Norweigan Esports organization Apeks is in discussions with 100 Thieves over the transfer of Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad, according to multiple sources close to the situation. Discussions about the transfer between 100 Thieves and Apeks are nearing completion and are expected to result in an agreement, according to those same sources.

jkaem joined 100 Thieves one year ago after they re-entered CS:GO, but is expected to make an organizational move following their recent announcement of leaving the game for a second time. His teammate, Justin "jks" Savage, will join Complexity Gaming in the coming weeks, which has not been officially announced but was first reported by DBLTAP.

Having reached the playoffs of three separate Majors, jkaem has a tremendous amount of international experience. The best finish for 100 Thieves during his time with the organization were runner-up finishes at both IEM Beijing 2019 and ESL Pro League Season 12. His list of former organizations include: FaZe Clan, Dignitas, G2 Esports, and Renegades.

Apeks have had a number of lineups since the release of CS:GO, focusing primarily on recruiting Norwegian players. Their first and only non-Norwegian addition was Dennis “dennis” Edman earlier this year in June. Thus far in their esports venture, they have struggled to qualify for any top international Counter-Strike tournaments.
