With Stewie2K heralded as one of the best NA CS:GO players to ever play the game, Floppy has very big shoes to fill on an expectant Cloud9 roster, seeking to make its way to the top. Here, we look at how he continues to defy the odds and consistently impress. 

Jacky ‘Stewie2K’ Yip leaving Cloud9 back in 2018 left an unmistakable gap at the heart of what had been a solid roster. While not hitting the heights of the best CS:GO rosters ever, they managed a number of impressive placements, with the biggest coming at the 2018 E LEAGUE Boston Major.

However, after the success, SK Gaming swooped for Stewie2K. Since then, Cloud9 have changed roster multiple times, struggling to replicate the success the North American star brought them.

The answer, potentially, lies with Ricky ‘floppy’ Kemery, a young rifler and AWPer who joined C9 in January of 2020. While the team has not been propelled to greatness just yet, they have placed consistently well at some of the game’s biggest tournaments.

4th place at Flashpoint Season 1 was followed by 5th-6th at BLAST Premier Spring 2020. They are not yet breaking the very top of professional CS:GO, but they’re as close as they’ve been for a while, and floppy is a massive part of that.

Kenny ‘kennyS’ Schrub is arguably Counter-Strike’s greatest AWPer of all-time and is considered one of the game’s most mechanically gifted players in history.

Kenny, has reached heights most aspiring pros could only dream of. But after leading his all-French lineup to their Major win, the sniping sensation has had his fair share of ups and downs.

After his roller-coaster time at Envy, Schrub moved to G2 Esports and this is where everything started falling into place. After taking some time restructuring the French AWPer now finds himself among a roster of players willing to support his unorthodox style of play.

One of the most impressive stats the veteran has is that he holds the record for the most AWP kills of all time with 18,371, with Guardian coming in second with 16,214, and ENCE star Allu is in third with 13,862.

A now rejuvenated Kenny is leading G2’s charge back to the top of CS:GO, but is the AWP GOAT past his sell-by date? Here’s what the stats say.
