Will “RUSH” Wierzba is a 24-year-old rifler for Cloud9’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team who began his competitive career in 2013. RUSH started off his esports career in a manner similar to many of his peers, as he bounced to ten different teams in the first two years of his career. In January 2016, however, he finally got the opportunity to show his skills on the gaming world’s largest stages after being signed by OpTic Gaming. RUSH made an immediate impact during his time at OpTic, which was capped off by a team victory at ELEAGUE Season 2 and his earning ELEAGUE Season 2 MVP, as determined by HLTV.

On August 15th, 2017, RUSH was signed to Cloud9, and once again, RUSH wasted no time in producing results, helping Cloud9 to victory at the ESL One: New York 2017 - North America Qualifier just five days into his tenure. After first-place finishes at DreamHack Open Denver 2017 and iBUYPOWER Masters 2017, RUSH and Cloud9 had put the world on notice.

At the 2018 Boston ELEAGUE Majors, RUSH and Cloud9 fired the shots heard ‘round the esports world. After an inauspicious start to the New Legends Stage, Cloud9 found themselves in an 0-2 hole. RUSH and the team rallied with their backs to the wall, pulling out three consecutive victories to advance. After dispatching G2 in clinical fashion in the quarterfinals, and moving past SK Gaming in the semifinals, the plucky underdogs had earned a date in the finals with Faze Clan. In an instant classic that was voted the Best Esports Moment for 2018 by The Game Awards, RUSH and Cloud9 absolutely refused to say die, taking 6 of the last 7 rounds of the deciding match to force overtime in the final. After being pushed to double overtime, RUSH finally snipped the wires on the bomb and turned fantasy into reality. Cinderella had crashed the ball, and Cloud9 had seized the first ever CS:GO major victory for a North American team in history.

RUSH and Cloud9 definitely know that a team that’s out of sync isn’t going to go far, and that’s why they choose HyperX Cloud headsets to provide them with crystal-clear communication in the clutch. Teamwork makes the dream work, even if that dream is as crazy as coming from behind to make history.
