At the moment, there are three players and a coach in the Cloud9 clip:
- Alex "ALEX" McMeekin;
- William "mezii" Merriman;
- Ozgur "woxic" Ecker;
- Alexander "kassad" Trifunovich (coach).
The seventeen-year-old rising star of the American pro scene Owen "oBo" Schlatter has announced his departure from Complexity Gaming. This was announced at an emergency press conference by the CEO of the club Jason Lake.
The young player prefers to play in the American region, so he decided to return home from the European region, where Complexity is currently placed. Lake has confirmed that he will help oBo to find a new home.
This summer, oBo was part of the team's big success - Complexity Gaming became the triumph of BLAST Premier: Spring 2020 European Finals. Team coach Jamie "keita" Hall became oBo's stand in the closed qualifier for DreamHack Open Fall.
Interview with Jason Lake: "For me, esports will never be an ordinary, everyday thing - this is the passion of my life."
Just Ninja stuff
Ninjas in Pyjamas' Tim "nawwk" Jonasson took a break due to his health condition. The organization said that lately, he had noticeable fatigue and overwork. Therefore, in order to avoid burnout, he was given a rest until the next official RMR event - DreamHack Open Fall, which starts on October 15th.
The past week turned out to be rich in surprising and sudden reshuffles on the CIS pro-scene.
