Cloud9 CEO shuts down Bjergsen & Hans sama rumors

Could9 founder and CEO, Jack Etienne, has revealed on Twitter that Cloud9’s new starting roster will not include the three players fans were hoping for.

“After last year I’ve learned to be careful about sharing roster information early but I’d like to clarify one false rumor,” he writes, stating “I’m certain the roster will not include any of the following people: @Bjergsen, @G2Mikyx, @Hanssama.”

Noting that “they are all incredible players,” he concludes that they “won’t be joining C9.”

A series of responses poking fun at the rumors dominate the comments. Cloud9’s official Twitter account asks “so you’re saying we lost the off-season once again?”

Even Perkz himself decided to join in the fun, writing “I sure hope ure [sic] not getting Bjergsen while I’m on the roster Jack. That’d be GIIIIIGA SUS.”

As most LoL fans know, Perkz is no stranger to role swapping from mid to ADC, so if C9 had managed to pick up the Danish superstar you never know, maybe we’d have seen Perkz switching roles once again.
