Cloud9 have officially parted ways with one of their members, Jordan ‘Zellsis’ Montemurro, just days after IEM Katowice 2019 ended. Cloud9 turned a lot of heads at this point last year as they became the first North American CS:GO team to ever win a CS:GO Major at the ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018 championship. However, since that high point, Cloud9 have gone through a year-long transition period. In their most recent change, the team has announced that they’re letting go of Zellsis, in addition to Robin ‘Flusha’ Rönnquist, and have since brought back Maikil ‘Golden’ Selim.Cloud9 are now one man short after letting of both Zellsis and Flusha. As for Zellsis, there are rumors swirling that he might just return to his former squad, Swole Patrol, following his trial period with Cloud9.Zellsis was brought in to Cloud9 in late 2018 as a band-aid fix to a team that was desperately in need of some stability. Unfortunately, Zellsis was not the permanent solution that Cloud9 needed. The 20-year-old professional CS:GO player had this to say in his departure:“I still have a lot to learn as a player, but it was an honor to spend my first major with such an incredible group of players. Thank you to everyone at Cloud9 for giving me this opportunity and I plan on coming back bigger and better than ever.”
