CS:GO News – Cloud9 Add Golden From Fnatic
The recent name that has come up in the transfer list is the swedish talent Maikil “Golden”Selim who is joining Cloud9 on immediate basis.
After the recent news of Tarik “tarik” Celik moving over to MIBR, Cloud9 was left with only a three-man roster. During interview with the team captain Will “RUSH” Wierzba, Cloud9 were also thing of having an international lineup and this seems to be the second international player to be added in the NA squad.
Maikil “Golden”Selim comes into Cloud9 with loads of experience, skill and achievement from the Swedish side. The player is currently himself looking for better opportunities after recently being benched by Fnatic who signed William “draken”Sundin from NiP.
Although short, Maikil “Golden”Selim’s time span in Fnatic allowed the team to win IEM Katowice and WESG and some good places at DreamHack Masters, ECS Season 4 and ESL Pro League Season 6.
His stay at Cloud9 will allow more room for Golden to grow as a player and an IGL who was kind of hidden in the shadows in the star studded lineup of Fnatic. But considering the wins under his belt, the addition of Golden to the team would surely be a great one.
Very excited for this https://t.co/GXJ1nIZWUs
