There’s turmoil in the Cloud9 CS:GO camp. VPEsports has learned the organization is leaning towards not attending the upcoming DreamHack Atlanta Open event due to “team troubles.”
At this point, VPEsports was informed that it is more likely the team will not attend the $100,000 event than will.
Cloud9 recently replaced Tyson “TenZ” Ngo with Yassine “Subroza” Taoufik after there was a clash of style which saw the young talent the odd man out. Subroza most recently played on Swole Patrol and revealed his departure from the squad just last week after the team had a poor showing at the ESL Pro League Season 10 Group A in the Americas.
It seems the team’s issues haven’t quite been fixed, however, as they prepare to pull out of the tournament. If Cloud9 were to withdraw, it would leave only one North American team to compete on home soil.
DreamHack Atlanta will feature teams from all around the globe including Virtus.pro, The Quest, DreamHack Open Rotterdam winners CR4ZY, and more.
Scheduled to kick off on Friday, November 15, it will be a tight schedule for the event organizer to find a replacement team.
Cloud9 management has not responded to requests for comment at this time.
