Xeppaa and floppy leave CS:GO and switch to Valorant


Ricky “⁠floppy⁠” Kemery and Erick “⁠Xeppaa⁠” Bach has stepped back from Counter-Strike and will continue his career for Cloud9 in Valorant, the North American organization has announced.

The North American players were a part of Cloud9’s inactive roster since March 2021, finally deciding to quit CS:GO and move on to compete in Valorant. They have joined Cloud9 Blue, who had been depleted to just a four-man roster following the departure of Skyler “Relyks” Weaver, after a series of mediocre performances.

Both the players were a part of Cloud9’s CS:GO rebuild, termed “The Colossus.” Sadly, the incredibly hyped project failed to live up to what was promised, handing out a trail of disappointing performances one after the other. This lead to the organization pulling the plug and announcing their temporary exit from the esports title in March earlier this year.
