On 26th March 2021, esports organization Cloud9 put their CS:GO division on hold, benching all players in the "Colossus" and opening them up for transfer offers. Earlier this week, Cloud9 also released their assistant coach, so it was only a matter of time before the British caster turned CS:GO general manager would have to leave as well. Henry "HenryG" Greer has parted ways with Cloud9, leaving his general manager role behind.
HenryG parts ways with Cloud9
On 8th March, before Cloud9's CS:GO roster was put on hold, HenryG spoke out about the villain narrative forming around him, and defended his transparency about player salaries for the Colossus CS:GO roster.
HenryG joined Cloud9 back in September 2020, with his main responsibility as GM of the CS:GO decision to create the ambitious Colossus European CS:GO roster.
Several issues quickly became apparent, with coach Kassad leaving, and Woxic being released due to high ping as well as a "compromising time zone".
All this and much more, including struggles due to the COVID-19 pandemic, for example, not being able to get all their players in one place, led to Cloud9 to put their CS:GO division on hold.
Now, HenryG has taken to Twitter to announce he is parting ways with Cloud9.
HenryG explained that he is taking a break but he will be back: "While the space is in this strange transition period I have decided to take a sabbatical and enjoy some of the normality that life has to offer. It's certainly been a while. I will be back eventually when the right opportunity arises. Be good to each other."
Cloud9's Colossus roster struggled to gain any momentum or post any significant results since its formation. Therefore, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that HenryG has now also parted ways with the organization following the fall of the "Colossus".
