There has always been tremendous competition among eSports organizations, not just in terms of leading in popular games, but also in terms of being a successful business. Currently, Cloud 9, Team Liquid, TSM, and 100 Thieves are in the upper echelons of the eSports world.
Recently, the president of TSM, Leena Xu, gave a fierce comeback to a person who compared her organization to that of 100 Thieves on Instagram.
“In 2 years look what 100 Thieves has done meanwhile TSM has fallen behind everyone under your leadership but keep modeling.”
Now, a comment like this would infuriate anyone. Moreover, Leena has done her bit for the organization, and it is one of the very best in the scene right now. Her organization has been one of the leading names in almost every major eSport title out there. She retaliated with a confident comeback to the comment saying, “TSM is the only profitable org.” However, she also made it a point to state that although she is comparing the success of 100T and TSM, NadeShot (100 Thieves co-owner) is her friend.

TSM President Leena Xu fiercely defends her organization in a comment box to-and-fro on Instagram
It is perhaps because of this that she has had to remove her comment. In her comments, she fiercely defended her organization while boasting of her team’s exploits over that of 100 Thieves.
In one of her comments, she said:
“Look at their (100 Thieves) then look at ours, look at their FN division the look at ours, look at their Apex/R6/Smash/influencer division then look at ours. Nade is my friend and yeah they have sick merch but just compare everything. Also our facility is opening later this year and you can compare that too.”

The facility in question is the latest $50M facility built for her organization. She dropped a video of it soon after 100 Thieves had unveiled theirs which cost around $35M.
There is minimal doubt about Leena’s leadership in her organization. She has done her part in enriching most of the rosters. However, straight up claiming her organization to be “the only profitable org” probably went a bit too far.
