Cloud9 Welcomes Two North American Fortnite Squads

We at Cloud9 are thrilled to announce a massive addition to our family and to our Fortnite lineup! Please join us in welcoming Maurilio Blind Gramajo, Nicholas zoof Zufan, and Rex Topboy Holmstrom, all formerly of Team X, along with the Who Are They? roster of Christian Criz Rizk, Jared Bandit Jones, Clemente Shivsy Ibarra, and Brennan boss Amiott!

You’ve probably already seen some of Team X’s highlights, as both Topboy and Blind were in action at Ninja Vegas 18, with Blind putting himself on the map as the only player to achieve Victory Royale multiple times, as well as being the first player to eliminate Ninja at the tournament. Topboy, Blind, and zoof will be joined by a to-be-determined fourth with tryouts already under way as they round out their squad and prepare for competition!


Not to be outdone, the Who Are They? roster came out as champions in Season 3 of the StepOneBR Scrim League, racking up 31 wins and coming away with 1st place out of 320 registered teams. In doing so, they became one of three teams to accomplish over 30 wins on PC. Doesn’t hurt to have the #1-ranked player in Nevada in Shivsy backing you up!

“I can’t tell you how excited I am to be building out these rosters for Fortnite and I think we’ve got an incredible head start by bringing both of these teams on board. I know they’re going to establish Cloud9 right off the bat.”
— Jack Etienne, Cloud9 CEO & Founder

The work doesn’t stop here, however, as Cloud9 continues to be on the lookout for talented players to bring on board, both to our professional and streaming teams. We’re looking forward to bringing you more updates soon, and until then... Where we droppin’?
