One of North America’s finest sniper, Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham announces his retirement from the competitive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene and he’s no more part of the active Cloud9 roster.
Skadoodle declined to explain the decision. He just tweeted that his future in CS: GO is vague.
Currently inactive with csgo, the future is uncertain and that is all guys thank you

Skadoodle achieved the biggest win of his career on Jan. 28, when Cloud9 won the ELEAGUE Major: Boston. They became the first North American roster to ever win a Major event. He was also the longest standing player on the Cloud9 CS:GO roster.
Additionally—as Stewie2k is rumored to join the Brazilian squad along with FalleN, Fer, Coldzera & Boltz—Cloud9 have reportedly been looking to find a Swedish replacement, Richard “Xizt” Landström. Cloud9 are in the midst of negotiations with Xizt’s former team NiP as the 27-year-old is still under contract with the Swedish organization, HLTV reported.
According to insiders, Cloud9 may lose another player. The 24-year-old is being replaced by former Team Liquid AWPer Josh “JDM” Marzano, according to DBL Tap.
Cloud9’s roster now consists of :
- Jake “Stewie2k” Yip
- Timothy “autimatic” Ta
- Villas “RUSH” Wierszba
- Tarik “tarik” Celik
