OKbet Games | Why did 100 Thieves not sign “yay”? Nadeshot talks out about incorporating cryocells into the lineup
When former XSET star duelist/Chamber Matthew “Cryocells” Panganiban was signed to replace William “Will” Cheng, 100 Thieves, one of the five North American teams who formed the Americas alliance in VALORANT, became the first organization to make a blockbuster signing.
Memories after Cryocells’ signing was made official, 100 Thieves CEO Matthew “Nadeshog” Haag revealed on a live stream that his organization considered signing OpTic Gaming superstar Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker for 2023, but Cryocells was ultimately chosen because he is the “best fit” for the squad led by Brenden “stellar” McGrath.
“At the end of the day,” Nadeshot added, “I believe everyone would agree that Yay is definitely the greatest player in the world, if not one of the best.” “Anyone would be foolish not to consider Yay for their team.” It wasn’t about money, and it wasn’t about finding common ground in the concept of working together. We just believe that Cryo is the greatest match for the remainder of the crew at this time.”
Nadeshot continued by claiming that yay is essentially Michael Jordan in post-partnership free agency.
“Yay in the off-season is essentially banging Michael Jordan,” Nadeshot said. “This man has dominated Valorant for the previous two years, and I believe any club who gets Yay will be extremely satisfied with their investment.” And if Cryo hadn’t been the greatest match for 100 Thieves, I would have leaped at the chance to work with them.” Wanna know more regard
100 Thieves didn’t sign yay
While many in the community disagree with Nadeshot, the 100 Thieves crew, which includes head coach Sean Gares, assistant coach Michael “Mikes” Hockom, and general manager Daniel “ddk” Kapadia, has placed 100T back on the map with their mindset after signing in March 2022.
Yay has been a restricted free agent since OpTic failed to qualify for the franchised league and is on his way to join with Cloud9, according to OKbet Sportsbook/ OKbet Games.
