For weeks CouRage has been at the center of rumors and leaks that only intensified when Nick 'NICKMERCS' Kolcheff made a surprise exit from skyrocketing esports organization 100 Thieves.
But all rumors were finally put to rest when longtime friends CouRage and Mathew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag announced that the popular streamer would be joining the Thieves’ ranks and officially moving into the team house in Los Angeles.
In a hilarious 12-minute mockumentary style video, the org filled with content creators pulled out all the stops by ‘documenting’ the weeks leading up to CouRage’s signing with the org.
“Ladies and gentlemen,” CouRage said. “We are live and oh my god what am I wearing?!... Ladies and Gentlemen, I have joined 100 Thieves… Nadeshot and Rae aren’t kicking my fat ass out of here.”
After the announcement video, CouRage revealed a slew of designs for his new era with the 100 Thieves organization that included graphics in partnership with the Visuals by Impulse team, new merch, and a complete rebrand for the star Fortnite Battle Royal streamer.
Nadeshot expressed his excitement for CouRage joining the stream team for the Thieves, saying: “I can’t picture 100 Thieves without CouRage.”
There have been mounds of speculation prior to CouRage signing with 100 Thieves that blew the lid wide open before the official announcement.
While CouRage had been playing off his “apartment search,” it was just a ruse to conceal that he was moving into and finalizing his transition to the 100 Thieves.
In the past, CouRage’s announcement was dangerously close to being leaked beforehand, notably by Twitch star Tyler ‘Ninja” Blevins.
During Ninja’s May 24 stream, the world’s most famous gamer let out a bit too much from his friend’s future plans at the time.
“NICKMERCS is a little bit bigger than CouRage," Ninja said. "But CouRage recently signed with 100 Thieves, clearly, I don't think Jack would do that if it wasn't a great org with great contracts.”
But now that the ink has dried and videos have been uploaded, 100 Thieves and CouRage are hyped to see what the partnership will bring.
