Skyler Weaver, known as “Relyks,” is a 26-year-old American former CS:GO player who had played for teams like eUnited, Team Singularity, and more. Since June 2020, he had been playing Valorant for Cloud9.

Cloud9 made an official statement on their official Twitter account yesterday and announced the departure of Relyks from the active roster. After a short period, Relyks explained the reason behind this decision.

According to Relyks, he informed Cloud9 that he doesn’t want to continue this project because of the burnout problems and mentioned that he has been playing games professionally for five years without any breaks. Also, Relyks said that he will focus on his mental health from now and won’t rush for any offers.

Here is the official announcement from Cloud9:

“Today we are saddened to announce that we are mutually parting ways with Relyks.

Thank you for all of the memories in the past year Skyler. Best of luck with your next move!”

Here is what Relyks said:

“I did my best & I wish the org/team well, but in the end Cloud9 & I decided to mutually part ways. I informed them I was no longer interested in continuing in this long-term project before this last open qualifier for VCT we played in.

There are numerous reasons/factors, but among them, I’ve realized that I’m definitely experiencing some burnout & my mental health has started to noticeably suffer. I went straight from playing pro CS for ~5+ years with almost no breaks into competing in VAL, especially with this crazy tournament schedule it’s no wonder.

Now as far as what’s next for me I’m not 100% sure. I’m going to be streaming & taking it a bit easy, focusing on my mental health & resting a bit. I’ll still be open to offers during this time but I’m not in any rush…”
