Cloud9 revamp roster with four new players

Cloud9 have revealed their new roster, featuring four new players, including Damian "⁠daps⁠" Steele and Oscar "⁠mixwell⁠" Cañellas, who will team up with Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta.

Cloud9 announced their new starting five on "The 9s", the organization’s live stream, bringing in daps, mixwell, Kenneth "⁠koosta⁠" Suen, and Tyson "⁠TenZ⁠" Ngo to join the only remaining player from the previous lineup, autimatic.

The four new players will replace Maikil "⁠Golden⁠" Selim, René "⁠cajunb⁠" Borg, Daniel "⁠vice⁠" Kim, and William "⁠RUSH⁠" Wierzba as Cloud9 look to shake things up after the squad failed to qualify for the StarLadder Major's Americas Minor—following losses to The Quest and New Identity—, and finished in 9-12th place at the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals with a single victory over DETONA and losses at the hands of Astralis and G2.

daps and mixwell will reunite in Cloud9

This move will see daps and mixwell reunite after the duo played together under the OpTic banner in 2016 and attended the ESL One Cologne Major that same year. koosta was without a team after being released by Ghost, while TenZ acted as a stand-in for teams like ATK and Lazarus after leaving Bad News Bears, even helping the latter to qualify for the Americas Minor.

James "⁠JamezIRL⁠" Macaulay, formerly of Ghost, has been hired to coach the team and will have the backing of Soham "⁠valens⁠" Chowdhury, who will still be active in the squad's practices and review sessions.

Two of the former players are no longer bound to the Cloud9 organization, vice and cajunb, while Golden has been loaned out to NiP for the Berlin Major and RUSH has been placed on the bench.

valens said the following about the need to rebuild on "The 9s":

"After the Major we never tried to rebuild completely, we just tried to slot in players and figure out if we can bring that kind of magic form back, we were just trying to slot in players after Stew and tarik left and Skadoodle retired, hoping to have another run when we just needed to rebuild."

With the addition of these five new members, Cloud9 is now:

United States Timothy "⁠autimatic⁠" Ta
Canada Damian "⁠daps⁠" Steele
Spain Oscar "⁠mixwell⁠" Cañellas
United States Kenneth "⁠koosta⁠" Suen
Canada Tyson "⁠TenZ⁠" Ngo

United States James "⁠JamezIRL⁠" Macaulay (coach)

United States William "⁠RUSH⁠" Wierzba (Benched)
Sweden Maikil "⁠Golden⁠" Selim (On loan with NiP)

2019-07-03 12:48
sounds racist
2019-07-03 13:14
Sounde like he's too bad for t3 EU teams so goes to t2 NA teams.
2019-07-03 13:22
Nah it's just weird because i've watched some C9 interview and autimatic and he was really confused over the bs golden/cajun spread.

+1 Lacking brain , overpeek , bad decision making , using 1 sensitivity , luck based player.
2019-07-03 12:49
+1 I’m not sure about koosta. I’m not sure about daps either as NRG got rid of him because he couldn’t frag enough. Even on NRG with big fraggers like cerq and tarik. It’s a problem. Now with players with relatively low ratings that aren’t big fraggers. It’ll be even more of a problem.

Don't worry our boy will be revived now. He's now a rifler. Rifler auti = 85% win rate. He's on par with twistzzz and elige on aim wise but I doubt he can use SG/AUG better than Elige.
2019-07-03 05:46
Where the hell are people getting the idea that they will all of a sudden be a top 10 team? Koosta? This guy was cut from Liquid after 4 months and only recently, more than two years later, has he played in any significant tournament. He's a tier 4 player. Mixwell? A complete washup who has been tiddling around in tier 10 cs for the last two years over in Spain. Has always been overrated. Tier 3/4. TenZ? Completely unproven. daps? Potentially NA's best IGL, top 3 for sure. He is a master at molding rosters into calculated cs and using everyone to their potential. That said, it's much easier to do with young and hungry players like over in NRG. There's a ton of experience now in this lineup, just not top level CS experience. His lack of firepower will be more noticeable in this lineup. Still a tier 2/3 player on his own. This lineup will likely suck. Can't believe Autimatic threw away his entire career for the organization. Must've became a giant pothead, content with his accomplishments and fine with just skating by. It's a comfy lifestyle out there I'll give him that...
2019-07-03 05:46
Movistar Riders with mixwell and lowel is a tier2 team Bro
2019-07-03 10:29
LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL
2019-07-03 15:39
Top 31 :P
2019-07-03 15:41
liquipedia.net/counterstrike/MSI/MGA/201.. liquipedia.net/counterstrike/ESL/Masters.. Tier 2 alright.....Top 31 tier 2? That's a fluke ranking in itself. This was a tier 6 team at best.
2019-07-03 15:44
I don't really agree with your assessments of koosta and mix well (koosta is more tier 3, and mixwell was trying to grow the Spanish scene), but at the same time I don't think their additions to the team is going to make them top 5 superstars right away. It'll take a bit of time, but I reckon cloud 9 will become a top 20 team sooner or later.
2019-07-03 15:49
So they will be tier 3/4 then (20 rank)? Not top 10? Definitely not top 7?
2019-07-03 15:54
I don't really know how you rank your tiers so I can't really say for sure if they'll be a tier 3/4 team, but I reckon they'll be the type of team to be top 20, and occasionally break into top 10 before falling back down.
2019-07-03 22:50
What you're saying about tenz is exactly what people said about Stewie, and look at how he turned out. Tenz has a lot of potential to be a star player, I think the other more experienced players on this roster will develop him really well. I agree about koosta, he's a bit of a risk. Very inconsistent and whiffs too much. Still, he has his good moments. He could work out if he has good consistency. I think that's why they've kept rush on the bench, so he can take back his place if one of these players doesn't work out. I don't think mixwell was playing for movistar riders because he wasn't good enough for other teams, that was his own personal project in the name of the Spanish scene. He's a pretty good player, and I think he's a better awper than koosta. Autimatic, Mixwell and Tenz could all be solid riflers, koosta can awp if he's performing, and daps is a top NA igl to lead them all. And they still have rush to fall back on if something doesn't work (I'm actually pretty sad to see him go). This roster definitely has potential. I'm not saying they're going to suddenly become top 10 but this is C9s most promising lineup since kio and flusha were on the team.

You are right, Wardell instead of Koosta and this roster would look insanely better.

wouldve rather see them pick up wardell instead of mixwell.. mixwell hasn't proven himself in ages. If he doesn't play like a monster, this line-up will lack firepower. I do think daps is a very good pick up, and I'm interested to see how he will help tenz develop. Still excited to see them play though.
2019-07-03 04:18
Wardell refused cloud9 offer
2019-07-03 04:48
C9 hasn't made an offer to Wardell since the one like a year ago. It's likely Mixwell was much cheaper and they probably felt he was better. Which he probably is especially if Autimatic is going to continue AWPing.
2019-07-03 04:57
koosta will be main awper mixwell dont even like awping
2019-07-03 05:01
There's literally 0 chance Koosta is the main AWPer. If Mixwell doesn't AWP anymore then Autimatic is going to primary.
2019-07-03 05:03
no
2019-07-03 05:11
What's the point in having koosta in your team if he's not awping lol
2019-07-03 08:45
He wasn't the main awper in ghost gaming, that was wardell. And they did quite alright.

In 2020 they will change either Koosta or Tenz for Tarik (because NRG will drop but Tarik will perform well). After Tarik is there for a month they will take in ImaPet as a Coach (they change coach too often anyway). They will hit the best results C9 ever had (Boston major excluded) and then Daps will be replaced by Stanislaw. Stanislaw will get far in the first 3 events and then the team will just stagnate to a rank 32 spot and stay there.
2019-07-03 04:18

He probably saw the roster they were trying to make and said nah. If that is the case he's a smart man. Sunny will end up on a top team before long. Perhaps if ENCE fall into a slump he might end up there.

his salary will be reduced to at least 60-70% + he will have to stream
2019-07-03 04:39
so he'll make 18k/month
2019-07-03 07:52

Who is running the c9 CSGO division? It's almost like they are purposely trying to build bad teams. I don't see this team going anywhere. They might be a solid top20 team with an occasional upset against top 10 teams. My only hope for them is that daps has a track record of building good teams so maybe he can work his magic again.
2019-07-03 04:40
+10000 -Koosta +WARDELL Daps (Entry / IGL) WARDELL (AWPer) TenZ (Rifler) Autimatic (Lurker) Mixwell (Rifler / 2nd AWPer) This is OK.
2019-07-03 04:47
I agree that WARDELL would be a huge upgrade. Koosta has never really shown anything worthy of being on a top team. I don't know much about TenZ so can't speak on him. Mixwell has potential but has never impressed me all that much. He had some amazing times on Optic a couple years ago but hasn't done much since. Autimatic is a tier 1 player for sure, and daps is a proven igl. As a whole, I don't have high hopes for this team. I wouldn't mind being wrong because I don't want them to fail, and it is always nice to have more teams mixing things up at the top. Time will tell...
2019-07-03 04:53
I am geussing you have not observed the NA scene that closely, Tenz is the current hottest rising star out of the NA scene that is not part of a major team. He has been playing as the most wanted stand-in for a lot of teams in NA. Getting Wardell has a high buyout and they want mixwell, since he can awp and has experience with playing with daps. To C9, having both the benefits of having mixwell, compared to Wardell with his high skill level and high buyout price.
2019-07-03 09:50
Thanks for the info. You are correct in saying I haven't followed the scene that closely. I don't watch near as much CS as I use to, so the current crop of rising talents escape my notice. I don't watch twitch outside of CSGO LANS and and pretty much only give things related to CSGO a small amount of my time. You give me hope that perhaps this team will be better than I thought.

2019-07-03 04:48
THIS ROSTER WILL SLAY IF THEY STAY TOGETHER FOR MORE THAN 2 WEEKS
2019-07-03 04:46
Daps - well yeah,everyone knew that would happen Mixwell - I mean, he was a beast in 2016, but that was a long time ago... Tenz - no idea who this is. Is he any good? Koosta - what. the. fuck. Really? That's the best you can get? He has shown more than enough evidence he can't cut it on an actually good team. This really seems like just another couple month project that accomplishes absolutely nothing
2019-07-03 04:48
mixwell = GOD tenz = future twistzz koosta = decent stfu
2019-07-03 04:51
well you have mouseSpaz in flair and dont know who's tenz? Im shoked.

Okey then. But how you dont know TENZ lmao
2019-07-03 04:54
I don't get a lot of time to watch live games anymore. I still follow scores and such at the big events, but not nearly as closely as a used to be able to
2019-07-03 05:12
idk then how you missed him lol. He was the best player in MDL this season. A lot of potentional this guy has.
2019-07-03 05:13
See, thats the issue. The little time i do have to watch, i don't watch MDL. I really only follow the tier1/1.5 tournaments, because i just cant devote enough time to the lower levels
2019-07-03 05:35
I'm not sure about this team tbh. There are players that I've barely seen playing,and others that I doubt that they 'll perform well. But as a fan of M.Riders, who has been watching Mixwell matches for the last year, I can assure you that his level is outstanding. Now that he has a better team, I'm sure he will perform well, just like he has done in Spain.

Mixwell in 2019 OMEGALUL
2019-07-03 04:56
Mixwell has a killer LAN rating over the last two years and while he's been playing at a lower level it's against' the 'far superior' European competition. He''s going to frag from the beginning. Koosta and Tenz will likely make up their entry pack. Tenz is one of those children like Sergei, Brollan or Twistzz who's lightning quick. A big part of this depends on his development. Koosta as a utility piece isn't bad. No one watched Ghost play. With Daps we know what we are getting. Autimatic is a top 20 player. I'd prefer he goes back to the wing rather then AWP but I think he might still be AWPing.

2019-07-03 06:30
Daps is a tactical genius and is very good at turning teams into title contenders and developing young talent. Just look at Ethan and Brehze. TenZ is probably NA's most promising fpl talent other than oBo and carried his tier 3 NA teams and ATK. Koosta is questionable, but he played pretty well on ghost as a support/secondary awper. I think it will turn out fine but only time will tell

Koosta and mixwell, why?
2019-07-03 12:01
As said, Wardell is better than Mixwell. Mixwell was not really hitting it that much in Movistar. Agree on Auti, daps and TenZ, Koosta will have to convince me.
2019-07-03 12:02
Koosta is one of the most up-and-down players in CS:GO, and he's often kinda shit in the late stages of a tournament. He doesn't seem to do well in pressured situations from what I've seen of him. Also, Wardell is honestly better than Mixwell, but Mixwell could also potentially gel with this team better, 'cause he's played together with some of these guys in the past, and done it successfully.
2019-07-03 12:41
Yeah, from what I recall from Ghost, he played pretty good, but I am more baffled about the new positions. Since, if I take it theoretically, w ehave here about 3 secondary awpers in Auti, Koosta and Mixwell. Auti main awped for C9, right, but I think that is wasting the other 2 to not awp. Mixwell is not a stellar rifler, though he doesn't like to primary AWP too. Koosta is decent awper, but not the bet either. I don't like the situation at all. I would probably let AWP Koosta or Mixwell, Auti can rifle great, but it doesn't feel they have a great primary awp then. Wardell would solve that. That is the issue for me, though I generally agree with you.

Actually i had doubt with obo as well but he is doing good, maybe tenz will catch it as well. In anyway gpod lıck for both of them.

2019-07-03 12:35
I'm skeptical about koosta, because he is legitimately one of the most fundamentally flawed pro players in the scene, but I'm really excited to see Mixwell again, and I hope Tenz does well and blossoms like Stewie did when he initially broke into the pro scene, as opposed to being one of those pug gods who only do well in tier 4 NA and below. In any case, this honestly can't be worse than the line-up Cloud9 had before, and I'm just happy to see Mixwell play again, and daps to get a chance this quickly after being kicked from NRG. I hope autimatic can finally get SOME fuckin' decent support from his teammates, because he's close to being as tragic of a wasted bundle of talent as S1mple is.

Amen brother, I agree 100%! Koosta is the biggest wtf for me since you have Mixwell as main awp, and then autimatic as secondary awp. Makes no sense why he’s there unless Autimatic has completely given up on awping and Koosta is the secondary awper. I’d rather see Vice or someone that can support or rising talent from scene like Tenz. Xeppa would’ve been cool I think;very underrated

Finally they actually try to build something decent since Flusha left, I would've kept CajunB over Koosta tho. Mixwell looks good, but Wardell should've been this lineup AWP. I feel like his skill ceiling could be way higher than Mixwell's and Daps was perfect to develop a young talent him.

I think Koosta is a perfect fit, he can frag out, but won't hurt his team in trying to get kill. He is a selfless player Also I don't think Mixwell is awping
2019-07-03 15:43
CajunB is the same kind of player, experienced, smart, fits in almost every role you put him up and a lot more consistent. Mixwell should be the awper as he was on Movistar Riders for the last year. If C9 brought him to rifle when he was awping for so long, they fucked up again and there was a ton of better options for that than him.
2019-07-03 15:57
I think it's because Mixwell doesn't want to awp, he was rifle on optic back in the day and he played fine
2019-07-03 15:58
I find that hard to believe, beyond what he did on OpTic he was always an awper. He had almost full control of MR but still never brought an awper to the team. I just hope they don't go that way and C9 becomes a trial subject again (I wouldn't be surprised if management brought an awper but auti doesn't want to give up on it), Mixwell AWP-Auti rifle is a lot better combo than the other way around.
2019-07-03 16:09
I think Mix and Auti are gonna rifle, Koosta is going to be the awp
2019-07-03 16:46
Really? FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK!!!!!!!
2019-07-03 16:49
Yeah lol, I think it's just based off of how the players feel, I'm kinda hyped to see how Tenz does against t1/t2 teams
2019-07-03 16:50
good luck to the new team!

they have like 3 awpers
2019-07-03 15:27
Yeah i thought the same. Maybe they could keep rush instead of koosta. I still think that RUSH is a good player
2019-07-03 15:39
meh... shuffle inc in 2 months or so
2019-07-03 15:45
holy shit, so excited to see mixwell, tim and tenz under daps leading! but not sure about koosta, we'll see!
2019-07-03 15:48
Koosta?
2019-07-03 15:53
Adding Mixwell and Tenz is a damn nice move by c9. Daps can do what he needs to as an igl but can't say anything about Koosta though.
2019-07-03 16:21
overhype, tenz and dap only good move

Rush never was that good. I only remember the 1v4 against ORDER in australia. Thats bout it rly, He had the poorest performance in the boston major out of the 4 players (stewie,ska,tarik and auti). Not a shocker. Gl with new lineup c9

koosta is the questionmark imo, he could be great but i would have taken suNny over him easily.

Interesting... I just don't understand why fucking koosta, since mixwell (who's way better) is here. If they had suNny instead of koosta it would be perfect for them.
