100 Thieves lifted their first major trophy as an organization following their win over eUnited at CWL London, and owner Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag was eager to reward his team’s hard work.
Despite losing against OpTic Gaming in pool play, 100T were on fire in the winners bracket – knocking out eUnited and Gen.G before beating OpTic in a rematch to reach their first ever grand finals.
They were faced with another similar foe in the form of eUnited but 100 Thieves couldn’t be stopped – winning the series 3-1 to land their first major tournament victory as an organization – which almost made Nadeshot pass out while celebrating.
Much of their success can be benefitted to Sam ‘Octane’ Lerew who was rightly named MVP following a superb performance, ending the event with a K/D of 1.27.
Nadeshot, who enjoyed plenty of success during his time as a pro player, was quick to reward his team’s efforts after they returned home with a trophy in hand, purchasing a bag full of expensive Louis Vuitton gifts for them to enjoy.
Despite not being present in the picture after staying a few extra days in London following the tournament, the former OpTic player confirmed that Kenny ‘Kenny’ Williams would also be receiving a bag full of presents via mail.
Of course, the gifts from Nadeshot are not the only benefits of the team's first big tournament win as a squad - the first place prize of $125,000 helps too.
While the gifts will undoubtedly be another significant boost to the team’s morale, the focus will now turn to perfecting their game ahead of the next major event, CWL Anaheim, will takes place June 14-16 in California.
Should the team reign victorious again, Nadeshot might take them for yet another spending spree to celebrate.
