HenryG: "I'm going to have an active sixth player"

Cloud9's general manager revealed more details about the project that he is putting together on the latest episode of the 'HLTV Confirmed' show.

Cloud9 are looking to build a squad with six active players, Henry "⁠HenryG⁠" Greer announced on Monday. According to the North American organisation's general manager for CS:GO, the sixth player will be signed in the near future and will be working with the team on a regular basis.

HenryG, who appeared on the latest 'HLTV confirmed' episode, stressed that his plan is not to keep the players on their toes but to have a backup plan in case "anything goes wrong."

HenryG will be targeting an experienced player to fill the backup role

"It's a bit of a trend at this point, adding a sixth player when you need to, when everything starts to fall apart," HenryG said. "I plan to announce a sixth player as we open up shop. When we have things going, I'm going to have an active sixth player, who is not going to be on the bench. He's going to be actively playing, he'll be more of a brand ambassador while we're setting the operation up and getting the team stabilised.

"He'll be actively ready and working with us in practice. It's not to keep the players on their toes. The world has proven to be very unpredictable, so if we have travel issues, if we have someone who falls ill, I want to have a very competent player who knows the role and everything we're doing and is a very versatile player. That's my plan. I haven't signed that player but I have a shortlist of players."

HenryG went on to give more information about the profile of player that he will be pursuing. The retired commentator will be looking to bring in an experienced player who has competed at a high level but is not at the top of the pile.

"[It will be] someone who hasn't quite made it yet but has explosive talent and good experience as well," he said. "With a career that has potentially not gone the way they wanted to. But they've been to LANs, they've been to big tournaments, they've seen it but not quite made it."

HenryG's decision to build an expanded roster was applauded by Astralis' director of communications. In a Twitter post, Steen Laursen reaffirmed that this is a move "in the right direction", and drew parallels between Cloud9's vision and his organisation's strategy. Astralis currently field a six-man roster, with Andreas "⁠Xyp9x⁠" Højsleth expected to return to activity in the near future after taking a medical leave due to stress and burnout.

Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin was last week announced as the first player of Cloud9's new team, who will be coached by Aleksandar "⁠kassad⁠" Trifunović. The former Vitality in-game leader has signed a three-year contract with the North American organisation in a deal worth worth $1.65 million, according to HenryG.

said 'bot' has been on an international team and been to multiple grand finals there aren't many great support players out there either i don't personally like taco but he meets the criteria put in place by henry: - worked in an international setting - not a rookie who needs to be taught - seasoned veteran

I don't know lol but If I'd get paid 30k a month I would find someone proper. Why should I care about that? I only care about T1 CS and big tournaments. But I'm sure there are players like Shiro from Gambit Youngsters, who are very good, young but playing in t2/t3 teams

shiro lol the migration isn't possible nowadays alex can fly to the US because he's from the UK going by that logic, it's probably going to be players who hold the P1 visa to work in the US and taco is one of them i could hardly care if it's him, because im not a fan but he fits the criteria lets see regardless

Henry said that players coach and him decide what to sign not only him so I don't think that Alex wants washed up players.
2020-09-14 17:49
I really doubt they signed him, because based on what Henry said, that he has been in talks with the players he has in mind to be added to the teams for awhile now, and this whole MiBR situation dropped out of blue air just now
2020-09-14 17:49

Who would want the next MIBR to happen with Brazilians again? I believe the line-up is going to be international for C9. Woxic won't happen due to poor attitude. C9: ALEX smooya Edward (Might come back?) ScreaM (?) (Didn't he come back?) TACO (To fit FalleN?) FalleN (Second AWPer, or 6th player) GuardiaN is also inactive. Actually so many good AWPers out there are inactive to select from.

I was trying to find some decent support :P He is apparently playing for his own team he created Team Selectah. Also he did manage to do well in Na'Vi back in golden days, so why not to try again. That line-up needs some kind of lurker though. Alex and smooya will be there for sure.

Fallen and woxic on the same team? For what? Woxic is a great awper, so using him as a riffler/2nd sniper would be stupid. And if fallen doesn't play the awp - he's garbage
2020-09-14 19:26
and why?????????? if Cloud9 wants to end like shitty Mibr that's a good decision, but if they want a good team they need to find someone else. having those 3 together is the stupidest shit to do, if Taco, or any of those 3, starts under performing, like they always do, the other 2 players (Alex and the other one) and the organization would want to bench Taco, but because fallen and fer are like little kids they won't let Taco be benched, so there would be only one option that would be get rid of Fallen, Taco and fer. And with that we would come back to square one again. So no, having those 3 bots in Cloud 9 or any other team is the stupidest shit to be done. Even tho they will have a six man roaster I'm pretty sure that if they had Fallen and fer in the starting roaster and TACO as the sixth player, Fallen and fer would not play because their friend Taco would be playing with them. And since some of the Mibr players own YEAH, they probably will get rid of 3 players from YEAH and just add themselves to the roaster, and eventually get rid of the other 2 players and bring some friends of them and then bench them, bringing all the mibr shit back.

very cool, 6th players should always get as much action as other players, maybe AdreN could work, he can play a lot of roles, still many players that could do so but it was the first to come to mind

2020-09-14 17:33
i understand since adren can play multiple rolls but his individual performance is too low goes like 0.8 every official
2020-09-14 17:46
yeah that is the only problem, maybe him signing to a big org could give him some personal drive to try and improve again, they’ll probably won’t sign him but it would work decently

"[It will be] someone who hasn't quite made it yet but has explosive talent and good experience as well," he said. "With a career that has potentially not gone the way they wanted to. But they've been to LANs, they've been to big tournaments, they've seen it but not quite made it." this description has smooya all over it

Smooya is so talented you wouldn't want him as your 6th choice, rather 2nd or 3rd at most. I know "active 6th player" means that everybody gets to practice etc and they are actively in the lineup, but still, I think it's about someone else while smooya is confirmed from the start, especially now that Alex said there will be one more brit in there and Thomas joined Envy.
2020-09-14 17:29
+1 i agree, and i kinda thought HenryG was speaking of his next pickup there. i misread that a little, thanks for the heads up.

 | 
Poland Astoner55
Oh yeah, if You were talking about the next pickup it must be Smooya. Like, it's just close to impossible that they miss on a chance to sign a world-class awper for free. He has already proven he has it when it comes to teamplay and skill, now he just needs a right team, and if everything goes as planned, he might just find one in C9.

I wouldn't actually count out the possibility of Smooya and Mezii being picked up, with Mezii as a rifler and smooya as 2nd awp/rifler. Then they only need 1 awper (Woxic? Guardian? Maybe someone completely different?) and 1 more hot fresh talent, as HenryG said there will be two of them and Mezii could be counted as one.
2020-09-14 19:15
smooya most overrated player ever

2020-09-14 17:59
After trials ended in September 2019 they made 6 man roster: mhL, leman, Sydney, Gruby, Furlan and F1KU as 6th. In march they signed oskarish and moved Sydney and leman to second team.

Well NaVi is literally the only big org in CIS. I am just claiming it based on the fact on how as of lately players been complaining about work load and shit and quite a few of them taking time off as well. Might just cause other players to speak about it as well.
2020-09-14 18:08
It is also a thing of mentality. Sure the people in Mid EU love to take a time out etc but the Russians are very different in that way. Some of them would die before they take a pause. And is understandable when you are a Major contender for the win and play every 2 months in a grand final that you need a break. But when you top 15 and cry about too many tournaments, then don't become a pro player. Really do another job.

Edward, Flarich? Might as well buy the whole Mibr roster for easy losses
2020-09-14 17:37
Nukkye nice guess, i really think he might be that 6th or even in starting five.

I am a Fan of nukkye, but He is Not t1 Player. Just not enough firepower.
2020-09-14 18:16
How about Sunny then?
2020-09-14 20:40
So everything started to fall apart already, nice
2020-09-14 17:35
For some reason I think this c9 experiment is going to fail
2020-09-14 17:40
Yes because there is not enough good players they could get.

Unless they buyout like 2 other players for their remaining four, I agree with you. Not good enough free agents avaibale at the moment.
2020-09-14 17:51
Smooya, Snappi and for gods sake Happy.

I hope they get Smooya, he is still a free agent. Snappi? Nah he bad, and they already got Alex for IGL. Happy? What year is this?
2020-09-14 18:12
I mean we talk about players with no buyouts and before you get some really shit players take what you got and for that, you need players that can deal with the fact that they have one chance and who knows how to play on tier 1 events. The list of free agents for that is nearly 0 atm. And the not free don't wanna leave cuz of RMR.
2020-09-14 18:15
No man Snappi is 2 old and bad and has been outta big competition for too long. Source: trust me bro :()

I see the point that you are trying to make but there comes a point where no matter how good you were or the opportunity you are gonna get, you just don't have it in you to perform like before, you are just a shadow of your former self who recalls his former glory days when he was good but is now rusted which is beyond saving. This all goes even more down the drain when you realize the organization making the moves is one of the richest ones who can afford to buy out top players from their teams. I personally believe that with the major being delayed and more RMR events to be confirmed with each increasing in points, it won't pose that big of a problem. Orgs were removing players in and between first 2 rmr events as well when only 3 were confirmed.
2020-09-14 18:27
But no team that has to lose sth changed a player. Astralis skipped one event. HenryG said itself that it is very hard to get player cuz of the RMR points and the 20% lose teams would make. So he can't get players that even want to join C9 Smooya and Snappi are still on a trial at another team so they are possible transfers. No top1 material but he need a team at the end of the month.

i was mainly referencing Happy there with that long ass para. I am pretty sure its only Smooya on trial there, Snappi has a contract.
2020-09-15 09:05
congrats u just made a tier 3 team for 9 to 5 tournament
2020-09-14 22:16
still better than MIBR
2020-09-14 22:17
true
2020-09-14 22:17
I think this team will fall flat on its face

2020-09-14 18:23
C9 oh why have they done that! What a blundah! :()
2020-09-14 18:25
Cloud9 will not pick up TACO, fer, and FalleN. Jack (the owner) is too cheap to spend that much for their buy outs. I forgot who it was last year or in 2018, but Jack didn't want to buy them out of their contracts even though it would've been arguably one of their best pickups.
2020-09-14 18:29
Haven't taco and fer been released by mibr?
2020-09-14 18:38
taco and fer are free agents

2020-09-14 18:40
Guardian as 6th player is possible yeah. Smooya and Woxic in the starting 5? Doubt it. One of them yeah sure, but both? Idk. JKS needs to be rescued from 100T though.

France MarioReL
yes. and I do think smooya AND w0xic will be a part of this team. Why dont u see them together ?
2020-09-14 19:25
Well...I believe both is better off playing the main AWP role in a team. Something Smooya probably wouldnt do in Cloud9 if Woxic and him signs. If Woxic gets signed by C9 then Smooya should sign permanently with c0ntact instead. Sure, they basically have the same problem with two main AWPers, but, Smooya accepted a rifler and 2nd AWP role. Now they also had like a 2 week break from matches so they can practice their roles even more. HenryG basically said that it would be one more UK player. I think it will be GamerLegions Mezii, if you heard of him. It could ofc be Smooya, but yeah, i think its gonna be Mezii. Lets wait and see i suppose :) He said that next player will be announced in about 2 weeks.

I see. I heard about mezii but didnt saw him play. Since this annoncement is gonna be "big" i can see woxic / guardian / olof / smooya get signed this week, we will see. Cant wait to support C9 again after the european roster.
2020-09-14 19:35
Yeah, of those 4 AWP options i think Woxic is the one C9 really want, then Smooya is the second pick and probably GuardiaN or Olof as a 6th player, but we will see what HenryG and Kassad announce at a later date. Yeah, its gonna be amazing to see ALEX lead a international team :D Cant wait until the whole lineup is announced.
2020-09-14 19:37

Olof is experienced player so maybe
2020-09-14 19:07
olof's contract with FaZe isn't finished, i don't see why he'd drop such a well paying contract, mens set 4 life

- Cloud9.ALEX - Cloud9.w0xic - Cloud9.TACO (this team will need a player to do their dirty work) - Cloud9.Nivera - Cloud9.flameZ (for the 6-player model, an Israeli would be ideal. in which case - replace him with a more experienced player) -Cloud9.fer / Cloud9.SHiPZ

2020-09-15 09:08
6 players roster concept is dogshit, gl with this.
2020-09-15 09:09
i think the idea could be good as you can switch out someone under performing or getting fatigued and they know if they become complacent paycheck stealers their position will go to the 6th, although realistically training with 6 people could be pretty confusing and hard to do in reality, i still think it might become the meta and teams follow astralis's lead
