Cloud9 announces VALORANT superteam

Complexity-Yay-2019 valorant

In news absolutely no one was expecting, Cloud9 has finally announced the members of their new VALORANT superteam.

As originally reported by Dot Esports, both Jacob “yay” Whiteaker and Jordan “Zellsis” Montemurro have both joined the North American organization.

The Americas superteam

Multiple teams in the VCT Americas region might be building superteams, however, it is hard to argue against the strength of Cloud9’s. yay, who is otherwise known as “el diablo”, was the best player in the world over the course of 2022. His ex-OpTic team was also the best team over the course of 2022, winning an event while also finishing runner-up and third at two more.

Zellsis on the other hand has not enjoyed as much success in VALORANT, that being said, he has hugely impressed. In his time on Version1 he finished top 6 at Stage 2 Masters Reykjavík and was regarded as one of the best players in NA. He later was loaned to Sentinels although they failed to qualify for international LANs during his time on the team.

The American is no stranger to Cloud9, having played for the organization in CSGO. He is fondly remembered for a pistol ace he got attacking Mirage’s B site at IEM Katowice 2019.

The three remaining players were all signed to Cloud9 before they became a superteam. Anthony “vanity” Malaspina previously played with Zellsis on Version1. The other two members Nathan “leaf” Orf and Erick “xeppaa” Bach were both teammates of Vanity in CSGO, where they played together for Chaos Esports Club.

The trio is all considered to be exceptionally mechanically gifted, even vanity who serves as their IGL. They will be joined by Matthew “mCe” Elmore as their coach and Mateja “qpert” Mijovic who will serve as their sixth player.
