sgares steps down from Cloud9

MIRAA
November 24th, 2015 22:52

Sean "seang@res" Gares has stepped down from Cloud9's active lineup with immediate effect, the team has revealed.

The announcement comes just days after the team's quarter-final exit at IEM San Jose following a 1-2 defeat against TSM, who would go on to finish runners-up to Natus Vincere.

Prior to the ESL event, Cloud9 had won back-to-back domestic titles at the iBP Invitational and the RGN Pro Series Championship, with the team having attended the latter with Braxton "swag" Pierce as a stand-in for Sean "seang@res" Gares.


seang@res leaves Cloud9's team 

But those results did little to erase the memories of a disappointing run of results that saw the team crash out of both ESL One Cologne and DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca in the group stage.

Over the last couple of months, seang@res had been tipped to step down from the team at the end of the year, a decision that has now been confirmed by the 27-year-old.

"My time as a player for Cloud9 has brought countless memories and experiences that I'll cherish for a lifetime," he said in a statement.

"Not only did I get an opportunity to travel the world doing something I love, but I was blessed to do it with all great people; people I'm proud to call my friends.

"Regardless of who takes my spot, I truly wish the best for the team. I'm certain that the team's persistent hard work will pay off and that Cloud9 CS:GO will be a prominent force in 2016.

"Thank you to all of my teammates, fans, and Cloud9 management for all of the love and support over the years. I will forever be grateful of this journey!"

The team will take the rest of the year to try out potential new players, with a decision due to be announced only after January 1. Until then, Cloud9 hope fans will remain "patient and steadfast alongside the squad."

"Sean Gares is one of the most charismatic figures I've ever had the pleasure of working with in e-sports," team manager Tres "stunna" Saranthus told HLTV.org.

"Sean's decision to step away from the starting lineup was his own and we support him in it 100%.

"His service record within Cloud9 and even before has been one that has left a deep impact on the game.

"To date, Sean Gares is arguably the most accomplished IGL in NA CS:GO. We are excited about the future, just as you should be too. The upcoming year is going to blow you away."

Cloud9 currently have the following four-man roster:

United States Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert
Canada Mike "shroud" Grzesiek
United States Tyler "Skadoodle" Latham
United States Ryan "freakazoid" Abadir

2015-11-25 01:09
Yeah but if any of the things going on with Nip are true why would any of the players stay on Nip. They should join a org that pays them.
2015-11-30 08:51
To be fair Nip - GTR < C9. I can see C9 doing better than Nip is currently with GTR easily. I still don't think he would do it though.

Nice laugh. You did, however, have an 11-year-old as President of the USA that invaded the wrong country, in search for "weapons of mass destruction", 14 years ago. What a joke. It's no surprise that Donald Trump has so many supporters... Sad, nonetheless.

2015-11-24 23:01
Yes against C9
2015-11-24 23:04
still doesn't mean shit. dont wanna see him in c9...
2015-11-24 23:05
I don't want to see him on C9 either because he's too good for those shitters.

GTR will never join cloud 9 or any american org, he loves his NiP gaming house in sweden. Stop being delusional. He already said in his interview before, no way he will join US teams.

2015-11-24 22:59
Why?!?!?!?!?
2015-11-24 22:58
its sad cause freak had the same kd as sgares in the past 3 months and still he gets cut+ he was calling,he will still be the coach i guess
2015-11-24 22:59
He wasnt cut, he left by his own choice and freak is an entry fragger so what do you expect his k/d to look like?
2015-11-25 01:37
Nitr0, Dupreeh, and ApeX all have positive KD ratios.
2015-11-25 02:36
that excuse is so bad, even worse than the IGL excuse
2015-11-25 06:20
Another team kicking a brilliant IGL. If they replace him with GTR (who is a worse player than Sgares) I hope their team falls off the top20 ranking. Sgares was the best c9 player in all recent tournaments, too. Fucking sad.

Pronax makes a lot of sense if he was interested. This team is going to blow without someone leading them around. If they get some fragger they will do fine vs american teams just based off skill but will hurt themselves more against euros. So do they want to beat up on NA harder or actually have a chance at cracking a top 5 world spot?

They might try stewie2k. Swag is still banned but they may have some information we dont know, the end of the year is close so... I dont think that GTR would move from EU being so relevant there, maybe the bills could convince him. Which other player do you think they could contact? Also, sgares might stay as coach\IGL so the incoming player could be a full aim no brain player.

why sgares, not freakzoid?
2015-11-24 23:53
so sean is completely out of C9 then? It didn't come off as if he was going to stay as a coach or something.
2015-11-24 23:54
This is a man who will never be duplicated again. He was a great ambassador of the game and had an immense amount of integrity. He always represented NA Counter-Strike well. Unlike Dazed or Steel, Sean will always be remembered as a legend and for being a player of great integrity. He went out with extreme class! Come back and coach these guys, they need to focus on fragging not calling!
2015-11-24 23:55

I really dont know a lot of us players, but I'm sure Swag is banned.. And I know he never will go, but I really like peter ;D Anyway, best look to next c9 line
2015-11-25 01:18

Please let the replacement be GTR or swag when he gets unbanned. Please don't let steel, moe, or dazed get near the team.
2015-11-25 00:23
Moe incoming. Moe top0 World. Moe > Moe
2015-11-25 00:33
im 99% sure none of c9 players want toxicity in their team and they highly value team chemistry. So no steel moe or dazed(well dazed isnt the worst of this bunch but still hes toxic af) i'm assuming its gonna be someone from complexity but sgares stepping down this very moment caught me suspicios that it might be close to the time when they got some inside info that swag is getting unbanned. i mean sgares isnt an asshole to dump c9 out of nowhere without backup plan - i'm sure theres something we dont know yet. I hope they add sancz or roca tho
2015-11-25 00:40
Yeah I have a feeling its Swag and his unban is coming sooner than we think. We should be hearing something soon.

2015-11-25 00:39
Well, this can mean multiple things. GTR's contract expires in the beginning of 2016 and rumours say former iBP players may get unbanned. I can see Cloud9 awaiting the confirmation about whether swag gets unbanned or not, if not, I imagine them going for GTR or a third possibility. A third possibility could be Stewie2k, if neither of the above mentioned players will/can join the team. Stewie2k has been an up and coming talent. Cloud9 has previously taken a risk with fREAKAZOID, an untested player, but proved to (arguably?) do the job. Another interesting question is, who will step in as the coach? Assuming that Cloud9 will not be looking for a pure IGL, the coach will - most likely - not be stunna, but a new guy. It could possibly be sgares taking that role. Either way, it's gonna be an exciting year of CS!
2015-11-25 00:40
Phil Jackson is rumored to do part time coaching in c9
2015-11-25 00:53
They will put Swag in the lineup if unbanned either way, Freak will go if GTR agrees as well. I love Freak, I think he's an emotionally uplifting leader and I hope he joins another team.
2015-11-25 23:41
I totally agree with you about Swag and even about Freak to a certain extend. I'm aware of the open trials of C9, but I can just imagine them specifically looking for an American, to keep the American patriotic pride going. I also considered... Relyks isn't a bad player and - as far as I remember - he's the IGL and/or caller for Enemy? Might be also be an option. I simply can't stop when writing hehe

LOOOL! GTR will never go to NA and play with noobs in a noob team and leave friends and family. Sry NA, ain´t gonna happen!
2015-11-25 00:52
is it possible to play in NA svs from sweden, I know you guys have great internet and to be serious GTR with 80 ping vs NA scene would not be that hard.
2015-11-25 01:24
Ping would for sure be a problem, so he had to move there. If he would go it´s like beckham moving to NA. IOW career is over. And i rly rly dont think gtr is there, and neither does he..
2015-11-25 02:06
that timezone thoo... most NA matches are at 1-5am in EU time
2015-11-25 07:05
You seems to forget that Fifflaren moved there with his gf, and they are both very good friends with each other. And Gtr have other friends in NA as well, so I don't think it's that weird of a move from him if they would end up moving there. And especielly since Gtr himself said in an interview just a few months ago that he had a few things left that he wanted to accomplish in CS:GO before he stepped down.. and winning a major with an NA team could surely be one of those things.
2015-11-25 03:29
But seriously C9 win major just cause they get gtr..? Don´t think so, fnatic/Nv are miles ahead. For that to happen C9 would need a bigger change.
2015-11-25 03:38
Nah if they would get Gtr in the line-up I think they would get swag in there as well, or some other player from Sweden too.
2015-11-25 03:41
This is starting to sound plausible, perhaps the new turner league is going to be huge and GTR is getting in on the action $$

2015-11-25 01:02
Btw, if ex-IBP gets somehow unbanned I think C9 will find better use for DaZeD than swag. Unless they are willing to replace someone else too.

2015-11-25 04:57
I'm thinking Pronax if he speaks english would be a perfect replacement. His rating and k/d is about 10% better than Sgares against stiffer european competition. So I think you get better fragging and same level of top-notch leading.
2015-11-25 04:59
If pronax would like to go in C9 I have no idea why he wouldnt. He is better fragger and better igl than Sg@res ever was. Though I think he doesnt want to move to NA since he never even liked bootcamping.

He said in the 20 questions thing that he actually didnt like med school and has a degree with something to do with agriculture I think.

Ah, got ya. Either way, the main point was he was not 'kicked'. Somehow people can't differentiate between that and leaving or stepping down.

It's tough to move on but unfortunately its something that eventually everyone will do. You were a great leader,player, and mind for this team. I enjoyed watching you, analyzing your play styles as well as the team. I was always pulling for you guys at majors. I wish you best of luck on the next chapter of your life. Cheers buddy!

Depends, if Volvo decides to let him play in their events. Some of the other league bans like ESEA and shit will expire for sure though, from what I know. I replied to the wrong comment LMAO

My thoughts on who will join Cloud9 in place of Sg@res will be the Danish player Anders. I have come to assume this because of the little bit of information on the Cloud9 website. Under the csgo team info, an unknown player from Niva, Fredriksborg, Denmark is in place of Sg@res.
