The American DPS was previously a member of Selfless Gaming, which released its roster last month. He was also chosen to compete for Team USA in this year’s Overwatch World Cup. After a dominating performance in the group stage, Team USA qualified for the playoffs alongside seven other teams.
Cloud acquired the European roster of Laser Kittenz earlier this month, which was expected to represent the organization in Overwatch Contenders. Cloud9 is separately recruiting South Korean players to comprise its Overwatch League team, for which it acquired the London franchise.
Three players recent acquired from Laser Kittenz are noticeably absent from Cloud9’s Contenders roster: Carl “crems” Aspehult, Finley “Kyb” Adisi, and Ryan “CrusaDe” van Wegen. The trio is still listed on the team’s website, and there hasn’t been any announcement regarding their status.
The rest of Cloud9’s Overwatch Contenders roster consists of Luís “Greyy” Perestrelo, Tiago “mowzassa” Rodrigues, Andreas “Nevix” Karlsson, Jay “sinatraa” Won, Mads “fischer” Jehg, Alberto “neptuNo” González Molinillo, and Indy “SPACE” Halpern.
Cloud9 lost 4-0 to Misfits in its first Overwatch Contenders match of the new season.
