Having been around the online gaming and content creation communities for a very long time, NoahJ456 has seen his popularity rise even further in the past year with the emergence of the massively popular game Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Although 100 Thieves has been heavily involved in esports with its successful League of Legends pro team and its recently unveiled pro Fortnite roster, this announcement marks the first time a major content creator has joined the org since Twitch streamer Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff joined in 2016.
Judging by the popularity of his content, eccentric and positive personality, and strong Fortnite ability, NoahJ456 looks to be a sure-fire addition for one of the most popular organizations in esports.
