Cloud9 recently announced that they have signed Ricky ‘Floppy’ Kemery as their fourth member of the official roster. The organization adds the professional to its “Colossal rebuild”, as Floppy joins the squad. Floppy was the former member of the organization led by Johnny ‘JT’ Theodosiou. As Cloud9 decides to restructure its whole CS: GO squad, the organization enters Floppy as the fourth member of the official squad.
Floppy at Cloud9
At Cloud9, Floppy averages with a rating of 1.13 across his showings, while competing with the squad. His exhibiting plays have helped the team during crucial times. The team finished fourth in the first season of the Flashpoint. With some time, the team improved even more. At the ESL: Road to Rio North America Division, the team finished third. Due to these rankings and top five finishings, Cloud9 took 1400 RMR points in the bag to book a spot into the Major.
Confirmation by Dekay
Jarek ‘Dekay’ Lewis from DBLTAP.com reports this move by Cloud9 earlier, as the organization confirms it later. The team revealed the transfer of Floppy through Twitter. The General Manager of the organization Henry ‘HenryG’ Greer tweets about the arrival of the new star into the team. The tweet also contains the contract of Floppy with Cloud9. During his three year period with Cloud9, the star will receive 432,000 USD.
In addition, Cloud9 now comprises four professional players, instead of the complete six-player squad. The organization says that it is still to decide the remaining two players for the official roster.
Cloud9’s Current Roster
The official roster of the only North American Major winner team, Cloud9, is currently lacking two professionals. The team recently adds a fourth player to its roster. However, the remaining two are yet to be decided. The current official roster of the team consists of William ‘mezii’ Merriman, Alex ‘ALEX’ McMeekin, Ozgur ‘woxic’ Eker, and Ricky ‘floppy’ Kemery.
Similarly, Cloud9 currently holds one head coach and an assistant coach. According to the official roster, Aleksandar ‘kassad’ Trifunovic is currently handling the team as the head coach. However, Joshua Micks is currently placed as the assistant coach for the team.
Future of the Team
Cloud9 is considered one of the strongest teams in the North American region. The team is the only Major winner in its whole region. As the organization decided to revamp its whole CS: GO squad, the team only managed to gather four professionals at the moment. Similarly, the organization posts positive comments about hiring the remaining two stars very soon. The lack of professionals is definitely making things difficult for the current roster. However, the team is getting more time to understand each other and play a better game. The future for the team looks very brightening as the organization is hiring the star performers to complete the whole squad. As the team has already won a Major title before, with its completion of the official roster, the team is definitely going to come back very strong.
