The news comes a month after Dexerto's Jarek "DeKay" Lewis reported that the organization were in talks with several Cloud9 members, with autimatic and daps being the primary targets. Gen.G were also reportedly interested in Bulgarian Georgi "SHiPZ" Grigorov, but that move has seemingly not come to fruition.
Gen.G's roster is now:
- Timothy "autimatic" Ta
- Kenneth "koosta" Suen
- Damian "daps" Steele
- Chris "Elmapuddy" Tebbit (Coach)
The announcement obviously leaves the team short two players, but Dust2.us have been informed that at least one additional player has already been signed by the organization.
As for Cloud9, the organization put out a statement saying that they will retain Oscar "mixwell" Cañellas and coach James "JamezIRL" Macaulay, but made no mention of benched player Tyson "TenZ" Ngo or stand-in Yassine "Subroza" Taofik.
