The finalists of World Cup duos were with the Org since 2019, parting after two years under 100T flag.
Big sporting companies appear to be taking a step back from the competitive Fortnite, as 100 Thieves have agreed to split with Davis “Ceice” McClellan and Hayden “Elevate” Krueger.
Thank you @Ceice and @ElevateFN for your time with 100 Thieves. We’ll always cherish the memories we had from getting to know you to seeing you both compete on the big stage. We wish you both all the best in the next step of your careers! pic.twitter.com/sm7EH5g6oC

“Thank you Ceice and Elevate for your time with 100 Thieves. We’ll always cherish the memories we had from getting to know you to seeing you both compete on the big stage. We wish you both all the best in the next step of your careers!” 100T shared via social media.
Ceice and Elevate both signed for 100T back in February 2019, achieving instant success as a powerful Fortnite pair, coming in 3rd only a few months later at the Fortnite World Cup duo event.
According to messages from both McClellan and Krueger via Twitter, the splitting is a friendly one, with nothing but positive words from both dedicated to the org.
Although Elevate did not announce that he will continue to play for Fortnite, Ceice did make a Twitter post to the Free Agency.

With the separation of both Ceice and Elevate, 100T has signed four remaining Fortnite players:
- Diego “Arkhram”
- Brendan, “Falconer”
- Martin “MrSavage” by Foss Andersen
- Brodie’s “rehx” Franks
It is important to notice that other than Mr Savage, who is based in Norway, the remaining free players are located in the North America West (NWA) competitive area, with 100 Thieves’ LA base maybe being a factor in the decision to release the two East Coast players.
