100 Thieves fans have been eagerly waiting to see a CS:GO lineup of the organization. Back in July, the organization claimed that they are looking for a CS:GO team and they have been since then on the search for it. And now, they have finally acquired a very amazing lineup.
100 Thieves’ New CS:GO Team
That’s right, 100 Thieves now finally has a CS:GO lineup. Actually, the organization has decided to acquire the lineup of Renegades. The lineup includes Aaron “AZR” War, Justin “jks” Savage, Sean “Gratisfaction” Kiwai, Joakim “Jkaem” Myrbostad, and Jay “liazz” Tregillgas. This news was first announced by the official Twitter account of Renegades, but they later deleted the tweet. However, it was later officially confirmed by the official Twitter account of 100 Thieves.

For those who don’t know, the contracts of Renegades’ CS:GO players were scheduled to expire at the beginning of September. This is the very reason why we currently don’t know if 100 Thieves paid to acquire the roster or not. The roster isn’t the best team in the world, but they have been playing really well lately. During the last few tournaments, their performance was amazing. They managed to achieve the top-four place in both StarLaddern Berlin Major that was held in August and StarSeries i-League season eight that was held in October.
One Of The Longest-Standing Teams
In addition to this, they are also one of the longest-standing teams in the CS:GO scene. Most of the teams out there usually change their roster after a few months. However, these players have been playing together for more than a year since the addition of Gratisfaction and Liazz. The most interesting thing about this team is that they have one of the best CS:GO players in the world. That’s right, jks is regarded as one of the top players by many people. In addition to this, he was also one of the most consistent fraggers throughout 2019.
100 Thieves has been waiting to enter the CS:GO scene again since their first roster disbanded. Their first team was a Brazilian lineup that had some of the best players out there. However, one of their players Vito “kNgV” Giuseppe made some inappropriate comments about CS:GO analyst Duncan “Thorin” Shields, because of why 100 Thieves faced a huge PR crisis. The team then disbanded without even playing a single official match. Many fans were left disheartened after this happened because they wanted to see how far their favorite organization can go in CS:GO.
Now that they have acquired a new lineup, 100 Thieves is finally going to enter the CS:GO scene once again. Fans from all over the world are eagerly waiting to see how the team will perform under a new shade. The organization is also going to use this opportunity to expand its apparel brand to the Oceania market. On the other hand, Renegades has claimed that they are not going to quit CS:GO. It will be exciting to see which players the team is going to sign next.
