Cloud9 (Streamer)

Braxton "swag" Pierce is a professional Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player, most known for his time in compLexity and Team iBUYPOWER. He was widely considered to be one of America's best young talents. Following a Valve investigation, he was one of 7 individuals permanently banned from Valve events for his participation in the North American match fixing scandal.[1] He is currently a CS:GO streamer at Cloud9.[2][3]

Information[edit]

Professional Career[edit]

swag's first major appearance in CS:GO was being part of Team Dynamic during Season 12 of ESEA. From there, he joined compLexity, which competed at ESL One Katowice 2014, as well as multiple ESEA seasons. Later, he was acquired by iBUYPOWER[4] in exchange for Todd anger Williams[5].iBUYPOWER were widely considered during this time to be the best North American side. During his time on the team, they reached the FACEIT League - Season 2 finals, after beating then-Team LDLC.com (now Team EnVyUs)[6], before suffering a loss to fnatic.

After their successes, the iBUYPOWER roster changed massively, with swag remaining unchanged throughout. On the 5th of January, he and his fellow teammates left the iBUYPOWER organisation and founded GX. They were widely expected to be secured by Evil Geniuses. On the 26th of January, following rumors that a CEVO Season 5 match vs NetcodeGuides.com had the result fixed by the then-iBUYPOWER roster[7] [8], swag was banned alongside 6 other people from all Valve-sponsored events.[1]
