100 Thieves CEO Matt ‘Nadeshot’ Haag has told his Fortnite team to stop complaining on social media.
Nadeshot was making an appearance on OpTic H3CZ’s new podcast when the pair began to discuss the difficulties they sometimes face trying to manage professional players.
“Some of these guys are idiots.” commented Nadeshot. “I love them to death, but they do some dumb shit man.”
“I love our Fortnite guys, they are incredibly talented, but all they do is complain on social media. Parallax, Kenneth, Risker and SirDimetrious, I love those guys, they’re great people” continued Haag.
“But I’ve said it them over and over and over, the reason why you’re not getting invited to these Summer Skirmishes is because all you do is complain about the game on social media.”
Nadeshot did have some sympathy for the situation, but still thinks the squad needs to be smarter, saying; “I get it. I’ve been in that place before, I used to do it all the time. But Epic Games is literally deciding by going up and down a list and saying “we want them in our tournament””.
“Guys, we’re paying you really, really well. You’re part of 100 Thieves” concluded Nadeshot, “Just don’t tweet about it!”
While the 100 Thieves pro team haven’t been invited to compete in the Fortnite Fall Skirmish, it’s clear that they are one of the best squads in the world. Recently, they broke the world record for most kills in a squad game, showcasing their incredible talent.
Whether they can ease off on the social media complaining, however, remains to be seen.
