We featured the prestigious Cloud9 esports organization in our first iteration of major organizations yet to pick up VALORANT rosters, but their team is slowly getting built up. The organization revealed today Skyler “Relyks" Weaver as the second member of their official VALORANT competitive roster, alongside their first acquisition, Tyson ‘TenZ’ Ngo.

Skyler “Relyks” Weaver is a former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive professional player, and was part of Misfits Gaming, eUnited, and other esteemed organizations. During his career, he managed to pick up the EGLX 2018 title, the Americas Minor Championship - Columbus 2016, and his latest achievement, finishing seventh with Team Singularity in the ESL Pro League Season 10 - Americas.

As for his VALORANT career, Relyks has already represented Cloud9 twice, during the Immortals First Light and the Elite Esports - Rivalry Bowl North America. He managed to come out victorious in the latter while placing second in Immortals’ tournament. His performance has been nothing short of impressive during that tournament, putting up a 409 ACS game on Bind with 27 kills and only 9 deaths.

Relyks and TenZ have always dominated their team’s leaderboards whenever they play together, and putting them alongside each other officially in one team will keep pushing them to improve. Cloud9’s roster is definitely shaping up to be a force to reckon with going into the upcoming T1 x NSG VALORANT Showdown and Pulse Invitational tournaments.

VALORANT’s ranked mode should go live in the next few hours. Considering Tyson “TenZ” Ngo was the first North American player to achieve the VALORANT rank before its rename to Radiant, it will be interesting to see whether he is able to replicate this achievement queueing up alongside Skyler “Relyks" Weaver.

Current Cloud9 roster consists of:
