After a two week break, the star AWPer returns to Cloud9’s active lineup.
Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham announced in late March that he would be stepping down from the team, following reports that Cloud9 are looking to bring in a replacement for Latham.
The plans went awry for the North American team after the departure of Jacky “Stewie2K” Yip, who was recruited by the Brazilian SK Gaming after the exit of Epitácio “TACO” de Melo. To make up for the loss of the team captain, C9 had to bring in Pujan “FNS” Mehta from compLexity Gaming, who will now take the in-game leading of the Major-winning team upon himself.
Following these changes, Skadoodle will be returning to Cloud9’s active roster immediately, the player announced on Twitter. The team’s first real challenge with the new lineup will be in few days’ time at DreamHack Masters Marseille, starting 18th of April.
