Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag, renowned for his role on OpTic Gaming, has officially announced his own professional gaming organisation, Hundred Thieves.
The origins and reasoning behind the name, Hundred Thieves, is explained in the video below, with Nadeshot stating that it’s a symbolic term for “people hustling to do better for themselves,” a personal trait he has lived by and inherited from his father and grandfather.
Nadeshot has become a household name in eSports, especially within the Call of Duty community, which he looks to continue, as he also announced his organisation first acquisition, King Papey, an upcoming CoD team, who recently qualified for Stage Two of the 2016 COD World League North American Pro Division.
In his YouTube announcement, Nadeshot explained that King Papey is the first of many teams, as he plans to expand Hundred Thieves well beyond Call of Duty. Counter Strike: Global Offensive, League of Legends and Dota 2 were listed as possible eSports ventures for his organisation.
Nadeshot has served as co-owner of the OpTic Gaming professional organisation with OpTic H3cz, but in the video he explained that his future involvement with OpTic is unclear.
Within less than 15 hours of his video announcement and social posts, the official Hundred Thieves Twitter account has reached over 60,000 followers.
The first match for 100 Thieves Call of Duty team will be against Team SoloMid in their CWL match at 2pm PDT.
