Robin "flusha" Rönnquist is the newest member of Cloud9's CS:GO team.

Following yesterday's news that flusha would be standing in for Cloud9 at the upcoming BLAST Pro Series Istanbul, the organization has officially announced his permanent addition to their roster.

This comes in the wake of last week's announcement that the long-time Fnatic player had been benched following a disappointing finish at the London Major for his former team.

"Main reasons for this is I will have a lot of time to focus on just CS and myself," flusha wrote in a TwitLonger. "...seeing if I still have what it takes to compete at the top level and what my feelings towards the game really is, I spread a lot of negativity within the last couple of months playing with Fnatic and I want to apologize to jw, krimz, draken, xizt and jumpy for behaving the way I did."

“flusha is an absolute legend," said C9 owner and CEO Jack Etienne in a press release, "and I’m thrilled we’re getting a chance to work with him. The work ethic he has needed to sustain success at the highest level is going to be a great fit for our roster and organization."

With this move, C9 have also announced the release of Martin "STYKO" Styk, who indicated there are no hard feelings regarding his departure in a TwitLonger on his own.
