Cloud9 transfers floppy and Xeppaa from Counter-Strike to VALORANT team

Two players from Cloud9's canceled Colossus project in CS:GO will be trying their luck in VALORANT next, on Cloud9 Blue.

Cloud9 transfers floppy and Xeppaa from Counter-Strike to VALORANT team

Cloud9 has expanded its VALORANT Blue team with two surprising names. Ricky "floppy" Kemery and Erick "Xeppaa" Bach are making a switch from Counter-Strike to trying their hand at competing in Riot Games' shooter.

Both floppy and Xeppaa initially were part of Cloud9's Colossus project, which aimed to build a new powerhouse team in the CS:GO scene. With that project being canceled earlier this year after disappointing results, the organisation had to find a new home for those under contract.

Cloud9 is still in the running for a ticket to the first-ever VALORANT Masters LAN tournament, to be held in Reykjavik, Iceland at the end of May. The team will need to put up high results in the qualifiers in order to stay in the running, however, as the window of opportunity is closing.
