“We at Cloud9 are excited to welcome the newest member of our Counterstrike: Global Offensive roster, Robin flusha Rönnquist! flusha is one of the most successful players in history, having been in the competitive CS:GO circuit since 2012, and we’re all thrilled to welcome him to the Cloud9 family.
The wealth of experience he brings is almost unparalleled, having this year alone helped Fnatic to championships at WESG 2017 and the IEM XII – World Championship. But it is 2015 that stands out as a year every pro hopes to achieve one day, as flusha helped lead Fnatic to two Major championships, at ESL One: Cologne 2015 and ESL One: Katowice 2015, as well as championships in ESL ESEA Pro League Season 1 and Season 2. The three-time major winner has built a legacy to stand the test of time, and we can’t wait to see him build upon it with Cloud9!”
