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. Read more...
