100 Thieves Shake Up Their League of Legends Roster With Big Trade

North American esports organization 100 Thieves has shaken up their League of Legends roster in a major way.

The top seeded team from the Spring Split has traded William ‘Meteos’ Hartman to Flyquest in exchange for Andy ‘AnDa’ Hoang.

100 Thieves finished first in the Spring Split before losing in the playoff Grand Finals against Team Liquid. It came as a shock when they came out of the gates with a disappointing 0-2 start to the Summer Split.

Meteos was at the heart of the issue in the Jungler role for the slow starting 100 Thieves squad, but they turned things around enough to beat Clutch and OpTic on the way to an undefeated Week 3 and a 4-2 record overall.

The uptick in performance was not enough to convince the team a change wasn’t needed however, and Meteos was the one to be moved.

Jacob Wolf of ESPN was first to break the trade, before Meteos himself confirmed the news with a tweet of his own. Meteos also stated he has no interest in playing for an academy team, so his future is still up in the air.

Flyquest’s lineup will be unchanged, since AnDa was an academy prospect for them. 100 Thieves, however, will need to replace the hole left by Meteos eventually.

For now, Levi will jump up from the academy to take on the Jungler spot. But with 100T making the move for AnDa with an eye on the future, he may find himself in the lineup soon.

100 Thieves will be in action next on July 14th when they take on Team SoloMid in Week 4 of the Summer Split, while FlyQuest, with or without Meteos, squares off against Cloud9.

Team Singularity have prematurely ended their partnership with merchandise supplier DashThreads due to “unprofessionalism.”

The Danish organization posted an announcement to explain why they were “officially parting ways” with the apparel company.

The org alleges that they were not able to produce marketing material over the past four months because products had not been delivered by DashThreads, subsequently they were not able to “execute on marketing plans.”

They stated that this wasn’t a decision made in the spur of the moment, it comes after months of trying to rectify the problems and get things on track. However, the “unprofessionalism shown by DashThreads and its CEO and owner Devin Fry” was too much to handle going forward.

Team Singularity recently sold their player Insight to Toronto Ultra.

Team Singularity are allegedly missing more than 300 units of clothing, that they had already paid for, which were supposed to go to their players, influencers, content creators, management, and fans.

The org stated that their legal team will be taking action against DashThreads as the partnership was “one-sided” and there are further instances of mistreatment that they won’t be making public knowledge.

“I’m very sad that my worst fears prior to entering this partnership earlier this year came true and I take full responsibility for a deal that should never been made in the first place,” said Singularity CEO Atle Stehouwer. “I will not beat myself up about giving people and startups a second chance, I am just sad that DashThreads and Devin Fry decided not to rise above previous accusations and prove that it was a legit startup. Actions speak louder than words.”

DashThreads predominantly work with amateur and semi-pro esports teams and describe themselves as a “premium esports and street apparel company.”

Dexerto has contacted DashThreads for comment on Team Singularity’s statement.
