Henry "HenryG" Greer announced Saturday Cloud9 had signed William "mezii" Merriman to its new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster. He is the second player to join the developing roster following the signing of Alex "ALEX" McMeekin on Sept. 10.
"With the beefy acquisition of Mezii, prodigal son of the UK, I can emphatically state that British Counter-Strike is back on the menu," HenryG said in a statement, "and what might at first sound like an exotic name to many of you will soon be as familiar and beloved as mum's Sunday roast beef with all the trimmings."
Mezii will play the role of rifler and support, joining on a three-year contract worth $426,000 in salary over the course of his tenure. His transfer fee is set at $83,000.
HenryG went on to say that despite his commitment to British Counter-Strike, Mezii and ALEX would be the only UK players on the line-up. He did not indicate when further acquisitions in the rebuilding process would be announced.
