Cloud9 turn to cajunb for BLAST Pro Series Miami - Report

Cloud9 are looking to field former OpTic member René "cajunb" Borg at BLAST Pro Series Miami, according to a report from 1pv.fr.

The 29-year-old is eyed as a replacement for Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey, who was released from his contract on Sunday after little over five months under the organisation.

According to a recent report from Dexerto, cajunb and Cloud9 have held talks in recent days over a permanent deal for the Danish player, who is a free agent following the expiry of his contract with OpTic at the end of March. He spent little over a year with that team, making his final appearance at the WESG World Finals, where the Danes finished 5th-8th.

cajunb looks set to attend BLAST Pro Series with C9

BLAST Pro Series Miami will take place on April 12-13 at the Watsco Center, with six teams vying for the top prize of $125,000. Cloud9 are looking to attend the event with the following line-up:

United States Timothy "autimatic" Ta
United States William "RUSH" Wierzba
Sweden Maikil "Golden" Selim
United States Daniel "vice" Kim (trial)
Denmark René "cajunb" Borg

United States Ronald "Rambo" Kim (coach)

What NA talent? S0m and tenz lol? Theres way better options internationally and the fact that you think nationality matters is honestly pathetic and a waste of time. The best player who can do the job should get the job, not the best player FROM NA.

Well obviously you and i have different interests. I think it's more fun to see NA have success, than C9 as an org. I enjoy watching cs and having a team be successful From a specific region that isn't particularly great. C9 has been prolific in that sense. However, now they are doing away with that attraction for me. I would like to see teams like TL or NRG succeed. Much more than a team like C9 that has integrated talent from over seas.
2019-04-01 23:49
#245
 | 
South Africa nimmaJ 
NA can and is having success without C9 being fully NA, it just opens up players to player on other NA rosters. If you like NA players then be a fan of the teams that sign and stick to NA players, I don't get the attachment to the org. LDLC was prolific in the French scene but 95% of the people that like French CS like G2 and Vitality.

I just told you i'm not attached to the org anymore, and enjoy NRG, and TL more. are you missing something? I literally said I'm not a fan of C9 anymore because they are outsourcing.... I'm saying i want NA to have success with NA players. that's what i enjoy. NA is notorious for being the underdog. I like to see the underdog work hard and get better. I don't like to see the underdog take resources from the other regions to compete with those regions. That's not Enjoyable to me. I conceded that you and i have different interests. this isn't an opinion piece. you're not going to change my interests. I'm not going to change yours. I'm simply stating It's not fun to watch. :)
2019-04-02 17:15
"the fact that you think nationality matters" ...you realise it's perfectly valid to support a team because they're from one country, right?

I do but if you think it's fair to keep one player on a team over another player from a different country who is capable of doing the job at a higher level then you are mentally ill.
2019-04-02 02:13
I do think it's fair. There's a lot of factors you're basically ignoring when you say that the higher skilled player should get the job over someone else. For example, Cloud 9 was on the verge of picking up Infinite, who was a hot prospect and definitely more skilled, but they decided not to pick him up because of his racist remarks being revealed during that time.
2019-04-02 22:50
#278
 | 
South Africa nimmaJ 
I dont see how what I typed implies that I'm ignoring those factors. Specific players have nothing to do with the topic, the most optimal player should get the job.
2019-04-03 07:22
Your message ignores the other factors a business thinks of when picking a player, and I simply used Infinite as an example of that, since you'd probably agree that Infinite was a "more optimal" choice than Zellsis was.
2019-04-03 09:30
#280
 | 
South Africa nimmaJ 
Infinite was more optimal mechanically but not personally both factors attribute to how optimal the player is. And no I still havent ignored any business factors you're just assuming that I am because you used the term "higher skilled" which is not the point. Skill is only one factor.
2019-04-03 21:38
"I do but if you think it's fair to keep one player on a team over another player from a different country who is capable of doing the job at a higher level then you are mentally ill"

"At a higher level" "the job" The job of being a CS player is much more than skill in the server, would you not agree?
2019-04-04 00:10
Would nationality not apply then?
2019-04-06 11:00
#296
 | 
South Africa nimmaJ 
Because if I'm Danish but can speak fluent English and am better than your current CS players and am willing to move to NA then how why would you pick and American player who is worse at CS?
2019-04-06 20:07
Branding and marketing, as well as entry into nationality based tournaments.
2019-04-07 14:14
#298
 | 
South Africa nimmaJ 
So you can only brand players from NA? C9 was thinking about getting scream for a bit due to his popularity. And that's literally only WESG. Which with golden theyve already conceded attending so that is irrelevant.
2019-04-07 20:26
Was the original comment you replied to not talking about the fact that C9 did away with NA talent? Besides, it's easier and more appealing to brand your team as 1 nationality, as it's easier to attract fans.

I think autimatic should stay in cloud9. He's the only OG member left. But yeah everyone's right. Why is C9 recruiting some randos when they are rich af. Why not steal s1mple and fns cause s1mple is like the autimatic of Na'Vi. I really think that realeasing flusha was a bad idea anyways.

To be fair, the offer from mibr was while he still had a team of major winners and i assume he rejected the offer from faze because he didn't want to live in eu.

2019-04-01 23:39
they needs to scrap the whole roster somehow i think. an option, though expencive would be to offer an other already established roster more money than they get already and work from that. or maybe look for a whole new EU roster. pls c9 fans dont hate me. im not an analyst. but this scrappy roster they have going on cant work for ever.

with the current rules they do coz GOLDEN has been listed as their 6th but it could change though
2019-04-01 12:31
Golden doesn't hold a spot because he wasn't even at the major. Zellsis Flusha and Kio have it so c9 will be forced to go through the EU qualifiers for the major if they stick with Cajun
2019-04-01 18:57

Rush, cajun and golden
2019-04-01 13:03
Golden is actually a pretty good fragger considering he's IGL. And Cajun actually also can frag pretty well. Rush is inconsistent but not that bad at all and when he's feeling it he's a beast
2019-04-01 13:09

RUSH won a major entry fragging and his skill hasnt decayed, he still a solid roleplayer. Golden is a decent pretty aggressive fragger for an IGL and cajun was literally the only decent thing about optic besides games where k0nfig would just take over but they have become very rare.

Why the richest organization in the cybersport never spends a penny on new players for their csgo team? Flusha, kio, vice, Golden, Styko and Cajunb, these are the guys who have been signed for free! Don’t they remember when they actually spent money on new players (transfer from Optic tarik-rush) they ended up winning the major! This whole situation about c9 roster is absolutely ridiculous.

I actually think it could work if the chemistry is good. Autimatic: is always consistent. Golden: pretty stable fragger Rush: Inconsistent but a beast when he's feeling it Vice: looks like a decent fragger Cajun: Decent fragger

Golden isn't a great fragger, Rush is up and down, Vice hasn't really been tested at this level yet... Autimatic will have to go off pretty much every map

What do you mean by that? You think they can just poach any player they want. You realize contracts do exist and that if the player wants to stay or the org wants them to stay theres nothing you can do. You cant just go out and buy Nikos and twistzz. Who are you even leading this towards? Who do you suggest they "buy out" because I almost guarantee whoever you're thinking of is contracted and content
2019-04-01 22:17
What I mean by that is that they seem to be picking up players that was recently kicked from their previous teams and was considered top players and at the peak of their careers many years ago - together with affordable younglings and dark horses that never seem to stay on the team for more than a couple of tournaments at most before they get kicked. It's not a coincidence that they swap players like they swap underwear, they're clearly having trouble finding the right players.

Golden was sick so they were obviously going to trial players until he came back in his spot Flushas mother died. R.I.P.and he is rumored to be coming back Tarik wanted fns kicked so he could IGL again and then snaked them. There have been quite extenuating circumstances to the situation. I cant think of many teams that have been more unlucky.
2019-04-01 23:35
There has obviously been a lot of really questionable recruitments. Nobody can question that. If you think you can build a top team around players like Zelssis, Slemmy, STYKO, kioShiMa and FNS there's clearly something missing. It's not like they've had top talent beside from automatic to build a team around.
2019-04-01 23:58
#283
 | 
South Africa nimmaJ 
Zellsis? 2nd option infinite was exposed but is mechanically one of the best up and coming players. Slemmy was a last minute trial because he was previously in the org. FNS didnt get a proper shot due to tarik. You're clearly underrating kioshima dude is a major winner and played some great CS for them. And styko is a great support player and also played decent. He did so much for mouz in terms of comms and organization and is an excellent teammate. This is literally the first time golden has been back, they were clearly waiting for him as seen by the fact that they didnt trial any real IGLs. People keep saying c9 needs to."build up" but that's exactly what they're trying to do with golden. Please tell me who you would of/would like for them to give a trial to.
2019-04-04 06:02
Haha dude, I don't care for excuses, I know the story behind the roster changes. All I'm saying is that in hindsight they have made tons of terrible roster changes and weird recruitments. Cajunb is most likely going to be a disaster as well. He's just been kicked (like pretty much all the other players from Europe that cloud9 has targeted) and has a history of being lazy and unmotivated. Had his prime years ago.
2019-04-04 10:09
#287
 | 
South Africa nimmaJ 
Kio also had a history of being lazy and unmotivated, that's why hes no longer in the French scene. He also already peaked. Doesnt mean they both cant still be valuable parts of a team at their non peaks and was the best performer on c9 over their last few events. And despite the fact that cajun was kicked he was optics and 2nd best player and most consistent.
2019-04-04 15:48
They still haven't achieved anything worth mentioning since they started this moronic roster frenzy last year. And kio got kicked, just as cajunb will be. Individual performances doesn't really matter when you can't build a team that works.
2019-04-04 17:44
#289
 | 
South Africa nimmaJ 
And they couldnt build a team that works because they didnt have a real IGL because they were waiting for golden to recover, thank you for circling around the point.
2019-04-04 18:57
Haha yeah, that must've been why they've kicked like 6 players in a year with nothing to show for it. Stop trying to defend something that obviously has failed terribly, both with and without Golden.

They sure as hell haven't succeeded in anything, and that's a failure to me. At least that what I would think if I were in charge of the organisation. I think they're making stupid and pointless roster changes that hasn't achieved anything (it has even cost them their spot at the majors), and you think they're on the right path but at the same time are having bad luck. Let's agree to disagree and leave it at that.

Not really when they were good in the major for example he was easily the worst player on C9 in that major they won, after that they were god awful and he was baiting for stats, they weren't winning so it's obvious him being alive last every round and them consistently losing he was baiting for stats and other players in the team were having more impact.

Youre actually just making things up gyazo.com/9532f0226161014c91fb69d678a517.. 2nd best on c9 1.2 rating at the major This is tim during their strongest period hltv.org/stats/teams/players/5752/Cloud9.. This is him since then hltv.org/stats/players/8735/autimatic?st.. hltv.org/stats/teams/players/5752/Cloud9.. Kio was better at like 1 event where he had a 1.15 rating and it was hardly a big event. Not saying kio didnt have good performances, but Auti has and still is their best performer and even went through a demanding role swap and still maintained form.
2019-04-02 08:28
2nd image you are posting he has an insane k/d compared to his team mates yet only a 0.02 higher rating right there my point is proven and this discussion is finished peace.

2019-04-02 08:30
Just look at the stats you posted they clearly show he's baiting for stats, Tarik has almost half his K/D and his rating is 0.06 higher, less frags, higher impact read my first comment again before even replying to me with shit that proves exactly what I said. Also go rewatch the demos of the major they won and then stfu, all the biggest impact plays throughout that major were not by Auti EVER, it was all Ska, Tarik & Stewie.
2019-04-02 08:32
#262
 | 
South Africa nimmaJ 
Tarik has a higher rating because he won a higher ratio of maps. Notice tim has over 100 more maps than him. Also account for the fact that tim is a passive, cerebral, clutch player, not an aggressive player, he is naturally going to have less deaths because he is not entrying like tarik. Yes stewie and Ska had impact plays, that is their job they are aggressive riflers and AWPers, tim is a consistent rock of a player who makes the correct play, not the flashly one. He played well and had great decision making, me rewatching the demo isnt going to tell me that autimatic played bad, and you're quite delusional if you think he did. Also the fact that you think you can tell if someone is baiting or not purely through stat anomalies is hilarious. And the fact that you think "baiting" is even a valid argument is even more pathetic. Tim had both the highest k/d and rating throughout that period so either you're telling me -not dying is bad or -lower rating is better than higher rating either way your argument is based in pure delusion.
2019-04-02 08:37
I won't read that wall of text, just analyze the stats you replied to me with, he get an insane amount of exit frags and loses the round almost every time I never mentioned shit about him dying less, don't change the subject by taking what I said out of context, he's shit at clutching and he baits for stats.

hltv.org/stats/teams/players/5752/Cloud9.. Lmao, so your argument is that his team dies he gets put in an unwinnable situation he gets kills saving his weapon and not only is it his fault for losing the round but he also gets blamed for saving? Again pure delusion coming from your statements. I never mentioned shit about him dying less, Wow you must be seriously ill. You clearly did, because you mentioned his K/D, the D in K/D stands for deaths. You said his K/D was noticeably higher than his rating and that implies that hes baiting. Do you not even realize what you're typing? Not even sure what your arguing anymore, the initial point was that Autimatic is the best player on c9, you keep saying that hes bad and shit at clutching but dont even seem to be able to name a player that was or is currently better than him on C9.
2019-04-02 08:47
I mentioned K/D in comparison to his team mates it's irrelevant to my actual point which is he baits for stats, low impact, garbage player who never clutches anyway let's just agree to disagree because you're clearly on his dick. On your last point many garbage players have cycled through C9 org in recent times, all of them are bad but in terms of impact they were doing better than Auti, Auti will just bait and get some exits, try save etc
2019-04-02 15:56
#268
 | 
South Africa nimmaJ 
And then i explained why his K/D is lower, because hes a passive player and dies less. Theres valid proof of him clutching so thats just objectively false. You didnt even name a player that was better than him on C9 yet continue to say that hes not that best, that reeks of ignorance. Hes been the highest rated player on C9 for over a year and also has the highest impact rating on the team due to multikills and clutches. None of the players C9 have cycled through are better than autimaitc, otherwise theyd be doing well o other relevant teams or C9 would have contracted them. Have fun with your delusional view of the game and mental gymnastics thats allow you to believe falsified realities, and thanks for conceding the argument :)
2019-04-02 16:04
I don't think he was the best or worse they were all kind of shit/average over the last 2 years. I didn't even know this was an argument btw, just talking shit to a Autimatic dick rider who makes up pure shit to try to over rate the kid but that's fine you do what you want to do.

Its quite hilarious how many times you contradicted and were factually wrong this conversation. Tarik has almost half his K/D and his rating is 0.06 higher, less frags, higher impact Wrong Autimatic had a higher impact rating and rating low impact, garbage player who never clutches Had the highest impact rating and most clutches of any c9 player in the last 12 months and during their strong period he get an insane amount of exit frags No stats or evidence to back that up, literally just spewing bs. On your last point many garbage players have cycled through C9 org in recent times, all of them are bad but in terms of impact they were doing better than Auti None of them performed better than autimatic while they were on c9 besides kio for one tournament. Another thing neither of us mentioned is that he can't AWP for shit either fucking terrible awp yet he plays awp... Literally forced into the role and has .38 AWP kills a round this year. And you're the one changing the subject constantly and leaving topics behind because you get proven wrong but dont acknowledge it and have too big of an ego to admit that you were objectively wrong :)
