The dream meme team is back for 2017 with some promising new additions. Although Cloud9 performed the best of any North American team at the 2016 World Championship, they weren’t satisfied with their quick exit in the quarterfinals. Former Challenger scene standout Contractz was handed the reigns to the jungle in his rookie season. The team also acquired Ray, Apex Gaming’s former playmaking top laner.
Despite a strong split, the team once again fell to TSM in the 2017 NA LCS Spring Split finals. Heading into summer, if Cloud9's young players can hone their raw talent, the team could rise to new heights this year.
Coach: Han-gyu "Reapered" Bok
