Ethan swaps from CS:GO to join 100 Thieves

Written By    Germanicus  -  share on

100 Thieves have announced a surprising move today. Ethan "Ethan" Arnold has joined the team.

Ethan has played Counter-Strike: Global Offensive at the professional level since 2016. He’s competed on multiple large organizations, including CLG and NRG, but most recently represented Evil Geniuses. He helped that team to a win in StarSeries and i-League Season 8 and a top-level finish in ESL Pro League Season 10 Americas, before Counter-Strike moved entirely online due to COVID-19. During this time, he’s brought EG a win at BLAST Premier Spring 2020 Americas, cs_summit 6 North America, and ESL One: Cologne 2020 North America.

While nothing has been made totally official, many hints have been dropped that Quan "dicey" Tran will be the one replaced. Though his performances picked up over the last few months, being one of their top performers in Challengers 2, it seems it was still not enough.

What role Ethan will be taking up is unknown. dicey’s departure does leave the team in need of a Jett/Operator player if that is the way they want to keep going.

100 Thieves are now:

Spencer “Hiko” Martin Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella Joshua “steel” Nissan Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk Ethan “Ethan” Arnold

Quan “dicey” Tran (Benched)

Hector “FrosT” Rosario (Coach)

valorant gained a legend, this guy will be smashing

oh wow. I didnt expect that. Is he replacing dicey or will someone else play duelist i wonder.
2021-02-28 14:06
I hope they do a six player lineup, because droping dicey would be a huge mistake in my opinion
2021-02-28 14:13
if you just read it, says he replaced Dicey. Dicey will prolly go to TSM when they switch up their squad
2021-02-28 14:26
I know how to read thank you, 100T hasn't said anything that he was completly dropped, there hasn't been any thank you or any information regarding dicey's future beside that he won't be competing in the VC3, right now there's only what dicey said on his twitter that hints to him being completly dropped, so my comment still stands.
It's a mistake dropping someone who's improving, if he's completly dropped, I do believe dicey will go to a new roster soon, most likely with Brax and AZK
2021-02-28 14:41
even teammates tweets sound like he's dropped
2021-02-28 14:53
That is true, and even nadeshot has just said that on his stream that dicey has been dropped but at the time I wrote that, there was no concrete info that he had been kicked.
There has been cases of players getting benched and coming back soon after, this is not the case though
2021-02-28 15:33
I was just going to comment about this, Nade commented on his stream that they are commited to helping Dicey find a new org he can succeed with.

CLG Dicey when

2021-02-28 14:53
rly cool, good for 100!
2021-02-28 15:05
dicey is dropped
steel said that ethan will be on Omen and intr0 will switch, the OPing will be between nitr0 and steel if needed

unexpected,, this lineup looks sick
2021-02-28 15:35
Nitr0 on the awp now, very exccited to see Ethan, this guy's mechanics and gamesense on CS were worth top 20 in 2019 and during th eonline era he was farming all the NA teams where a lot of the top valoran tplayers used to be in, he will absolutely destroy the scene
2021-02-28 15:37
totally crazy move, very excited for him
2021-02-28 15:53
fucking weird to see ethan switching over. out of all of them. him? quite odd
2021-02-28 17:25
Ethan ? that would be the last of my guesses but hey good for 100 thieves, he is one of EG's hardest hitters, so he will be atleast top 10.
2021-02-28 21:03
gross
2021-02-28 21:33
100t might turn into another liquid cs, they don't have a main awp and everyone's just a rifler.
2021-02-28 22:37
Nah I think you forget how dominant nitr0 was back in 2019 with the awp, he made A site in Overpass his playground.
2021-03-01 09:51
Some org out there gotta be sign: dicey, AZK, TenZ and brax
2021-03-01 11:55
If that happens the only org I see doing the move is either, CLG or Complexity , I don't know if TenZ wants to come back now but a roster with dicey, AZK, brax ,POACH and Koler would be an awesome roster
2021-03-01 12:29
Yeah, although a few weeks ago TenZ told on stream that he could be back sooner than expected so we never know!
2021-03-02 04:58
That's true, but we need to take in consideration that he's still under contract with C9 and C9, according to Hiko, usually doesn't let players get out while they are still in contract specially good players

I would love to see TenZ back, that's for sure, any team in the world would be improved with TenZ
2021-03-02 05:58
Equinox just dropped their full team so you never know, but I don't think C9 lets Tenz go for anything

Really cool! I have a feeling he'll be really good
2021-03-01 12:22
Didn't expected this. I hope Ethan works fine with the team... also kinda sad for Dicey
2021-03-01 12:27
Not entirely sure why they replaced dicey, a player that's improving at rapid rates and has performed really well for 100T lately, but if that's what they think is best then that must be what they do. If I would replace anyone I would probably replace nitr0 and put Ethan on smokes.
2021-03-01 17:52
100 thieves are all about money and building a 'Super Team' filled with veterans. I think they don't want to build talent, they want to win now. They've lived by this for many years.
