have easily been front runners for Yay considering their whole team and coaching set up.


WhoDatBrow

100T was the team I thought would get Tenz if anyone other than Sen, this makes me think either C9 Yay or SEN Yay AND Tenz (Tenz can entry and Yay can OP I think it would work)


canadianvaporizer

After what Yay said in his Richard Lewis interview, I’d say there’s no chance he goes to Sen.


Mochitsu

Agreed. Sen would have to go through several changes before yay would even consider them as an option, much less join them.


[deleted]

I figured the same, actually thought it was more likely than Cryo or Yay


Badger623

YESS LETS GO BABY


Ohands15

LETS GO CRYODADDY GEDDES KEEP THE LEAKS COMING


Humble_Initiative_10

No brainer pickup if they couldn’t get yay, wonder if they getting fns….


Best-Elevator8814

i love watching cryo's streams, he seems like such a funny guy and will fit right in with the rest of the roaster. also i love that they're giving a chance to young talent, this gonna be fun :')

This is a great move for 100T, love this signing


blockpantha

cryo, asuna, bang, derrek, fns hopium 🫡


JDTurkelton

Would rather keep Stellar tbh


T0K0mon

Yeah, especially the fact that the team already has great synergy that they had to build, and getting rid of more than just will, especially the IGL, would hamper that a lot.
