Nitr0 Set To Leave 100 Thieves VALORANT For CS:GO Return

The grass isn't always greener on the other side, and for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) veteran sweetheart Nicholas "nitr0" Cannella, his switch to VALORANT is set to be reversed after failing to qualify for the inaugural Champions finals with 100 Thieves.

Nitr0, who has north of $900,000 in winnings throughout a seven-year campaign in CS:GO, switched to Riot Games' shiny FPS shooter in 2020, signing with 100 Thieves. Carrying on his notorious winning habits learned at Team Liquid, Nitr0 and 100 Thieves cruised to victory in his debut event, taking home the First Strike North America title before getting another gold-plated finish in the VCT Stage 2 Challengers 1.

However, mixed with other CS:GO war-horses such as Spencer "Hiko" Martin and Joshua "Steel" Nissan, 100 Thieves' success in VALORANT was thwarted, despite peaking in Stage 3 where they reached the semi-final stage of Masters Berlin. 

With changes imminent, Steel was removed from the roster, and now it appears Nitr0 preferred life without Cybercage and Hunter's Fury.

Nitr0 Set To Switch Back To CS:GO

After seeing a wealth of top professionals take the leap of faith to VALORANT, Nitr0 is reported to be heading back to the title where he made his name, with his former organisation expected to be capturing his signature once again.

According to a report from 1pv.fr, Nitr0's return to Team Liquid is "close to a done deal", which will see him be reunited with Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski. Various reports suggest that Team Liquid are expected to make a huge overhaul of their roster, with the likes of Jacky "Stewie2K" Yip and Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo nearing the exit.

The reports suggest that Nitr0 has played his last game of competitive VALORANT, and will bow out with $46,000 in earnings.

Team Liquid Eye Nitr0, shox, and Vini for 2022

In addition to Nitr0's return, 1pv.fr suggested that Team Liquid will be the likely destination for Richard "shox" Pap who is rumoured to be leaving Team Vitality. The highly-decorated 29-year-old French native could leave Vitality following the BLAST Premier Fall Finals, making his first international move in over 10 years of playing.

Vinicius "VINI" Figueiredo appears to have been identified as the potential Team Liquid AWPer too, with Liquid's Michael "Grim" Wince also expected to be leaving alongside Stewie2K and FalleN.

Team Liquid's new-look roster is expected to come to fruition in the early stages of 2022, although it is still unclear as to who their fifth man could be.
