Infinite to trial for Cloud9 in place of Golden - Report

Gage "Infinite" Green is expected to try out with Cloud9 for three months to take over Maikil "Golden" Selim's place on the roster, according to a Dust2.us report.

Infinite, the former AZIO and Spacestation player, is set to have a try-out period with the North American organization, Cloud9, to take over Golden's spot. The Swede has been sidelined for months due to health issues which saw him miss part of BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen and the ECS Season 6 Finals and BLAST Pro Series Lisbon in their entirety.

Infinite close to moving to LA for three months

The move is expected to come ahead of the IEM Katowice 2019 roster lock, which is set to kick in on New Year's day. Cloud9 are slotted to be in attendance at the Major's New Challengers stage, although it is as of now unknown if they will lose their status due to the team not retaining their core from the FACEIT Major in London.

Were the trial to move forward, a new rule with emergency trades was put in place for situations like this ahead of IEM Katowice, but it is as of yet unknown if this transfer would qualify and what the repercussions would be.

The 20-year-old, who first emerged competitively in 2017 with time spent in CLG Academy, will then have three months to show he has what it takes to make the cut and stay on the team. Not being an in-game leader, it is expected one of the other four members in the roster will take over the role from Golden.

With this change, Cloud9 would look as follows:

United States Timothy "autimatic" Ta
United States William "RUSH" Wierzba
France Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey
Sweden Robin "flusha" Rönnquist
United States Gage "Infinite" Green (trial)

United States Soham "valens" Chowdhury (coach)

if golden is still on the team, just "benched" in a rotating lineup do they still lose the major slot? are sub players even allowed in csgo?
2018-12-27 22:16
2018-12-27 22:17
#110
Rickeh | 
United Kingdom Johal 
so they have to use valens
2018-12-27 22:23
no, golden signed up as player, new player which should play the major as coach and before the first game you switch both
2018-12-27 22:27
this is kinda what I was thinking, but it just uses the coaching slot... kind of an odd loophole instead of just allowing a 6th player as a sub, which I hope csgo moves towards in the future to allow stylistic changes against different teams

2018-12-27 22:41

United Kingdom Johal 
They said once nex comes back hes gonna be the 6th man
2018-12-28 14:14
thats pretty cool, I just dont know why theyre trying that when the scene doesnt fully support 6 man rosters(to my knowledge)
2018-12-28 14:14
#431
Rickeh | 
United Kingdom Johal 
Probably because if anything happens, like what is happening with nex, happens again, they can just swap them out and it wont matter
2018-12-28 14:18
so who plays when nex is in Edit: I am just confused why keep 6 players, when one is temporary while nex is out
2018-12-28 14:25
#433
Rickeh | 
United Kingdom Johal 
Nex or xantares will be a back ip just in case someone in the team cant play, i think with 6 players in the line up they will be alowed to swap players mid event and be fine
2018-12-28 14:32
oh, I didnt realize the rules for events were set up for swapping mid event. If there is no rule against it(outside major seat issues) I love the idea
2018-12-28 14:35

I think they are set up like that, atleast dreamhack is

but in this situation idk if it would work. zonic played on the team to get them into quarters as valens didnt play with them. hence valens doesnt hold a slot but zonic did.

As Astralis played with coach zonic in the match that clinched the quarter-final spot, and thus their Legend status, the following players would have to form a trio to remain invited for ELEAGUE's Major, Valve confirmed to HLTV.org: Denmark Nicolai "device" Reedtz Denmark Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen Denmark Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander Denmark Danny "zonic" Sørensen zonic held the spot not dupreeh. hence why gla1ve was signed before the EU Minor. Valens doesn't hold a spot as a coach. hence why coaches don't get stickers even if they play.
2018-12-29 15:00
...sign golden up as a player, the new player as a coach and switch them before the first game starts
2018-12-29 15:12

2018-12-27 22:09
+1
2018-12-27 22:33
I initially had him pegged somewhere along the lines of Ghost/Rogue/coL, but he must have impressed somebody on C9. Infinite has pretty good potential, and is a solid gamble all things considered (state of NACS). However, for a team potentially competing at a major while having little-to-no LAN experience... talk about work being cut out.

2018-12-27 23:03
I disagree. If you asked people who knew what they were talking about when Stewie was on Splyce (not necessarily SKDC) and was grinding out 10-mans, everyone would have told you to "buy" that stock, expect possibly the old guard.

Yeah difference is n0thing/ska/ auti helped Stewie develop. If they give the young talent some wisdom it may work.
2018-12-27 23:49
I think Stewie's self-drive contributed to his success more than the apparent infinite wisdom from n0thing and/or skadoodle. We are talking about a player who picked up calling for C9 quite early from the get-go after the n0thing project failed. With Stewie the writing was on the wall, I don't see it in this case tbh. Doesn't take away from the fact that infinite clearly has potential.

Infinite is great but very inexperienced. Maybe he will be the next stewie but idk what theyre gonna do cause this is not the core of the faceit major... they have kio flusha and infinite and dont have Styko/ska/Golden wonder how this olays out.
2018-12-27 22:29
stewie never called over pros niggers tho
2018-12-28 04:39

Cloud9 might want to retain a NA core, also Autimatic and Flusha might have decided to share the IGL role together to lessen the workload. This leads them not truly needing an IGL player but more of a fragger player Who knows what actually happening in those shady back rooms of orgs lol

Well this is as a standin for the major not a normal event. if it was for any event like chicago or blast,it would have been ok. So its better to choose a player with more experience in big stages. Also C9 needs to qualify for next stage and make sure they do't go 0-3,otherwise they will have to start from minor next time.It will be more harder if they are going to became EU majority team in future.

I actually like this move, sure infinite isnt the obvious choice for c9. But if you follow the scene closly, you may know that he is really skilled. Additionaly, c9 should stay a na Team. Both kio and flusha are good Players, but being american is somehow attached to the c9 brand. Therefore they should nurture american talents and trial them to build a promising Team around the veterans

First off, Refresh stated before playing for Cloud9 his intentions were NOT to join as he can't move to the USA due to personal reasons. Ex6 and Karrigan both turned down Cloud9's offer so they are a no. And sean was also asked and also turned it down. Doesn't leave a lot on the table to pick from. So Kio will take over IGL, while they trial infinite and look for another.... :)

he played with fragsters for the minor qualifier. im not sure on the roster rules but since he already played for a team involved with this major, im not sure if hed be able to play for c9 at katowice. so if c9 did sign refrezh, then theyd still need to find a sub for golden for the major and thats just a lot more effort than its worth
2018-12-28 07:54
so has this guy already been removed? Today's PC society probably wouldn't take guy like this anyway, with this it will be someone else in the end for sure xdddd
2018-12-28 07:32
who?
2018-12-28 07:57
Maybe he'll be better than stew
2018-12-28 08:19
At least his rating is higher than stewies two years ago

Everyone is like "WHO?". People said same thing about stewie2k when he was on trial to C9. I'm not defending this guy but I won't judge him or C9 decision yet.
2018-12-28 09:09
nah nice try but hes a bot

Dude, people said same thing about stewie. People said same thing when Pasha joined neo's team in 1.6. Pasha had some fans but still most people said "he's not good enough, he's not luq". He replaced luq and after 10 months he was dominating pro scene. Im not saying that this noname guy is ready but I can't judge him yet. CS suprised me too many times.
2018-12-28 09:21
ew c9 are so dead, shocking pickup.. why bother
2018-12-28 09:11
you said the same thing about stew
2018-12-28 22:35

2018-12-28 09:54
They did the same thing with Stewie and look he is decent player
2018-12-28 11:09
>some no name >karrigan, refrezh, tarik, ex6tenz, even fucking syrson pick c9: no-name
2018-12-28 09:43
I think I just saw a twitter post by ceo of C9 saying they havent made any additions to their roster, I think it included any trials etc
2018-12-28 09:47

or people who had family in slavery probably 90% of the black people in the USA. There is a reason why people say only black guys have the right to use the N word.
2018-12-28 12:32
lol slavery which happened 200-300 years ago they sure can relate to slavery :D Finns were slaves too to Russians or Swedes do you see us whining about it?
2018-12-28 13:03
Have they a word that is directly connected to this?
2018-12-28 13:05
prolly ye but they havent been bitching about it last 600 years. And besides jamal 17years old gucci clothes and newest iphone on his pocket knows shit about slavery. They only whine about it to get social points.
2018-12-28 13:06
I just lost all respek I had for C9 Instead of buying refrezh, one of the only black players in pro scene, they bought a racist cunt

Refrezh is free and C9 tries Infinite. RIP kio, from being lead by Happy_2_Majors to being lead by random MDL star who played in NA Dignitrash lul

Infinite is a pretty good player and all, but unless Refrezh is going to North/OpTic, it wouldn't make sense to me.
2018-12-28 15:22
literally esea rank S random player rofl
2018-12-28 15:39

Very interesting because a top team is giving an unknown NA fpler a chance to compete with the best in the World. Interested to see how he does. But Refrehz was so good why not get him? And 3 months is a long time so they most think highly of him recruiting him from fpl.
