Cloud9 Extends STYKO Through September

We at Cloud9 are excited to announce that our loan of Martin STYKO Styk has been extended through September and he will be representing us at the upcoming FACEIT Major: London 2018!

Styko came to us by way of Mousesports, where he helped lead the team to victory at StarLadder & i-League StarSeries Season 4 and a 2nd-place finish at ESL One: Belo Horizonte 2018. Having been with Cloud9 since late June, Styko has represented Cloud9 at both ESL One: Cologne 2018 and ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2018 and has quickly acclimated to the team and organization.

“I am extremely excited to continue working with Martin. It has been clear from day one that he deserves to be competing at the highest levels, and he has an incredible mindset for a team game. All of us are looking forward to showing off a revitalized Cloud9 at the major, and we expect Martin to be a huge part of it!”
— Soham "Valens" Chowdhury, Cloud9 CS:GO Coach
“We’re thrilled to have STYKO with us heading into the London Major. The promise we’ve seen in him gave the players, coaches and management the confidence needed to extend his trial, and we’re grateful to have him with us.”
— Jack Etienne, Cloud9 CEO & Owner

With Styko signed on, the full roster is in place and the team continues to prepare to defend their title as Major Champions, having secured victory in January at ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018. FACEIT Major: London 2018 kicks off on September 5th and, just like the fans, we’re eager to see the team back in action!
