Cloud9 list Zellsis as coach for IEM Katowice 2019

Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro has been submitted as Cloud9's coach for the IEM Katowice 2019 Major.

This means that the North American team will be able to field Zellsis in Maikil "Golden" Selim's place in the event that the Swede is unable to participate at the Major. Being able to use the 20-year-old as a substitute comes with a price, however, as the team will not be able to have a coach guiding the players from the back line in Katowice.

Cloud9's coaching situation has been unclear in recent times, with the team still looking for a replacement for Soham "valens" Chowdhury. Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen attended BLAST Pro Series Lisbon with the team as the players wished to see if they could work with the Canadian, but there have been no updates on the situation since.

Zellsis could be Cloud9's fifth for the IEM Katowice Major

Having joined Cloud9 on trial at the end of December 2018, Zellsis has been part of the roster for two weeks. Formerly of Swole Patrol, he replaced Golden on the roster due to the Swedish tactician's health issues.

Cloud9 will be competing in the IEM Katowice Major's New Challengers Stage, taking place from February 13-17. The North American side have submitted the following line-up for the event:

United States Timothy "autimatic" Ta
United States William "RUSH" Wierzba
France Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey
Sweden Robin "flusha" Rönnquist
Sweden Maikil "Golden" Selim

United States Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro (coach)

Greece forever mad at Macedonia because they don't change the name. And Greece has the power to veto Macedonia in important organisations so they finally agreed to change the name. So Macedonia will potentially join NATO, EU now.

Having an experienced coach during a game is way better than having a rookie who hasnt even proved himself yet. And coaches can call strats on important rounds if they use tac. pauses which is good on game deciding rounds no?

Any change anywhere will affect the team. Doesn't mean there won't be any positive changes too, though.

Dude They need 3/5 players from last major And w/o golden That would not have happened So Zellsis will still play

Ofc valve forces the teams to do things like this..obviously they don’t wanna attend the major with a coach, what would basically be a free loss because in such a case they can’t do anything else because of valves roster lock policies so they take a good player as a coach instead of an intelligent coach who would make his team lose in case he had to play

He said hs was wanting to step down as coach and become an analyst or something, c9 had little choice because golden is there 3rd player but he is sick and cant play so to avoid droppong out they have to make one of there players there coach to stand in

They're doing it because they need 3/5 players from last major to have a spot, if they register with Zellsis, they will only have 2/5 players who were there with c9 last major (Autimatic and Rush). So they need to register with golden (giving them the 3 player requirement), when in reality, golden isn't even coming to the major at all, c9 will pretend that Zellsis is the coach of the team who is standing-in. It's a really high IQ move to play a major with only 2/5 players from the last one lol.

Did you not read the article? They set him as the coach so that c9 could play with him without fielding the core of the roster that attended the faceit major.

I read it but I didn't understand pretty well. In the end, HLTV should've put the REAL lineup that will attend the Major (Zellsis instead of Golden). It was Aleksei's fault to make a mistake on his news.

No because that is not the real lineup that is playing. They are showing the lineup that is technically allowed to play at the major according to Valve's rules and that should Golden miss the event Zellsis will be able to stand in since he is registered as coach.

This is a trendsetter. Can't recall other team that has done this for a Major and you can tell by the majority of the comments that people have no idea what's going on.
2019-01-13 21:27
I assume no one done it before because why would anyone? C9 on the other hand have no choise so obviously they did it. The move on the other hand doesn't seem too complicated to figure out. Why would you even use hltv users as a measurement lol? The majority of hltv users are stupid beyond measure

SK played 2 majors in a row with a stand-in because they didn't apply that and they had no coach as well. It's a new meta, don't act like this is some old school shit. EDIT: btw I didn't use hltv commentators as measurement, I just simply pointed out that the big majority of them don't really understand it but that's it.
2019-01-13 21:38
Are you mental? You stated yourself that no one ever done it for a major, and yes you did measure how high iq this move was with the majority of hltv users clueless brains. "Look at 90% of the comment section not understanding how high IQ'd this move was." Anyway, you even forgot the topic, it about you telling how cleaver this kove was when it actually doesnt even require 2 braincells to figure out and do it... jeez i guess u are one of the majority of braindead hltv users....

Or just not one full of himself who's not capable of recognizing whether this was cleverly done or not. It was a smart play by Cloud9, that's what I mean by "high IQ move", not necessarily that it takes a genius to really understand it. Also, the fact that no one has ever done this for a Major should be understood as something one could praise, or emphasise at least, not really depreciate it as a "you only need 2 braincells to do" type move. Now tell me, were you expecting this to be done? Bet not, and I'd go even farther and bet you have never seen a team do such thing, yet you act so natural towards it as if it is an everyday thing.
2019-01-14 00:27
Basicly what you're saying is that youre a voluminous hypocrite. And again this is not a "high IQ move", you even said it yourself, this is basicly breakfast nowadays to do such moves. Seriously if you believe this is some "high IQ move" i feel sorry for you. Obviously every single person oncluding the coach knows about this rule. It must be really hard to make the process in the brain: 1. OK we got a problem, how can we make golden play? 2. Lets see what the rules say... Thats basicly it lol, must be a "super high IQ move" to do.... And like you said, teams have done it before (yet you think i never seen it before, really??). So why would this even be something to crack? That argument alone should be enought even for my grandmother to understand that this shouldn't even be concidered a "high IQ move". Do you even understand yourself what you just wrote in the middle paragraph of your humongous hypocritical post? How would you know if i expected it to be done or not? Obviously i would since teams have done it before and they needed golden to play, not really that hard to figure out.
2019-01-14 03:07
What people think has happened: Zellsis becomes the coach, no valens boohoo, Golden is back What has actually happened: Zellsis, the player who took Golden's spot but (I think) after the roster lock, is ""being made the coach"" and since Golden ""can't play"", Zellsis, the ""coach"", has to step in and play for him

So, since Zellsis is listed as a coach and Golden as a fifth, does that mean Golden get a sticker without playing and Zellsis doesn’t? Or how does it work? Edit: Yeah I’m aware of 100T getting stickers without playing as well.

TO THE RETARDS THAT THINKS THE HEADLINE IS FAIL Use the only braincell you got left. They "LIST HIM AS COACH", he's not "GOING TO COACH". Two complete different things retards. I know it's hard for you to use your brain from all masturbation to porn, but at least try before spitting out shit comment like that. People like you are the reason we live in a fucked up world.
