Cloud9’s official twitter page has tweeted out the following image, confirming a replacement in C9’s roster for the forthcoming ESL tournament in New York:
This apparent portrait delineates the return of Braxton ‘swag’ Pierce, a professional CS:GO player who had been a Cloud9 Twitch Streamer since 2015. The former iBuyPower member had been banned from tournaments by Valve for reasons of match fixing. With the recent amendment of the ESL rules, C9 has decided to bring swag back on the scene. Hitherto banned player(now relieved of his interdict), Braxton ‘swag’ Pierce will be representing Cloud9 on the stage, thereby replacing Timothy ‘autimatic’ Ta for the upcoming ESL One: New York which will begin this September.
