Cloud9 has revealed that they've parted ways with their coach Soham 'Valens' Chowdhury by mutual decision, who joined the team in 2017 and guided them to success that year with various competition wins.

The organisation thanks Valens for his services, especially recruiting and vetting players for the side, and here's what Valens himself had to say regarding the announcement:

"I plan to keep pushing the envelope when it comes to esports analytics and hope to be a part of the innumerable number of folks dedicated to turning this industry into a sustainable, ethical, and exciting one. Thank you, Cloud9 fans and family, for all the love you've shown me. We've made history and I fully expect all of our teams will continue to do so."

"Thank you for all the time and effort you have put into Cloud9 CS:GO over the past few years. It's been a pleasure learning from you about the game and I wish you the best of luck in whatever comes next," adds Jonathan Tran, Cloud9 CS:GO General Manager.

Where should he go next?
