Cloud9 is a North American esports organization currently competing in League of Legends. C9 currently competes under the name Cloud9 G2A, in representation of their sponsor G2A.

During the off-season, the Quantic Gaming organization fell into financial distress and shut down operations, leaving the League of Legends team without a sponsor once again. Competing under the name "Team NomNom" and then Cloud9, Nientonsoh, Hai, Yazuki, Wild Turtle and LemonNation secured a spot in the Season 3 North American Offline Qualifier for the League of Legends Championship Series. However, Cloud9 was knocked out of the tournament in the group stage after losing to Azure Gaming and future LCS team Team MRN.
Initially, Nientonsoh said that Cloud9 would disband in light of the loss. The team later decided to stay together, although Nientonsoh and Yazuki did leave, causing a large roster change. Hai shifted from jungle to mid, and the team tried out new junglers and top laners in online competitions.
On April 1st, the Cloud9 roster of Hai, LemonNation, Meteos, and Balls was picked up by Quantic Gaming. However, just a few weeks later the roster would once again become Cloud9 with previous TSM manager Jack Etienne becoming their manager and owner of the team. In the Summer Promotion Qualifier, Cloud9 went 5-0 to earn a spot in the LCS Summer Split, beating Team Astral Poke 2-0, and compLexity 3-0. Cloud9 possesses the longest win streak in LCS history (13 games), the most victories in an LCS season split (25 games), and won first place in the Summer Split. Throughout the NA LCS Summer Playoffs, they were able to win every single one of their games/sets, first against Team Dignitas and then the grand finals against TSM. Cloud9 took home $50,000 USD as well a first round bye at the Season 3 World Championship. They finished their season 3 LCS and playoffs with a 30-3 total, the highest in LCS history and with a 91% win rate.
With high hopes, C9 went straight into the S3 Championship quarterfinals for being the North American champions. Their first international match as a team was against the top European seed, Fnatic. In a formidable set of games, Cloud9 lost 1-2, being the last North American team to be eliminated and ending up in eighth place.
At the first international pre-season tournament, IEM Cologne in November, Cloud9 received a bye into the second round and competed against Gambit Gaming of Russia. Gambit defeated Cloud9 2-0, marking their second immediate exit from an international tournament.
In December 2013, Cloud9 joined four other North American LCS teams at the Battle of the Atlantic, facing European champions Fnatic for the second time. With dominating performances by mid laner Hai, Cloud9 took the series 2-0, resulting in an overall North American win at the tournament and $10,000 USD for the team.
Cloud9 won the spring split of the LCS once again, and qualifying for the All Star event. However, prior to the event, Hai's lung collapsed, hospitalizing him and requiring him to use a respirator, and the team had to play with a substitute. After C9 requested Link as a temporary replacement, Counter Logic Gaming readily agreed to a two-month emergency loan deal that would cover the time in between splits, including All-Stars. Cloud9 went 3-1 in the group stage, losing only to SK Telecom T1 K, but in the bracket they were eliminated in the first round by OMG, losing 2-0.
In the summer season, despite placing first in the round robin, they took second place overall, losing to Team SoloMid in the finals 2-3. The second-place finish qualified them for the 2014 Season World Championship, where they were drawn into Group D along with NaJin White Shield, Alliance, and KaBuM! e-Sports. Cloud9 went 4-2 in the group, drawing with NaJin Shield for first place but losing the tiebreaker game. They were eliminated from the tournament in the bracket stage, falling 3-1 to Samsung Blue.
Due to their IEM San Jose victory, Cloud9 qualified for IEM Katowice in March. They lost their only two games, first to GE Tigers and then to yoe Flash Wolves, and finished in 7th/8th place. Domestically, they underperformed at the start of the season, and were in 8th place at the end of the second week of the spring LCS split. However, they improved over the course of the season, ending with a second-place finish behind Team SoloMid and a playoff bye; after beating Team Liquid 3-2, Cloud9 lost to TSM 1-3 in the finals and finished the split overall in second place.
Soon after the spring finals, Hai announced his retirement from professional play, citing his wrist injuries and the fact that his support carry playstyle was not viable anymore as reasons for his retirement; however, he would remain with the Cloud9 organization as their Chief Gaming Officer. After tryouts including Cloud9 Tempest mid laner Yusui and the recently-unbanned European solo queue star Incarnati0n, the team settled on Incarnati0n as their new mid laner for the Summer Split. The team performed poorly for the first five weeks of the split and replaced Meteos with Hai going into the sixth week.
With Hai back on the team, Cloud 9's record improved from 3-7 to 6-12 by the end of the split, and they finished in 7th place after a tie-breaker victory against Team 8, narrowly avoiding relegations and retaining their 70 Championship Points, though they did not qualify for playoffs. In the Regional Finals Gauntlet, Cloud9 reverse-swept both Gravity Gaming and Team Impulse before beating Team Liquid 3-1 in the finals. Their fourteen games played over the course of three days gave them North America's third seed to the 2015 Season World Championship, Cloud9's third-consecutive Worlds.
Considered an underdog at Worlds, Cloud9 were placed into Group B along with Fnatic, ahq, and Invictus Gaming and expected to place last. Instead, they surprised with an undefeated 3-0 first week, with Hai suddenly performing well on Lee Sin and Balls on Darius; Incarnati0n also introduced Veigar as a pick in their first game against ahq. In the second week, Cloud9 needed only one win to advance to the quarterfinals but were unable to find it, losing four games in a row including a tiebreaker loss to ahq. They placed third in their group, ahead of only Invictus Gaming.
After their Worlds run, Cloud9 announced the retirement of LemonNation and his move to a staff role; they also opened tryouts for jungler and support, with Hai to play whichever role was not filled via a tryout. They ended up adding two new players - former Gravity support Bunny FuFuu and Team Impulse jungler Rush - with Hai to split time with Bunny in the support role. Rush debuted with the team at IEM Cologne, where they were eliminated in the first round by H2k.
Cloud9 started the spring season with Hai and Bunny FuFuu alternating games, but after two losses with Bunny and two wins with Hai, they committed to starting Hai fulltime and rose to a 67% winrate, with a third-place seed in the playoffs. However, despite a seeding advantage, the team lost to TSM in the first round. After the end of the split, Cloud9 recreated its Challenger team and shuffled rosters between the two teams, setting up for the summer split with Impact, Meteos, Jensen, Sneaky, and Bunny FuFuu as its LCS roster.. During the offseason, the new team went to bootcamp in South Korea. It was during this period when the team also acquired Smoothie and Reapered.
During the first half of the NALCS Summer Season, the team was performing in the middle of the pack and often switched between Bunny FuFuu and Smoothie for support. However, beginning the second half of the summer split, the team synergy started to improve after settling with Smoothie as their starting support. They performed well enough to qualify for the NALCS Summer Playoffs by placing 3rd place in the regular season with a 12-6 record behind Immortals and Team SoloMid. The team easily beat Team EnVyUs 3:1 to advance to the semi-finals against Immortals. To the surprise of many, Cloud9 defeated Immortals in a close 3:2 series to advance to the finals against Team SoloMid. Although the team took the first match, they were unable to take anymore games off of TSM. Still, the team earned enough Championship points to earn a bye into the semi-finals of the 2016 Regional Qualifiers. There, the team had no trouble facing against Team EnVyUs and Immortals again, dropping only 1 match in the finals to become the third seed NA representative to the 2016 World Championship.
At Worlds, Cloud9 was grouped with SK Telecom T1, I May, and Flash Wolves. While SK Telecom T1 was the clear favorite to come out first in the group stage, there were some debate as to who would come out second between the Flash Wolves and Cloud9. In the end, Cloud9 was the only NA team to advance to the quarterfinals where they faced Samsung Galaxy from Group D. Against the Korean team, the team was unable to win a single match, thus ending their run at Worlds and the fans' hope of an NA team making to the semi-finals.
On December 9, 2016 Cloud 9 announced they had moved Juan Arturo "Contractz" Garcia into the starting jungler position and signed Jeon "Ray" Ji-won as a substitute top laner. During the off- season, the Cloud 9 Challenger roster, including Balls, LemonNation, Hai, and Altec was purchased by Wes Edens, owner of the Milwaukee Bucks, and rebranded as team FlyQuest. 
With little change to the roster except for Contractz, there was high anticipation for the team to do well in the spring split, and the team did not disappoint. The team started off with a solid win against Team SoloMid in the opening match of the season. From there on out the team maintained their strong performance in the regular season with their new jungler Contractz whose aggressive play style eventually won him the Rookie of the Split award.
That's not to say though that all is well with Cloud9 during this period. For one, Impact's performance was uneven and the team has had to switch between him and Ray, depending whether or not the team needs to play a more defensive or aggressive play style for the match at hand. Still towards the end split, the team placed second to win a bye into the semi final of the playoffs.
The team first faced Phoenix1 and easily advanced to the final with a 3:0 to face Team SoloMid again. In an exciting 5 game series, Cloud9 went toe to toe with Team SoloMid off of the strong performance of Jensen. Unfortunately, during a critical team fight around the elder dragon, Team SoloMid successfully eliminated Jensen's Ekko which consequently led to the entire team's demise. Once again the team fell short of their championship goal second year in a row to Team SoloMid
With no changes to the roster, the team set their sight once again for a championship run in the summer playoffs. However, unlike their run in the spring season, the team's overall performance was more inconsistent, having fallen to teams like Immortals, Counter Logic Gaming, and Team SoloMid. The team even tied with Team EnVyUs in scores, a team they've never had trouble defeating in the past.
In week 5 of the summer season, the team was invited to participate in the inaugural 2017 Rift Rivals/Blue Rift with Team SoloMid and Phoenix1. At the conclusion of the group stage, Cloud9 went 3-3 only and failed to make it out of the group stage.
At the end of the summer split, the team placed 4th in the league. Though their placement qualify them for the playoffs, it also means that they have to fight their way to the top from the quarterfinals by first playing against Team Dignitas. Much to the surprise of everyone like in the 2015 spring playoff, Cloud9 lost to Team Dignitas by only taking one win off of the 5 game series.
Though disappointing, the team still had enough circuit points to qualify for the 2017 NA Regional Finals and only had to face Counter Logic Gaming in the finals. This time around, Cloud9 did not disappoint and in a 3:1 fashion, they secure the 3rd seed spot to represent North America at the 2017 World Championship.
