100 Thieves set to leave CSGO

Fariha Bhatti • October 12, 15:40

According to a report from HLTV, 100 Thieves will release their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster after the reported departure of Justin “jks” Savage. The North American organization has yet to make a formal announcement about the teams’ future. 

CEO Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag’s 100 Thieves acquired its current roster from Renegades twelve months ago. During their tenure in 100 Thieves, the quintet has failed to deliver any noticeable performance. Their subpar history has excluded them from a spot in the top 10 rankings.

100T’s CSGO rosters have seen their fair share of rough days over the past several years. The organization debuted its CSGO division in 2017 with a roster acquired from Immortals. It disbanded soon after, with the Brazilian roster featuring Vito “kNgV-” Giuseppe under the 100 Thieves banner for a mere one and a half months. 

Afterward, the organization re-entered the scene through a deal with Australian organization Renegades with a roster that included jks, Joakim “jkaem” Myrbostad, Aaron “AZR” Ward, Jay “Liazz” Tregillgas, and Sean “Gratisfaction” Kaiwai. Under the 100T banner, the former Renegades squad failed to win any major titles despite extraordinary individual play and a coordinated game style. 

100 Thieves players in tough spot as more transfer rumors surface

The downfall of 100 Thieves seemed imminent when coach Chet “Chet” Singh left the team, forcing 100T to play out IEM New York 2020 on their own under AZR’s leadership. ImAPet’s decision to retire and pursue Valorant undoubtedly contributed to the team’s rumored decision. 

100 Thieves faced yet another loss soon after ImAPet’s departure when rumors began concerning Jks’s transfer to Complexity Gaming. Neither organization has commented on the rumors, but various sources confirm that team’s highest-rated player has already agreed in principle to a deal with Complexity.

This leaves the team with only four players, all of which are set to become free agents at the end of their contracts. Sources confirm that Jkaem already has various offers from different organizations.  With these changes, it is hard to say what 100 Thieves has planned for the future. but its recent high-profile Valorant signings signal the organization might switch lanes and invest more money and time on its Valorant division. 

100 Thieves is currently part owners of ESL Pro League and has a permanent spot in Blast Premier.  And despite having spots in several upcoming CSGO events, the rumors leave many questions unanswered about 100 Thieves’ future in CSGO.
