100 Thieves owner, Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag, has made no secret about his desire for his organization to get involved with Call of Duty.
The former CoD champion started out his esports career on the title back in 2009 and retired in 2015 following OpTic Gaming’s 7th place finish at the Advanced Warfare world championships.
After leaving to pursue his YouTube and streaming career, he stepped back into the competitive gaming business with 100 Thieves during the Black Ops 3 season.
That project only lasted one Stage of the CWL Pro League before it was abandoned, but in late 2017 the 100T name returned with a bang, securing a spot in the NA LCS with the backing of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
It’s widely known that prior to the NA LCS deal going through that Nadeshot was set to make a competitive return for Call of Duty WWII, with a lineup that featured a number of up and coming players.
Nadeshot has now confirmed that one of those players, Maurice ‘Fero’ Henriquez, holds the key to the organization returning to the scene.
Fero rose to prominence during the WWII season and eventually secured his first title win when Team Kaliber won the CWL Pro League Stage 2 finals on Sunday, July 29.
There have been a number of public disputes between the players and the tK organization prior to the win, including Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams claiming they are paid a lower salary than other CWL teams. Could this latest development indicate that the side will leave for 100 Thieves when Black Ops 4 is released in October?
