Cloud 9 down to four players as Gnimsh departs
After parting ways with TidesofTime and Hafu earlier this year, C9’s roster shrinks even more as captain and manager Marcin “Gnimsh” Filipowicz has reportedly left the team.
A long-time caster, player and content creator, Gnimsh is one of the founding members of Cloud 9’s Hearthstone division. Originally a member of the practice group of DogeHouse, Gnimsh put on the C9 blue in June 2014 when the team acquired DH alongside StrifeCro, Hafu and Kolento. Although with time he gradually focused more on casting, as a C9 player he finished third in Numericable M-House Cup 4 and took second at the next edition of the tournament.
Reports, however, indicate that Gnimsh is no longer with Cloud 9 and has parted ways with the organization this month. At press time, he’s not listed as a member of the Hearthstone team on Cloud 9’s official site, neither is he on the competitors page of the ongoing SeatStory Cup 4.
Although an official statement from the team is still missing, the silent departure of Gnimsh is very reminiscent to that of Rumay “Hafu” Wang and Drew “TidesofTime” Biessener a couple of weeks ago, when both players were taken down from the official page in similar fashion.
This leaves Cloud 9’s roster down to four players, including banner bearer Aleksandr “Kolento” Malsh, Cong “StrifeCro” Shu, Jan “Ekop” Palys and Harry “Massan” Cheong.
