Cloud9 add Golden for ELEAGUE Premier; STYKO remains stand-in

Cloud9 have confirmed that Maikil "⁠Golden⁠" Selim and Martin "⁠STYKO⁠" Styk will be playing for the team as stand-ins at ELEAGUE Premier.

This will be the second tournament that STYKO will attend with Cloud9, after the mousesports player filled in for the North American side at ESL One Cologne, where the team went out in the groups following defeats to Astralis and Natus Vincere.

Golden's temporary addition comes just days after Cloud9 lost Tarik "⁠tarik⁠" Celik to MIBR, leaving the team with a three-man active roster as Pujan "⁠FNS⁠" Mehta remains transfer listed.

Golden will lead Cloud9 in Atlanta

The Swedish player is currently assessing his options after being benched by fnatic in the aftermath of William "⁠draken⁠" Sundin's signing from NiP.

Originally a member of fnatic Academy, Golden was promoted to the organisation's main squad in August 2017 and led the team to victories at IEM Katowice and at the WESG Finals, and to deep runs at the ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals, ECS Season 4 Finals and DreamHack Masters Marseille.

ELEAGUE Premier will run from July 21-29 at the G-FUEL Arena, in Atlanta, with eight teams set to duke it out for $1 million in prize money. Cloud9 have been drawn in Group A, alongside Astralis, Liquid and MIBR, with their first match in the tournament pitting them against the current No1. team in the world.

Cloud9 will attend the event with:

United States Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta
United States William "⁠RUSH⁠" Wierzba
United States Tyler "⁠Skadoodle⁠" Latham
Slovakia Martin "⁠STYKO⁠" Styk (stand-in)
Sweden Maikil "⁠Golden⁠" Selim (stand-in)

C9 with slemmy was worse imo. Atleast with semphis in the early days they were good. Imo he best C9 roster was Sgares, N0thing,Shroud,Freakazoid, and skadoodle. I think if his C9 roster adds a new awper and replaces styko with a fragger like sick or some other good fragger they can be good. They will also have a leader that has played against teams like faze and NaVi and astralis unlike FNS who has only played against t2 teams like splyce, and other teams.

Exactly. Not to mention they were placing very high and beating top teams in the few tournaments that happened before the major as well. They were considered by most to be the NA FaZe which I think says a lot about the composition of the team.
2018-07-17 19:08
Skadoodle had the tournament of his life? Really? More like tarik had the event of his life. You are right if you're implying that they won because of Skadoodle, mainly because he finally played somewhat up to the level he did in 2015. None of Skadoodle's recent performances really come close to the form he had in the summer 2015. That roster he carried was the definition of average. That team was living off shroud's ESL Cologne performance in 2014, prior to Skadoodle's arrival.

2018-07-18 14:23
I think getting golden is a mistake. It happens so often that players from EU rarely want to stay in NA after a certain period of time, if they can get him to fully commit to the team it could work but having a homesick player with 1 foot out the door is a failed formula. Also I recognize that there arent that many IGLs in NA so it's likely they will have to go international but if they can find one in NA itd be optimal imo.
2018-07-17 02:16

Well yeah he may be homesick but it worked out with mixwell. Also i think he will be dedicated to the team and he has loads more experience than Fns. Since he spent a while on a T1 team unlike fns who was on CLG and Complexity both t2-3 teams.
2018-07-17 04:17
11 replies
It really didnt work with mixwell though they had a good run and then the team went to shit for multiple reasons and now he doesnt want to come back and play in NA again. Are you forgetting golden was from fnc academy and was on that team less than a year ago? It's not like Golden is hugely experienced over fns, fns has been in the scene longer and has been to tournaments of the same size. Not saying fns is a better choice but your points about golden dont have much weight. And yes a team house could be a good thing but sometimes it makes things even worse if cultures clash it can be hard to live with people. I guess well just have to wait and see but this has a decent possibility for reasons inside and outside of the server.

Imo the reason optic went to shit was because they kicked stanislaw who is a good IGL. After that they had no dedicated IGL and it seemed to go to shit. While yes golden was on FNC academy less than a year ago. He played against he top teams in the world and has beaten teams like Faze, NaVi,Astralis, And others. While FNS has been fighting splyce, Luminosity and European teams like heroic, godsent, and are on the same level with them.

While yes at IEM Katowice there was a huge preformance by flusha. Fnc had gone on a 2 year loosing streak. Having not won anything until Katowice. Imo golden was a major part in that since after his and lekr0s addition to the team the older players eemed rejuvenated and played well.

Just because they played well and had a short honeymoon period where krimz also looked like a top 3 player in the world doesnt mean it was all golden. You saw what happened at other tournaments when those players didnt play out of their minds.

Yes i know we can go at this all day. But the addition pf Lekr0 and Golden did seem to revitalize the team thier first tournament they they placed in playofffs so not that bad. But Even before the addition of Golden and Lekr0 Mrimz was still a monster. He just stood out more since thier star olofmeister left, je and flusha weren’t playing big. So he stood out mpre and got better but imo he was always a great consistent player but not a flashy eyecatching one. But I respect your opinion

Hes always been a super consistent player that's one of my favorite things about him, emotional but rarely tilts. Anyway were just gonna have to wait and see if goldens style works on C9 and if he decides to join the team fully if he enjoys NA

Plus they are staying in a team house so he wont be alone. Unlike mixwell who was alone until they brought rush into the team and house.

Yes but they need to replace styko with a fragger and sick and twistzz may not be what they were but they are better than styko in fragging. Also they meed to replace skadoodle. He has not been good since late 2016 except for a breakout preformance at the major where he rolled back the years. -Skadoodle +Nifty/JDM -Styko +a star fragger.

that's better lol after major -skadoodle +nifty (not JDM, he's not good lmao) give styko a chance, he was pretty good on hellraisers, he just prefers a support role atm. However, it would just be better to not pick up golden if Nifty is picked as IGL/AWP. Auti Rush Nifty Styko insert person who gets dropped from Liquid here, so either NAF/nitr0 - or ANY experienced French player (NBK, ScreaM, apEX, etc) ofc any of these players can replace styko if he doesnt play well in his sub/trial process.
2018-07-17 23:31

Yeah if they get nifty then the golden addition isn’t worth it unless he wants to entry frag like he did at ecs for fnatic. He didnt do a bad job but imo he is an IGL first and an entry frag second.

My understanding is that Immortals paid his buyout for C9. SK was merely middle man in that contract.

2018-07-17 08:39
4 replies
But we haven't really been able to compare current JDM to Nifty as JDM hasn't been on a roster in a while. I feel as though JDM is a better pick here just for the fact he is probably cheap and has experience in teams like this. Nifty is coming straight off a Renegades team where he went 12-6, 3rd fragging against SZ absolute. CerQ > Nifty
2018-07-17 10:15
3 replies
JDM being out of the scene for a while doesnt really help your point as theres a chance he be rusty while nifty has been getting more experience. You're right jdm is the easier option but out of the 3 he has the lowest skill ceiling and is known for being very poor with rifles. Basically if you have JDM you cant play the scrappy aggressive style and have to focus on getting the AWP in his hands and enabling him as well as Tim in this situation. Cerq > all NA Awpers
2018-07-17 20:11
2 replies
What i'm saying is we don't know what practice JDM has gotten in since he has not been on a roster. He has been playing a lot of ESEA and FPL if you check his profiles. He has been getting a ton of practice in. He may have gotten better with rifles too. He had a long period to sit out and practice this. When Jdm was in CLG people compared him to prime Skadoodle
2018-07-18 04:51
1 reply
Yes hes a very streaky player though, obviously the AWP role needs to be addressed for c9 and JDM could fit if they employ the right system. I really hope he worked on his rifle skills that would give people no reason to doubt him and would fix some inconsistency issues.

Yesterday's match was something i wasn't expect. For me , cloud9 will lost badly both maps and actually, to be a team who joined 2 players in recently they did very well. STYKO still needs more work to do to help more on the team, GOLDEN for me did a very good match. Ska still can be better, but he did also a great match. Not a bad face of this cloud9.

I'd give it 2 tournaments. Free money for golden though especially when he is moving to the us . Same goes to styko . Team manager / owner is a retarded for sure
