BLEED Esports has announced the signing of Cai “CYPHER” Watson on Wednesday, January 3, 2024.

Led by coach Aleksandar “kassad” Trifunović, the new international Counter-Strike 2 line-up is now finalised and ready for the 2024 season.

BLEED Esports announced its first foray in Counter-Strike in late November 2023 with the addition of Serbian coach kassad, and has, over the next month, slowly started assembling the new roster.

First came the signing of ex-BIG rifler Josef “faveN” Baumann, preceding the addition of Hampus “hampus” Poser, Tsvetelin “CeRq” Dimitrov, and Laurențiu “lauNX” Țârlea.

With time running out for BLEED Esports to find the fifth member ahead of the PGL Major Copenhagen 2024 Major qualifiers, the Singaporean team didn’t need long to round up the five-man line-up.

CYPHER arrives at BLEED from TSM, whom he joined at the end of August but hasn’t accomplished much outside of winning ESEA Cash Cup: Europe – Autumn 2023 #3 and finishing ESEA Season 47: Advanced Division – Europe in third place.

Before signing for TSM, CYPHER played for Into the Breach, which he helped reach the quarterfinals of Paris Major 2023.

He has not found much success in bigger events, despite being one of the most consistent performers on the team.

As confirmed by kassad, BLEED initially intended to acquire Ninjas in Pyjamas’ Max “maxster” Jansson.

Unfortunately, the deal fell apart after PGL failed to confirm whether maxster, who is registered as NiP’s substitute, would be able to participate in the European open qualifiers for PGL Major Copenhagen.

BLEED’s approach for Justin “jks” Savage was also unsuccessful.

But despite all the hoops kassad had to jump through to assemble the new Counter-Strike roster, BLEED Esports now fields a promising lineup, which will debut in the upcoming European open qualifiers for PGL Major Copenhagen, set to kick off on January 8, 2024.
