Cloud9 sign CS:GO Academy line-up

For its brand new academy line-up, Cloud9 has chosen Russian talent. With Artem “sstr1ct” Mesnyankin, Vladislav “h1te” Khait, Maksim “dekz” Korolev, Matvey “sm3t” Gogin and in-game leader Daniil “alpha” Demin, Cloud9 has now its own Academy line-up that will try to break into the CS:GO scene.

F_1N back in the role of coach after a two-year break

According to the official statement of the North American organization, Ivan “F_1N” Kochugov will coach and get the new team ready to go. The 38-year-old Russian worked previously as an analyst for Cloud9, since the organization acquired the former Gambit squad in April 2022. Despite having years of coaching experience, F_1N had to take a two-year break when the Esports Integrity Commission suspended him along with 36 other coaches for exploiting viewer bugs.
