Shroud has been a part of the Cloud9 roster since several years. However in the recent roster shuffle he along with Nothing have been removed from the roster. This is a new chapter in the Cloud9 roster and one which will not see two players who have been integral to the performance of the team over the past few years.
Apparently it was Shroud who approached Jack Etienne with his desire to approach streaming as a full time career. Shroud was one of the biggest streamers before his move to Cloud9. Obviously he has not been as influential a player on Cloud9 as many expected him to be.
