The transfer of electroNic and Perfecto was not easy. There was a moment when we competed with another club for the guys. Luckily, we were able to get them on our roster.
The entire off-season was very difficult. All two weeks of my vacation I worked and tried to make this transfer. groove and Cloud9's management were also helping me. We did it despite the difficulties and force majeure. It's a big win because it's the biggest transfer in the esports history, without revealing any numbers.
Cloud9 announced the signing of NAVI's electroNic and Perfecto mid-July 2023. According to rumors, the transfer of esports athletes could have costed around $2 million.
