The North American League of Legends Champion Series is nearly halfway over, and Cloud9 are looking to secure the top spot. They’re currently undefeated with seven wins over other top North American teams such as Team Solo Mid and Dignitas. Cloud9 are currently dominating the NA LCS and are showing no signs of slowing down.
The current Cloud9 roster is outstandingly impressive with some of the best players in North America.
Eric “Licorice” Ritchie is an incredibly consistent top laner that is known for playing Aatrox and Gangplank. He rarely dies to enemy ganks, and is often able to carry in teamfights.
Robert “Blaber” Huang’s talent as a jungler is often overshadowed by how great Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen was when he was on Cloud9. He is currently proving himself as a player that is capable of facing up against some of the best junglers in North America.
Yasin “Nisqy” Dinçer continues to dominate the mid lane and the team often relies on him to carry through tough situations.
Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen is looking much more comfortable on the Cloud9 roster than when he was playing on TSM. He is showing that he can consistently farm up and scale to become the primary carry for the team.
Philippe “Vulcan” Laflamme has excellent mechanics and great bottom lane synergy with Zven. It will be interesting to see how their synergy progresses further into the split.
Cloud9’s head coach, Bok “Reapered” Han-gyu, is one of the driving forces of the team’s success. The drafting phase has been going smooth for Cloud9 so far this split. They’re focusing on capitalizing on the strongest aspects of the current metagame and setting themselves up well before their games even begin. The team is motivated to stay at the top of the NA LCS, and it will exciting to see how this roster performs on an international stage. As the players continue to build upon the synergies that they have, they will continue to become stronger.
Cloud9 are poised to be the team to beat for the spring split, and there are plenty more difficult games ahead of them. Look out for their upcoming games against Evil Geniuses and Immortals to see if Cloud9’s streak will end.
