Big moves are once again taking place in the North American Counter Strike: Global Offensive community.
It was announced today via Cloud9's website that the organisation has signed and confirmed their full 2015 roster, including two new players and a third new addition to act as analyst. Ryan “fREAKAZOiD” Abadir and Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham will be joining the team as players - readers may well remember that rumours of Abadir joining the squad were rife almost immediately after the previous starters, Semphis and ShahZaM.
Braxton “swag” Pierce will also become a part of the organisation as the team's dedicated analyst.
The new full Cloud9 Counter Strike: Global Offensive team is as follows:
Ryan “fREAKAZOiD” Abadir
Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham
Sean “seang@res” Gares
Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert
Michael “shroud” Grzesiek
Braxton “swag” Pierce (Analyst)
Tres “stunna” Saranthus (Manager)
The team's manager, Tres "stunna" Saranthus had this to say about the move.
“There are few words that can accurately express the amount of revitalization going on within the Cloud9 camp. In fREAKAZOiD andSkadoodle, we have two players with the most obvious goal to win first and foremost. I look at the hunger to succeed as an extremely essential key to success going forward with any player. These players aren’t out for themselves, but for the common good of bringing titles back to NA. In Pierce, I see one of the world’s best competitors and with him a vast knowledge of competitive experience. I cannot think of a former professional player more capable of helping to guide this team to where it needs to be.”
