Mixwell leaves Cloud9 esports ahead of the 2020 CS:GO season and is now set to be a free agent.
Cloud9 has recently released Oscar “mixwell” Cañellas in their CS:GO roster. AWPer Mixwell has played in the organisation through BLAST Pro Series Los Angeles and Copenhagen this year. After the recent releases, he was the only active player in the roster.
Despite being the only active player, mixwell wasn’t the only player that left Cloud9’s roster this month. The organisation have released three other players in their CS:GO roster. Former Cloud9 players Damian “daps” Steele, Kenneth “koosta” Suen, and Timothy “autimatic” Ta have also signed with Gen.G‘s CS:GO roster recently.
Cloud9 was the second time mixwell was playing in a North American organisation. Mixwell has been very successful in the CS:GO scene during his time in OpTic Gaming’s roster. He played for OpTic for two years in 2016 and 2017. Unfortunately, he never reached the same success in Cloud9’s roster. After the OpTic Gaming, he has also played for Movistar Riders in Europen CS:GO scene. However, they often participated in minor tournaments.
There has been rumours of Cloud9 trying to sign ATK’s lineup in their roster for the upcoming CS:GO 2020 season. Now, with mixwell gone, it is very likely that Cloud9 will move further trying to include Johnny “JT” Thedosiou, Ian “motm Hardy, Aran “Sonic” Groesbeek, Ricky “floppy” Kemery, and Joshua “oSee” Ohm in their roster.
Currently, Cloud9’s coach James “JamezIRL” Maculay and Tyson “TenZ” Ngo are the only players in the organisation’s CS:GO roster. Furthermore, TenZ is already a benched player in the roster. If ATK signings go through, the organisation is likely going to make a complete overhaul in their CS:GO roster. This means both JamezIRL and TenZ are probably to be replaced before the upcoming CS:GO 2020 season.
