“Due to some unforeseen circumstances, including both personal and business matters, it is best for my career development and for the organization that I move on to explore other options and opportunities that have been presented to me,” he wrote. “In particular, an alleged contractual dispute with a few former players has surfaced that now requires my full and immediate attention to ensure that the situation is properly and justly resolved. I will not currently comment any further on this alleged matter as I still have hope that this unfortunate situation will be resolved amicably and expeditiously without the need for additional recourse.”
The announcement comes at a interesting time, one day after Cloud9 signed the roster of Korean Overwatch roster Kongdoo Panthera. Oddly enough, he spoke out against signing Korean rosters for Overwatch League in a tweet that was circulated Thursday after Cloud9 did just that.
Alicus was the founder of European Overwatch team Laser Kittenz, which was acquired by Cloud9 last month. Alicus departs the organization a little more than a month after joining it.
