es3tag takes over AWP in Cloud9
After the failed performance Cloud9 at the current IEM Katowice 2021 the duties of the main sniper in the lineup moved Danish player Patrick "es3tag" Hansen. This was revealed to HLTV.org.
Team in-game leader Alex "ALEX" McMeekin has been playing with AWP for the past month. The Brit was forced to take on the role of sniper due to the termination of cooperation with Ozgur "woxic" Eker, whose place was taken by American rifler Eric "Xeppaa" Bach.
Notably, es3tag already has experience playing with a sniper rifle on a regular basis. While playing for Heroic, he replaced Daniel "mertz" Mertz in that position for several months.
Cloud9 roster has half a month to rearrange their game for the new sniper as the nearest of the announced tournaments with his participation is ESL Pro League Season 13 that will start on March 8.
