Cloud9 release kioShiMa
The French player leaves Cloud9 less than six months into his adventure overseas, having been recruited in November after acting as a stand-in for the team at BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen.
A two-time Major champion, kioShiMa averaged a 1.06 rating at the six LAN events that he attended with Cloud9, helping the team to reach the final at the ELEAGUE CS:GO Invitational and to finish 9th-11th at the IEM Katowice Major.
"I'm looking forward to what's next for me in my career and I wish Cloud9 the best."
With this decision, Cloud9 no longer have the majority of the line-up with which they attended the Major after previously parting ways with Robin "flusha" Rönnquist and Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro. The latter had initially been listed as a team coach for the event but was moved into the line-up as Maikil "Golden" Selim could not take part in the tournament due to medical reasons.
