Soham Chowdhury, known as “valens” is a 3o-year-old coach who had been working for Cloud9 since 2017. On 16 October, Cloud9 announced that they part ways with valens.

valens said:

“It has been a pleasure working alongside some of the brightest and hardest-working minds in esports. Thanks to Jack, Paullie, and Dan for welcoming me with open arms, and seeing the benefit of getting a little more scientific in our approach to esports. Coaching was actually supposed to be  a temporary position for me but it turned into something greater. We won the major, we had roster issues, we lost out at the minor qualifiers, and we started again from scratch”

He added:

“I plan to keep pushing the envelope when it comes to esports analytics and hope to be a part of the innumerable number of folks dedicated to turning this industry into a sustainable, ethical, and exciting one. Thank you, Cloud9 fans and family, for all the love you’ve shown me. We’ve made history and I fully expect all of our teams will continue to do so.”

valens lastly said:

“Shout outs to Tim, Tarik, Stewie, Rush, Skadoodle, Flusha, Golden, David, Jonathan and Danan. You guys are the real MVPs. If you are interested in learning more about the work I did at Cloud9 or have any business inquiries, feel free to reach out via Twitter DM”
