Cloud9 has just announced that it has signed William "mezii" Merriman to its CS:GO roster. The 22-year-old rifler joins the team after the signing of ALEX, who was recently made captain in a deal worth a staggering $1.65 million.
Mezii has previously played for teams, such as Vexed Gaming and TeamGamer Legion, and has now committed to three years with Cloud9 with a salary of $426,000.
Cloud9 Manager, Henry 'HenryG' Greer, said: "With the beefy acquisition of Mezii, prodigal son of the UK, I can emphatically state that British Counter-Strike is back on the menu and what might at first sound like an exotic name to many of you will soon be as familiar and beloved as mum's Sunday roast beef with all the trimmings. Ladies and gentlemen, this young man will make up the meat of my multi-national feast, anchoring sites and delivering reliably supportive performances to create the foundation from which our stars can excel."
