Cloud9 confirm Xeppaa signing
"My personal goal is to show that I can compete on a high level, especially against these top European teams", Xeppaa said in the announcement video. The signing will see him move to Europe on a long-term basis, following the example set by Ricky "floppy" Kemery.
Reports have linked Xeppaa to Cloud9 since the start of the year, with the successful negotiation allowing him to continue competing in Counter-Strike, unlike his former teammates Anthony "vanity" Malaspina and Nathan "leaf" Orf who made the move to VALORANT.
"We've given him an opportunity and I know he is going to rise to the occasion", the team's General Manager, Henry "HenryG" Greer added. The former commentator announced that the value of the three-year deal is $432,000, with Xeppaa set to play the entry rifle role for the team. The new Cloud9 lineup will debut at cs_summit 7 on January 25-31.
