In the video, the team members had a lot of heartfelt stuff to say for their ‘Clutch Captain’, they also mentioned that Hiko was monumental in not only their accomplishments for Valorant, but the entirety of 100T. After that Hiko had a few words to say about his retirement from professional Valorant and what lies ahead for him in 100 Thieves.
Hiko already has a history of being a professional E-sports player and has had an illustrious career in the days of Counter Strike. He also rose to glory in a very quick manner when Valorant first came out. Hiko was doubtful about just being a streamer for the game or becoming a Pro, but when 100T approached him to build a team, he knew that this was his path.
He came to the limelight in North America for Valorant when 100T emerged victorious in the First Strike tournament and the rest is history. Hiko will now focus on streaming full time and provide his fan base with unique content that has never been seen before. His teammate Asuna, who is reported to become the next leader for the team also had some kind words to say for the departing member.
It’s been a pleasure being your teammate and friend for the start of my VALORANT career. Good luck Spencer, hoping the best for you and thank you for being my foundation ❤️
