The Cleveland Cavaliers backed-100 Thieves have chosen to withdraw from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive for 2018, citing "roster complications and ongoing visa issues" with their Brazilian roster. The team was set to kick the year off at the ELEAGUE Major in Boston, but visa issues kept the Brazilian team from participating. Soon after that, Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe was removed from the team, before he and his teammates played a single official match

In a statement on Twitter the organization's founder, Call of Duty legend Matthew "Nadeshot" Haag, called his former players "great to work with." He cited a still growing staff as an obstacle to providing players with sufficient support.

The 100 Thieves organization currently owns a spot in the newly-franchised North American League of Legends Championship Series.
