Cloud9 CEO after Perfecto and HObbit bench: "We won't be disbanding"


Cloud9 CEO Jacques Etienne assured fans of the team that they are not disbanding the CS2 roster following the bench of Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy and Abay "HObbit" Khassenov. He addressed them on the official subreddit dedicated to the organization.

According to Etienne, the team will be rebuilt around Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhaylov and Sergey "Ax1Le" Rykhtorov. They are the only members of the team currently left in the active roster, together with the coach Konstantin "groove" Pikiner.

Perfecto and HObbit were benched on the same day, April 22. Cloud9 is ready to take transfer offers on both players. According to the announcement in Russian in Telegram, it was a mutual decision. For some reason, that part was not included in the tweet in English.

Denis "electronic" Sharipov was the first to leave the team few days before that. He joined in a very unexpected move, not leaked by any insiders in the scene.
