A brief exchange with MLG’s Adam Apicella suggests that Nadeshot is weighing up a return to a more direct role for CoD:WWII — as either a player or caster.
A Tweet by Apicella on his excitement to be staging Call of Duty esports events received a response from the 100Thieves owner asking whether he should compete or provide expertise as a commentator.
An emphatic reply by Apicella stated that he’d happily hire Nadeshot for a role behind the desk “tomorrow”.
Damn so much pressure
You’re welcome on both! I’d love you on the sticks but I’ll hire you tomorrow to be on the desk

Nadeshot recently offered eUnited’s Clayster a spot on 100Thieves in time for WWII, but it was unclear as to whether that would trigger Nadeshot’s return to competing or if the move was simply to make a world class signing to lead a new iteration of the team.
His follow-up to that suggested that a competitive return would be all but certain if Clayster were to join him for the new season.
A Dexerto poll revealed that 55% of voters believed that Clayster should make the switch.
With 4 million subscribers across two channels, the YouTube star commands legions of fans many of which previously tuned in exclusively to watch Nadeshot play during his competitive tenure.
A championship-laden record, including an X Games gold medal and MLG titles, culminated in his retirement following OpTic Gaming’s exit from the 2015 Call of Duty Championship.
Would you prefer to see @Nadeshot return as a player or caster?
