As the title states Hai "Hai" Lam will be stepping down as the Mid Laner and Shot Caller for the North American powerhouse Cloud9. He has been under some scrutiny for a while now, due to his support carry play style and it would appear the saga has finally come to a close.
Hai has struggled with a wrist injury for some time which has impeded his training, while the rest of the team have supported as best they can, however this could only be maintained for so long. With the changes in the games meta is was only a matter of time before the limited mid player would fall steadily further behind his counterparts in teams like TSM, Team Liquid and the remaining top tier NA teams.
Fortunately Hai will not be leaving the organisation, instead he will become the Chief Gaming officer for Cloud9 and take on several responsibilities from team developments to managing existing partnerships and building new ones.
For the full article and a statement from Hai himself head over to the C9 website here:
There you will find a detailed report with the reasons for the change. We wish Hai all the best in his new role and wait with much excitement for the announcement of his replacement. As always we will be on hand to deliver you the news as and when it comes to light.
Until then - GL and HF Hai ;)
