During a recent Twitch stream, nadeshot spoke about CS:GO as a competitive title and the various hurdles organizations face when it comes to the game.

One of the top esports organizations from North America, 100 Thieves, has entered competitive CS:GO twice since 2017, only to step away from the game both times due to various reasons.

During a recent Twitch stream while interacting with his viewers, Matthew “nadeshot” Haag, founder and CEO of 100 Thieves, admitted that he would love being a part of CS:GO but the title has many hurdles that an organization needs to overcome.

The 30-year-old showed genuine interest towards re-entering CS:GO once again, while pointing out the various obstacles one needs to surpass in order to "manage and build a winning team".

Nadeshot admits that he would love 100 Thieves to compete in CS:GO - Could a possible re-entry be on the horizon?

100 Thieves has witnessed limited success when it comes to competitive CS:GO, having already stepped away from the game two times in the past. However, this has not wavered nadeshot's desire for the organization to have a presence in the Valve title.

"I would always love to be a part of CS:GO, it is just a really hard game to manage and build a winning team," said Nadeshot during a recent broadcast while engaging with his viewers, "If I had it my way, we (100 Thieves) would have a CS:GO team today."

Having expressed his personal opinion, nadeshot went on to present some facts about what an organization has to deal with in order for it to enjoy success in the game.

"I love the game, I love the community, I love the rivalry, I love the history of the game. I think it’s incredible to watch, even if you don’t play it. But it’s very expensive, it’s really hard to build a winning team, it takes a lot of time, it takes the right combination of players. There are a lot of hurdles there," explained nadeshot, extending his respect towards other organizations that have made it work in CS:GO.

Having presented his take on CS:GO as a competitive title and views on whether he is interested in returning back to the title, nadeshot went on to urge the community to purchase stickers and extend support towards their favorite team in case they were competing at the Major.

"So if you are supporting teams that are playing in the Majors make sure you buy those stickers because teams really need that money," said nadeshot.

The future of 100 Thieves in CS:GO remains uncertain and no promises of any kind were made by nadeshot about a potential return anytime soon. He did not even drop any hints or tease a comeback but just provided his two cents on the topic and explained his current stance towards the title.
