We have seen 100 Thieves criticized several times for their performances, with the community seeing Spencer "Hiko" Martin as the star of the team and often demanded to carry them to victory and out of sticky situations. Fans of the organization are waiting for roster changes or any decisions to be made to the VALORANT roster to turn this around. However, 100 Thieves have been struggling in games outside of Riot Games’ tactical shooter as well, and the organization’s owner and founder Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag commented on the upcoming period for their esports rosters.
Nadeshot addressed the comments directed towards him that he “doesn't care" about the organization’s results in various titles. He is already looking for ways to improve their performances, and they are definitely not afraid of changing things up as we saw with their League of Legends team benching their jungler, William “Meteos" Hartman, three weeks into the Summer Split. This probably indicates that if the VALORANT roster continues to get knocked out of the group stages, as they did in FaZe Clan VALORANT Invitational and PAX Arena VALORANT Invitational, it won’t be long until we see considerable changes being made.
“I don’t think people really understand the position 100 Thieves is in in esports. It’s one thing to say that our teams aren’t playing well — I agree with that. We haven’t found a ton of success in esports aside from our Call of Duty team.”
“I’m not happy that we’re losing. I’m not, and I’m going to do something about it. We are taking steps to improve and hopefully win one day. I just think it’s unfair that people say we don’t care because the employees that work for 100 Thieves every single day, they live and breathe this brand.”
“I’m not happy with the results, but the problem I have is when people say that we’re not trying to get better. I promise that you are not alone in the frustrations you have with 100 Thieves in esports. You can say that you are frustrated with us not winning, but you can’t say that…we don’t care,” stated Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag during his Twitch stream on August 10th, 2020.
Nadeshot called for 100 Thieves fans to take into consideration the organization’s young history so far, being only founded three years ago. This mainly contributes to the stability of your rosters, which eventually leads to domestic and international dominance, similar to the likes of G2 Esports and TSM.
What do you think 100 Thieves’ VALORANT roster needs to change to start winning? Do you believe sticking to the current squad and building long-term chemistry is more valuable? Let us know your thoughts in the comments down below!
