Cloud9 has joined the Apex Legends scene after revealing its full four-man roster on Twitter earlier today.
Jamison “PVPX” Moore was the first player to join the squad, having signed with the team in February. Greg “Grego” McAllen, who formerly played Overwatch for the original C9 team prior to the launch of the Overwatch League, then joined PVPX on the Apex team at the start of this month.
Joseph “Frexs” Sanchez and Justin “Chappie” Andrews join PVPX and Grego as the final players on the team. Both Frexs and Chappie competed in PUBG alongside one another under the C9 banner and will now play as a part of the organization’s Apex team.
Likewise, Frexs and Chappie played together alongside Overwatch player and former Halo 5 pro Brian “Kephrii” St. Pierre in the Twitch Rivals Apex Legends Challenge, one of the first online tournaments for the battle royale game. The team locked down fifth place on the second day of the two-part tournament.
Over the past month and a half following its release, Apex has exploded in popularity, demanding attention from esports organizations across the globe. NRG Esports stepped up as one of the first organizations to sign players for the new battle royale title, and others, including TSM, 100 Thieves, and T1 Entertainment & Sports, quickly followed suit.
