The History of 100 Thieves

100 Thieves is one of the teams that has been since the beginning of the North American competitive calendar, mainly for having been the First Strike champion at the end of 2020. However, since the beginning of 2021, the team has been hitting the crossbar on account of Sentinels, which was responsible for playing them in the lower bracket in Masters 1, VALORANT Challengers Finals 2 also Challengers 3 finals. But this time, it was different, as the team managed to reach the final, where they lost to the Sentinels from 3 to 1 and guaranteed their first participation in an international event.

The 100 Thieves had a very positive balance, even more, if compared to the previous ones. The team could not overcome a harrowing defeat in the upper bracket and waved goodbye to the tournament in the first game of the lower rack. They won FaZe 2-0 in the opening match and XSET also 2-0, but in the final of the upper bracket, they ended up losing to Sentinels 2-0, falling to the final of the lower bracket against Team Envy, series in which they won from 3 to 2.

The grand final was another duel against Sentinels, which ended 3-1 for the current Masters Reykjavík champions. Check below all the results and scores of each map from the 100 Thieves of Challengers matches to the Challengers Playoffs:
