After Sinatraa’s return to VALORANT competitive scene and Sentinels reportedly playing without zombs, April 12 has brought another breaking news for the fans as Spencer “Hiko” Martin from 100 Thieves announces his retirement from the professional VALORANT.
100 Thieves announced this officially on their official Twitter handle as they tweeted, “While today marks the end of Spencer’s professional VALORANT career, he is excited to share details about his new journey here @100Thieves”
However, he will stay with 100 Thieves as a full-time content creator as he said, “This decision was pretty bittersweet for me, I’m sure I am going to miss competing, but I am also super excited to announce that I will be continuing my content creation career under 100 Thieves.”
In addition to this, he announced that he would be streaming full time and thanked everyone for being a part of his 14-year journey that started with CS:GO. Nadeshot, the founder and CEO of 100 Thieves, said, “You know this chapter closes, but we open up a new one. His personality just fits so well with, I think, the on-camera persona that a lot of our town have, and really overall, this is a player’s organization, and at the end of the day, we are truly friends. I think it’s incredible, and he’s gonna be more successful than he ever has before, in my opinion.”
We’ll definitely miss him playing VALORANT professionally; however, we wish him all the best for his future journey.
