Cloud9 signs with runi and moose

Recently, the well-known group Cloud9 verified reports about changes to the roster by revealing that Dylan “runi” Cade and Kaleb “moose” Jayne had joined the starting lineup. Wippie and Jakee left the team when they were unable to qualify for Masters Madrid due to their defeat at VCT 2024: Americas Kickoff. The Cloud9 squad plans to compete going forward, even after a difficult start to the year. They will shortly take part in qualifying for the next Masters, which will take place in Shanghai.

Along with the 2 players are three extremely talented superstars: Erick “Xeppaa” Bach, a longtime member of C9, and Francis “OXY” Hoang, a rising star prospect. Anthony “Vanity” Malaspina, a seasoned in-game captain with extensive experience from teams like Version1, Shopify Rebellion, and his stint as a CS:GO pro, will lead the lineup. When it comes to their VALORANT lineup, Cloud9 has a history of making snap decisions. For instance, the squad made significant changes in 2023 when it let go of superstar Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker after just five months, and then it let go of Vanity in the days that followed.

As part of a rebuilding effort ahead of the 2023 Americas League, C9 signed runi with Jake “jakee” Anderson, who had almost missed out on the NA Challengers the previous year. Even though Cloud9 advanced to the playoffs, they lost their opening game to the Evil Geniuses, who would later win. The team defeated Leviatán to move on to the next round of the lower bracket, where they faced NRG Esports in a final attempt to win tickets to Masters: Tokyo. Regretfully, C9 was demoted to the Americas LCQ after a devastating map 3 overtime loss. Sentinels was sent to the lower bracket by the team, which had one last chance to win the championship that year, but they were overtaken by KRÜ Esports’ incredible run. In a cruel twist of events, a reverse sweep destroyed any chance of crowning a North American LCQ winner, and the squad that sent C9 home from the LCQ turned out to be none other than Leviatán.

In 2023, a new plot awaited moose; the well-known Sentinel player would have to battle his way across North America’s Challengers League with Shopify Rebellion, the previous core of Luminosity, in order to earn a spot in the Americas Ascension. Even though they nearly made it to the Challengers playoffs, Moose and his teammates were ousted from contention after two quick losses against G2 Esports and M80, the eventual playoff kings. Later, once Shopify and Moist Moguls merged, players from both teams were parted, with the intention of assembling a competitive team for the upcoming Challengers series. After receiving unfavorable treatment, Moose moved to Turtle Troop, a different Challengers team, and eventually decided to join YFP Gaming. Before Moose left the squad to take a position in franchising, the newly assembled group of players easily won a berth at Challengers after cruising through the open qualifications.

On April 6, Cloud9’s new roster will play their first game in the Stage 1 Americas League against opponents Leviatán from Latin America.
