Is Stewie2k moving to SK gaming? Maybe!
Is one of the best Counter-Strike pros in the world leaving one of the best teams in the world?
Well, apparently, SK Gaming are turning their attention to Cloud9s Jake ‘Stewie2K’ Yip, who has been totally on fire in recent months. So you can easily see why the Brazilians want to snap him up for their team which already has FalleN in their ranks.
In fact, SK have allegedly already made advances for Aleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev and Egor “flamie” Vasilye. However, neither were quite ready to leave Na`Vi, as they posted on social media.
According to Flickshot.fr, FalleN and the rest of the SK team are confident of securing their man. And apparently, Stewie2K will be taking Epitácio de Melo aka Taco’s spot.
If you watched any of Cloud9s recent tournaments, then you’ll know just why Stewie2K is so in demand. Especially after some fantastic AWPing and some rather ridiculous clutches, with the clash against FaZe at the Boston Masters.
As you can imagine, with Cloud9 and Stewie’s popularity, there was plenty of discussion on Twitter about the potential move to SK.
In fact, here are some of the best reactions to Stewie2k to SK gaming.
i just cant imagine loading up an esl pro league match on facebook and seeing stewie2k on a team with coldzera and fallen

Im listening to these Stewie2k to SK rumors and im just thinking "didnt the owner of C9 say they were signed to long term contracts?". Im seriouly confused on why C9 would let SK buy out Stewie. I mean i guess it is a business and business is a money game.

If/when Stewie2k leaves Cloud9 for SK, it'll be a another instance of prestige mattering much more than current rankings/achievements. Cloud9 won the Major and HLTV ranks them the #2 team in the world, but he'd rather take a huge risk to play with with FalleN, Coldzera, and Fer.

Ok so now SK Gaming may be getting Stewie2K, but I must say I think Stewie will be a pretty nice upgrade from TACO
