SingSing parts ways with Cloud9

posted by Vekus,
Just a couple of hours ago, world Cloud9 announced the departure of their mid player and community favourite nl Weh Sing 'SingSing' Yuen. Despite their 5th to 6th place at this years International, it looks like Weh wants to move on. This could be an indicator, that the recently formed Team Tinker might stay together even after the i-League qualifiers.

Many might have speculated about it, after they saw their beloved SingSing playing for world Team Tinker in the ongoing i-League qualifiers, but now it is official: Weh Sing will part ways with Cloud9, despite their good performance over the course of 2014.
The owner of the team, Jack Etienne, shows himself fond of working with Sing and wishes him best of luck for the future:

Today we’re announcing that SingSing will be leaving Cloud9 to play with another team. It was an absolute pleasure working with him and I’ll miss having him as part of our organization. He is a rare talent that not only is extremely skilled at the game but also a fantastic entertainer who is able to connect with the fans in a way that few players ever do. Doubtless he will continue to perform at a high level and I’m looking forward to seeing him at future events.

Jack Etienne, Cloud9 Team Owner

Not parting ways on bad terms, Weh speaks highly about Cloud9 and his fans:

It has been one of the most exciting and fun periods in my life... Thanks to Cloud9 and my former team mates! I wish you good luck for the next season of DotA 2 and I will be forward looking to play against you as well. My new team is already in the works, but like many teams, only time and experience will tell it's success.

A big shoutout to all the people who have followed me through my esports journey all the way and of course the ones who have tagged along halfway through. And once again, thank you Cloud9 for taking care of me during my stay on the team!


Current Cloud9 Roster:

ca Jacky 'EternalEnvy' Mao
ro Pittner 'bone7' Armand
us Kurtis 'Aui_2000' Ling
se Johan 'pieliedie' Aström

Upon now it is unclear who will replace SingSing and if the roles on Cloud9 will stay the same, but we will do our best to keep you informed.
