Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas Colocho, Damian "daps" Steele, Kenneth "koosta" Suen, and Tyson "TenZ" Ngo joined Cloud9's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad alongside new head coach James "JamezIRL" Macaulay, the team announced Thursday.
Of the previous CS:GO roster, only Timothy "autimatic" Ta will remain active. William "Rush" Wierzba will move to the bench, Maikil "Golden" Selim Rahim will go to Ninjas in Pyjamas on loan through the Berlin Major, and both Daniel "vice" Kim and Rene "cajunb" Borg will exit the team.
Former head coach Soham "valens" Chowdhury will move to a data scientist role in support of JamezIRL.
Cloud9's announcement confirms previous reporting from both Dexerto and Rush B Media. The changes come amid a string of disappointing finishes for the organization that began 2018 with a win at the ELEAGUE Boston Major. More recently, the roster failed to qualify for the Berlin Minor.
The team will next compete at BLAST Pro Series: Los Angeles, which begins July 13.
