The Departure of Jaccob “Yay” Whiteaker from Cloud9: Community Reacts and Discusses

Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker’s departure from Cloud9 has been made public and officially acknowledged by the company. Yay received a lot of support from the professional Valorant community once he made the announcement that he was a free agent.

By making the announcement that he and the team have parted ways, Cloud9 gave its stamp of approval to the numerous rumors that surrounded their star Valorant player yay. As the news broke, not only did Yay issue his own statement announcing that he was now a free agent, but also many of his fellow players and fans took to the internet to express their support for him.

The community of Valorant discusses Cloud9’s decision to drop yay

Austin “crashes” Roberts and Pujan “FNS” Mehta are two of the many former teammates of yay’s that responded to his post with thoughtful remarks. Many of yay’s other former teammates from his time spent on OpTic Gaming also commented on his post.

Crashers yelled at the victim, “They did you filthy, head up brotha.” Other professionals, such as Erick “aspas” Santos of LOUD and Byung-chul “BuZz” Yu of DRX, have also extended their warmest wishes to the world-class player.

Others decided to show their unhappiness with the decision by commenting on Cloud9’s own statement, in which they accused the team of either not being entirely upfront with the move itself or the esports landscape in general.

“You don’t put the best player in the world from the previous season on the bench because of role concerns, and you most certainly don’t Dump them totally and let them become unrestricted free agents. Also, in reaction to Cloud9’s comments, the caster for Valorant, Arten ‘Ballatw’ Esa, stated that someone “really really screwed up” here, “Someone really truly dropped the ball and fouled up here.”

Jessica ‘Jess’ Bolden, another analyst at Valorant, also offered her thoughts on the matter, situating the new development within the broader framework of the contraction that has been taking place in the esports business.

“All I can say is that esports is a living hell. Nobody ever makes logically sound decisions. “It’s been a grueling year full of people passing up incredible opportunities to work with instrumental people,” said Jess. Cloud9 will attempt to replace yay during the mid-season transfer window, and the organization may also consider making further roster adjustments soon.
