100 Thieves’ CoD player Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams explained how Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag recruited him to the roster, and why there’s no better person to run the organization.
Kenny moved from Team Kaliber to 100 Thieves following their second place finish at the 2018 World Championship, individually regarded as the best SMG player of the season.
His performances throughout what was his breakout season in the CWL earned him a call up from Nadeshot, who it had been known was looking to form a Call of Duty roster.
Kenny revealed on episode 4 of the CoD Blast podcast that almost immediately after the world championship, while he was still at the airport, he received a message from Nadeshot directly offering him a spot.
As a former professional CoD player, Nadeshot will know exactly what current players want from an organization, as Kenny explains “he just made me feel welcome, everything I wanted help with, like my brand, he wants to help me with that.”
Specifically, it wasn’t about money and salary, which Kenny says was a convincing factor for him, with the focus of conversation on his brand and how it could develop under 100 Thieves.
He also discusses what the full five man roster said to each other when they first came together, which included “we are the god squad.”
However, he was more cautious to lay out any big claims about the rosters potential as the next ‘dynasty’ in Call of Duty, but knows that if they “click”, they will be the best.
With 100 Thieves now also having the backing of Drake and Scooter Braun, in addition to investment from Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, the organization is well poised to be a fan favorite, especially in Call of Duty, given Nadeshot’s past.
