CS:GO: Cloud9 Confirm Xeppa Acquisition

Having released woxic earlier this week, Cloud9 has made official the addition of former Chaos player Erick ‘Xeppa’ Bach to complete their roster.

The North-American organisation announced this Friday the 20-year-old player that will complete their starting-five. Erick ‘Xeppa’ Bach has been signed under a three-year contract worth $432,000 which can be elevated to $540,000 if certain bonus conditions are met.

Even though an early HLTV report pointed towards his acquisition as a sixth player, Cloud9 would officially announce this Monday the removal of Ösgür ‘woxic’ Eker from their CS:GO squad, leaving many in shock, after his pompous transfer on a sum surrounding the $296,000.

With woxic’s contract terminated, Xeppa will be effectively replacing him in the roster, after conquering back-to-back IEM Beijing-Haidian North America and DreamHack Masters Winter North America towards the end of 2020 under the Chaos organisation.

With Chaos dropping the roster in December of 2020, the squad disbanded, with Anthony ‘vanity’ Malaspina and Nathan ‘leaf’ Orf soon announcing their transition over to VALORANT, following the trend of many North-American players.

While most of the former members of Chaos have remained in free-agency, Nathan ‘leaf’ Orf was signed just this week to Cloud9’s VALORANT division, with Xeppa now following his steps under the same banner, albeit under a different game.

Xeppa will also be the second North-American to join the “Colossus”, finding company in Ricky ‘floppy’ Kemery, in what will be a major challenge for the roster lead by Alex ‘ALEX’ McMeekin with aspirations to beat the very best in Europe.

Even though Cloud9 has yet to announce a coach, a Rush B Media report, as well as HenryG himself, has confirmed that Chris ‘Elmapuddy’ Tebbit could be the one to take the reigns of the ‘Colossus’, after Gen.G announced its intentions to leave CS:GO and placed him in free agency.
