The Los Angeles based esports organization, 100 Thieves, is withdrawing from Counter-Strike according to a report from HLTV. This move would come just a year after signing their currently Australian lineup from Renegades.
The news comes just days after it was reported that Complexity were looking to acquire the services of Justin “jks” Savage from the organization.
This was 100 Thieves’ second attempt to join the fray of Counter-Strike and certainly went better than the first regardless of the outcome. Their first step into the space was the signing of the Brazilian lineup made up of the core of a strong former Immortals lineup featuring Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles, Henrique “HEN1” Teles and Vito “kNgV-” Giuseppe. Drama almost immediately forced the two parties to part ways before playing even one official match.
Their latest attempt seemed like a solid pick up and fit coming into 2020, however, a slump in form has seen the team move further away from the top level team they were intended to be when signed. Now with the lineup seemingly falling apart with the rumored departure of jks it seems their combined run will end.
It is unknown whether the remaining members of the roster will continue together or go their separate ways. It’s also possible they look into shifting over to Riot Games’ VALORANT as many other CS:GO professionals have done in recent times.
