Cloud9 to transfer current roster and undergo complete rebuild

The organization is committed to finding Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou and company a new home as it's about to restructure the entire CS:GO division.

The South African-American composition will continue to represent Cloud9 in ESL Pro League Season 12 while the Los Angeles-based company searches for a new organization for the entire current lineup and begins the restructuring process.

The move will see C9 overhaul the CS:GO division for the fourth time in two and a half difficult years. While the ELEAGUE Major-winning lineup disintegrated one by one in 2018, the organization struggled to keep a stable five and its team became mostly European following countless changes during the rest of the year and the first half of 2019.

When that direction failed, Cloud9 placed their trust in Damian "⁠daps⁠" Steele and his brand new lineup for the latter half of 2019, but the majority of that unit ended up being acquired by Gen.G after just five months, leaving the organization without a roster.

T.c's team's time at Cloud9 is coming to an end

Cloud9 has boasted the squad around Tiaan "⁠T.c⁠" Coertzen since the start of 2020, having acquired them from ATK following their impressive campaign at ESL Pro League Season 10 Finals, where the team beat North and G2 on the way to a seventh-eighth placing while only losing to the tournament's eventual champions, mousesports.

The JT-led side have been unable to replicate that success under the new banner, however. They kicked off 2020 by qualifying for DreamHack Open Leipzig and IEM Katowice only to get eliminated in the group stage at both tournaments, before finishing fourth in the first season of Flashpoint as the scene transitioned online.

Since then, Cloud9 have enjoyed a few highlight moments such as third place at ESL One: Road to Rio, above both Evil Geniuses and Liquid, but otherwise stagnated as they struggled to take their game to the next level and begin contending for regional titles.

Cloud9 are looking to transfer the following lineup:

South Africa Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou
South Africa Aran "⁠Sonic⁠" Groesbeek
United States Ricky "⁠floppy⁠" Kemery
United States Josh "⁠oSee⁠" Ohm
United States Ian "⁠motm⁠" Hardy

South Africa Tiaan "⁠T.c⁠" Coertzen (coach)

surprising that they benched the entire roster though, they defo shouldve tried to keep floppy and osee atleast
2020-09-06 20:37
C9 knows that the rosters works really well together, so you have to compliment them for trying to keep them together at least
2020-09-06 20:43
Pretty sure the players didnt agreed to kick anyone so org decided to sale all of them. Seeing these players past drama history on envy other players didnt want the hate nifty got

funny you mention JT... i thought the same thing about him...i was saying that ''Grim'' should replace him before he went to liquid...
2020-09-06 23:36
Grim would've only worked replacing Sonic. JT is the igl.
2020-09-07 03:47
i know JT is igl but hell someone else could have done
2020-09-07 04:35
Look at FaZe when they kicked the IGL (Karrigan) and got someone else to do it. Only good individual performance for a long period of time was Niko everyone else was poor. Guardians career died, Olof soon left again and Rain hasnt been in great form either. Another example is the old Gambit squad when Zeus left. The moment Zeus left the team they crashed

+1 but to be fair Gambit they were shit before as well if being honest. They had that major as their peak and they fluked at the same time. Mou dropping a +30 bomb on everpass against astralis I think is prove enough that everything was going their way in that major
2020-09-07 10:53
Oh for sure I dont see them maintaining that but I just meant like removing an IGL and saying oh a non IGL can do it is dumb. Same thing with ence also

Tbh I think C9 wasted some opportunities not going for roster moves like that early. I think they didnt wanna do it because of the roster rules and losing RMR points but in hindsight they shouldve made the move earlier for someone like Grim

you cant build a team from these 2 teams that will be better than the current one. current one is not even that bad, they are praccing well, playing okay but as you said, its their max. But C9 obv want to compete at highest level, but they cant create a team for it with the current NA players that are not in Liquid or EG
2020-09-06 23:02
but what can they do that isn't garbage? sign swole patrol? oh wait

+1 the reason why alot of na pros moved to valorant is just simply because there's not enough orgs that want to develop them, and now because everyone from NA is moving to valorant, orgs only have a limited amount of players they can recruit
2020-09-07 06:50
moved to valorant doesn't mean they actually got a team with a salary that they can play for, a lot of them are still free agents and would shamelessly come back to CS if they'd get any offers or a lack thereof, just like Zellsis or Cooper did after being 'done with CS for good'. Riot hosts their own tournaments, CS has plenty for every tier.

they weren't playing well. they weren't playing very bad either... just your average NA team
2020-09-06 20:17
Yea i mean what kind of roster are they expecting to get to play better than this. They wont beat liquid, eg, furia etc anyway. At least they were competing with gen g and had upsets at times.
2020-09-07 01:27
who are they going to pick up? swole patrol is worse than this c9 roster maybe international like coL ?
2020-09-06 20:17
that would be great
2020-09-06 20:18
but even then, i cant think of many free players atm
2020-09-06 20:18
europe has enough small FPL players like bymas and ropz back in the day that would pair perfectly with an experienced IGL.
2020-09-06 20:20
ye i guess flamez and spinx? but afaik both got signed in last 2 weeks
2020-09-06 20:21
yeah something like that. Mix those with an good IGL and a awper like natosaphix and you already have an okay team.

You can see how young players perform in Olof's roles which he had in FaZe. Change his position to a star rifler and you'll get much better results from him. GuardiaN is looking crisp in FPL but I have to agree with oskar, he looked mediocre in Sprout. Also they bring a lot of experience and the duo Olof and Guardian played together before so they would be more familiar with each other's play styles.

the roster showed so much potential during ESL S10 and then they did virtually nothing after that :(
2020-09-06 20:18
bro in the road to rio they played 3rd and beat tl they were good in the rmr ranking games
2020-09-06 21:12
Overall I think the core of motm, floppy and oSee has potential, but the current Cloud9 lineup is totally dead, and I understand their decision. Finding a new org. for them will be really hard to.
2020-09-06 20:18
only floppy and osee
2020-09-06 20:20
Honestly motm is weak, I agree. But a roster around floppy and oSee could have future still.

Floppy was good, I feel like they should keep him tbh. Too bad that Nitr0 switched to valorant, they could really use him too. I hope some players from Swole Patrol will get a chance but I don't think they are good enough on their own to become one of the top teams in NA either.

2020-09-06 21:18
i heard that dazzle was being igl with Cooper 2nd calls Zellsis is good support but was really good as lurker if zell is the igl than theres way better players than dazzLe
2020-09-06 21:19
yes, they are better players, none of them are orgless, dazzle was playing good recently tho
2020-09-06 21:23
robby was a great player from AA, playing all shitty positions and having 1.11 rating, than floppy and infinite would have more space to play wippie is actually a good player with riffles and awp, play tuff positions too crashies is out from T1, he was a beast at csgo and he could've be back with c9
2020-09-06 21:26
i have heard wippie cant play cuz he has a student visa, if he can play for an org would be good ngl

Hard not to wonder how well these guys could do with a stricter IGL and coach. Guys who will drill some discipline into them and get them over that hump of playing every match like it's FFA. There's still plenty of potential in there. Gen.G is a South Korean org with a team playing NA that is comprised of daps plus four Asians. They aren't dropping someone for floppy. oSee might be Asian enough to replace daps though. BnTeT can IGL again and Auti can go back to rifling. Meanwhile in whatever new org Sonic can go back to AWPing where he belongs, they can bring in a promising FPL/MDL rifler and the sign daps to IGL (for that discipline) and tryout JT as coach. Everyone's a winner.

What this means is that a) They are not satisfied at the results but they cannot fire them because of contract, which we do not know details of. There could be a clause that prevents them from doing this. Players are definitely under NDA, meaning they cannot discuss about the details of the matter. b) They want to milk the last pennies out of this lineup, meaning that they want to sell them off before their contracts expire.

2020-09-07 00:19
Hell fucking no. And with what we are seeing MiBR doing, I question if outside EG, Liquid and Furia NA hast top 30 teams... Maybe 100T in form, but the rest of the region looks like absolute trash.
2020-09-07 00:22
0/8
2020-09-07 00:43
Looking at the actual hltv top 30, the only team behind cloud9 that's not better is Team One (And yet they lost 3 times in a row last month). Even K23 would be pretty equal. Teams better than Cloud 9 outside top 30? x6tence Nemiga Havu Ago Avez Espada I'll even put teams like Heretics, Dignitas or sAw that aren't in the best shape right now. If HLTV were fair with the weight given to current NA tournaments, most of the region would be under Renegades in #45 (Who actually deserves to be top 30). Even Boom is likely better than Cloud9...
2020-09-07 01:13
you wrote that for nothing because im not reading it. 0/8
2020-09-07 01:14
Not reading won't change the fact that Cloud9 is not a top 30 team and that's why they're getting kicked (And no serious org will pick them).

I think c9 is trying to set the brand as a big international powerhouse. Untill now they've had clowny NA rosters in different esports (dota, csgo etc...) but they slowly started kicking everyone. I asume they'll try to sign international rosters with tier 1 potential.
