Official: Cloud9 sign coL
Time: 2014-08-02 03:26
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Cloud9 have announced via their website that they have completed the signing of compLexity's CS:GO division.

On Friday morning, HLTV.org reported that the deal was close at hand after Cloud9 added a CS:GO section to their website and listed coL's players in it.

Following the expiry of the players' contracts with coL, Cloud9 have now officially confirmed the move, which extends the North America-based organisation's portfolio to six games.

n0thing & co sign for Cloud9

Cloud9 owner Jack Etienne, whose Dota2 team came in 5th-6th at The International, which earned them a whopping $655,842 cheque, admitted to being impressed by CS:GO's growth in recent months, and decided to sign coL's squad after EMS One Katowice.

"I've been interested in CS:GO's community for some time now and after I saw the amazing crowd at IEM Katowice first hand, I knew I had to get involved," said Cloud9 owner Jack Etienne.

"After speaking with a number of the top teams, I really was impressed with this one particular group and knew right away that we could work well together."

The team's LAN debut for Cloud9 will come in just two weeks' time, as the ESEA runners-up will attend ESL One Cologne, where $250,000 will be up for grabs.

Cloud9's now have the following CS:GO division:

Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert
Sean "[email protected]" Gares
Spencer "Hiko" Martin
Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen
Mike "shroud" Grzesiek

really sign a other player instead of sgares.....
2014-08-02 03:28:42
LOL, he is a good awper...
2014-08-02 03:49:04
Not much compared to Semphis. He has done better with rifling just these past couple of games and he seems much happier from his stream.
2014-08-02 03:56:02
Yep, semphis awp has been improving a lot

-sgares +dboorN or +irukanji
2014-08-02 05:38:50

i like that.
2014-08-02 07:24:28
dboorN and irukanji are a duo, they should not get split
2014-08-02 09:01:27
Dboorn/irukanji always manage to join really good teams, and then within a year its been taken over and none of the original people are left. Like a cancer
2014-08-02 08:21:15
irukandji will never play professional CS again, he's a dentist now

dboorN is also focusing on his career from what i've heard
2014-08-02 10:30:58
-job + CS
2014-08-02 10:34:46
yeah that's why so many old players still are around, cause they never made a career and have no skills, not even in cs anymore :P

2014-08-02 10:32:18
What does this mean for coL players? Will they receive higher pay? hope so!
2014-08-02 10:35:24
probably..cloud9 is getting some cash in threw clothing , lol , dota2 and stuff.not even sure if they got paid monthly at col or if they just got the prizemoney. plus they will stream more and get more viewers with the c9 brand behind them i guess
2014-08-02 10:46:44
