A familiar face but on a different game, Floppy sticks to Cloud9. Cloud9 on Twitter have confirmed the addition of Ricky “floppy” Kemery to their Blue Valorant Division.
The 21-year-old North American was initially a part of the Colossus, a CSGO project which was initially handled and run by Henry “HenryG” Greer before the initiative was stalled as Cloud9 decided to put their Counter Strike plans on hold.
Kemery was brought aboard by Cloud9 as a part of the ATK’s CSGO squad whom the organization had acquired at the start of January 2020. Since then, he played under the banner of C9 until he decided to stay with the team for their European re-build later in September. In April 2021, Cloud9 decided to put their CSGO division on hold, citing financial issues and the inability to locate the team to the United States Of America due to the ongoing Coronavirus Pandemic.
Earlier before this weekend, Cloud9’s Blue Valorant team mutually parted ways with Relyks as the latter reported performance burnouts while competing and decided to take up streaming as his next step. Down to four players, Floppy has now been announced as the final piece to their puzzle, who has decided to pursue his career at Valorant thus hanging up his mouse on Counter Strike.
Floppy will make his debut with the Blue Valorant roster at the upcoming VCT Challengers 2 event in a bid to qualify for the Finals iteration of the same. His first match-up will be against T1 on April 23 at 00:30 IST.
Cloud9’s Blue Valorant now looks like:
- Nathan “leaf” Orf
- Mitch “mitch” Semago
- Michael “poiz” Possis
- Son “xeta” Seon-ho
- Ricky “floppy” Kemery
- Yoon “Autumn” Eu-teum (Head Coach)
- James “JamezIRL” Macaulay (Assistant Coach)
