Cloud9 on Twitter has announced the departure of Özgür “woxic” Eker from their CSGO roster. After spending just three months on the team, the 22yo Sniper has been allowed by the North American Organization to explore other options for his future. According to the team’s General Manager, Henry “HenryG” Greer, this decision of Woxic was forwarded on a mutual note among the rest players.
Özgür’s short run at the Colossus was explained by HenryG in a statement where the latter discussed the problems they were facing as a team due to Woxic’s high ping in-game and the location of his current residence. He also stressed upon the resolvent they tried to inculcate within the team which couldn’t mend the Turkish player’s issues stating them to be “insurmountable”.
During his stint at Cloud9, Woxic averaged a 1.00 rating from a total of 24 maps he played under the Alex “ALEX” McMeekin led squad. He now joins Aleksandar “kassad” Trifunović, the ex-Head coach of Cloud9 who earlier parted ways with the Squad within just months of assembly.
As reported earlier by TalkEsport and 1pv.fr, Cloud9 is close to bringing in Erick “Xeppaa” Bach on the team’s active roster along with Chris “Elmapuddy” Tebbit who might fill in the head coach position at the same.
With Woxic’s departure, Cloud9 are now down to four players:
- Alex “ALEX” McMeekin
- William “mezii” Merriman
- Ricky “floppy” Kemery
- Patrick “es3tag” Hansen
