100 Thieves skips Call of Duty World League: "A Risk We Can't Take Right Now"

Today, Matthew "Nadeshot" Haag, former professional Call of Duty Player and owner of entertainment, esports, and apparel company 100 Thieves, announced on Twitter that 100 Thieves will not be participating in the Call of Duty World League.

Citing it as a risk the company isn't prepared to take and explaining multiple reasons as to why a franchise model based on regional teams possible won't allow the 100 Thieves brand to remain authentic and autonomous, Nadeshot made it clear that he is "bummed, sad and upset" about the decision.

"It is a shitty situation...no other way to put it"



Visible upset, Nadeshot concluded that although his passion for Call of Duty hasn't waned, "at the end of the day, there is just too many careers, too much money, and too much passion at stake". Having successfully raised $35 billion dollars in series B funding, 100 Thieves is expanding greatly and Nadeshot mentions his new influx of staff and responsibility as a reason the Call of Duty World League won't include 100 Thieves.

Considering how popular the 100 Thieves team is in the world of Call of Duty, this can only be considered a blow for the Call of Duty World League and the public perception of it.
