Cloud9 part ways with Relyks, "More on C9 Blue's future to be announced in the coming days"

Written By    Germanicus  -  share on

After being a member of the team for 10 months, Cloud9 have announced that they’ve parted ways with Skyler "Relyks" Weaver from their Cloud9 Blue roster.

Relyks was one of the original members of Cloud9 Blue, and has been through it all - from some good results during the Ignition Series to First Strike disappointment to the recent rebuild. Never a star but always a solid piece, he has all-time stats of 216 ACS and 137.2 ADR. He’s also become something of the face of the team since Tyson "TenZ" Ngo’s departure, as the main role in their videos and content explaining where the roster has been headed.

Most recently, Cloud9 Blue have been just beginning to find success following their rebuild after TenZ stepped away. They qualified for Stage 2 Challengers 1, and came one map away from making top four with their loss to Version1. This put them in Challengers 2, with four more spots on the line for Challengers Finals.

In a follow-up tweet, Cloud9 state that “More on C9 Blue’s future will be announced in the coming days.” This could mean anything from a full dropping of the roster to a simple 1 for 1 replacement, the floor is wide open for speculation. Though it seems unlikely that C9 would drop their roster as they’ve just begun to garner some results, we’ll just have to wait and see.

Update: Relyks has released a Twitlonger, saying that the decision to part was mutual and on his end was primarily due to burnout. He's going to take things slow, streaming and resting while being open to the right offers.

Cloud9 Blue is now:

Mitch “mitch” Semago Nathan “leaf” Orf Son “xeta” Seon-ho Michael “poiz” Possis

Yoon “Autumn” Eu-teum (Head coach) James “JamezIRL” Macaulay (Assistant coach)

I don't agree with this decision. Cloud9 Blue has star players in leaf in poiz but team play is lacking here. I don't know how roster changes are going to solve that issue.

C9 top options (imo)

- Tarik
-Floppy or Xeppa
- Keiti (but she said she was taking a break)
-Get Tenz back (doubtful)

I don't think Tarik will join tbh I think he's gonna stay CSGO all the way. But Floppy and Xeppa could. Also, I don't think Keiti is gonna join c9 Blue either.
