The European line-up, through it’s Twitter handle, has revealed that Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert would stand-in for Tomáš “oskar” Šťastný at ESL One Belo Horizonte. Jordan has been a crucial segment of Cloud 9’s venture into CS:GO while being a part of Cloud 9’s active roster since it’s inception. Mousesports didn’t disclose any specific reason for oskar’s absence at the first premier event in Brazil stating it ‘personal reasons’. Tomáš received death threats at StarSeries i-League Season 5 which could possibly be a reason behind the unexpected move.
We are happy to announce that @n0thing will be joining the mouz-forces but for ESL One Belo Horizonte only, as @csgooskar is out due to personal reasons! Oskar will be back for ESL One Cologne, but in the meantime we are happy to have n0thing representing us in Brazil! #vamouz pic.twitter.com/dXIH4dtezH

Since Jordan’s contract with Cloud 9 ended this May, he is a part of Team Old Guys Club alongside Mike “shroud” Grzesiek, Tomi “lurppis” Kovanen, Sean “seangares” Gares and Robin “Fifflaren” Johansson while being a full-time streamer. He was also seen at analyst desk on multiple events. Jordan has played for Cloud 9 from 2014-2017 and the squad has achieved commendable achievements including first place at iBUYPOWER Cup 2015, ESL Pro League Season 4 Finals and Subaru Invitational 2017. Tomáš “oskar” Šťastný had joined mousesports in August 2016. Oskar has displayed his astonishing skills and he has shown up at each event under the mouz banner. The star player is a potential cause behind the squad’s success during late 2017 and early 2018.
