Sniper Ozgur “woxic” Ecker will leave the Cloud9 CS:GO starting lineup. His place in the team will be taken by former Chaos member Erik Xeppaa Bach. This was reported by the portal Rush B Media.
It is assumed that the decision to replace woxic is not related to the player’s performance. One of the insiders also noted that Ecker’s move to the reserve was not due to any conflicts within the team. Earlier, insider Guillaume neL Canelo reported about Xeppaa joining Cloud9. At that time, the former member Chaos was considered the sixth player of C9.
According to Rush B Media, Bach will not be the team’s new sniper – Captain Alex ALEX McMeekin will play the role. Woxic joined Cloud9 in September 2020, having signed a three-year contract with the organization – the cost of the transfer, taking into account the player’s salary, was $ 1.365 million.With him, the team entered the top 4 BLAST Premier: Fall 2020 Showdown, and also performed at Flashpoint Season 2 and DreamHack Showdown Winter 2020. The club did not officially announce Ecker’s departure from the starting CS: GO roster.
