Cloud9 is working to create a super team for the upcoming 2023 VCT ​​season as the organization is reportedly ready to sign OpTic Gaming player, according to a report from Dot Esports.

yay was statistically the best player in the world over the course of 2022, as OpTic placed the top three at all three major international events this year. OpTic failed to make it into the Riot Games’ partner competitions, which is why the Valorant roster is on sale for organizations to take over next year.

Cloud9 looks set to be the first organization to sign a deal with any of the former OpTic players as yay will join a team with three active members on the roster. Cloud9 put Mitch ‘mitch’ Semago and Rahul ‘curry’ Nemani on the bench on September 22 and must fill a six-man roster at the end of October.
