100 Thieves Peter “Asuna” Mazuryk has been on fire lately in Valorant Champions Tour.

Even after a loss to the FaZe Clan in the VCT Challengers 3 Grand Final, his performance against Luminosity Gaming was still on the trend worldwide. The win gave the team a 2-0 win of 100 Thieves needed to continue competing in the Grand Final against the FaZe Clan. 

100 Thieves Asuna shocks Valorant fans with 1v3 situation

There were various instances in the game where fans were shaking their chests with excitement, but the best of the night was when 100 Thieves Asuna found himself in a one on three situation.

Ethan “Ethan” Arnold, Spencer “Hiko” Martin, Nicholas “nitr0” Cannella, and Joshua “steel” Nissan all went down fairly fast, leaving him alone against three Luminosity Gaming opponents. 

The spike had already been planted, and 100 Thieves had been the defenders. 100 Thieves Asuna found his first kill in Kaleb’s “moose” Jayne, followed by a headshot of Diondre’s “YaBoiDre” Bond not long after his teammates were killed.  He finally got a blind kill on Brady “thief” Dever by using Raze’s ultimate ability, Showstopper, to shoot his Blast Pack over the top of the crate.

His incredible clutch was accompanied by a number of other individual plays over the weekend. He hit a separate ACE during the match against Luminosity Gaming, and he also pulled off a huge clutch against NRG Esports the day before. Despite having little experience in the game, 17 year old Asuna looks like one of the world’s best. Valorant Esports is packed with former stars from a variety of titles.

His Twitter after a big weekend

100 Thieves Asuna‘s name began to trend on Twitter after his incredible clutch and various exceptional plays against Luminosity Gaming and NRG Esports. “Viewers laud Asuna’s performance in 100 Thieves during the Challenger series,” according to the trend. 

Anyone who follows the Valorant competitive scene on Twitter was inundated with people gushing about Asuna’s individual abilities. People were confident going into the match against FaZe Clan that 100 Thieves would win, but they lost the grand final match 3-0.
Despite their loss to FaZe Clan, 100 Thieves are still a team to be reckoned with heading into Masters. There’s no telling how unstoppable Asuna and Hiko will be on match day, given their ability to run wild and make clutch plays. They will compete for points that will qualify them for Valorant’s first world championship event during the VCT Masters tournament.
