The Trouble with Hai

Is it Time for Cloud9's Mid to Move On?

by Patrick Garren

Since the acquisition of Zachary “Sneaky” Scuderi from Quantic Gaming on May 23rd 2013, Cloud9 have had the exact same roster. They didn't actually "acquire" Sneaky from Quantic either - they WERE Quantic. Sponsorship issues led to their reformation as Cloud9. Founder and Team Captain, mid-lander Hai “Hai” Lam, chose the name Cloud9 because he believed that professional gaming should be about being happy. But Cloud 9 is the last place they were at the beginning of the 2015 Spring Split, when they saw themselves in a spot they hadn't seen since they made it into the LCS: last place.

Evil Geniuses Roll with Temp Roster due to Visa Issues

Krepo, Yellowpete and Snoopeh will miss this weekend's LCS matches due to visa issues. RobertXlee, Executionerken and Thinkcard will be replacing them in the meantime. But I think it will be cool to see Robert in the LCS...even if it's just for the weekend. :P 

Robert's 'OH' Face!

EU LCS W9D1 Thurs, Mar. 20th

Today's Matches: 

Gambit Gaming vs Alliance
Supa Hot Crew vs Millenium
ROCCAT vs Fnatic
Copenhagen Wolves vs SK Gaming

Plus EU Challenger Spring 2 Semifinal
Departed vs Never G1ve Up

No one is doing all that badly in the EU...which I believe is a credit to both the teams and the game. Anything can happen! Nothing is set in stone! At least..until we reach worlds.. :P 

Also, I must say great job by Gambit, Fnatic and Millenium at the IEM Championship games. You guys all made us very proud!  <3  

$30k has to still taste plenty sweet!

"What do YOU think of my swagger?"

NA LCS W7D2 Sun, March 2

Today's Matches:

1. Cloud 9 HyperX vs Team SoloMid
2. Evil Geniuses vs Dignitas
3. XDG vs Counter Logic Gaming
4. Curse vs Team Coast

The C9 / TSM game is definitely the headliner...but I'm also curious to see if XDG and Coast can continue their winning streaks. You's possible XDG could end this day NOT in last place...because they are now getting SheePR! Will CLG get fleeced? :P

After ewe...

EU Spring Split W5D1 Thur, February 13

Today's Matches: 

1. SK Gaming vs Fnatic 
2. Copenhagen Wolves vs Supa Hot Crew
3. ROCCAT vs Alliance
4. Gambit Gaming vs Millenium

Millenium, Alliance and SK will once again look to play road blocks while trying to bolster their own positions in a super tight race for fourth place. Upsets haven't been uncommon this season, and a loss to any one of the tied top three teams could knock them two places back. Who'll taste Victory? Who'll taste Defeat?  Who'll bay at the moon if they win? It's anyone's guess in the EU LCS!

(except for the baying at the moon thing...that's definitely these guys...)

1. Counter Logic Gaming vs Evil Geniuses

Coming off a strong win vs Dignitas yesterday, can Curse crack TSM's kevlar-coated armor?

Who do YOU Support?

Can they top the competition?

EU Spring Split W4D1 Thur, February 6

Today's Matches: 

1. Fnatic vs Alliance
2. Millenium vs Roccat
3. Copenhagen Wolves vs Gambit Gaming
4. Supa Hot Crew vs Millenium

Today's series starts off with three very uneven match-ups. Maybe we'll see some struggling teams finally make progress, or...maybe we'll see the EU leaders widen their already strong leads. After an impressive showing last weekend, curious to see if Supa Hot Crew can keep their momentum going against Millenum. 

If anyone is going to pull off an upset today, who do you think it will be? 

Does Alliance have a chance?
