Skadoodle takes a break from Competitive CSGO.

Home » Esports » Skadoodle takes a break from Competitive CSGO.

Former Major winner, Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham has announced a break from the competitive CS: GO circuit. The player has been in Cloud9 since April 2015. He did see a period of inactivity when Cloud9 decided to go for a different set of players. However, he has been crucial to the formation and the operations of the Cloud9 CS: GO rosters.

Cloud9 mentioned that the AWPer will remain on the team till a replacement fifth player is found. Currently, Cloud9 is on the lookout for a new player to represent the team.

I am taking a break from competitive CS: GO, I would like to thank the fans and Cloud9 for their support these past years and I wish the CS: GO, team, the best of luck.


Players interested in applying for and potentially joining the team can reach out to the Team Manager Jonathan Tran. The official announcements list his email address ( [email protected]) as well.

A Legend for North American Counter-Strike


Skadoodle is a legend in every sense of the word when it comes to North American Counter-Strike. He was a part of the famous 2015 Cloud9 roster under Sean Gares. He was instrumental in bringing Cloud9 to the forefront of the International scene. It was a time when Cloud9 was regularly having good results and was considered one of the best teams in the world.

But Skadoodle’s attitude is what earned him the respect and the love of fellow players. He was one of the calmest and composed players yet full of energy for the team. One of the best AWPers in 2015, Skadoodle has remained ( and still is ) a part of the Cloud9 organisation. Even when he is not a part of the lineup, his experience and teaching come in handy to shape the next generation of players.

I could talk about what Skadoodle has meant to Cloud9 for years and it still wouldn’t be enough. He is the embodiment of North American Counterstrike and his break is beyond well-deserved. We’re grateful to have him in the Cloud9 family and look forward to whatever comes next.

— Jack Etienne, Cloud9 CEO & Owner.

We are truly saddened by his sudden announcement, but it was an eventuality that was always coming. Over the past few months, despite winning the Eleague Boston Major, Cloud9 has depreciated in form and performance. The team has lost crucial members to MiBr and does not have similar results anymore.

We had heard rumours of Skadoodle’s disinterest in playing at a competitive level for several months. This might have played a crucial part in his decision to step down from the competitive circuit in CS: GO.

Cloud9 recently secured a $50 million Series B investment. While some of this money will go into building a training facility in Los Angeles, the rest will go into the player development and the organisation’s growth.
