Earlier this week, 100 Thieves revealed that it would be creating a professional Call of Duty: Warzone team. The battle royale game has exploded since its release in March and shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. While there’s no official competitive circuit for the game, 100T’s entry into the scene proves that one could develop soon. As a part of this entry, the organization has signed former COD pro Thomas “Tommey” Trewren to be the team’s first member and creator. This is also the first real professional Warzone signing in the industry.
Tommey joins 100 Thieves’ Warzone team

Many Call of Duty fans may know Tommey from his years of experience in the professional scene. Playing on notable teams like Vitality, Team Reciprocity, and, most recently, the Dallas Empire, Tommey is a true veteran of the game. However, his stock dropped last season when he rode the bench for the Empire for the duration of the year.
Since he had some free time on his hands, Tommey decided to play and stream Warzone religiously. His time with the game has proven fruitful, as he’s played and won some high-profile tournaments with some huge names in the community.
When the 2020 Call of Duty League season ended, Tommey announced that he would be pursuing Warzone full-time. Obviously, this was a great decision, as his skills have only been improved. 100 Thieves took notice of this and brought the England-native aboard.
Matt “Nadeshot” Haag, a fellow veteran of COD, had the following to say about the signing:
He’s [Tommey] a very well-respected member of the esports community and one of the best players I have ever seen in Warzone. Personally, I couldn’t be happier to have him on the team.
In addition to playing on the professional Warzone roster, Tommey will also serve as a content creator for 100T. His stream has been blossoming over the past few months and his success should only trend upward with this announcement.
It’s an exciting time for 100 Thieves fans, as the organization recently announced their entry into the CDL with the L.A. Thieves. It’s safe to say 100T is back in Call of Duty with full force.
