Cloud9 have replaced longtime player [p,2644] with [p,7810] from Denial.
Hiko departs from Cloud9's lineup
Former Denial player Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan will be filling out the lineup in Martin's stead.
With a long history at the ESEA Invite level of North American CS, ShahZaM will presumably be drawn upon for his AWP skills, which were on full display at ESEA S17 LAN last weekend.
ShahZaM helped lead Denial to their underdog win over Cloud9 at ESEA LAN
Regarding the lineup change, team manager Tres "stunna" Saranthus had this to say:
"We have assembled a lineup capable of giving it’s all in the spirit of competition. It is my job to build the team and the players themselves, and in 2015 I plan to continue to do that starting with the reintroduction of Shahzeb 'ShahZam' Kahn," Saranthus said.
With these changes, Cloud9's lineup currently consists of:
|Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert|
|Mike "shroud" Grzesiek|
|Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen|
|Sean "seang@res" Gares|
|Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan|
