Former Evil Geniuses Head Coach Chet "ImAPet" Singh is set to join the 100 Thieves professional CS:GO team, according to multiple sources. ImAPet will replace the spot vacated by Aleksandar "kassad" Trifunović, who parted ways with the team earlier this week.
After spending over a year and a half with the Evil Geniuses’ core, ImAPet left the organization following disagreements with Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz and Tarik "tarik" Celik. When the team was with NRG Esports, he helped them in their victory at IEM Shanghai in 2018. The team moved to the Evil Geniuses organization prior to their victory at ESL One New York 2019. The team would also win StarSeries Season 8 toward the latter part of the year.
100 Thieves re-entered CS:GO late last year with the acquisition of the former Renegades roster, following almost two years away from the game. Their first acquisition was the former Immortals roster that were later released before playing an official match. The reason for their sudden separation was a result of visa issues and behavioral issues by Vito "kNgV-" Giuseppe.
Since acquiring the majority Oceanic roster, 100 Thieves' best finish came at IEM Beijing 2019. More recent results were a playoff appearance at IEM Katowice and two narrow misses of the playoffs in Seasons 10 and 11 of ESL Pro League. At the moment, they are second place in their group in the first stage of the ESL One: Road to Rio tournament.
