Keiti and Cloud9 part ways

Written By    Germanicus  -  share on

Cloud9 have announced that Kaitlin "Keiti" Boop has been released from Cloud9 White.

The move is certainly an odd one. To put it simply, Keiti has dominated all competition - Game Changers, Challengers, everything - ever since joining the C9 White roster in January as a stand-in for Jasmine "Jazzyk1ns" Manankil. At one point, her statlines put her among the very best in the world, and the 277 ACS as of right now still keeps her up there. C9 White won Game Changers North America Series 1 - Main Event without dropping a single map, and have begun to find more success in Challengers qualifiers as well. Only last month, she was fully signed to the team.

There’s multiple theories floating around as to why this move was made. One is that Keiti was poached by another organization - Evil Geniuses is a name being thrown around a lot. Another is simply that school is beginning to wind down, so Jazzyk1ns may be more active with the main roster again. Whatever the reasoning, though, we’ll certainly soon find out, as a player of her calibre isn’t likely to be teamless for long.

Cloud9 White is now:

katsumi Jasmine “Jazzyk1ns” Manankil Annie “AnnieDro” Roberts Melanie “meL” Capone Alexis “alexis” Guarrasi

Chris “Dream” Myrick (Head coach) Jornen “MoonChopper” Nishiyama (Strategic coach)

I'm pretty sure Keiti was on the roster because Jazzyk1ns was on the fence about esports because she is so young. But really unfortunate for her since not a lot of orgs are comfortable with a 6 women roster.

2021-04-13 21:48
Rep the set Rep the set
2021-04-14 10:08
The boys in X-Set needs some love tbh
2021-04-14 10:33
With patch 2.06 being implemented into pro play, XSET is honestly going to be one of the best teams because they have Wedid, who is practically a viper god.
2021-04-14 11:55
ahhh yes the Xset simps are gathering lmao
2021-04-14 12:36
yes
2021-04-14 16:33
Rep the Set Brotha
2021-04-14 18:02
Xset will always be top 4 but never first
2021-04-14 18:21
+1 but they did exceed my expectations
2021-04-14 18:30
It all came down to them sage walls man
2021-04-14 10:30
xD gave up on imt to support xset haha
2021-04-14 16:33
shhhhh lmao
2021-04-14 18:03
tbh Twitch chat was toxic to IMT fans
2021-04-14 18:03
it shouldnt be tbh toxic behavour should exist this game couldve set the path for that shame, try and stick with these ones xset are a decent team consistant with room to grow
2021-04-14 18:16
more like being toxic towards IMT cuz they deserve it
2021-04-14 18:20
You talking baout the org itself or the team?
2021-04-14 18:32
unfortunately the org i wouolld say theyve bought some ne teams that people werent happy with trying to make off a their own ie. optic gaming and mibr
2021-04-14 18:56
oh right! That did happen. Fuck man I supported them as a team ;-;
2021-04-14 19:11
i meant the team, awful performance vs C9 when people claimed IMT is a better team than 100t
2021-04-14 19:34
Unfortunate for a great player to be leaving the best female roster in Valorant, but I doubt she's gonna stay teamless. Why not join a roster that's not all female that's in search of a duelist/entry?

That would be dope, Keiti can hang with the best of them.
2021-04-14 00:21

2021-04-14 03:03
Anything other than a T2/T1 mixed roster would be a disappointment for me, massive talent
2021-04-14 10:36
yeah she prob the best female in val as a duelist
2021-04-14 10:41
She was playing good against mdl male teams on csgo I can see her playing on a NA male team

He's lost all respect with this and supporting his own delsions even after this is just silly.
2021-04-18 04:04
Leo | omgmico
is she thinks shes a girl then ill respect her, she still a weirdo and doesn't deserve a place in any esport

I'll respect him up until the point where he starts abusing and manpulating women
2021-04-18 15:21
preeeeeeety sure Annie is the trans member of c9w not Keiti. Also respect people's pronouns even if they are assholes.
2021-04-18 16:22
