Nadeshot Drops Another Teaser About a Potential 100 Thieves Black Ops 4 Roster

Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has dropped yet another major hint about 100 Thieves entering the Call of Duty esports scene for the Black Ops 4 season.

The former professional CoD player has been following the 2018 CWL World Championship and took to Twitter after his former team OpTic’s shocking group stage elimination.

After saying that Seth ‘Scump’ Abner and Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter are still two of the three best players “to ever touch Call of Duty”, Nadeshot also pointed out that OpTic was actually trending on Twitter in the United States.

Moments later he made another post, saying “The 100 Thieves Call of Duty team for Black Ops 4 is about to be WILD”.


Naturally this had the intended impact as competitive Call of Duty fans immediately started to speculate about 100 Thieves picking up one or more of OpTic’s legendary players.

Nadeshot has made it clear in the past that he would be interested in signing one of the players that helped OpTic win the 2017 World Championship, including Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and the currently inactive Damon ‘Karma’ Barlow.

However, it seems unlikely that anything is currently in the works as the focus of most players and organizations in recent months has been on the CWL Pro League and CoD Champs.

There’s no denying the fact that Nadeshot is often thinking one step ahead of his competition, though, so you can almost guarantee that the 100 Thieves owner has already started putting serious thought into a potential Black Ops 4 take over.

Yet another well timed Tweet from competitive Call of Duty’s original king of social media.

2021 CDL Challengers info announced: Scouting & Elite Series

The Call of Duty League has announced all-new details for upcoming 2021 Challengers events, and there will be even more ways for up and coming players to show their stuff.

Call of Duty Challengers is the official “path to pro” circuit for amateur CoD esports players around the world, and there are two brand new events being added to the circuit in 2021 – the Scouting Series and Challengers Elite.

The 2019 season wrapped up in August with the $500k finals crowning the top teams in North America, Europe and Asia. Once again, players looking for their big break are eagerly awaiting the next opportunity.

They won’t have to be patient for very long either, with the first new Challengers event kicking off just a couple of weeks at the time of writing, in early December with the Scouting Series.

This Series will bring together CDL coaches to draft their own squads from one big pool of all the players that secure an invite. These teams will be split up into EU and NA competitions and will play against teams from their region over the course of the four-day tournament.

Elite is the second new event, and will put the top amateur teams from Challengers into an exclusive bracket to battle it out, sometime “over the course of the 2021 Season.”

Challengers Cups were first introduced in 2019 and will be returning in 2021 as well. These will be standalone tournaments  players across North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region. Through the Cups and the competitive Ladder, players can earn Challengers points which are used to qualify and seed teams for various events throughout the season.
