Cloud9 is one of the biggest esports organizations in the world. The formerly All-American team had an amazing start to 2018 winning the ELEAGUE Boston Major. This was the first time a North American team won the prestigious Major. The great result in Boston was followed by some poor results which has resulted in a rebuilding phase that is still ongoing. The addition of European players flusha and kioShiMa seemed to bring a fresh breath of air to the team. The fifth spot is currently manned by the young talent Zellsis who is on trial for the team.

Before his blockbuster move to Cloud9, RUSH had a successful spell in Optic Gaming where they overcame Astralis to win Eleague Season 2 and come second at ECS. RUSH is a very aggressive rifler often used as the entry fragger for Cloud9 and has generally transformed into a star player.
Replacing an American legend is a French one. After being without a team for several months, kioShiMa has proved himself as a solid member of the legendary organization. kioShiMa is a support player and an anchor capable of locking down the most important choke points on any map.
Zellsis is currently on trial for Cloud9. The 20-year talent comes from a short career of playing professional Counter-Strike at a mid-tier level, but is now given the chance of a lifetime in the American powerhouse Cloud9. Time will show what the young gun has in store for us.
Few names strike fear into the hearts of their enemies, flusha is one. The best performing player throughout the first 3 years of Majors, where he helped his former team, fnatic, to three Major championships. More than any other team and on of only three players in the world to achieve that. Even after such success, a roster change lead to him taking a back seat-role in the team so he could lead them instead, and what followed was 6 straight victories. A player who has been there, and done it all, a Legend.
