100 Thieves' Matthew 'Nadeshot' Haag announced that their Call of Duty roster would make a change mid-series, subbing in Maurice 'Fero' Henriquez for Preston 'Priestahh' Greiner after he threw up on stage.
Nadeshot revealed on Twitter that during 100 Thieves’ match vs Enigma 6 to guarantee a top-four placing at CWL Fort Worth, Priestahh was throwing up on the stage before admins had to put the series on hold.
Priestahh was added to the 100 Thieves Call of Duty roster over Fero in late January in hopes that they would be a contending team for the CWL Pro League and events.
Currently up 5-1 in the Search and Destroy vs. E6. @Priestahh dropped 50 kills first map, popped a 2 piece in round 6 of the SND, dropped his controller and then threw up on stage mid round. He’s still feeling sick, hoping he feels better and we start back up soon. https://t.co/NnS3mlZcRu— 100T Nadeshot (@Nadeshot) March 17, 2019
Over the course over the last two months, 100 Thieves has seen dramatic improvement since the Pro League Qualifier when they secured the first spot in their division after an incredible run.
Many chalked Priestahh up as 100 Thieves star player who has helped catapult them to the top and they were one of the favorite teams leading into CWL Fort Worth.
This is why many 100 thieves fans started to get worried when 100Thieves owner and CEO, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag revealed that Priestahh was throwing up on the stage and that Fero would be taking his place.
Our substitute and former starter @f3rocitys will be playing out the remainder of the tournament here at CWL Fort Worth. We’re getting @Priestahh checked out with the EMT’s and making sure he’s okay. I’ll keep everyone updated as the day continues. https://t.co/rihmIdkThs— 100T Nadeshot (@Nadeshot) March 17, 2019
The substitution has now also been officially confirmed by tournament organizers, Call of Duty World League, as they posted the 100 Thieves' Call of Duty roster change on their Twitter account.
Nadeshot stated that Priestahh is receiving medical care from the EMT's on-site at CWL Fort Worth and will continue to update fans on his health condition over the course of the day.
Many are also left wondering how this will affect 100 Thieves' chances for the rest of the tournament as they are currently sat with a guaranteed Top 6 placement and will likely not have practiced at all with substitute Fero leading into the event.
