After seven months as the Cloud9 CS:GO team manager, Henry “HenryG” Greer has officially left the organization.
His departure comes after the Cloud9 organization announced on March 26th that they will be transfer-listing their roster and leaving CS:GO competition for the time being.
“Today is the day that Cloud9 and I will part ways,” HenryG wrote in a tweet on Monday evening. “Thank you to Jack Etienne for the opportunity and to the players for their dedication and time. It’s a shame how things turned out with so many mitigating factors but so many positive memories.”
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.
It’s truly a shame how things panned out with a lot of mitigating circumstances but plenty of positive memories, too.

HenryG will join Cloud9 in September 2020. During his time with the company, his ambition was to create a super-team capable of dominating the CS:GO scene. The squad, on the other hand, failed to live up to their full potential.
Their relegation during the group stage of the ESL Pro League Season 13 playoffs appeared to be the final straw for the company, which decided to terminate HengryG’s squad.
HenryG was a commentator for a variety of S-Tier Counter-Strike events before joining Cloud9 as their team manager. Prior to that, he had an 8-year professional esports career as a player in both CS:GO and Counter-Strike: Source.
In a subsequent Tweet, HengryG discussed his future plans, saying, “I’ve decided to take a sabbatical and enjoy some of the normalcy that life has to offer while the room is in this odd transition time. It has been a long time. I’ll return when the right opportunity presents itself. Be kind to one another.”
