It has since been confirmed that Kenny has joined 100 Thieves’ new Call of Duty roster for the upcoming season. More information is available here.

Call of Duty pro player Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams has announced that he is longer a member of Team Kaliber.

His departure confirms long standing rumors and speculation that he was planning on leaving the org after the WWII season.

Kenny announced that he had left tK on August 28, via a post on his Twitter page.

To get rid of rumors. I am officially off @TeamKaliber and Would like to thank @KOSDFF and everyone for everything they have done for me. Words that were said before were not true and TK is a great org, Just time for me to look at other options:)

The tweet also puts to bed the apparent bad blood that existed between Kenny and tK owner Justin ‘KOSDFF’ Chandler, after Kenny had expressed his frustration with the org for not paying proper wages and mocking him in a video showing others wearing his clothes.

Kenny joined tK in October of 2017 and immediately became an integral part of the newly formed squad, playing a major role in their outstanding success. 

TK won the first two major events of the CWL season, at Dallas and New Orleans respectively, and also were crowned champions at the Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.

They came just short of winning the ultimate prize however, as they lost to Evil Geniuses in the Grand Finals of the CWL Championships.

MLGKenny played an important role in Team Kaliber’s multiple title winning season, including at the Pro League Stage 2 Playoffs.

Having established himself as one of the best players in WWII, Kenny will likely attract major attention from many of the organizations that are involved in competitive Call of Duty. 

With 100 Thieves having confirmed that they are looking to enter the CWL with a bang, there is heavy speculation that owner and CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag will make Kenny his primary target this off-season.

Regardless of where he ends up, Kenny’s departure will greatly impact tK, who will now be looking to try to replace the player that many would agree was their best player all season.


Another Team Kaliber, Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez, has since also declared free agency. More information can be found here.

Sources: 100 Thieves acquire OpTic’s CDL spot, represented as LA Thieves

Sources have told Dexerto that 100 Thieves are entering the Call of Duty League by purchasing the spot previously held by OpTic Gaming Los Angeles.

After initially declining to invest in a slot for the Call of Duty League’s inaugural 2020 season, 100 Thieves are re-entering CoD esports after all for the 2021 campaign and beyond.

The spot that had been OpTic Gaming Los Angeles’ has now transferred ownership to the prominent esports organization, and sources have reported that 100T will rebrand the team to LA Thieves.

Immortals Gaming Club, which had purchased OpTic Gaming and one of two Los Angeles CDL franchise spots, recently sold the Green Wall back to Hector ‘H3CZ’ Rodriguez, who will remain in control of the brand.

OpTic Gaming LA
The OpTic Gaming Los Angeles franchise will end after just one season of competing in the CDL.

At this time, it’s not yet clear whether the league will allow H3CZ to rebrand his Chicago Huntsmen franchise to OpTic. Since he’s already the CEO of Huntsmen, his reacquisition of the OpTic brand meant that control of one of the two teams would eventually have to change hands once again.

According to recent reports from Esports Talk, the CDL was taking the stance that franchises should remain tied to the cities they were initially founded in. Thus, if H3CZ and NRG wanted their team to take on the OpTic Gaming insignia, they would have to sell the Huntsmen spot and move their Call of Duty operations to Los Angeles.

However, in those same reports, it was indicated that despite their initial unwillingness to enter the CDL, 100 Thieves and CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag acquiring a spot was not totally out of the question, and now it’s come to fruition.

100 Thieves Call of Duty
While brief, 100 Thieves’ first stint in competitive Call of Duty was a highly successful one.

While brief, 100 Thieves’ first stint in Call of Duty esports was a very successful one; the team captured two major trophies in the then-called CoD World League and finished second in the CWL World Championship.

100T’s team became a fan-favorite, and when Nadeshot announced that they’d be leaving the esport due to the transition to franchising, many were left disappointed, especially considering Haag’s extensive CoD background.

The only question that remains now is concerning their roster – whether or not Nadeshot or his org will want to make any personnel changes remains to be seen, but if not, many will still expect the team to be a contender, considering that three of the four players are top-tier with championship experience.

100 Thieves Call of Duty
CoD stars SlasheR and Kenny are returning to 100 Thieves as members of LA Thieves.

For SlasheR and Kenny, this will be their second stint with 100T after previously featuring for the org in its lone season of competition. Similarly, General Manager Eric ‘Muddawg’ Sanders is also returning to the red and black after leaving them for OpTic when the org parted ways from CoD esports.

As always, we will continue to update this story and bring you the latest as more information becomes available.
