A number of Call of Duty Pro League teams from Division B, including 100 Thieves and Team Envy, have revealed that they are all facing travel issues in getting to Columbus.
The Division B portion of the Pro League is set to kick-off on February 18 after Division A action wrapped up on February 14 – with two highly-anticipated match-ups getting things started.
Team Heretics are set to take on eUnited before 100 Thieves are supposed to face off against Team Envy in the final game of the first day. However, the all-North American match-up could be in jeopardy as members of both squads told fans via social media that they were facing travel problems.
100 Thieves’ Sam ‘Octane’ Larew tweeted: “Flight got canceled and there’s ‘no available flights for tomorrow on any airline’ from LAX. 100T will be playing from the Oakboyz crib, join up bros.”
The former Luminosity and OpTic Gaming star added that four American Airlines planes were “unusable due to maintenance” despite the squad witnessing one operate and land only moments earlier.
4 planes that were unusable due to “maintenance” one of which LANDED, DEPLANED, then proceeded to tell us it doesn’t work. @AmericanAir you suck

The 100 Thieves squad were joined by Team Envy’s Justin ‘Silly’ Fargo and Splyce’s Lamar Accuracy’ Abedi in their travel woes.
“Accuracy, Kenny, Enable, Crowder, Octane, Priestahh and myself have been waiting for our American Airlines flight 10 hours after scheduled departure,” tweeted Silly. “The most mind-blowing thing we’ve ever experienced, wow.”

None of the players, bar Accuracy – who isn’t scheduled to play until Tuesday, have posted an update since their initial tweets.
If the whole 100 Thieves roster is unable to make it in time, their clash with Envy would likely have to be rescheduled for later in the week – with both squads possibly having to pull double duty by playing two matches in one day.
Spylce star Accuracy has revealed that he is attempting to leave Los Angeles on the earliest possible flight, in a bid to make it to Columbus without any further delays.
We go again tomorrow at 7am let’s see if we can make it to Columbus this time

100 Thieves’ Austin ‘SlasheR’ Liddicoat chimed in with an update on situation, stating that he doesn’t believe the game against Team Envy will go ahead as scheduled.
Nope that match isn’t happening
