One month ago, esports organization and clothing brand 100 Thieves unveiled its new Cash App Compound in a video. This beautiful facility features an abundance of rooms, but CEO Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag diverted their tour at one point to reveal a new, unannounced member had joined 100 Thieves. For the last few weeks, the gaming community has been speculating who this newest member could be. Today, 100 Thieves announced that their newest player is Martin “MrSavage” Anderson, formerly MrSavageM, a new addition for the team’s Fortnite roster.
Welcome @MrSavage to 100 Thieves!
MrSavage qualified 4x for the 2019 Fortnite World Cup and placed T30 in both Solos & Duos. This 15-year-old Norwegian phenom has solidified his spot as a top competitor and creator in the scene. We’re beyond excited to have him on 100 Thieves! pic.twitter.com/5UnRvj1iJW

MrSavage is a big get for 100 Thieves
MrSavage, the 15-year-old Fortnite prodigy from Norway, may be new to 100 Thieves, but he isn’t new to winning. Once esports team Public Enemy disbanded in 2018, he stayed away from signing until he joined NRG in January 2019. In under two years, MrSavage has a list of accomplishments most could never dream to attain. The 15-year-old has a plethora of placements in the top 30 throughout his two-year Fortnite career in all three tournament types: Solos, Duos, and Squads. He earned over $180,000 in 2019 in tournament earnings alone and showed the world that gaming can change your life.
A record of success
The Fortnite World Cup had the second-largest prize pool in esports history with $30 million. Bugha, the Fortnite World Cup champion, garnered views from thousands as he secured interviews with the likes of Jimmy Fallon and others.
MrSavage has made a name for himself as well. He qualified for gaming’s top tournament four separate times and placed in the top 30 consistently in both Solos and Duos. The Fortnite player placed second in the Montreal Qualifiers but was unable to compete in the finals due to his age. MrSavage is excited to create content but assures his fans victory is a top priority with 100 Thieves. His content can be enjoyed on both YouTube and Twitch.
