In late March, the 24-year-old announced that he had stepped down from the Cloud9 active roster to further contemplate his competitive career. Cloud9 then saw Stewie2k depart for SK Gaming leaving two voids to fill for the duration of the Pro League season and the upcoming DreamHack Masters Marseille tournament. However, Skadoodle helped Cloud9 through a handful of Pro League matches, alongside the recent addition of FNS, where he made an unclear Tweet earlier this week of his return. Now, the Cloud9 roster is at full strength as the team travels to Frane to participate at DreamHack Masters Maresille.

Finally wins a Major

While it was surely a team effort as every member stepped up at one point or another, Skadoodle was constantly putting his skills on full display in this series. Whether it was on the AWP or the rifle, he was doing it all for Cloud9. After making it to the grand finals of a Major after eight tries, Skadoodle saved his best performance for the best possible moment as Cloud9 became the first-ever North American team to win a Major.

Leads C9 to the semifinals
July 8, 2017
Skadoodle put up a strong 61/46 KD in Cloud9's win against Ninjas in Pyjamas on Friday at ESL Cologne.
ANALYSIS
If Cloud9 ends up going the distance in Cologne, it will be because of Skadoodle. All week long, he's been playing like a monster, and the quarterfinals were no different. While he did have a moment in Game 1 early on where he found no kills, he showed right back up in the second half to absolutely shut down NiP and push C9 to a win. He was still playing great in Game 2 even despite the loss for his team. He simply kept lighting things up, especially with the AWP, in Game 3 to find a dominant 16-6 win to move on to the semifinals.
