Cloud9 add cajunb

The North American organization has made the signing of René "cajunb" Borg official.

The news comes following the report on Monday that cajunb was Cloud9's main target prior to BLAST Pro Series Miami, where they were looking to field in the 29-year-old Danish player.

Dexerto had previously claimed that negotiations between the aforementioned two parties were taking place for a possible deal after the Dane was removed from OpTic's roster at the end of March.

cajunb is officially part of Cloud9

The spot on Cloud9's roster opened up after they parted ways with Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey on Monday, which caused them to lose the majority of the roster that competed at the IEM Katowice Major, where they finished in 9-11th place.

"When you join an organization like Cloud9 there will always be a lot of pressure and expectations. I will do my best together with my teammates to make sure we succeed and make the fans proud." said cajunb on Cloud9's website.

"I'm excited for a veteran like cajunb to begin playing with Cloud9. I believe he can teach our young players a lot from his years of experience in Counter-Strike." said Jonathan Tran, the General Manager of Cloud9's CS:GO division.

"It’s rare to see such an extensive esports career as cajunb has, so we’re really pleased about getting a chance to work with him. Welcome to Cloud9, cajunb!" added Jack Etienne, the owner and CEO of Cloud9.

Cloud9's new roster will make their debut at BLAST Pro Series Miami, which will take place on April 12-13 with a 250,000 prize pool.

Cloud9 now have the following lineup:

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

United States Ronald "Rambo" Kim (coach)

Ikr? If I replaced the one who picks the players. I'd steal Tarik, Stewie2K, and nahtE. Those are some NA talents. Cloud9 won with a full NA Roster. I think they'll only have a chance if it stays that way.
2019-04-02 20:30
What are you on about? This is the best lineup they've had since the major winning team fell apart. Cajunb is a great rifler with the ability to secondary call too. Vice might as well get a chance at tier 1, anytime I've seen him he's been relatively impressive considering his roles in previous teams.
2019-04-02 20:54

Neptune is massively overrated imo. Sick has just signed with Complexity, so I can't see him going anywhere soon. Wardell would be a good signing. Hiko is a free agent atm, so it wouldn't hurt to pick him up.

They signed Zellsis, Vice and cajanb all because they were free. C9 is focusing really hard on their League team and you can tell. They clearly don't want to invest money into their CS team right now.
2019-04-02 20:52
yes because they know whatever they will do doesn't matter,asstralis will win so better save money and make good team in another game

You are right. They are not spending anything. They are probably waiting for some player. I'm just saying they should not be saving money because they do indeed have lots of it

But if they are maybe waiting for a players contract to end, then it would be stupid to waste money on a player they don't want.

Okay. I was trying to be respectful and not bicker like a dumbass. In my opinion no top team should be half assing their top esport team. Just because another team did it does not mean it's okay for other teams. It's like the old saying "if he jumped off a cliff, would you?"

But these orgs are here to make money at the end of the day. You can't continue to throw thousands of dollars at a roster until it works, that's bad business. There is clearly a reason as to why they are doing what they are doing.

Well there last 4 signings (including cajanb) have all been free agents, only flusha had a buyout clause. The team clearly don't want to invest any money into the team right now.

An before spelling N since the word itself is pronounced “en” which has a vowel at the beginning of it.
2019-04-03 09:35
i'm pretty sure it's wrong anyway
2019-04-03 14:42
You're wrong, English is a phonetical language so "A Na" sounds really bad so it's incorrect
2019-04-03 16:07
but a north american doesn't sound so bad at all. i mean, na is an acronym. i don't know if that counts or not

but he did not write north american, he wrote NA which is pronounced as "EN AY" hence in this case there should have been "an"

I will agree that Tim is a great awper but he is ultimately a better rifler and probably one of the best riflers in the world so it would be smart to pick up awper so Tim can focus on what he’s best at

Then to let them go for this???? Just disrespectful and straight up stupid. They even gave up a major spot to throw together more scraps... c9 making some of the CRAZIEST decisions ever and wasting more of rush and autimatics time
2019-04-02 20:16
What do you mean its a waste of time for autimatic they should just make a new optic of NA but they won't. Or autimatic should replace sick in complexity or NRG

We need C9 with all NA not with these European shits. No offense to the eu tho. I know everyone of these EU players are better than C9 members from the past. But it's very hard for them to communicate.
2019-04-02 20:41
There are so many high skilled players in CS atm that the real deciding factor is teamwork and communication. All NA with less skill is better than a few random EU talents who cant communicate quickly and clearly and probably have a different natural playstyle

Wtf happend with cloud9, from having flusha and kio to vice and cajunb
2019-04-02 20:01
I mean vice looks to have some potential so I understand him over zellsis, tf does Cajun have
2019-04-02 20:04
Cajun was the second best rated playeri n OpTic after Konfig and he brings a lot of experience to the table having played on a championship team which is now astralis (TSM formerly). I'm not saying he's a good pick up, but he's definitely not the worst they could have gotten. On the other hand, I would like to see them do really well (potentially even take blast away from astralis) to shut all these people saying C9 is dogshit up. They've still got talented players and a solid igl in Golden they could be top 10 given time
2019-04-03 00:12
they wont take blast, im sorry but with vice and cajunb just joining, well established teams like Astralis, Liquid and even FaZe have a better chance
2019-04-03 11:40
Some teams go through a honeymoon phase where they're really good in the first tournament they play and I'm hoping that happens. Though I'm not delusional I know the odds of C9 actually being a contender for blast are very low

So , Vice that has been performing quite well and had impact in Rogue is only a trial , no contract for him yet , BUT cajunb that has been literally a potato in the server for the last year with no achivements , gets signed by C9 , where is the logic? Whoever takes these decisions in C9 should be fired , this person clearly wants to destroy what once was a major winner organisation with so much potential.

Cajun was the second best player on OpTic after Konfig and I think he's highly underrated. OpTic was a sink hole for Danish talents since the beginning and perhaps this move could revitalize him and pump some new life into his gameplay. Only time will tell.
2019-04-03 00:19
I get that they cant get the players they want, but why not work with what they have? Kio and flusha were pretty decent addition to the team. Flusha wanted to leave or did they cut him? Kio also left because he didn't want to be a part of a team that resets their core every 3 months. Wtf is even going on with golden? C9 should seriously reevaluate their position as a org and how they want to build a winning team again. Its a meme at this point.

They don't really play domestic NA tournaments unless you are talking online. Like at all. C9 is one of those teams that's essentially franchised into the tier 1 circuit even if a franchising system doesn't actually exist. AKA Fnatic, NiP, G2, Liquid, Astralis etc

2019-04-02 20:25
Golden must be really proud of this roster. Hopefully he'll get tired of leading Cl♿ud9 and joins an actual better team (which isn't hard) with decent aspirations
2019-04-02 20:26
Yes golden will join one of the failing Swedish teams that lack leadership soon hopefully, Recycle9 need to go look at NA talent ffs
2019-04-02 20:39
True. This roster won't last long either, so if Fnatic wants him to replace Xizt they'll have to do it a few months before the major. Auti is another that deserved a better team. Imo he's in the top5 in the US
2019-04-02 20:51
Yeah I’d say so in terms of raw skill and accomplishments. But yeah C9 should rebuild an all NA lineup around Tim + Will, vice has potential so they could keep him and also scout some more young talents like wardell. Imo golden would be a better fit for NIP tho, I think the fnatic veterans (JW, Krimz etc.) lost faith him in and Lekr0 isn’t the best IGL.
2019-04-02 21:15
Wardell is insane, but used to be very inconsistent. Haven't watched him in a while. I'm not sure about Rush, he was the weakest player in C9 (before Zellsis joined), and he doesn't seem to be as good as he was. Not sure about Vice. Hope he proves his worth and we'll see. Golden to NiP would be a good move as well. But tbh, I don't think NiP have a long future. GTR and f0rest aren't young and they'll retire eventually. Whether he joins NiP or Fnatic he'll be an upgrade for sure.
2019-04-02 22:50
yeah agreed, I think GTRs retirement is imminent as he just can't deliver the same level of impact as he used to but I think f0rest still has a year or two left in his career at the top.
2019-04-02 23:24
Absolutely, at 31 he's still destroying pros 10 years younger than him. Legend
2019-04-02 23:32
Wardell declined C9's offer. The only other NA talents that are on the market rn that would be worth picking up is TenZ and maybe Zellsis further down the line when he's a bit more developed
2019-04-03 00:26
I had no idea he was even offered a contract. TenZ is still to young and Zellsis is like you said. If this roster is going to play as almost everyone is expecting, they'll be making roster changes soon, once again
2019-04-03 03:30
Seems like solid addition. But i am not convinced by Golden at all.
2019-04-02 20:28
why? the only time he actually got to play IGL with a consistent lineup he won fnatic 2 major tourneys in a row.
2019-04-02 20:32

2019-04-02 20:56
I think they're gonna really lack firepower with this team. Autimatic oviously the star of this team. Rush adds a lot of power if he's in good shape, but it doenst seem like he is atm. They'll probably replace vice for someone with good firepower ( maybe someone like wardell (has to be NA in order to compete at NA minor)) or a major slot (flusha or zellsis, but obviously they'd prefer flusha)

Agreed. I guess I get bringing in an IGL from eu but a whole team? No thanks. Let’s consolidate NA talent on a few teams. I’d rather see them buy out the major eligible part of ghosts roster and maybe wait for one of the eunited guys to develop and snag him

lol from kio to this
2019-04-03 08:20
Just came here for the silver 4 comments talking shit about pro cs players.
2019-04-03 08:20
Why mix mix mix
2019-04-03 08:42
So much upcoming talent in NA. Lets pick up a guaranteed choke artist in his 6th or 7th year as a CSGO player.
2019-04-03 09:55
Cajun What?
2019-04-03 09:56
CAJUN SPICE
2019-04-03 13:50
dont understand why you wouldnt try pick up Sunny... he adds way more firepower
2019-04-03 09:57
Very bad choice
2019-04-03 12:23
Whenever I hear about Cajun I think of Cajun vs Edward whiff at dust2
2019-04-03 13:31
I always think of cajun spice
2019-04-03 13:50
tier 2 to tier 4 with this move :)
2019-04-03 13:32
Are they trying to change roster every for every tournament? seems legit
2019-04-03 13:37
Dude you gotta feel bad for Rush and Autimatic lol.
2019-04-03 13:56

I actually don't know why people are so up in arms over this. For whatever it's worth Cajunb is basically the same level as Kio. Both are good players but neither will ever be top 20 again. Also versatile. They are actually extremely similar in terms of what they can do and where there talent is at. The fact that C9 posted this as a signing and Vice as a trial tells me that this roster is still far from being complete. The fact that these trials are also always young NA players that are sort of FPL shot in the dark types tells me it's an NA player they are ultimately going to try and go after when they do. Or they could sign Konfig in two months when Hecz figures out Optic is just not working. I don't really fucking know but that's what things seem like to me.
2019-04-03 21:56
but cajun is more effective with AWP than kio
2019-04-03 23:21
i hope cajun take AWP role from auti, i mean auti is sick with AWP but so he can focus more on rifle and secondary AWP if needed

dunno if they'd compete with liquid but having autimatic and tarik on one team seems like an obligation for any NA team that wants to be good rn
2019-04-05 22:10
cajun hasnt been good in a long time, how do teams keep trying to get him?
2019-04-04 10:53
