Cloud9 have announced that they have cut ties with Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan and Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen.
The North American team had been expected to undergo major roster changes following a series of mixed results that culminated with a 7th-8th place finish at the ESEA finals last weekend.
Shahzeb "ShahZaM" Khan, who had been brought in at the end of 2014 to replace Spencer "Hiko" Martin, had particularly come under fire from the community for some lacklustre performances in both domestic and international events.
The former Denial member has now been shown the exit door by Cloud9, with the player admitting to being unsatisfied with his individual performances during his five-month spell on the team.
"Honestly I’d like to thank the guys and Cloud9 itself for even giving me the opportunity in the first place," Khan said in a statement.
"I got the chance to experience many amazing things and travel places I never thought I would.Obviously things didn’t go as planned and the results these last couple months were lackluster.
"Cloud9 gave us everything we needed to achieve and we still didn’t deliver, representing NA CS:GO has a whole poorly. I was not satisfied with my own performances as well.
"It is completely understandable that there needed to be a change. The guys are still some of the best friends I could have made in my time playing CS and I honestly wish the best for their future.
"I look forward to seeing them competing as one of the best again."
ShahZaM is not the only player heading towards the exit door, however, as Cloud9 have also decided to release Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen, who had been part of the team since the early days of CS:GO, when they were donning Area51's colors.
In a statement, Cloud9 described this as "one of the more difficult moves" the organisation has had to make, but explained that the lineup was "simply not one of a functioning successful capacity."
"Going forward will be a challenge just as it is with any sort of change. At this point, I can safely say that we have hit rock bottom in terms of performance," said Cloud9 manager Tres “stunna” Saranthus.
"The common theme I read on forums is that we don’t care or that we aren’t trying and the reality is it’s easy for those on the outside to say that.
"Allow me to say and be very upfront, this isn’t a free ride nor will it ever be. I fully intend to bring Cloud9 CS:GO back to the tier it belongs within the global Counter-Strike community."
Cloud9 are the first side to act in what is expected to be a period of intense transfer activity in the top tier of North American Counter-Strike. CLG and Team Liquid have also been strongly linked with changes following sub-par results of their own in recent events.
North American fans were disappointed to see their teams finish in the bottom four places at the ESEA Finals without getting a single map off of European opposition in six matches.
Last night, the Daily Dot reported that CLG had benched Peter "ptr" Gurney following the team's 5th-6th place finish in Dallas.. Since then, speculation has been rife that he could be joining Cloud9, who are now looking for someone to take up the AWP following ShahZaM's departure.
Cloud9 currently have:
but still sad, hopefully these guys can go join another team and make a solid contender for NA #1.
I will say it like that - he will never play in a team if n0thing is play there*
ShahZaM go play Tibia or something you beggar.
you heard it here first
nothing really interesting ther tho, a lot of theory-crafting
cutting shahzam will be beneficial though, he needs to work on a lot of gameplay issues (at least he fixed a lot of his personality/drama issues though)
glad they're finally making some much needed changes
Also I dont think Hiko and Ska will join. Most likely ptr will leave CLG and maybe Freakazoid?
New lineup : Hiko, Ska, Semphis, roca, desi/elige
Really interested to see who they'll pick up to replace them.
Also stop saying +hiko and +ska....ska is retiring and hiko will not play with n0thing.
Best of luck to c9 to hopefully soon to be yet a top contender :)
What can I write here????
I would be surprised if Cloud9 did not start listening more to Sean.
I really hope it's Ska+Hiko+Semphis. What a beast lineup as it is.
They have a chance to compete with EU if they add hiko and skadoodle.. Don't think it will happen tho.
Get in some new blood and start performing guys! Go c9 <3
One continent dominating all others means less exciting tournaments. So get it together. GL for C9 and the NA scene in general.
+a team that deserves a good sponsor
Cloud 9 Skadoodle inc
I would prefer swag instead of n0thing and AZK instead of shroud but...
U will say n0thing and hiko bad chemistry, they don't like each other, blablabla. That's not proffesional so go bed muricans instead of playing cs
Anyways i am better than all this guys
like nicholas caged xDD
To those saying that Hiko wont play with n0thing, do you care to elaborate? I remember when he left C9, he said that he wanted the team to change their playstyle and the others wouldn't change, so he left. Where do you get from that n0thing was the problem?
2. Bringing in one or two European players, such as Maikelele (Maikelele announced that he have some excting news)
3. Still fail and /surrender
+ska+tarik/hiko (i believe tarik)
Also, Semphis runs pig strats almost exclusively. C9 needs some discipline on CT side which cant be done with pugs.
Shazam and Semphis used to play like gifted children before they were spoiled by Clown9...
This is what salary does to CS players, look at the way these people play CS now after they've been invited to C9.
"I wont play with him", "He's bad at calling" and these cringeworthy interviews with Thorin, dissecting a subject that isn't even supposed to be there in the first place.
If you want to be a part of top flight teams then act like it, not like prepubertal dramatic over-sensitive teenagers with aspergers.. 90's kids, jeez.
