The Los Angeles Thieves have parted ways with Johnathan “John” Perez, Carlos “Venom” Hernandez, Austin “SlasheR” Liddicoat, and Thomas “TJHaly” Haly.
100 Thieves’ owner Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag decided to get into the professional Call of Duty scene again. The ex-professional CoD player acquired OpTic Los Angeles’ spot and formed a competitive roster before the 2021 CDL season. However, the team failed to meet the expectations and parted ways with four of their players before the 2022 season.
Even though the Los Angeles Thieves made a decent start to the 2021 Call of Duty League season, things did not go as planned during the second stage. As a result, the organization made huge roster changes but still could not solve the problem. At the end of the year, L.A.T. took home a $20k prize and nothing more.
Donovan “Temp” Laroda got benched in the second stage of the competition, and Venom joined forces but the team could only win a single game with the new roster. Still, the Los Angeles Thieves needed more changes. At the time, Zack “Drazah” Jordan joined the starting roster. With him on the field, the Los Angeles Thieves showed improvement signals.
Stage 4 was a total disaster for the Los Angeles representatives so the changes continued, and they never found their rhythm and synergy all along.
New Season, New Hope
As the season came to an end, Los Angeles Thieves’ decision was clear. The team will compete with a different roster in the 2022 Call of Duty League season. There are many options on the market as almost all of the teams are looking for possible changes.
On the other hand, John, Venom, SlasheR, and TJHaly will find themselves new homes. All of these players are experienced and talented enough to compete in the Call of Duty League.
