100 Thieves core in talks with EXTREMUM - Report

The Russian organisation is looking to bring on the Oceanic trio alongside two European players to compete on the Old Continent.

EXTREMUM are targeting the 100 Thieves trio of Aaron "⁠AZR⁠" Ward, Jay "⁠Liazz⁠" Tregillgas, and Sean "⁠Gratisfaction⁠" Kaiwai to form a new Europe-based roster, according to a report from DBLTAP. The three players have been in search of a new place to call home since 100 Thieves announced their intention to pull out of CS:GO in mid-October.

DBLTAP had previously reported that Liazz was in discussions with Gen.G, but now reports that despite those talks, 100 Thieves and the trio of players are engaged in an ongoing discussion with EXTREMUM.

AZR, Liazz, and Gratisfaction may play under the same banner once again

The Russian organisation, which is reportedly funded by private investors, would look to move the three Oceanic members to Europe, where they would be joined by two additional European players in order to complete the roster.

Notably, the core of AZR, Liazz, and Gratisfaction currently remain qualified for the next Valve Major despite a 40% deduction to their Regional Major Ranking (RMR) points following the departure of Justin "⁠jks⁠" Savage and Joakim "⁠jkaem⁠" Myrbostad. If the move was to come to fruition, the team would need to return to North America to hold on to their Major slot if any further RMR events unfold.

It's more denial then anything... You'll get the NA sucks anyways, EU>>>NA, etc. But at the end of the day losing a major region just hurts the overall quality of the esport. But I mean... CSGO is still going to do well because EU & Brazil are super strong and of course betting! CSGO has to be number 1 in terms of esports betting and that helps a lot. Anyways, yeh... Like you said though NA CS dying isn't good even if hltv thinks otherwise.

its less rng in that game, think thats why it has good betting. (and that 14yr olds could bet with skins before).

NA as competitor has been pretty underwhelming since IBP ban but to say that csgo is dying in NA is good riddance is not really great.

Yes but he was a supporting awper in 100T, similar to that of SmithZz when he played. While I was still disappointed with Grat's performance overall in RNG/100T, he certainly wasn't given the same freedom and flexibility that he had in Grayhound.
2020-11-01 10:34

there is a reason his best rounds where when he was clutching, because 100T never set up around the AWP, when he has freedom hes actually pretty good. Very high skill ceiling but just needs more consistency

He is just terrible main awper. Face it. He is actually really solid rifler but his AWP whiffs are too much. Second AWP maybe. he deffinetly could be amanek of some OCE team but he shouldnt be main awper.

Both offers are likely to be true, but they chose to form a team based in Europe instead of NA, which is obviously the best short-term offer. The issue is on long-term.. what about after the pandemic? Will they stay in Europe or will those two players move to Australia..? Wouldn't VISAs be a big issue?
2020-11-01 08:30

No, Australians can easily get British visas, at their age it's very easy to get a working visa in England. The rest of Europe might be more complex.

I think maybe Notallama referring to the other two Europeans who would join AZR, Grat, Liazz on this new team. Hard for them to get Australian VISAs.

Depends where, you can enter Europe no problem. But Australia and England have a working holiday permit program that is easily available for any Australian/Kiwi under 30, you literally apply and get approved as long as you have no criminal record, travel insurance and I think $5000 in the bank. Most other European countries would need an AU passport holder to apply for a work visa, which generally needs an employer and various other things to be approved, it's not as easy. Not that it's difficult when an org is sponsoring you, but still for quickly getting up and running in EU, UK is definitely going to be easier.

I don't know about you but I honestly think the Org looks a little shady, A practically unknown org based in Russia that somehow have funding from 'Private investors', and that they manged to sign older QBF/Winstrike Players which I presume was expensive. I'm hoping they get signed by a different org other than a no-name shady Russian Org.

I don't know if USTILO will leave ORDER or not but if he stays IMO the best they can do Is: Liazz (2nd entry, he is a star not a support) AZR (Support, IGL) Grat (AWPer) zeph (entry) HaZR (lurker)

i liked 100T quite a bit, but now i would prefer AZR to go to faze or somewhere, liazz to gen.g and grat maybe to some T2 american team or back to AUS.

I like the idea of building a team around AZR and Gratisfaction, but why would you take Liazz, guy is a bot for me, he doesn't have impact in the game. Also he was supposed to join Gen.G so it's getting weird.

Liazz played support role and didnt get the chance to shine, jks played the star role and It didnt let Liazz play to his full potential. Liazz is one of the best players in Australia if u give him the right roles Edit: Example, look at him back on ORDER where he played good roles instead of support. He really aint a bot

He played in ORDER 2 years ago, it doesn't mean that he will be good now. And rn. he plays like a BOT, so not a good pickup imo.

XD You think that Liazz can be good in his old roles that he had in ORDER because he was good in thos roles in ORDER vs T20 AU trash teams and that's why he will be a great signing, and you are naming me dumb? Funny.

That AZR and Gratisfaction can build a good team together, but Liazz is trash and he doesn't deserve to be on this roster.
