100 Thieves Signs New Competitive Apex Legends Roster
Apex Legends’ competitive scene saw the return of 100 Thieves, one of the biggest gaming organizations in the world. The organisation signed Brendan “Onmuu” Pode, Nicholas “Vein” Hobbs, and Alex “scuwry” Scala, the reigning Apex Legends Global Series Championship (ALGS) North American (NA) champions to their competitive Apex Legends roster. All three players were previously signed to Kungarna NA. The trio had won the recent Box Fight Championship - Apex Cup and beat out top teams like TSM to win ALGS NA in June 2021. 100 Thieves was one of the first teams to form an Apex Legends roster in 2019. However, the organisation later parted ways with the squad after they failed to secure top finishes in major tournaments.
100 Thieves dives back into Apex Legends
100 Thieves signed on a three-person Apex roster back in February 2019 consisting of Connor “Gigz” White, Justin “Teenage” Phipps and Isiaih “Lifted” Slowik. Justin “JP2” Pate was later signed in April 2019. While Gigz was retained, the organisation dropped the rest of the squad after a poor showing in FACEIT Pro Series and UMG Legends Series. The team’s one notable achievement was placing second in the Rivalcade Apex Legends August Rumble in 2019.
100 Thieves’ current Apex roster has previously played for Kungarna NA, Noble White and Altiora Esports. The new roster is set to compete in the upcoming NA ALGS Pro League. The North American ALGS Pro League will begin on 26th October 2021 and see 40 teams compete for a spot in the Playoffs for a prize pool of $125,000 USD. Here the 100 Thieves Apex Legends roster will have to face off against top teams like TSM, Team Liquid and Spacestation Gaming. This is 100 Thieves’ second major investment since they decided to return to EA's battle royale, the first one being the signing of NiceWigg as a content creator in September 2021.
