Following 100 Thieves' performance at CWL Vegas that saw them end the weekend with a Top 12 finish, CEO Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has given his thoughts on the tournament.
With 100 Thieves diving back into Call of Duty for the Black Ops 4 season with a high-profile roster, the expectations for their first event were through the roof.
After struggling through the Pool Play stage, however, 100 Thieves went on to get bounced from the tournament by Luminosity Gaming, sealing their fate with a 9-12 finish.
Despite what he acknowledges as a “disappointing placing,” Nadeshot is nonetheless optimistic about the future of his team.
“At the end of the day, man, we’ve got a lot of talent on our team and it’s a new game,” Nadeshot said about his team’s performance in Vegas. “Some things take time.”
While some might be looking at the team’s performance as evidence that a roster move is already needed, Nadeshot assured fans that the team is fine as is.
“There’s a lot of upside for our team. That’s the one thing that I want everyone to realize,” Nadeshot says about his roster.
As Nadeshot sees it, the team simply needs to work on working together as a unit since having “all the talent in the world” won’t matter if they’re not playing together well.
Even though the team fell short at CWL Vegas, they still placed well enough to participate in the CWL Pro League qualifiers set to kick off on January 16 where they’ll compete with for a shot at one of the final 12 spots in the League.
