The organisation made a comeback to Dota 2 after a break of close to three years back in later January 2020. However, the roster belonging to North America, it was initially registered in Southeast Region and played ESL One Los Angeles qualifiers from the SEA. Failing to make a dent in their first assessment they immediately returned to their roots, North America.

the final iteration had its own vintage players Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao, Johan “pieliedie” Astrom, Rasmus “MISERY” Filipsen to claim back their lost prestige. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen.

The roster also had Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard who started his noticeable run into the Dota scenario with Cloud9 accompanied by the last piece of the puzzle Jingjun “Sneyking” Wu who flew along with EternaLEnVy from Fighting Pandas.

Cloud9 competed in four tournaments since its reincarnation. Although, they failed to show any impressive results in any of those and at the recently concluded BTS Pro Series Americas, the squad had a 0-10 losing streak but somehow managed to work it out at the end of group stage games, barely making it to playoffs. Nevertheless, the blue and white colours of C9 were let down in the first round of the lower bracket itself and that it the farthest the team has made in any of the events.

“Cloud9 is announcing today our departure from the competitive DOTA 2 circuit. Effective immediately, all members of our roster are available to be signed by other organizations,” added the organization on their official website.

Cloud9 Team Manager, Ysabel Noukky Müller stated: “It was great working with these players and I want to thank them for being professional throughout and buying into our vision and company values. We’re confident that success will follow them as their careers progress.”
