North American esports organization 100 Thieves have added to prominent names to their Fortnite Battle Royale professional roster.
The org announced on February 21 that they’ve officially signed pro Fortnite players Davis ‘Ceice’ McClellan and Hayden ‘Elevate’ Krueger.
“This year, we’re making a resurgence into competitive Fortnite,” 100 Thieves tweeted out. “Welcome Ceice and Elevate to 100 Thieves!”
Effective immediately, the pair will be joining a team that already features three well-established competitive players – Kenith, Parallax, and SirDimetrious.
Prior to joining 100 Thieves, both Ceice and Elevate had considerable professional experience in competitive Fortnite as members of other orgs.
Ceice, a former member of Gankstars, was able to qualify for several major Solos tournaments, including the Summer Skirmish grand finals, Winter Royale grand finals, and Secret Skirmish, pl;acing 16th, 13th, and 34th respectively.
The two are, of course, very familiar with each other, having played together and placed first at the recent WSOE 3 Duos tournament. The pair also teamed up for the grand finals of the Fall Skimish series, placing 46th.
100 Thieves will hope that this new injection of talent will lift their pro team to greater heights within competitive Fortnite, as things have stagnated as of late.
Although their roster did have respectable talent, it never come close to the firepower that the likes of Ghost Gaming, FaZe Clan, and Team Liquid can boast.
In fact, their most successful competitive player thus far has been content creator Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff, who technically isn’t even on the pro roster.
However, with 100T pledging to make a “resurgence” into competitive Fortnite, fans have something to look forward to, and bringing on the two players they’ve signed is a huge first step.
