American Esports organization 100 Thieves recently announced that they are parting ways with Avalanche, Froste, and Classify from their content creation team.
100 Thieves has been an influential organization in different Esports titles for a long time. They’re deeply invested in talented rosters in League of Legends, Call of Duty, Valorant, etc., and a solid cast of content teams.
The organization recently announced that content creators Joseph “Mako” Kelsey, Avalanche, Froste, and Classify parted ways with the organization’s content team.
These four streamers started gaining popularity on the internet and formed a content creation team called “The Mob” in 2014. They were creating content under two separate banners – The Mob and 100 Thieves.
The reason behind them leaving 100 Thieves
Mako, Avalanche, Froste, and Classify had been best friends while creating content for The Mob. But in December last year, Mako decided to leave the team, and that changed everything.
The Mob released a statement on their official Twitter regarding Mako leaving the team to return to his hometown of New York.
Mako also made a statement about needing time away from content creation to focus on mental health. He claimed that content creation was never his cup of tea. Although he did not clarify the future of his career, Mako was thankful to the community for their support during his time with The Mob and 100 Thieves.
Following Mako’s departure, The Mob team carried on their work for some time until finally, they decided to seal the future of The Mob. On January 31, 2021, the remaining members chose to go their separate ways. They felt that the void left by Mako had only grown, and the bonds they shared throughout the years had been torn. The remaining members felt that they could not carry on with The Mob without Mako.
However, the three remaining members still carried on their work under the banner of 100 Thieves. But today, 100 Thieves also announced the release of the three streamers to pursue their careers elsewhere.
Even though the main reason behind their release is unknown, it can be speculated that it all started from Mako leaving The Mob.
