Cloud9 have enlisted the man from a land down under
Cloud9 have announced a new addition to their coaching staff with the addition of Australian coach/YouTuber Chris "Elmapuddy" Tebbit. Elmapuddy will be joining the organization as assistant coach and analyst.
Elmapuddy is well known in the Australian scene for his time working with ORDER, where he spent nearly a year as their coach. During his tenure with the squad, ORDER notably finished first place in ESEA MDL Season 30 Australia and ESL AU & NZ Championship - Season 8.
Outside of his work as a coach, Elmapuddy also runs a popular YouTube channel where he breaks down players and teams playstyles and does other CS:GO analysis content.
His addition comes as Cloud9 are still working out the kinks in their new lineup. In their last three outings, Cloud9 were bested by Liquid, FURIA, and NRG in relatively one-sided series.
With the addition of Elmapuddy, Cloud9 are now:
- Timothy "autimatic" Ta
- Kenneth "koosta" Suen
- Damian "daps" Steele
- Tyson "TenZ" Ngo
- Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas
- James "JamezIRL" Macaulay (Coach)
- Chris "Elmapuddy" Tebbit (Coach/Analyst)
- Will "RUSH" Wierzba (Inactive)
- Maikil "Golden" Selim (On loan to Fnatic)
Cloud9's next confirmed outing will see them compete in ESL Pro League Season 10, which is set to begin on October 8th.
