Following the sale of Infinite Esports and the OpTic brand, Jacob Toft-Andersen left OpTic Gaming, and was hired by 100 Thieves.

The dust is finally settling from all the drama surrounding OpTic Gaming and Infinite Esports’ sale to Immortals Gaming Club, and now major moves are being made.

This past Friday, June 14 was Toft-Andersen’s last day at Infinite Esports as he has now signed on with esports organization 100 Thieves, filling their role as VP of esports.

100 ThievesCouRage signed with 100 Thieves in May.

The news was announced by 100 Thieves on June 19 and he will become responsible for all of their competitive teams, including expansions into new titles.

This is just the latest string of high-profile signings from 100 Thieves as they continue to establish themselves as an esports powerhouse.

On June 14, just a few days ago, 100 Thieves announced the signing of The Mob, a group of four content creators who will be moving to Los Angeles to continue creating content for the organization. 

Before this signing, the team was able to sign a major Fortnite content creator Jack ‘CouRageJD’ Dunlop to the roster, a move that leaked ahead of time by Nadeshot himself but was still a major signing nonetheless.

naibuzzNICKMERCS and Nadeshot had a major falling out.

It hasn’t all been positive for 100 Thieves, however, as former member Nick ‘NICKMERCS‘ Kolcheff had a rocky exit from the organization, explaining how he wants “nothing to do” with 100 Thieves owner Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag following his departure.

“Him and I are not cool, we’ll never be cool,” he said. “I don’t want nothing to do with him, I’ll never do business with him, I’ll never sit down at a table with him ever again.”

To make the sting even worse, Nick signed with rival organization FaZe Clan, who were also making headlines following Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney’s lawsuit against the organization over an oppressive contract.

The lawsuit between Tfue and FaZe Clan is still ongoing.
