100 Thieves sign ImAPet

100 Thieves have announced the signing of former Evil Geniuses coach Chet "⁠Chet⁠" Singh.

The 23-year-old coach joins the Los Angeles-based organization less than two months after he parted ways with Evil Geniuses, where he had been relieved of his role in early April following fundamental disagreements with Peter "⁠stanislaw⁠" Jarguz and Tarik "⁠tarik⁠" Celik.

At the end of the month, 100 Thieves went on to announce the departure of their long-serving coach, Aleksandar "⁠kassad⁠" Trifunović, after he and the team drifted apart and their progress stagnated throughout 2020.

ImAPet finds a new home in 100 Thieves

Chet's addition will serve as an injection of some fresh blood into the Australian squad for the first time in over a year and a half, since kassad returned in late 2018 and the current lineup was formed with the arrival of Sean "⁠Gratisfaction⁠" Kaiwai and Jay "⁠Liazz⁠" Tregillgas when the squad still represented Renegades.

"Today starts a new chapter in my life. I was teamless in a pretty scary time, where Corona has pretty much limited a lot of CSGO opportunities and opportunities given weren’t exactly what I would call living up to my expectations," Chet said in a Twitlonger.

"Thankfully, I gave it enough time and didn’t sign my life away to Valorant and I was able to find a squad that I have a lot of faith in and they seem to have the same for me, so thank you 100 Thieves for the opportunity to let me jump back into competitive CS."

100 Thieves' roster is now:

Australia Aaron "⁠AZR⁠" Ward
Australia Justin "⁠jks⁠" Savage
Norway Joakim "⁠jkaem⁠" Myrbostad
Australia Jay "⁠Liazz⁠" Tregillgas
New Zealand Sean "⁠Gratisfaction⁠" Kaiwai

United States Chet "⁠Chet⁠" Singh (coach)

The new combination will attempt to turn things around after some shaky online results that have seen them place fifth and sixth in the North American divisions of ESL Pro League Season 11 and ESL One: Road to Rio, respectively. They will have a chance to do so in the ongoing DreamHack Masters Spring, whose Group B featuring 100 Thieves, Gen.G, Evil Geniuses, and Cloud9 kicks off on Monday.

The Australians' official debut with Chet will take place on Tuesday at 21:10 in a matchup against Damian "⁠daps⁠" Steele's team, followed by a meeting with Cloud9 on Thursday and the new coach's former organization on Friday at the same times.

He won’t, here’s why: Brehze, Cerq, and Ethan are the best players but too beta to be vocal This has caused the power shift to be in the hands of Tarik who has gotten daps cut and now Chet replaced. The team chemistry is now way too toxic. There’s only 1 fix really, and it’s for the main stars (namely brehze) to have to balls to find someone to replace Tarik and Stan. This would be my team in a perfect world - Stan + Alex/Dexter - Tarik + Floppy (prob would never happen tho, I’m willing to bet someone has approached him but either he or C9 declined) -Zews (stupid no brain) +Kassad

No its stan that made imApet leave because they did not have a good relationship he said himself its no secret that he and stan don't get along. Tarik did technically get daps out because he wanted stan in.
2020-05-28 12:56
I think they'll be more consistent and place deep often but they might be like the old Astralis and just choke semifinals, except at every event not just Majors. If jkaem and JKS can get back to their old forms and Liazz shows up a bit more they might snag a trophy or two

Makes sense. Although I'd think Kassad was the better coach on the face of things. But you do need to shake things up sometimes and I guess they don't want to make roster changes.
