Cloud9 through a tweet have announced the departure of Tyson “TenZ” Ngo from their Valorant Blue roster.
TenZ, the first and original member of Cloud9’s Valorant Blue roster have decided to step down from the scene as the 19yo prodigy has decided to take up content creation for a while.
Tyson initially joined Cloud9 in July 2019 as a CSGO professional after the North American Organization decided to overhaul their roster. He later transitioned to becoming a full time streamer within the organization and went on to become the first member of Cloud9’s Pro Valorant team.
Under C9, TenZ steered the team to three runner-up finishes at the Immortals First Light, Pulse Invitational, PAX Arena Invitational. He has been known for his precise mechanical aim which puts him on top along with his reflexes, known to be the cherry on top. Cloud9 Blue were denied a spot at Valorant’s first strike tournament where they fell to the South Korean Organization T1, led by Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham.
It is believed that Tyson might return to the professional scene upon the return of LAN events.
After TenZ leaves C9, the Blue are now down to three players:
- Skyler “Relyks” Weaver
- Mitch “mitch” Semago
- Daniel “vice” Kim
- James “JamezIRL” Macaulay (Head Coach)
