Cloud9 member Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert has revealed that his team is considering the possibility of moving to Europe.
Since signing for Cloud9, in August, the former compLexity team’s results have been mixed, with a top-eight finish at ESL One Cologne being followed by a group exit at DreamHack Winter.
The North American team managed to qualify for ESL One Katowice after beating INSHOCK and Mousesports at the offline qualifier, but their chances of progression into the knockout rounds of the upcoming major look thin after being paired with Virtus.pro and Team SoloMid in the group stage.
Prior to DreamHack Winter, Cloud9 underwent an intensive three-week boot camp in Stockholm to cut out their mistakes from ESWC and FACEIT, but the team could soon take their training regime to a whole new level as a permanent move to Europe is currently under consideration.
“We have some pretty cool news, we might be moving to Europe this year,” Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert said during the All Work All Play podcast.
“In the next couple of months we will decide.”
Jordan “n0thing” Gilbert went on to say that the city of Berlin is a strong possibility for his team to move to, which would allow them to take part in the biggest European leagues and to practice constantly against the top sides in the continent.
