Thanks to their performance in the 2022 League of Legends Championship Series (LCS) Spring Split thus far, 100 Thieves are proving to not be the Thieves of old. 

Once known to be a perennial team that could make playoffs but not make waves, apart from their 2018 Spring playoffs run, the Thieves rarely got any respect. However, thanks to their first-ever championship win in the 2021 LCS Summer Split playoffs and their performances in the 2022 LCS Spring Split thus far, this has changed.

100 Thieves did not look like the reigning champions to start the 2022 LCS Spring Split. Like previous splits, they started off slow but fortunately for them, they finally found their groove, showcasing strong performances from their top and bottom lanes. This resulted in a seven, nearly eight-game, winning streak a run ended only by the party-spoiling Dignitas in their last game of the regular season. 

100 Thieves' Dominance Over Cloud9 Solidifies Their Improvement

This has been further evidenced by 100 Thieves' impressive victory over Cloud9 in the 2022 LCS Spring Split playoffs in which they laid out a plan and, not only stuck to it but followed it to perfection. The plan, of course, was to shut down Park "Summit" Woo-tae, a top laner who had dominated the league up to this point, putting himself as the clear frontrunner for the MVP award.

But thanks to Can "Closer" Celik and a wide team effort, the Korean top laner couldn’t gain an inch, limiting him to only two kills and 15 deaths. 

Not only did the 'shutdown Summit' plan work, but 100 Thieves General Manager, Christopher "PapaSmithy" Smith went as far as to brand the player and the victory "pretty straightforward."

The Thieves' Roster Brings Fresh Hope For Org

Additionally, not only do 100 Thieves have a stellar jungler who can seemingly will his team to a victory, but they are boast a roster that could make many more victories straightforward.

Their bottom lane of ADC Victor "FBI" Huang and support Choi "huhi" Jae-hyun have been unmatched since joining giving them a much-needed stable platform they can rely on. Add the fact that they have Kim "Ssumday" Chan-ho playing at a second All-Team All pro calibre and a mid-laner in Felix "Abbeddagge" Braun that can go tit for that with anyone in the role, this 100 Thieves roster is truly something.

All of this would normally have not been possible with the 100 Thieves of old. However, thanks to this squad that they were able to implement in the 2021 LCS season, the sky is well and truly the limi.

Their victory over Cloud9 could be the start of something special, and only time will tell how the Thieves will perform going forward. But for the first time, in a long time, the future looks bright.
