Floppy Set to Stay at Cloud9
We finally have confirmation that Ricky “floppy” Kemery will remain with Cloud9 in the new Counter-Strike: Global Offensive rebuild. He’s the fourth member to be signed in this period. We’re still awaiting the final two signings as GM Henry “HenryG” Greer has confirmed he’s building a six-man squad.
The decision to keep floppy on the team should prove beneficial as he’s on his way to becoming one of the best players in the US. There are mixed feelings among fans regarding the rebuild, but floppy should keep hope alive as he’s a star player.
The new Cloud9 CS: GO roster will shift from an American base to the European region.

SKADE Disqualified from ESEA MDL Season 35
It seems that every passing week brings a negative light to the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive community. Over recent weeks, several star players announced their departure from the game as they transition to Valorant.
After dozens of coaches received bans for using a bug to their advantage, some have put their rosters in jeopardy. SKADE, who were ranked fourth on the ESEA MDL Season 35 standings, are now disqualified.
During Season 34, their coach, Nikolay “pNshr” Paunin, used a spectator bug in several rounds when the team played against Movistar Riders. ESIC have already sanctioned him, but the news that he used the bug in the ESEA MDL competition resulted in his team’s disqualification.
This dismissal opens the door for other rosters to move up the ladder, although the odds remain in Sprout’s favor to win the ESEA MDL S35 campaign.

Rumour has it that a new esports organization is forming and backed by Real Madrid star Casemiro. The group’s name is still unknown, but Imperial has already lost two key players to the new team.
Imperial recently confirmed they had sold Felipe “delboNi” Delbonit to the new organization, where he’ll reunite with Lucas “LUCAS1” Teles. LUCAS1 only spent a brief time with Imperial and announced his departure yesterday.
While we await the organization’s name and future roster announcement, we’re hoping that the two former teammates achieve more success than they did with Imperial.

On the other hand, Bokebi are on a winning streak, with their only loss coming from a match against the near-unstoppable cuteanimegirls.
