So we’re halfway through the LCS season, we have played 15 games out of the 28 total needed. Our record is 13-2 at the moment and we only lost games to CLG and Vulcun. I hope we can continue our dominance through out the rest of the split.
I’ve noticed that a lot of people think we just copy the Koreans or play the overpowered champions but that’s not necessarily true. In one aspect, we do learn from the Koreans. We look at what they consider strong and try adapt their champions or strategy into our own so we can evolve it and make it better for our team. We also pick champions we consider strong for OUR strategy/gameplay. Different champions provide different things to a team, and the ones we pick fit that strategy perfectly. Every team considers different champions overpowered or strong and that’s what makes each team unique. For example, Link likes playing standard AP mids like Orianna/Karthus and he considers those champions “OP/Strong” where as I consider bruisers/assassins strong. Each champion brings different things to a team and some champions will be strong for some teams and weak for others depending on their play style.
We have another 13 games to go and then playoffs, I’m a little bit nervous/unsure of what is going to happen the rest of the split but I’m hoping for the best or at the very least we do our best so we aren’t disappointed with ourselves.
Keep cheering on for us and supporting us, it only makes us play better and we appreciate all the fans we have! Thanks!
I would also like to thank our sponsors. Thank you iBUYPOWER, Cooler Master, Kingston HyperX, Crunchyroll, LoL-Class, Astro Gaming!
So we go play at MLG Anaheim this weekend, I'm not really sure what to expect as far as results but every MLG has always been a good time for me. Hopefully we'll have a few more fans this time than the last few times haha. We got a few signatures per MLG event and like 1 or 2 photos, maybe it will change since we are a "bit" more popular :p.
As far as results versus CLG, Vulcan and Coast? I'm hoping for a 3-0 but at the very least a 2-1, I wouldn't want to go negative but it might happen sometime! I imagine I'd be quite sad if we did that though so let's hope it doesn't happen hehe ^_^.
If you're coming to MLG Anaheim, don't be afraid to come up and ask for a picture/signature! We'll be happy to do either as it is something we all enjoy! I'm hoping the venue will be as cool as it was last year, I don't really know what we ate last time around. Maybe we'll get better food this time around, I love good food!
Anyway that's pretty much it for this blog, expect cool things from us in games and come say hi to us! Thanks for reading :)
Last week Cloud9 made an immediate impact on the North America scene going 5-0 and showing everyone they are not to be taken lightly. C9 showed many traits that make up a top contender in the League of Legends competitive scene as they were able to win convincingly in several games while also showing the ability to handle pressure and alter their strategies on the fly.
This week the team will enjoy a shorter week of play as they have just two games to play against the last two NA teams they have yet to play. Thursday June 20th Cloud 9 kicks off week 2 of the NA LCS against Counter Logic Gaming, a team still adjusting to roster changes in their first meeting of the season. Cloud 9 will not only try to continue their success from week 1, but also show CLG first hand and the rest of the world that week 1 was not a fluke. Then on Friday June 21st C9 faces Vulcun TechBargains in another first meeting of the season. Vulcun coming off a successful week 1 along with a great end to the spring will try and continue their surge among the top NA teams and attempt to put a blemish on Cloud 9's perfect record thus far.
Tune in to watch Cloud 9 along with the rest of the North America teams for week 2 of the Summer League Championship Series on Thursday, June 20th starting at 1pm PST. The action continues on Friday, June 21st starting at 3pm PST.
