HenryG revealed as Cloud9 General Manager, kassad to coach new lineup

The duo will be in charge of building Cloud9's new CS:GO team after the organization announced its decision to phase out their current South African-American lineup.

The move was revealed in Dexerto's interview with Henry "⁠HenryG⁠" Greer on the day after Cloud9 announced that the organization is looking to find a new home for its current lineup around Johnny "⁠JT⁠" Theodosiou and begin rebuilding the entire CS:GO division.

The Brit, who announced his retirement from commentary on Friday, and esteemed coach Aleksandar "⁠kassad⁠" Trifunović, who had been on the market for four months after parting ways with 100 Thieves in late April, are the first two pieces of the new project.

HenryG and kassad to build Cloud9's new CS:GO team

Speaking about his new role and his aspirations, HenryG has revealed that he has "absolute control" of the lineup and its direction as General Manager and shared his ambitions to create a world-class unit capable of challenging for trophies alongside his Serbian teammate.

"C9 have entrusted me with their entire CS:GO dynasty and, honestly, I think that's one of the boldest moves any org has made in a long time," he told Dexerto. "I'm aware there is a certain level of expectation going forward now. Failure simply isn't an option."

Though he is the de facto boss of the project, the 32-year-old stressed that kassad will also have a key role in building the roster as its future coach. The duo has held talks with a number of prospective players, but none have been locked into the lineup for the time being.

Alex will probably lead FPX‘s new roster as FPX owns a spot at flashpoint and Alex said he would prefer an Organisation that is Part of flashpoint (because this means less traveling)

Yeah, agreed, but C9 definitely has that money to spare xD
2020-09-07 20:14
Alex is so overrated, overpriced, and has a shit attitude. He's not a good player, and Vitality are a lot better now that he's gone. Should tell you everything if he couldn't use those players to win something. c9 would be best to find another IGL with a lower price tag that can frag and has a better attitude.

can u pls explain your point with being a part of flashpoint and travelling? no b8, i'm just wondering
2020-09-08 15:30

alex left vitality because he does not want to travel that much anymore. flashpoint and esl event schedules overlap so its not possible to attend both. esl events are all over the world while flashpoint events are always in the same location.

Ah yes lets forget the fact that he's been a pro and he was one of the casters that knew the most about the game
2020-09-07 21:00
the job isn't managing the company its making decisions for the CSGO roster which he is quite qualified to do. You should really learn what these jobs entale before commenting but then again you're just another insecure dweeb who's jealous of everyone else's opportunities.

HenryG has great knowledge about the game, and I'm sure he is going to do very well as a General Manager. I think they could find better coach than kassad, but overall I think he isn't bad. Maybe he will get better in the future.

I'm 50/50 on disagreeing and agreeing with you. The former managers that C9 CSGO has are straight trash. The only good one is Danan before he left for Golden Guardians (LOL team), and it's been downhill from there.

2020-09-07 21:20
So he is basically saying that another failed attemp to make a roster is not an option. But if they try to build one, it might very well be so. And i doubt they can buy whole new roster which would be like top10 team. So this is interesting, i am not expecting much. At best some NA/EU mix which might be good (but more likely not). Let's see....

Will be interesting to see if Kassad can lure Jkaem back to EU or convince Jks to leave AZR. Dexter isn’t really an option atm since he can’t leave Australia anyway. Don’t really know if Kassad would want to have a team with toxic guys like Smooya or ALEX even if Henry would want a UK C9.

It was nice having Boston while it lasted but this is the end of the road for C9. He will put that org 20 feet under.

If you think Henry was a good caster you're delusional. He put about 10% effort into paying attention to the game. He went off topic talking about trash no one cares about way too much. His overreaction was so disingenuous. And to top it all off he allegedly assaulted a girl. Believe that or don't if you want but it seems like it's at least partially true.
2020-09-08 22:53
3 replies
proven false and calling me delusional isn't an argument. He was clearly one of the most knowledgable and I dont know if you realize this (you probably don't because you seem socially inept) but part of being a caster is being relatable. Just because he didn't jam every second into talking about the positioning of the CTs vs an eco doesn't mean he wasnt aware of what was happening. Try again hater.
2020-09-08 23:46

Not proven false. He was not that knowledgeable considering he had to constantly ask what just happened because he wasn't paying attention. I don't know if you realize this (probably because you're very socially inept and can't read either) but I didn't say you have to jam every second into talking about positioning. But you should spend a majority of the time talking about things related to the game at hand or at least CSGO in general. He would talk about what he had for breakfast or what he did at his hotel for no damn reason.

Depends on money they want to spend for their csgo team. This can be mixed with buyouts from teams like 100t (jks, jkaem) and also some free agents like nitr0, oskar/guardian. Buyout from Sprout's dycha would be also possible I think. There are several options. Hope they manage to get actual tier 1 lineup. Lookin forward. Jks Jkaem Dycha Nitr0 Oskar Can be top10 for sure
