100 Thieves CEO Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag has hinted in his most recent vlog that the organisation, which has also just received a $35 million Series B funding, will be acquiring a CS:GO team soon.
At the start of a meeting between some of the more notable members of the 100 Thieves team, including Nadeshot, president and COO 100 Thieves, VP of esports Jacob “Maelk” Toft-Anderson and Eric “Muddawg” Sanderson.
Before switching off the vlog whilst they conduct their important meeting, Nadeshot says “We’re getting a CS:GO team is basically what I’m telling you. We’re getting a CS:GO team. We’re getting a CS:GO team.” Rocket League is also mentioned during the video, which could be implying some major expansions across the organisation.
Of course, Maelk’s previous place of employment, Infinite Esports & Entertainment, have recently been bought out by Immortals Gaming Club and have released the OpTic CS:GO team, and his connections to the Danes could see them joining 100 Thieves in the near future.
However, with this huge $35m investment, they could really look to pick up any team they wanted, so their options are wide open as one of the most desirable and celebrated orgs of today.
100 Thieves has had a short history in CS:GO, acquiring the former Brazilian powerhouse team of SK Gaming, before some questionable choices were made by players that reflected poorly on the org and saw them getting dropped before even playing a match under the 100T banner.
100 Thieves currently resides only in League of Legends, Call of Duty and Fortnite, with representation at the Fortnite World Cup, the CoD team winning back-to-back Major championships and the LoL team qualifying for Worlds in their first year as a team. They’ve come a long way in a short space of time, and a world-beating CS:GO team could push them even further ahead of the competition.
