100 Thieves Reveal First Two Players of Their Call of Duty Roster for Black Ops 4 Season

North American esports organization 100 Thieves have revealed the first two members of their highly anticipated Call of Duty roster.

Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams and Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez have officially joined the org and will compete under 100 Thieves during the upcoming Black Ops 4 season. 

The news was announced late on August 28 via a post on the official 100 Thieves Twitter page.

The time has finally come…
100 THIEVES ENTERS CALL OF DUTY
Welcome to the team @100T_KuavoKenny & @100T_Fero.
More news to follow. #100T

Kenny also posted about this massive move on his own Twitter page, expressing his gratitude for the opportunity.

100T founder and CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, a former tournament-winning CoD pro player himself, was understandably very excited about his org’s massive announcement.

This news comes hours after both players announced that they would be leaving Team Kaliber, and it is now apparent that neither player had truly entered free agency as their new team had already been decided before their departure.

Kenny and Fero established themselves as top players during the WWII season, as both played integral roles in helping tK have a very successful campaign.

After acquiring Fero mid-season, tK went on to win the CWL Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs and place second at the CWL Championships. 

Of course all of this came after the team had already won the CWL open events at both Dallas and New Orleans, with Kenny leading the way as their standout player.

Now both will be teaming again for a 100 Thieves team that has not featured in competitive Call of Duty since their brief and fruitless spell during the second half of the Black Ops 3 season in 2016.

However, Nadeshot has been very honest about his desire to acquire a quality CoD roster, and it appears he has managed to get the two players he has openly been a fan of in recent months.

With two of the best available talents already locked into the 100T roster, fans will await to see who will be joining them for the Black Ops 4 season.

Empire continue championship form, FaZe (and Surge) falter

The Dallas Empire were the best Call of Duty team in 2020 and that form has lasted into 2021. The day started with 2020 MVP Anthony ‘Shotzzy’ Cuevas-Castro racking up 35 kills and just 17 deaths with almost two minutes of hill time on Map 1, but then it became the Indervir ‘iLLeY’ Dhaliwal show as the upsurging player hit star form with some huge clutches.

With Empire cleaning up their former teammate James ‘Clayster’ Eubanks’ New York Subliners, the day moved on with two tight Map 5’s. First, Bryan ‘Apathy’ Zhelyazkov and the Los Angeles Guerrillas outdueled a revamped Seattle Surge 3-2 and then, in a twist few saw coming, the Florida Mutineers came back against the Atlanta FaZe.

As Cesar ‘Skyz’ Bueno returned to the form that earned him MVP candidacy in 2020, the Mutineers flew back from a 2-1 deficit and eventually clinched the 3-2 victory against a FaZe team who stood near the top of most standings for this season.
