Cloud9 pull out of ECS Season 7 Week 2, Bad News Bears serve as replacement

Cloud9 have officially pulled out of ECS Season 7 Week 2 due to a roster shortage, replaced by Bad News Bears.

Since March 4, Cloud9 have been unable to find a suitable replacement for the recently-departed Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro, which served as the reason for their withdrawal from the second week of ECS Season 7 NA League.

The decision to pull out could be as a result of talks with potential candidates, detailed in a recent report from Dust2.dk. According to the Danish website, Cloud9 are in talks with the OpTic duo of Jakob "JUGi" Hansen and Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke, who are said to be joining the North American organisation in the near future.

Cloud9 will be missing out on ECS Season 7 Week 2

Cloud9 were scheduled to face Complexity in the second week of ECS Season 7, duking it out for a placement at the LAN finals of the event held at the SSE Arena Wembley in London, UK this summer. Bad News Bears will serve as the team's replacement, taking on Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz and company.

Below are the updated match-ups for ECS Season 7 NA League Week 2:

Monday, March 18

23:00 - United States NRG vs. United States Spacestation
23:00 - United States eUnited vs. Brazil INTZ
02:00 - Brazil FURIA vs. Brazil Luminosity
02:30 - United States Bad News Bears vs. North America Complexity

Given the team is able to reconsolidate their roster in time, Cloud9 are expected to return to play in future weeks of the ECS Season 7 NA League.

How should they credit original source if they can't mention it? Just because there is same owners behind both sites doesn't mean reporter doesn't deserve credit.

Getting so annoying how they are set on picking up euro players.

when NA MDL’s best prospect is furia it means that there are no reliable new talents for plucking.

NA scene is still quite weak, best players are in teams like Liquid or NRG. It's better for them to go for EU players

kick kio and keep RUSH, what a joke
2019-03-18 15:06
Autimatic is such a good player he should just leave and join another organization. Just saying. I think he is a really smart player. He's been so consistent even when c9 is playing bad, he's been steping up for his by using the awp.

Because they are a north American org? They are even getting team offices soon :/. It'd be 10 times harder to suddenly uproot everything and move across the world. Not Even like CS is their main team. League is where they focus mostly.

When someone ll realize that improvement means consistent training day by day with the same roster...its probably take more than a year to be ideal and they still keep changing roster like every month.
2019-03-18 21:08
Imagine having reputation as first na org to win major and then fucking destroy its original roster
2019-03-19 10:57
don't kick kio kio is a good player & in fact only 2 decent player cloud9 currently has 1- autimatic, 2- kio

Sad news but it was expected.
