The 25-year-old "will be taking a break from the competitive circuit" as soon as a new fifth player is announced, Cloud9 added.
This is the second time that Skadoodle has decided to leave Cloud9's active roster this year. In March, he stepped down from the team, only to return two weeks later, after Jake "Stewie2K" Yip had been transferred to SK.
A former member of Curse and iBUYPOWER, Skadoodle signed for Cloud9 in April 2015 and most notably helped the team to first-place finishes at the ESL Pro League Season 4 Finals and at ELEAGUE Major Boston 2018.
He was named the 20th best player in the world in 2015 but struggled to reach the same heights in the following years, averaging a 1.06 rating on LAN in 2016 and a 1.02 rating in both 2017 and 2018.
“I am taking a break from competitive CS:GO," the player wrote. "I would like to thank the fans and Cloud9 for their support these past years and I wish the CS:GO team the best of luck.”
The announcement leaves Cloud9 on the lookout for a new player ahead of their next LAN event, BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen, which will be held from November 2-3. The North American team currently sit in fifth place in the ESL Pro League, with three victories in six games, while in ECS they are currently second, with a 7-3 record.
Cloud9 currently have:
