100 Thieves releases Apex Legends roster

North American esports organization and lifestyle brand 100 Thieves released its Apex Legends roster. Two of the players which included Justin “Teenage” Phipps and Isiaih “Lifted” Slowik, joined in February of this year. Justin “JP2” Pate joined in April.

While 100 Thieves was one of the first organizations to enter Apex Legends by fielding a roster, it did not perform as well in competitions. Throughout all of the UMG Legends, Strong Esports, and FACEIT Pro Series tournaments that the roster participated in, the trio of players failed to find much success. Other than the most recent Rivalcade Apex Legends August Rumble where the team placed 2nd and won $1,500, the team did not earn any prize winnings from other events.

The roster finished in 10th place during the FACEIT Pro Series, an event that lasted eight weeks with 20 selected pro teams. Other events usually ended with the 100 Thieves roster finishing in the bottom half as well. Similar organizations like Cloud9 and Immortals that also achieved lackluster results, released their Apex Legends rosters earlier this month. Besides, Apex Legends viewership has decreased substantially.

It only seems to have decent viewership on Twitch. When there is a tournament going on or while a huge streamer is promoting the game, numbers are solid.

100 Thieves did not provide any statement attached to the release of the roster. The team simply wished all three players the best for “future endeavors”. Some fans commented about how another one of the Apex Legends players who joined as a content creator remained. This was speculated to be most likely because he contributed to the organization’s brand through content creation. This is compared to the professional players who did not upload much other than stream highlights.

Respawn Entertainment and EA have recently announced two of the largest Apex Legends esports tournaments. The Apex Legends Preseason Invitational and Twitch Rivals TwitchCon San Diego tournaments both have a $500,000 prize pool each. This may seem like not much compared to tournaments in other esports leagues, but it is massive in the Apex Legends professional scene. 100 Thieves also added a CS:GO Roster in September 2019.
