100 Thieves' Octane explains why the team will no longer stream scrims

A Reddit post by user agardner2017 claimed that esports team 100 Thieves are no longer streaming their practice matches for Call of Duty - which the user blamed on the team’s ‘toxic’ community.

Commentator Landon Sanders addressed the post on Twitter, asking 100 Thieves members to speak out on the issue.

Octane, a professional player for the team, explained that their decision to quit streaming scrims isn’t due to any perceived toxicity - rather, he claimed that it is due to ‘public perceptions’ about scrims, in general.

“It's not about the ‘haters’ in chat,” Octane stated. “It's the public perception about scrims. Any genuine discussion we attempt to have on stream becomes a Reddit thread or is just blown out of proportion because we're losing. We're in a lose-lose situation as a team at the moment.”

He followed up by claiming that practicing off stream allows for greater discussion and improvement ‘without interference,’ and that he will continue streaming ‘everything but scrims’ going forward.

Envy captain ACHES likewise commented on the topic, stating that no professional players should stream their scrims, calling CoD’s fanbase ‘entitled and spoiled.’

“No professional players should ever stream scrims,” ACHES wrote. “No other esport does it. CoD fans are entitled and spoiled in that aspect. It ruins the ideal that is practice. You shouldn’t have to filter what you would when producing content in a practice to get better.”

While some fans are taking issue with ACHES’s statement on the matter, it looks as if 100 Thieves are standing by their new policy on scrimmage streaming.

100 Thieves CEO and founder Nadeshot has yet to speak publicly on this development.
