The team’s coach, Matthew “mCe” Elmore, has played a crucial role in their success. Under his leadership, Cloud9 has been able to develop a winning strategy. This strategy has proved to be successful against some of the top teams in the tournament.

Cloud9’s recent win against Sentinels was a testament to their strength as a team. The team won the series 2-0, with a 15-round differential score. Cloud9 dominated on the defensive side of Fracture. They won 11 out of 12 rounds, while Sentinels struggled to find their footing.

Cloud9‘s path to the playoffs is now clear. They are likely to compete with other top six squads from the Regular Season. The team’s roster changes saw the departure of key players Jaccob ‘Yay’ Whiteaker and Anthony “Vanity” Malaspina. This caused some concern among fans. However, the team’s recent performances have shown that the new players, Dylan “runi” Cade and Jake “jakee” Anderson, are more than capable of filling their shoes.

Cloud9’s dominance in the tournament has not gone unnoticed, and they currently sit at the top of the VCT Americas standings. With three more weeks remaining in the tournament, Cloud9 is several steps ahead of other North American rosters, coming from a 5-1 record. 100 Thieves and NRG Esports are fighting for second place with 3-3 records. Meanwhile, Sentinels and Evil Geniuses are struggling at the bottom of the standings with 2-4 records.

The North American Valorant community is eagerly anticipating the playoffs, where Cloud9 will undoubtedly be one of the top contenders for the championship. With their impressive performance so far, the team has proven that they have what it takes to come out on top in one of the most competitive Valorant tournaments in the world.
