Slemmy to lead C9

Alec "Slemmy" White will be Cloud9's new in-game leader following the team's existential search for leadership after a poor performance at the MLG Columbus Major.

The North American side have been struggling to fill the gap left by Sean "⁠seang@res⁠" Gares, with Jordan "⁠n0thing⁠" Gilbert filling in as the team's ingame leader to no avail. Ultimately, however, Cloud9 have brought in Alec "⁠Slemmy⁠" White to fill the gap, as the twenty-five-year-old SKDC graduate will be in charge of calling for the team.

Meanwhile, the futures of Without a Roof and Ryan "⁠freakazoid⁠" Abadir are uncertain, as the former now face the ESEA Premier playoffs without a fifth and the latter is still under contract with Cloud9.


n0thing will be able to focus on his game again as Slemmy takes the reins as IGL

The newcomer, who lead Without a Roof's (ex-Obey) rag-tag lineup to a second place in the Premier division of ESEA, will count with the experience of n0thing and Andrew "⁠Irukandji⁠" Timmerman to help him with the task of calling for a top-flight squad, and will be reunited with fellow ex-teammate (on SKDC, ex-eLevate, FolloweSports.com, and Splyce) Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip.

"I’ve been working very hard for a long time hoping for an opportunity like this. I’m extremely excited and ready to work even harder to help this team achieve more success. I am honored to play alongside some the most veteran players in North American Counter-Strike."

Alec "⁠Slemmy⁠" White

"We are happy to bring Slemmy on board and are looking forward to seeing what he can do on the international stage. In Slemmy, we see an eager and hungry player who has dedicated himself to the craft of IGL, which we have been searching for. After a short trial period, the reports that each player and coach gave me showed that Slemmy is a step in the direction we are looking to head going into the summer season."

— Tres "stunna" Saranthus

This addition closes Cloud9's roster:

United States Jordan "⁠n0thing⁠" Gilbert
United States Tyler "⁠Skadoodle⁠" Latham
Canada Mike "⁠shroud⁠" Grzesiek
United States Jake "⁠Stewie2K⁠" Yip
United States Alec "⁠Slemmy⁠" White

Yup, Slemmy and Hades were the best available players if you were looking for NA talent (as IGL's). But I think Hades is way better, idk how C9 left his best option to Winterfox....

Hades is runs text-book CS strats that can oftentimes appear predictable and his fragging is much more inconsistent than Slemmy's. I think they made the right choice but only time will tell.

hades chose winterfox like a week ago, and I'm assuming c9 approached him. for whatever reason, he felt wfx was a better fit for him. that's how it works.

Yeah, I mean it's sad to see players like Shroud and Ska on a team like C9. They brought in this Slemmy guy who is totally unproven to lead a team with big time international (for NA standards) experience. Slemmy has lead some tier 2-3 NA teams and his team has beaten a couple of better teams online. However on LAN, they haven't done jack shit, taken a map of winterfox in a BO3, taken a map of CLG and beat old Method in a BO1. And this guy is going to lead a CSGO team who is expected to be the top of his region, compete internationally and make it to the biggest tournaments in the game. He has proven that he can't keep up with lower skilled NA players frag wise, so I really hope for C9 that this guy is some kind of mad scientist genius who can outsmart the best teams in the world, otherwise he is just a big waste of time for everyone, including us spectators.

can't please you ppl, if they had picked up another mad fragger you'd complain that they need an igl, they pick up possibly the best igl in NA (that's available right now and isn't bound to any contracts) and now you still complain.

"Possibly the best igl in NA" According to who? In what way has Slemmy proven that he is possibly the best igl available, he hasn't proven jack shit and he is totally inexperienced on the higher levels of competitive CSGO. The move is imo illogical, Irukandji looked like he brought some life back to C9, and I think most fans would be pleased if Irukandji handled the leading and C9 brought in a player who can actually play the game.

Cuz C9 is not one of the richest NA eSports org and don't have money to buy out players, right? You got a link to Shroud saying that? I think they shouldn't have gone for a IGL, but ye last I checked Ex6 is available. C9 has had a chance to pickup players like Gob B, but didn't, they have only themselves to blame for not acting when they had a chance.

Considering Gob B had already kicked Legija of Mouse, I seriously doubt that he would pass on a chance to play for C9 just cuz he wanted to play with Legija instead. That makes no sense.

Interview with SileNt from NRG: topfrag.rip/method-moves-nrg-esports-add.. "Around the point of davey leaving I contacted LEGIJA which he’s been trying to play for the right NA team for quite some time now and he told me him and gob were both interested in coming to NA as a package and in my eyes that is something our team has clearly needed for the past two seasons, a experienced IGL." Besides that Gob B said on a interview with Kapio that when he contacted n0thing (after getting kicked from Mouz), he said C9 had different plans but would like to have him as coach-IGL. After he signed with NRG, C9 approached him again but told them he was already a player for NRG.

That's my point, they had a chance to sign him, but chose not too, and are playing with Slemmy when they could've had Gob B.

I wouldn't say it was an easy choice back then tho, Gob B wanted to play and C9 would only took him as coach. When Gob was on Mouz "Bot B" was quite a thing, he didn't seem to be at a proper level to be a top team player. He's been trying hard to improve aimwise and has shown some good stuff lately on NRG. Probably on the next months after Cologne and all the big leagues (ECS, ESL and ELeague) come to an end, he will have a chance on a top NA team.
2016-04-24 19:18
gob b was kicked from mousesports after he turned down many offers from other orgs because he was sure he would be playing for mousesports in the future. NRG was the best offer he could get this spontaneously at the time.

He turned down the offers from NA before he was kicked from Mouz, thinking that they will play together. He said that himself in his interview on youtube. Then when he was kicked and free, C9 should've picked him up. But they opted to keep Freak in the team and have n0thing IGL, which we all know failed miserably, in the meantime Gob B slipped out of C9's hands and joined NRG.

With ECS starting and Turner league around the corner, they couldn't use a stand in while waiting for a big contract to free up. So they picked up some random who can call in game. Maybe shroud can carry them and skadoodler gets back in form.

With every roster move C9 is getting worse original coL semi finalists at a major +shroud quarters +shahzam groupstage +ska/freak groupstage +stewie hardly qualified +slemmy might finally be it, they wont even be able to attend a major. In all these roster changes swag>shroud Hiko>shahzam shahzam<ska seangares>stewie slemmy<freakazoid do they all sit around in a table and all get high and make these decisions i dont understand? how can shroud tolerate playing with these players? doesn't he dream of one day winning a major or advancing to later stages?

2016-04-24 05:41
Don't understand why C9 are continuously making these changes. SGRez > Stewie, Freak > Slemmy - free, it isn't even close. Other teams make roster changes by getting higher caliber players in, and the lower caliber players out.
2016-04-24 05:53
c9 have hit an all time low
2016-04-24 06:00
Still do not understand how C9 can be so good at picking the worst players that make little to no sense at all. Picking up FREAKAZOID was a lucky pick and it worked for a while, although they seem to be regretting that decision already. Honestly, they should pick up an experienced and trained IGL, replace stewie with a solid player, someone like a stanislaw or just someone who will bring a good, consistent level. Seriously, Slemmy? Who the fuck is slemmy, and how is he going to bring anything to the C9 table that they need or don't have. Just seems like the organization is unwilling to pay the price for good players in return for having a good team, god damn.

clown9 arent even trying anymore. they just sign random nobodys and get worse and worse. the team should just disband and the organization should go find a team that actually wants to try and win.

2016-04-24 09:06
slemmy is a LEGEND, he is one of the brightest talents of this decade, his calling and in game leading is legendary, he puts people like gob B, Pronax and ex6tenz to shame. Cloud9 will now be great again, he will push through smokes with Stewie2k, pushing 2 people through smoke is better than 1, why you might ask? well according to Slemmy's brilliant mind, 2 is better than 1, the chance of getting a kill on to the site increases exponentially! Cloud9 will now be a force to be reckoned with! watch out EU, your time is done.

They desperately need more firepower, this is even low level of skill for a NA standards. They have one over rated player in shroud, inconsistent Ska and nothing else good luck to them though they'll need it badly after this roster move.

Sometimes it's better to put in the time to mold someone than to blow a lot of money of a player that may or may not perform. This same shit happened when they picked up Stewie and he's proven to be valuable. Unfortunately they haven't won anything due to other issues within the team. But Slemmy could actually turn out to be a good pick. We just need to give him time to adjust.
2016-04-24 20:47
1 reply
I understand that logic but they aren't doing that they are getting players who been around in the scene for a couple years already and were always bad. Just look at stewie the kid was getting dumpstered in tier 3 NA online, freakazoid gone from the scene for a long time not playing and even when he was active in Source he was bad, Slemmy come on? He doesn't even have a past he's just bad. We both know that there are more established players in NA who probably deserve that salary a lot more than these terrible players. This whole we need to give them time to adjust and all this other bullshit is a bad excuse, nV made a roster change and won a major right after, LG made roster changes went to 3 finals in top tournaments in a row and won a major, Fnatic made a roster change and won 8 LAN titles in a row. When your a top org in your region you don't get that excuse privilege of a tier 2-3 team who have no expectations.
