Cloud9 signed Özgür "woxic" Eker to its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster, and is the third acquisition by Henry "HenryG" Greer since his promotion as general manager.
This follows the signing of Alex "ALEX" McMeekin as the IGL and William "mezii" Merriman, the latter of which was signed earlier on Saturday.
HenryG had some painted words about the signing of woxic, "En route to critical acclaim, highlighted by HLTV ranking him the 12th best player in the world for 2019, woxic's talent was integral to mousesports' run in which they put five trophies into their cabinet and once more established a winning tradition."
These recent signings and decisions by the Cloud9 brand are a breath of fresh air as the C9 CS:GO team has been stagnant and stale ever since the 2018 Major victory. The team has floundered and never found proper footing, and while the signing of ATK felt like a step in the right direction, it was clear the roster was never going to compete with the best.
This could see the return of Cloud9 as a real contender in North American Counter-Strike.
