From Rags to Thieves: An Interview with Ceice and Elevate

Published

on

There are several prominent esports organizations that hold impressive rosters spanning from FaZe Clan to Ghost Gaming, however, a couple of new additions to 100 Thieves make them an instant favorite.

Epic Games announcement of a $30 million Fortnite World Cup event in July sent the esports community ablaze as players began to train day and night for their chance to earn millions.

More organizations are signing players with the lead up to the Fortnite World Cup which will be held in New York from July 26 to July 28 and offers a massive prize pool.

The pot for the World Cup is so huge, that the winner of the solo event will walk away with 3 million dollars!

Fortnite fans love to cheer on their favorite players spanning from FaZe Clan’s Tfue to Team Liquid’s Poach, but that leaves room for underestimated players to rise through the ranks.

Thinking Thieves

Davis ‘Ceice’ McClellan and Thomas ‘Elevate’ Krueger signed to Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag’s organization, 100 Thieves, in February 2019 and have not disappointed fans with their performances.

Ceice and Elevate won WSOE 3 Fortnite along with placing as finalists in the Fortnite Fall Skirmish at TwitchCon 2018.

The past six months have shown what dedicated practice and a strong mental attitude can do for a Fortnite duo, and right now, Ceice and Elevate are looking to be a top-five duo within the Fortnite World Cup.

Ceice, you qualified for the Fortnite World Cup during the first week of online qualifiers. First off, congratulations and good luck in New York! Second, what was your mindset going into the online finals on April 14? Did you take a different approach or did you stick to your gameplan?

Ceice: “Thank you! My mindset going into Week 1 was to stay with my plan and be mentally strong throughout the whole tournament. I had games where I was forced out of my typical landing spot, and multiple games dying off spawn. Being mentally strong enough and only focusing on the positives, especially when you’re competing in solos plays such a huge role in being successful.”

You two won WSOE 3 back in December 2018, and a little while later you two signed to 100 Thieves. Did you expect your Fortnite careers to skyrocket after WSOE 3, or was it just another day on the job?

Ceice: “I’ve always expected to have a successful future in Fortnite, putting in the time and grinding every day for over a year will always pay off. I always treated competitive Fortnite as a job, keeping a consistent schedule and practicing daily.”

Ceice and Elevate took first at WSOE 3 Fortnite.

Elevate: “A lot of pros and scouts knew we were a top team but needed proof that we could execute and actually win a championship. So to me, I was hoping we could use it as a stepping stone, which we did.”

Elevate, what has been your approach for the Online Opens? Have you been practicing with your team or grinding Arena in order to prepare?

Elevate: “The main thing I’m doing to prepare is looking at my gameplay and others every night. That way I can change things for my next day of practice. I mainly play pro customs every night though.”

How has training in a team house been compared to living away from each other? Have you seen an improvement in your gameplay?

Ceice: “It is such a good feeling to know that you can just strictly work on your gameplay and becoming the best. No distractions. 100 Thieves has been amazing throughout this whole process, and there’s definitely a lot of noticeable improvement when you are surrounded by other insane players.”

Elevate: “Living in a team house has been great for me because of the atmosphere. Surrounding yourself with other successful people with the same mindset as you makes the biggest difference for me compared to my home and online practice.”

Fortnite and Epic Games have been under tons of scrutiny lately from the competitive community regarding certain changes including banning stretched res and not including a FOV slider. How do you stay positive in a negative competitive environment?

Ceice: “The changes don’t bother me because I’m gonna play regardless. Most of the top players are the same way. People are gonna whine about it, but the best will always be looking for ways to exploit it and keep moving forward.”

Elevate: “If they had to make these changes they should have been made a long time ago. The timing was awful, and that’s the only thing that annoys me.”

What do you think Epic Games can do to help cater and understand pro’s opinions on in-game changes and tournament rules?

Ceice: “Having an elected player to be the voice of competitive Fortnite would be huge. We literally have zero say in anything that happens.”

Elevate: “Just listen to us more in general. Make an email list and just ask questions.”

Thanks for your time! Would you like to add anything else?

Ceice & Elevate: “Run it up!”

We would like to thank 100 Thieves, Ceice, and Elevate for taking the time to talk with us!

Fortnite Chapter 3 has just entered its second season, and it’s off to a great start. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 ends and Season 3 starts.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ended without much warning ahead of time from Epic Games. In fact, only a day before the Season ended did we get an announcement for Season 2.

Regardless, Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is off to a hot start. We have new POIs, weapons, and a flashy new Battle Pass. There’s also no building to start and an ongoing turf war.

Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 End?

fortnite season 2 the foundation destroyed

Fortnite Season 2 will end on June 3, 2022. This means the second season of the new chapter will last a little less than three months making it fairly short compared to Season 1.

This end date was found in the in-game files by data miners. Unlike last season where Epic Games listed two season end dates, there is only one end date this time around.

When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?

New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 3 to start on June 4.

That being said, leaker Shiina believes there will be an extended period of downtime after the season ends to prep for Season 3. We will know more about this delay as time draws closer.

Is There a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Live Event?

The final update for Fortnite Season 2 is here and we now have confirmation that, yes, there will be a live event!

The Season 2 live event will likely focus on stopping the new Doomsday Device from going off at Loot Lake. It is a very similar tower to that of Midas’ Doomsday Device in Chapter 2 Season 2.

What Season is Fortnite on?

Fortnite is currently in Chapter 3 Season 2. This is the second season of the third chapter which started after Chapter 2 Season 8. While most players refer to this season as “Season 2”, it’s technically Season 20.

There were 10 seasons in Chapter 1 and 8 seasons in Chapter 2.

For now, that’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. This chapter will likely span the next year or so and will be filled with exciting events.

We will keep you updated on when Fortnite Season 3 starts. For more Fortnite, check out the best controller settings for Chapter 3, and stay tuned for more news and guides.

Fortnite Season 2 introduced Marvel’s Prowler to the Battle Royale, and players can unlock him via the Battle Pass and a few challenges.

Fortnite Season 2 adds not one but two Marvel characters to the game via the Battle Pass, but players might not be familiar with Prowler.

Season 2 started off hot with an amazing battle pass and a shocking removal of the game’s iconic building mechanic. Players were even more excited to see the Battle Pass had two crossover characters.

The first is Doctor Strange who has a new movie releasing in May. However, players may not be super familiar with the second crossover character. And it was surprisingly released alongside the Fortnite v20.20 update.

Prowler is an alias used by a number of people in the Marvel universe. But he most recently appeared in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse as Miles Morales’ uncle. And the in-game skin is a similar depiction of the character.

Unlocking Prowler in Fortnite Season 2
