Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow has commented on the possibility of him joining a future 100 Thieves Call of Duty team after Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag dropped a hint about the organization entering the scene.
Competitive Call of Duty fans around the world have been hoping to see 100 Thieves enter the scene ever since Nadeshot revived the esports organization in late 2017.
Once the face of competitive CoD and OpTic Gaming, Nadeshot retired from competing in 2015 after a disappointing run at the Call of Duty World Championship and would later leave the OpTic brand that he had been associated with for so long.
After some time away from the forefront of esports, Nadeshot bounced back in a big way when he secured a League of Legends NA LCS franchise and brought together a 100 Thieves squad that secured a second place finish in their first ever split.
Nadeshot isn’t stopping there, though. The YouTube sensation recently revealed that 100 Thieves will be entering the Fortnite Battle Royale scene and on May 31st, during a personal stream, he confirmed that there will also be a 100 Thieves Call of Duty team “this year”.
As with anything 100 Thieves related, Nadeshot’s statements immediately sparked a debate about who might join the team when it is formed.
One name at the top of many people’s list is former OpTic star Karma. When asked about that possibility, the three time World Champion stated that he would “consider it” if Nadeshot could get “good players”.
In previous discussions about a 100 Thieves CoD team, Nadeshot made it clear that he would want at least one member from the OpTic Gaming roster that won the 2017 World Championship.
This means that Karma would be on the shortlist along with Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper, Seth ‘Scump’ Abner, and Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter as the foundation of the roster.
Scump and Crimsix are the only members of the roster that are still playing under OpTic and FormaL recently signed with Luminosity Gaming so Karma would be the most eligible free agent.
However, it is altogether possible that Nadeshot has decided to wait until the release of the next Call of Duty title, Black Ops 4, before making a swoop for the players that he wants under the 100 Thieves umbrella.
