100 Thieves CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has accidentally revealed who Luminosity Gaming are aiming to pick up as their fifth for the upcoming Black Ops 4 season.
News broke out on October 11 that Jordan ‘JKap’ Kaplan had been dropped by LG to join eUnited, meaning that LG would still need one more player to complete their five-man roster, despite having already acquired Gunless the day before.
According to Nadeshot, he will be replaced by former EnVy player Nicholas ‘Classic’ DiCostanzo, which falls in line with recent rumors and speculation.
“JKap’s just a great teammate, and he’s really experienced. I think that was a mistake. I think JKap’s better than Classic,” he said live on stream. “I was really surprised by that decision.”
It’s clear that Nadeshot did not know that the acquisition of Classic had not yet been officially confirmed, as his chat was frantically spamming about the leak.
Nadeshot did not stop there, as he went on to roast LG for apparently mishandling their roster situation concerning JKap, as well as not replying to inquiries 100 Thieves had made about the player.
“They did JKap dirty. LG, they did not handle that properly. We were interested in JKap, and for two months, JKap was trying to get answers from LG,” he revealed. “I tried contacting LG a couple of times as well. They pretty much ignored JKap and myself, and I just don’t think they handled that properly.”
In the grand scheme of things, Nadeshot’s leak isn’t too groundbreaking, considering that most of the community already had a hunch that Classic was moving to LG.
However, his hot take on LG’s handling of their CoD roster is definitely something worth noting.
