Things have gotten a bit hectic on social media after 100 Thieves' pro Call of Duty announced their major roster move on January 28.
The move saw the org acquire former FaZe Clan player Preston 'Priestahh' Greiner on loan and move Maurice 'Fero' Henriquez to the substitute role, effectively taking him out of the starting squad for the upcoming CWL Pro League.
The move had many fellow pro CoD players perplexed on Twitter, including the likes of eUnited's James 'Clayster' Eubanks, who publicly questioned the move in a debate with 100T CEO Matt 'Nadeshot' Haag.
Their debate apparently struck the nerve of 100T player Kenny 'Kenny' Williams, who hit out at Clayster and accused him of "loving drama" and "being a female" in a now-deleted tweet.
This sparked a war of words between Kenny and Clayster as the two pro player went back and forth on Twitter in what eventually became a heated argument.
As he explained in the tweet above and in his debate with Nadeshot, Clayster's main contention with this whole situation is that, from the outside looking in, it would appear that 100 Thieves have dropped Fero from their main roster just to help improve the struggling Kenny, despite the fact that Fero's play had been satisfactory and was a big reason why the team had qualified for the Pro League.
Kenny did not approve of the rhetoric that Clayster was pushing, however, and the two wrapped up their argument by agreeing to disagree, to put it in mild terms.
Clayster was not the only one publicly questioning this roster move; other prominent veterans such as eUnited's Jordan 'JKap' Kaplan and Envy's Patrick 'ACHES' Price were also uncertain about the whole thing.
Nobody even thinks Fero is a bad player but he was just the odd man out on a super talented yet underperforming roster that needed a change— Jordan Kaplan (@JKap415) January 28, 2019
When you should probably be 3rd in line to get dropped but go 1st <<— Patrick Price (@ACHES) January 28, 2019
Pro players turned analysts Anthony 'NAMELESS' Wheeler and Johnathan 'Pacman' Tucker were bit more understanding of the two sides' perspectives, but did feel as though Fero deserved to be in a better situation team-wise heading into the Pro League.
The 100T roster situation is a tough one. One on hand, they all qualified and did their job. On another they needed a change so someone was getting screwed. Tough decisions as a team/team owner. Can't really fault them.— Anthony Wheeler (@NAMELESS) January 28, 2019
@f3rocitys Someone will pick you up. If not, they're stupid. Head up my dude ❤️— Anthony Wheeler (@NAMELESS) January 28, 2019
Fero wasn’t 100Ts worst player but the move had to be made for he or Kenny for the greater good of the team. Going to be interesting during the player movement period to see how things shake up— Jonathan Tucker (@PacmanJT) January 28, 2019
