Frost failed to secure qualification for 100 Thieves in his first Valorant Champions Tour tournament. However, 100T qualified for the Masters Berlin and finished 3rd-4th under his coaching. However, the management of 100T were unsatisfied by the performance as they were favourites to win it. As a result, they benched their IGL Steel for the upcoming Last Chance qualifiers.
Aaron “b0i” Thao replaced Steel in the roster. Furthermore, nitro took the role of leader of the in-game leader from Steel. 100 Thieves were clear favourites to win the NA LCQ as they had the LAN experience, momentum, and a great squad. But, they failed to secure their slot for Valorant Champions which is one of the most anticipated tournaments of the year.
Currently, Frost is under probation due to unprofessional behavior targeted at a Riot Games Officer at VCT Masters Berlin.
