100 Thieves Make Changes before Pro League starts

100 Thieves Make Changes before Pro League starts

100 thieves cod roster change 2019

I think it’s fair to say that the 100 Thieves Call of Duty roster haven’t managed to live up to the hype that erupted when they were announced. With a lacklustre performance at CWL Vegas and then having a shaky start at the Pro League Qualifiers, many questions were being asked about the roster’s future.

Acquiring Priestahh

With the transfer deadline looming, 100 Thieves made their first announcement yesterday evening. They have signed Priestahh on loan from Faze for the remainder of the 2019 season, this being a good move for both parties following Faze failing to make the Pro League.

For Priestahh to be able to slot into the team, it meant one player had to be benched. Over the past month, there had been discussions about who would be benched, with the most common solutions appearing to be Fero or Kenny.

Fero or Kenny to be benched

Fero had been performing better statistically but was having major chemistry clashes with others in the roster and at times didn’t seem to take things seriously. Meanwhile Kenny went from being an MVP last season to struggling to find his rhythm on the new game.

Kenny will be transitioning to a new role in the team following this roster change which they believe will allow him to reach his true potential. Many seem to think Fero’s benching is unfair due to his quality, but others believe he needed to understand things wouldn’t be handed to him on a plate.

They finally have a coach

Coaches have become ripe again in Call of Duty this past year, so it was a surprise to many fans that 100 Thieves hadn’t acquired one for the start of the 2019 season. Last night this situation was rectified, as they announced the signing of World Champion Crowder (formally known as Replays) who will also be joining them on loan from Faze and filling the position of coach.

Reaction

The reactions have been mixed amongst players and fans. These changes highlight the lack of job security pro players have, which is something that will need to be heavily focused on in the future. All in all, these changes should improve the 100 Thieves team and it will be interesting to see how they perform in the Pro League.
