Asuna Sent Death Threats After Trash-Talk In VALORANT Masters: Berlin

Asuna Sent Death Threats After Trash-Talk In VALORANT Masters: Berlin

Despite being arguably one of the top-three VALORANT players in the world, 100 Thieves star man Peter "Asuna" Mazuryk has faced death threats over his on-stage theatrics during their 2-0 thumping of Havan Liberty at VCT Masters: Berlin.

Kicking off 100 Thieves' debut on LAN in VALORANT, and the first-ever live event for the young prodigy Asuna, the North Americans faced Brazilian side Havan Liberty, the easier of their upcoming games - on paper.

With heavy expectations on their shoulders due to having a wealth of experience at live events throughout lengthy and successful Counter-Strike careers for Joshua "steel" Nissan, Spencer "Hiko" Martin, and Nick "nitr0", 100 Thieves started with a convincing dagger to the hearts of Havan Liberty - Asuna's Jett Blade daggers being pivotal.

As confidence brewed, the antics and trash-talk came to the stage, just as we'd seen in the previous matches. Asuna, loving his first game in Berlin with the team, began stirring the pot during a technical pause, in which he teased the Brazilians - in good spirits - for "wasting time".

The banter was subsequently spread on social media by VCT host and analyst Yinsu Collins, although she soon retracted her tweet due to death threats being cast in the direction of Asuna.

Taking to Twitter again, Yinsu wrote: "Can’t believe I have to say this, but for the love of God don’t send death threats to players for having fun."

The friendly trash-talking, sometimes mistaken for actual BM, was enough for many haters to brand the young star as "cocky" despite many community figures claiming he's "one of the nicest players" in VALORANT

Typical of his seemingly cheeky nature, Asuna stayed clear of getting into any online wars with anyone following their convincing victory, only having one last probe at his opponents for picking to play on 100 Thieves' best map, Icebox.

100 Thieves have now become the first team to qualify for the Playoffs, after a hard-fought comeback versus Gambit, in which they were down 11-3 in a decisive second match before chaining ten consecutive rounds together. 

As per usual, Asuna lead the statistics for most kills, collecting 59 frags in three maps - unphased by the recent comments. A solid way to answer your critics.
