Cloud9 has continued to expand its Valorant roster with the signing of former CS:GO player Skyler "Relyks" Weaver. He joins Tyson "TenZ" Ngo as the second addition to the newfound team ahead of its upcoming match at the T1 x Nerd Street Gamers Showdown.
The 25-year-old has previously played for teams, such as eUnited, Misfits Gaming, and TSM, but has now shifted his focus to Riot's new 5-on-5 shooter. His newfound team, Cloud9, enjoyed success earlier in the year and came out top at the Elite Esports - Rivalry Bowl North America after toppling Highground 2-0 in the grand final.
This Friday, June 26, will see the team compete for the first time with Relyks as an official member at the first North American event in the Ignition Series. The event features a $50,000 prize pool and will see 16 teams, including Team Ninja ,Immortals, and Sentinels go head-to-head.
