According to dust2.dk Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke and Jakob “JUGi” Hansen will complete the Cloud9 roster.
In April of 2018, OpTic went for a full Danish Roster, taking in the best Danish players available at that time to form a homegrown team. However, since then, the team has failed to get any championships titles and earned second places at cs_summit 3 and DreamHack Open Summer, and currently sit on a #32 ranking according to HLTV.
According to the report by dust2.dk, two of OpTic’s players, k0nfig and JUGi, are set complete the Cloud9 roster. This report comes after the North-American Organisation ending the trial period with Jordan “Zellsis” Montemurro and with Fabien “kioShiMa” Fiey also rumored to part ways with the organisation.
If this move is successful, the two teams will look like
- Timothy “autimatic” Ta
- William “RUSH” Wierzba
- Maikil “Golden” Selim
- Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke
- Jakob “JUGi” Hansen
- Marco “Snappi” Pfeiffer
- René “cajunb” Borg
- Ismail “refrezh” Ali
