Reported by the team manager itself initially, Cloud9’s fREAKAZOiD is no more a part of the active Counter Strike: Global Offensive roster, he will however remain in contract with Cloud9 till the early 2017 as a part of the contract. Team Liquid’s adreN will be stepping in to complete the lineup as reported by Tres ‘stunna’ Saranthus.
With no details whatsoever or any controversial upbringing, Cloud9 has announced the departure of fREAKAZOiD from their official CSO roster, this Cloud9 roster change was not foreseen, and comes as a shocker for everyone. The reason of the departure however isn’t yet clear.
We have tried to contact the management to get a clear vision of the picture as of why the change was made, but haven’t got any response as of publishing this article.
Cloud9 roster change
Tres ‘stunna’ Saranthus, in a press release on Cloud9’s official website acknowledged the extended support from Team Liquid and adreN:
“In light of this adjustmenet, the team will be using in Eric ‘adreN’ Hoag of Team Liquid (@TeamLiquidPro) as a stand-in. We would like to thank Team Liquid for this gesture!”
This change is getting a mixed response from the community, a part of it is supporting fREAKAZOiD and wondering if this is related to his personal life, whereas a section of gamers are criticizing him as an individual and human being, and clearly are happy with his departure from the roster. Earlier, he was ridiculed for bullying ‘s1mple’ in his stream during a live match, for which whole of Cloud9 management apologized.
It even can be the role of this incident, which has played part in this unfortunate event, but as delayed it may seem to be, Tres, would have mentioned this in the official release instead he choose to keep this under a hood and ask anybody who wanted to know to email him separately at [email protected].
