OverDrive: Perfecto and Hobbit depart Cloud9

Esports athletes Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy and Abay "HObbit" Khassenov are no longer part of Cloud9. Insider Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov told about this via his Twitter account.

The source did not disclose the reasons for these roster changes. Notably, earlier this week the team's leader Denis "electroNic" Sharipov also parted ways with Cloud9 to continue career in Virtus.pro.

HObbit has represented Cloud9 since April 2022, when the North American club acquired the entire Gambit roster. In turn, Perfecto just joined the team together with electroNic in July of last year.

Note that Cloud9 previously withdrew from ESL Pro League Season 19. According to the official statement, the reason for the withdrawal from the prestigious tournament was changes in the lineup.

Should the OverDrive's information be officially confirmed, there are only two players left in Cloud9:

 Sergey "⁠Ax1Le⁠" Rykhtorov
Kirill "⁠Boombl4" Mikhaylov

Konstantin "⁠groove" Pikiner (coach)
