Mixwell, Daps, Koosta and TenZ Reportedly to Join Cloud9
Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas, Damian "daps" Steele, Kenneth "koosta" Suen, and Tyson "TenZ" Ngo will join Cloud9's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster, according to a report published Tuesday by Jarek "DeKay" Lewis.
According to the report, the new players would replace Maikil "Golden" Kunda Selim, Daniel "vice" Kim, Will "RUSH" Wierzba and René "cajunb" Borg on the CS:GO squad.
Rush B Media previously reported daps and TenZ were likely to join Cloud9 and replace Golden and vice.
The report comes after Cloud9's disappointing performance at the Berlin Minor Americas Qualifier, which solidifies Cloud9 will not take part in the upcoming Starladder Major.
Mixwell left the Movistar Riders roster Tuesday, announcing "I'm starting a new journey, which will give me the opportunity to play against the best teams in the world again."
Daps, meanwhile, is an inactive member of the NRG Esports lineup, having been replaced by Peter "stanislaw" Jarguz in June. Koosta left Ghost Gaming in June and is now a free agent. TenZ currently plays as a stand-in for ATK.
Mixwell and daps are the only two members of the proposed lineup that will have played together, having shared time with OpTic Gaming in 2016.
Prior to the publishing of Dexerto's report, Cloud9 announced an episode of its talk show The 9s on Monday featuring founder and CEO Jack Etienne and Cloud9 CS:GO coach Soham "valens" Chowdhury, promising a special announcement. That show is scheduled to take place Tuesday at 6 p.m. ET.
