HenryG has fulfilled his role since the month of September last year. Once he took up the mantle, he revamped the entire CS: GO roster for Cloud 9. Starting with Alex ‘ALEX’ McMeekin, he signed several other European pros like Özgür ‘woxic’ Eker from Mousesports, and William ‘mezii’ Merriman from GamerLegion. Furthermore, he successfully added former Astralis pro Patrick ‘Es3tag’ Hansen to the C9 CS: GO roster.

However, the roster saw a fair share of its bad days soon after. The team failed to perform well at the Flashpoint Season 2, although they did have somewhat of a comeback at the Blast Premier Fall 2020 Showdown. Subsequently, kassad and woxic dropped from the roster, leaving it uncertain yet again. This led to a lot of recombinations in the roster yet again, resulting in underperformance.

Cloud 9 decided to dissolve the current roster last week. Most of the players are currently on the transfer list. Of course, the pandemic situation that arose last year had a major hand in this. Furthermore, the remote training program that the roster undertook failed to show in the team’s overall performance.

These are the events that preceded Henry taking his leave from one of the most iconic eSports organizations. However, he makes it clear in his tweet that this might be a hiatus. From the tweet, it seems that he plans on returning to the organization if the time is right.
