Cloud9 has announced their second signing to the CSGO roster, and it’s none other than British Counter-Strike pro William “Mezii” Merriman.

The 21-year-old will join the North American organisation as a rifler, support and closer, as revealed by Henry “HenryG” Greer – the general manager of Cloud9 – through a tweet describing the details of the signing. The newest addition to the C9 roster was signed under a 3 year deal starting on September 19th with a transfer fee of $83,000 and a total salary of $426,000.

The former GamerLegion player seemed to be equally as excited to join his new team. “Today is a dream come true,” Mezii said. “I’m up on cloud nine but this is only the beginning of my journey.”

Mezii will play alongside IGL Alex “⁠ALEX⁠” McMeekin and coach Aleksandar “⁠kassad⁠” Trifunović in the revamped Cloud9 roster. 

HenryG seems to be confident in this new signing, as he has showered the player with compliments through a statement. “If you look at this as a gamble then understand I’m playing for all the marbles and this decision was not undertaken lightly,” the former caster said. “Mezii is a player of great dedication and possesses an encyclopedic knowledge on utility usage that makes the old colour commentator’s heart swell with patriotic pride.”
