Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez has hit back at rumors suggesting he was removed from 100 Thieves’ Black Ops 4 starting roster due to his behaviour.
100 Thieves qualified for the CWL Pro League at the Pro League Qualifier, but made hard work of the process after a disappointing pool play performance meant they had to go through bracket play to secure their place in Call of Duty's only league tournament in 2019.
This, coupled with a top 12 finish at CWL Las Vegas, saw the organization takes steps to change their roster ahead of the start of the CWL Pro League, which kicks off on Monday, February 4.
100 Thieves signed Preston ‘Priestahh’ Grenier on loan from FaZe Clan for the entirety of the Pro League season, moving Fero into the substitute position on their roster amid rumors of failing to show up for scrims and a toxic attitude with his teammates, however no one from 100 Thieves has come out and made these claims.
Typing in the Twitch chat of Midnight's Dylan 'Envoy' Hannon, Henriquez stated that the rumors are not accurate, and shared an anecdote to explain that wasn’t intentionally missing scrims.
“We lost a match, so I went back to the hotel to change my pants,” wrote Henriquez in his chat. “On my way back to the venue, they were texting me about not being there to scrim, even though nobody told me we were going to scrim. This whole thing flying around about me being toxic and not showing up to scrims is just false, in my opinion.”
Fero also gave an update on his future in Call of Duty, stating: “My plan right now is to wait until March [for the transfer window] and try to get on a team. Besides that, I sit here and watch scrims until we play pick-up games at night.”
For 100 Thieves, their new look roster will head into the CWL Pro League hoping for much improved performances compared to their last two outings. The competition is set to kick off on February 4, and you can make sure you don't miss any of the action with our CWL Pro League viewing hub.
