HenryG & Kassad to Reconstruct Cloud9 Counter-Strike
Former analyst Henry “HenryG” Greer and coach Aleksandar “kassad” Trifunović will lead Cloud9’s efforts to rebuild its Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster, Cloud9 announced Monday.
HenryG, who retired from casting Friday, will sign up with Cloud9 as the CS: GO group’s basic manager. Kassad, meanwhile, will coach the gamers more straight. The duo have yet to complete offers with brand-new players, but HenryG set the bar high for them in an interview with Dexerto.
” C9 have entrusted me with their whole CS: GO dynasty and, truthfully, I think that’s one of the boldest moves any org has actually made in a very long time,” he said. “The Cloud9 brand name speaks for itself, it is one of the outright foundations of the esports landscape. I’m mindful there is a specific level of expectation moving forward now. Failure just isn’t an option.”
HenryG and kassad praised Cloud9’s obvious commitment to the building process. Kassad, who had been without a group since leaving 100 Burglars in April, stated this brand-new job reinvigorated his waning enthusiasm for the video game.
” After simply a couple of conversations with Cloud9 and Henry, I understood that we see things the exact same method,” he said. “He is super enthusiastic, focused and energetic about this and it really lit the stimulate that I thought I had lot in the last couple of months.”
Cloud9 dissolved its old roster, put together at the start of 2020, on Sunday to make method for HenryG and kassad’s brand-new vision. The company has failed to live up to the eminence of its brand in CS: GO competitors since its win at the 2018 Boston Major.
