100 Thieves has added Sean “sgares” Gares as head coach of its VALORANT and has appointed Daniel “ddk” Kapadia in the position of general manager.
100 Thieves Reinforced Its VALORANT Staff
North American esports organization and lifestyle brand 100 Thieves has reinforced its VALORANT team with the addition of a new head coach and a team general manager. The ones up to the task are Sean “sgares” Gares and Daniel “ddk” Kapadia respectively.
The addition of ddk confirms previous reports which suggested that he might be the likely pick for the organization’s new general manager. What made him suitable for the role is his long experience with esports. Ddk used to be one of the most influential VALORANT commentators. Before the release of Riot’s shooter, the talented caster worked for the CS:GO scene where he has years of experience. Ddk recently announced his decision to forfeit casting, following an unspecified disagreement with Riot Games.
Sgares situation is similar – he is also a former analyst who has experience with both VALORANT and CS:GO. Gares announced his leave from commenting a few days ago and will now be coaching 100 Thieves’ VALORANT team alongside assistant coach Michael “Mikes” Hockom.
Nadeshot Promised 100 Thieves Will Get Better in VALORANT
The new additions come in the wake of 100 Thieves’ unlucky 2022 campaign. The team failed to go to the playoffs during the first stage of the VALORANT Champions Tour and subsequently lost its shot at the Reykjavík Masters One tournament in Iceland.
To make up for its losses, 100 Thieves introduced changes to its roster. The organization removed Adam “ec1s” Eccles and Hunter “BabyJ” Schline from the lineup, replacing them with Noah “jcStani” Smith and Sean “bang” Bezerra.
The addition of sgares and ddk is the next step in 100 Thieves’ efforts to conquer the VALORANT scene and mark its name in the game’s competitive history. 100 Thieves’ chief executive officer, Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag commented on the new additions, saying that while the organization did not start 2022 on a good foot, it is never too late to make a change.
“We’re here, 100 Thieves is not going anywhere in VALORANT and I promise you we will get better,” Nadeshot announced.
100 Thieves will now stay out of smaller tournaments and will instead opt to use this precious time to train and polish the players’ skills.
