It's true! As a long time @Cloud9 fan from my LoL days, joining the Hurricane and the C9 family has been a surreal experience.— Joshua 'Elbion' Tuffs (@ElbionTosscoble) August 13, 2018
The team has been a joy to work with, but we've got an insane amount of work to do moving forward. Excited for LAN next season ;) https://t.co/0Dw45rhnFe
Elbion announced his departure from the team back in May. EnVision would eventually release their Overwatch team about a month later and later become part of Team Envy Team Envy Contenders NA Rank #2 .
In a welcoming announcement on the Cloud9 website, more insight was provided regarding Elbion's addition to the team:
Cloud9 and the British Hurricane are thrilled to announce the signing of Joshua Elbion Tuffs to the Hurricane coaching staff, serving in the role of analyst!
Elbion previously served on the coaching staff for Envision Esports, helping lead the team to a 13-7 regular season record in Overwatch Contenders 2018 Season 1: North America, along with a trip to the semifinals on their way to a 3rd/4th place finish. Prior to that, he was an Overwatch feature writer for Dot Esports, and we’re excited that he’s bringing his extensive knowledge of the game to the Hurricane!
"Elbion is going to be a great addition to the team and I know the players and coaching staff have already welcomed him to the family. Looking forward to seeing the Hurricane in action again soon!" — Jack Etienne, Cloud9 CEO & Owner
