Cloud9 close in on Xeppaa

The North American youngster could soon join the 'Colossus' after shining during his time with Chaos.

Cloud9 are close to signing former Chaos player Erick "⁠Xeppaa⁠" Bach, HLTV.org and 1pv.fr have learned. The 20-year-old is currently out of contract after Chaos released their Counter-Strike lineup at the end of December, citing the "ongoing impacts" of the coronavirus pandemic.

It remains unclear whose spot Xeppaa will take in case he signs with the North American organisation. Cloud9 General Manager Henry "⁠HenryG⁠" Greer has made no secret that the team will have an expanded roster, but he has described the sixth player as a backup plan in case "anything goes wrong" and not as someone who will be used as part of squad rotation on certain maps.

Xeppaa could soon link up with Cloud9

Xeppaa is regarded as one of the best young prospects in his region. He joined Chaos in May 2020 alongside Nathan "⁠leaf⁠" Orf and has excelled for the team, who ended the year on a high note by winning IEM Beijing North America — beating Evil Geniuses in the semi-finals and then Triumph in the grand final — and DreamHack Masters Winter North America.

ex-Chaos are qualified for FunSpark ULTI 2020, which will take place in China sometime this year, and the IEM Katowice Play-In stage, but their future has been cast into further doubt after Anthony "⁠vanity⁠" Malaspina confirmed that he was moving to VALORANT. The remaining players and team coach Matthew "⁠mCe⁠" Elmore are yet to announce their future plans.

Cloud9 are also slated to attend IEM Katowice's Play-In stage, scheduled for February 16-17. The European team, who moved up to 22nd in the world rankings on Monday, are currently without a coach after Aleksandar "⁠kassad⁠" Trifunović was relieved of his duties last month following a "stylistic clash" with in-game leader Alex "⁠ALEX⁠" McMeekin, according to HenryG.

Astralis can afford to do that, they have a team of players who have proven they are the best. C9 have done nothing of note with this roster. Xeppa over mezii is an absolute no brainier though.

Dude, bubzkji was sitting on the MAD Lions bench for months before he went to Astralis. And then got subbed in Astralis because he wasn't much of a team player and kept pulling agressive plays out of his ass instead of following the IGL.

2021-01-05 15:04
Think Mezii is most likely to be cut. His performances haven't been that great. Saying that though, the team has barely been together for half a year yet and havent played many matches. Floppy has been crazy good in their recent matches, no way they'd get rid of him (unless there are internal issues which we don't know)
2021-01-05 15:16

i mean no one should be cut YET, Mezii is playing a support role so he can't really shine, i think they might just be trying to get Xeppaa as a Temp 6th so no other team can get him and use him yet

roster changes in 2020 and later. add a 6th player and tell people that you are expanding your roster just to have someone in case that something happens. slowly bench one of the starting 5. it's just obvious that c9 isn't happy with its current state and looks forward to make roster changes, but covering it as "expansion" , 'risk management".

"Definition of contender : one that contends especially : a competitor for a championship or high honor" Merriam-Webster Lost to #1 and #2 in Flashpoint, Lost to #1 in Blast Showdown, lost to #2 in DreamHack Masters Winter, Lost to #2 in NineToFive 7 If you beat Cloud9 you are a top 2 team in the event (Gambit exception that makes the rule) which means that Cloud9 is the very definition of a CONTENDER!

Stop being rational and logical. Just read the comments, feel the vibe Clown9 dead team and they will never be top 4 in any event (except for the ones they've been it in) and they will never be top 30 (except that they are), and they will never be good (except they are) and they will always lose to horrible teams that are barely top 40....

Yeah I saw the comments... it's a shame the difference of opinions remains illusory and indecisive, as there is no reason why we cannot express them in a rational, logical, constructive or even a reasonable way. Instead of actually reading the article, assumptions are made and when corrected, of course we're the bad guys, aren't we? ;)

They're 22nd right now, and with this move, it means ex-chaos will drop below them, which put them on 21st place. Depending on point decay they might make top 20 before next event start

I couldn’t care less about the old MIBR core lol Everyone who has more than 2 brains knows that he and leaf put it up more suspicious clips on a bo3 than most pro players do on their life At that time they were unknown players against big teams playing ONLINE If you don’t believe there’s a lot of cheaters and matchfixers in the pro scene you’re naive as hell Bye

"If you don’t believe there’s a lot of cheaters and matchfixers in the pro scene you’re naive as hell" When or where did i say "No pro cheats" or "No pro matchfixes"? lol. Pros have been caught cheating and matchfixing. But, Xeppaa is not cheating. I guess you dont remember when Stewie2k was a "unknown player" and he smashed Tier 1 pros and was also called a cheater by X amount of people, lol, and look at him now.

Stewie also smashed T1 players on LAN Something he and leaf never did. So many suspicious clips on one bo3 and people still excuse them just because was against MIBR lol If he does play that well on LAN against quality players, maybe I’ll rethink my opinion against him. But at the moment he got a lot to prove.
