After a disappointing performance, 100 Thieves abruptly drop Ec1s and Babyj effective immediately to look for other options.
I think it would be unfair to not say that Valorant’s competitive scene is constantly changing. Decisions like these are not easy for the orgs to make or for the players to accept. But you gotta do what you gotta do.
Following up on 100 Thieves’ performance against the Guard with the 0-13 loss, and the 2-0 loss against Cloud 9 this decision came into play. We also have 100 thieves CEO explaining the situation.

It seemed that the relationship between Ec1s and Babyj was not that great. And 100 thieves’ performance as a team was not as good as it should have been seeing how individually talented they are.
According to the new VCT format, only 2 teams from NA will qualify for Masters. And 100 Thieves was not at all confident with their current roster.
Babyj’s Reaction to the Roster Change
As any player would be in this situation, Babyj is disappointed with the result and feels like they were blindsided. But He still respects the decision and the best thing to do in this situation is to move on.
