100 THIEVES RECEIVE BACKLASH AFTER LAUNCHING LCS CHAMPIONSHIP NFT

WHAT HAPPENED?

Back in the summer of 2021, 100 Thieves took the championship trophy during LCS 2021, defeating Team Liquid in the process.

To share the celebration with fans all around the world, the company has released free special edition NFTs displaying the design of the chains gifted to their players.

We just had the players in the same room I’m sitting in, and we gifted them a diamond chain… I also wanted to give our community an opportunity to feel that same sense of pride.

Since 100 Thieves revealed their completely free-to-mint, Polygon-based NFT, fans began to complain about their use of the blockchain.

One person replied to the tweet: “So… it’s a free NFT. FFS, Nade. Not you too, man. Got us excited for no reason.”
