100 Thieves co-owner, CouRage, on Rocket League esports: “Why are we not on this?”

The co-owner of popular entertainment and esports org, 100 Thieves, has been toying around with Rocket League lately, even hinting at a possible esports debut in the car soccer scene.
Co-owner of the 100 Thieves organisation, Jack Dunlop aka CouRage, has shown a lot of interest in the car soccer video game as of late and the esports scene is starting to take notice.

The 27-year-old picked up the game for the first time ever and not without getting the attention of the entire community in a tweet that amassed over 11,000 interactions for just a simple question: “Would people watch a Rocket League stream tomorrow?”

Casters, pros and even the official RLEsports account chimed in, enCouRaging CouRage in proceeding with the idea and boy, was it a farm for content.

Playing private matches with pros, content creators and even getting tips and tricks from some of the most decorated rocketeers on the face of the earth, Mr Dunlop got the VIP welcome to the pitch but not without asking another important question: Why aren’t 100 Thieves in Rocket League?

Over the last year, huge esports organisation have made their way to Rocket League, so much so that it might’ve given the 100T co-owner that FOMO feeling when he headed to the esport item shop and found not his own team but that of his rivals.

Orgs like G2 Esports, PWR, FaZe Clan, just to name a few, caught the streamer’s eye who immediately tweeted out “Why are we not on this smhhhh??” tagging 100 Thieves in the process.

The entirety of the Rocket League-100 Thieves tweeting saga ended with over 30,000 likes and countless impressions as fans of the esports scene took this as a promising sign that the LA-based org was looking to enter the space.

While there aren’t many worthy rosters just hanging around waiting for an S-Tier to come to pick them up. That isn't to say there aren't opportunities, True Neutral, a South American org that recently relocated to North America to advance their careers and have found themselves termed "South America's darlings", have made a big impact since their move, recently finishing in the top four Haunted Hallows Cup.

This could be the Thieves’ golden opportunity to snatch a world-class roster in their region plus capitalise on the momentum CouRage was able to build up. If it were to go down like that, 100 Thieves would have one of the smoothest entrances in Rocket League history.
