Nadeshot Hints at Which Pro Player He Wants Running the 100 Thieves CoD Team

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?

NICKMERCS rates the best Warzone players from to Scump to HusKerrs

Tasked with drafting a team for a Call of Duty: Warzone tournament, NICKMERCS went through some of the game’s biggest names, ranking them while determining who he would most want to duo with.

To start Davis ‘Hitch’ Edwards’ $10,000 “Cracked Creators” Warzone tournament, 16 creators were tasked with drafting their duo from 16 “cracked” streamers.

As one of the creators allowed to select their tandem, NICKMERCS sifted through 16 of the game’s best to determine who he would prefer to play with.

Ultimately, the FaZe streamer ended up putting his decision to a poll among his fans. But, before doing so, he originally went through all 16 and gave thoughts on how each of them ranks. And the options were varied, but all shared one thing in common: talent.

With professional Call of Duty League players like Matthew ‘FormaL’ Piper and Seth ‘Scump’ Abner available, as well as Warzone streamers like Aydan and HusKerrs, the candidates were excellent. Still, NICKMERCS sifted through and broke down who he truly believes ranks as the battle royale’s best.

Segment begins at 00:20:45.

NICKMERCS starts by going through the list and just expressing what an absolute struggle it will be to pick from such a talented crop of peers: “Oh, it’s going to be so hard to pick man … No matter what, everybody that I would pick from is cracked.” But, after going through and complimenting practically everybody, he starts the process of elimination.

Since Nick chooses second after DrDisrespect, he immediately eliminates Zlaner as Doc’s likely first pick. Then, he eliminates JoeWo with two simple reasons: “I’ve never played with him and every time I play against him, I beat that little ass.”

Then, BobbyPoff is gone: “BobbyPoff, I love the guy, but take him off the list.” And the “Scarf Lord” is followed quickly by the Chicago Huntsmen’s FormaL and Scump: “Love ‘em, love ‘em. But I feel like there’s better BR players.” After that, things start getting complicated.

Similar to Zlaner, Nick decides to sacrifice Merk so that he can play with his longtime duo, Maven. Then, recognizing that all of these remaining players are absolute menaces on Verdansk, he goes with two simple metrics to determine his personal preference. He immediately prioritizes controller players and the highest earners in Warzone tournaments.

That eliminates stars like HusKerrs and Symfuhny for their mouse and keyboard usage, while also eliminating Crowder and DougIsRaw for their low earnings. Finally, he eliminates Jukeyz because of his struggles understanding the UK maestro’s accent and decides to put the decision to a poll.

 

Ultimately, it’s between Aydan and Tommey, with Cloakzy popping on to let NICKMERCS know that Aydan’s been playing some Fortnite recently. That leaves the FaZe star choosing Tommey, noting that “he’s got great communication, phenomenal player, guaranteed to get some chopper kills off rip.”

Despite going through full rankings for his options and landing upon an excellent duo, the decision-making process proved to be futile. NICKMERCS and Tommey could only end in the Top 12 for the tournament, while the easily dismissed BobbyPoff actually came in first place.
