Earlier today 100 Thieves announced on Twitter that they are officially parting ways with their two most successful Fortnite Battle Royal players David “Ceice” McClellan and Hayden “Elevate” Krueger. The tweet from 100 Thieves included a very heartwarming video montage of their time spent with the pair and wished them the best in their future careers to-come.
Thank you @Ceice and @ElevateFN for your time with 100 Thieves. We'll always cherish the memories we had from getting to know you to seeing you both compete on the big stage. We wish you both all the best in the next step of your careers! pic.twitter.com/sm7EH5g6oC— 100T Esports (@100T_Esports) February 15, 2021
The pair had joined 100 Thieves at the beginning of 2019, where the duo reached the Fortnite World Cup Duo Finals later that year. In third place, both Ceice and Elevate shared an impressive $1.8m award. Soon after their win, the pair joined forces with Team Liquid player River “Riversan” Handley to compete in the first-ever Fortnite Champion Series. They took third place in the North American West region. After a successful run together, the pair eventually parted ways to focus on their priorities. These days you’ll find Elevate playing competitive leagues in Valorant while Ceice is continuing strong as a Fortnite competitor.
New beginnings for Ceice and Elevate
Starting today the pair will still be playing and competing - without the representation and backing of 100 Thieves.
Ceice later tweeted that he was looking forward to what the future will bring and is “beyond excited for everything to come”. He also retweeted the 100 Thieves Tweet to express his gratitude and pride further for everything they had accomplished together.
Elevate pinned his response to 100 Thieves stating that “Words can not describe how thankful I am for my time on 100 Thieves. I grew as a player, personality, and friend all with the help of my second family. Goodbyes are always hard but I’ll always still be around. Much love family.”
It is the end of an era as the pair part ways with 100 Thieves, but with the two looking for new endeavours and representation, their futures look brighter than ever.
