The former commentator has now chosen to take a sabbatical while he reassesses his options for the future
Henry “HenryG” Greer has disclosed that he is stepping down from his position as the general manager of Cloud9’s CS:GO team. The announcement was made following the organisation’s decision to put the CS:GO division on hold after a stretch of poor results and difficulties surrounding the coronavirus pandemic.
The former commentator was tasked to assemble a team from scratch in September 2020, acquiring the services of Alex “ALEX” McMeekin, Özgür “woxic” Eker, William “mezii” Merriman, and later, Patrick “es3tag” Hansen from and Ricky “floppy” Kemery.
Following just three months with the organisation, woxic was benched citing “unreliable high ping” and a “compromising time zone” as the reason. HenryG opted to sign the former Chaos player Erick “Xeppaa” Bach as his replacement hoping es3tag or ALEX could wield the AWP with success, but the results continued to suffer.
HenryG has now chosen to take a sabbatical while he reassesses his options for the future.
“Today’s the day that @Cloud9 and myself will be parting ways. Thanks to @JackEtienne for the opportunity and the players for their hard work and time,” HenryG said in a statement on Twitter. “While the space is in this strange transition period, I have decided to take a sabbatical and enjoy some of the normality that life has to offer. It’s certainly been a while.
“I will be back eventually when the right opportunity arises.”
