Cloud9 Challenger is a North American Challenger team. It is not to be confused with Cloud9 Tempest.
Cloud9 Challenger was announced as a new team being built by parent organization Cloud9 in August 2015, to be built around former Cloud9 starting jungler Meteos, after he was replaced on the main roster by Hai. The team held open tryouts, and in October, KEITHMCBRIEF was announced as their AD carry. Starting in early November 2015, C9C participated in the HTC Ascension tournament. After making it through the group stage, they were eliminated in the quarterfinals and disbanded.
