cajunb found himself removed from OpTic’s lineup following the recent addition of Mathias “MSL” Lauridsen and Nikolaj “niko” Kristensen by the organization.
The report goes on to say that it is currently unknown who the Danish player would replace on Cloud9. The organization recently added Daniel “vice” Kim on trial but have yet to test the waters with him in a live match environment. The team also can’t get rid of Timothy “autimatic” Ta, William “RUSH” Wierzba, or Fabien “kioShiMa” Fiey for fear of losing their spot at the next Major due to the roster requirements set forth by Valve. Replacing their in-game leader who they’ve waited so long for seems unlikely.
One option is of course to once again use the coaching rules to loop hole the system and allow for them to compete but it’s still uncertain whether that could work again or is the route they wish to take.
cajunb has spent almost all of his time competing in Danish lineups and this would be his first on such an international scale with two North Americans, a Swede, and a Frenchman (assuming he was replacing Vice).
