Nadeshot’s unveiling of the impressive new 100 Thieves’ facility on July 17 caught the attention of none other than popular music star Drake.

There were a ton of reactions on social media to the new 100 Thieves facility in Los Angeles when it was revealed by Nadeshot on Wednesday.

The 15,000 square foot facility will serve as a home base for 100 Thieves various esports teams and creators when it’s completed.

100 Thieves bossed up

Among the people psyched for 100 Thieves new digs was none other than Drake, who’s put a substantial amount of cash into the organization and is one of their biggest supporters.

“Jeeeeeez this guy bossed up on the whole Instagram today,” Drizzy commented on Nadeshot’s video tour of the new space.

Besides providing a space for esports and creators, the facility will also serve as a shop for it’s successful clothing line, whose most recent drop generated over $500,000 of revenue in under 5 minutes.

As we mentioned earlier, Drake should probably be interested in 100 Thieves, since he was one of the first to contribute to 100 Thieves’ Series A funding round back in October 2018.

Now, 100 Thieves have continued their rapid expansion with a $35 million Series B funding round and a shiny new building to go along with it.

100 Thieves’ plans for CWL franchising

When asked about the possibility of seeing 100 Thieves in the upcoming city-based franchise league for Call of Duty, Nadeshot said “we’re definitely still thinking through it,” in a July 16 interview with Forbes.

After winning first in two of the four major tournaments this season, 100 Thieves won the CWL events in London and Anaheim back-to-back, and are one of the favorites to win both CWL Finals and Champs – two of the biggest competitions this season.

Whatever course of action 100 thieves decides to take, at least they’ll have Drake rooting for them in their corner.

World of Warcraft Shadowlands finally arrived on November 23 and while one Twitch streamer drove home far too fast to load it up with friends, the Police officer who stopped them completely understood. 

As many members of the community will know, the game’s latest expansion will bring together loads of new and returning players for an all-new story. There’s Covenants to mess around with, new quests to try out, and many will have been rushing home to play it after work.

Though, speeding is against the highway code and by driving too fast you are putting others in danger – which meant one streamer was unfortunately told to pull over by the Cops.

Usually, this would lead to a speeding ticket, but after explaining their reason for going too fast – to get home and throw Shadowlands on – the officer came in clutch and decided to turn a blind eye in what was quite a remarkable story.

Shadowlands is finally here and some are getting a bit to exicted.

Shadowlands saves Twitch streamer a speeding ticket

On release day, streamer bbnogames was already playing Shadowlands when his friend called, who presumably also streams with him.

They said: “Bro, hahaha. The Cop was like ‘yo, you know how fast you were going?’ I’m like dude I’m so sorry, this game is dropping soon, all my friends are waiting for me.

“He’s like ‘Shadowlands?’ And I’m like yeah, and he’s like OK go!”

 

After that, he said he was just five minutes away and eventually joined the team playing online. After that remarkable exchange with the Police officer, things went without a hitch, when really he could have been left with a hefty ticket to pay for his troubles.

Instead, they were able to link up together later in the night and jump into World of Warcraft’s latest expansion. Maybe next time, he won’t be so lucky.
