ALEX will attend VALORANT event

Former Cloud9 captain Alex "ALEX" McMeekin has teamed up with Valentin "mistou" Balbastro to play in European qualifiers for the VALORANT Champions Tour 2021. The mix will attend the event by the name of BREF, and ALEX is listed as the captain. The other three members of the lineup are barely known in the CS:GO community.

Cloud9 have announced they are pausing their activities and benching their whole European roster on March 26. The core lineup was originally assembled in October 2020. During that time, the team earned $39,500 in the various online events. At the same time, the salary of each player per month exceeded the amount of $10,000.

ALEX himself has repeatedly streamed Valorant on his personal Twitch channel. On the day of Cloud9's dissolution, the British captain posted a link on his Twitter feed to a ten-month-old video of the best moments of his Valorant streams.

mistou's last CS:GO team was LDLC, which he left in August 2017. Since then, the eSports athlete has not performed on the professional stage.
