Aui_2000 and pieliedie confirm being kicked from C9
After the rosters for Cloud 9 and Evil Geniuses had been revealed by the DAC invites, it was only a matter of time until either party would comment on the situation. Now both pieliedie and Aui_2000 have officially confirmed that they were kicked from their team in Cloud 9.
Former support player and captain of Cloud 9 has Johan 'pieliedie' Aström has now confirmed that he is indeed not part of the roster anymore and that he did not leave intentionally but was kicked. Following him, his former support partner Kurtis 'Aui_2000' Ling confirmed via twitter that he as well was booted from the team.
Well since pie said he was kicked, I was kicked from the c9 playing roster too. I will not be talking about it until official announcements.— Aui 2000 (@Aui_2000) January 13, 2015
No reason has been stated yet, as they are both apparently still under contract with the team and will have to wait for an official announcement from Cloud 9.
In the supposedly great Western reshuffle, Cloud 9 has found two new support players for their upcoming TI5 season, namely Johan 'BigDaddy-N0tail' Sundstein and Rasmus 'MiSeRy-' Filipsen. Both were playing with the team in the DAC qualifiers, while Aui_2000 was listed for Evil Geniuses' roster and attended Las Vegas with them to compete in the D2L LAN finals.
As for pieliedie, the Swede is an active member of MeePwn'd, a mix of European players, namely H4nn1, Simbaaa, w33ha and Xcalibur.
