Cloud9 eliminated from Americas Minor closed qualifier

Cloud9 are out of the running in the Americas Minor NA closed qualifier after placing last at the tournament following losses to New Identity and The Quest.

As the third-highest-ranked side after NRG and FURIA, Cloud9 (No. 23) had been among the favorites to advance to the Americas Minor from the closed qualifier, which has six spots at the main event on offer.

Their hopes of a top-six placing first came under threat at the hands of New Identity, featuring names such as Skyler "Relyks" Weaver and Will "dazzLe" Loafman, who took down Timothy "autimatic" Ta's side in the upper bracket.

Cloud9 will miss the StarLadder Major

At that point, Cloud9 needed to win three series in a row in the lower bracket to qualify, and they fell at the first hurdle, with The Quest dealing them the last blow with a 2-0 victory in the first round.

That means the North American organization will miss their first Major since the ELEAGUE Major in 2017. Cloud9 had initially been eligible for a spot in Berlin's New Challengers Stage after placing 9th-11th at IEM Katowice, but they conceded their slot due to losing the three-man majority following the departures of Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey, Robin "flusha" Rönnquist, and Jordan "Zellsis" Montemurro.

The core of this team previously almost beat C9 in a best of 3 before, so I'm not all that surprised, even though the game was long ago. hltv.org/matches/2325927/cloud9-vs-black..
2019-06-14 00:15
C9 also lost to Eunited in the Chicago Quals with relykS so there’s a lot of talent on that roster

AWPer for Peeker's Advantage, can be insane at times but is inconsistent, if he's under the right leadership he could be developed into top talent imo. Also kinda carried against them in the past: hltv.org/matches/2325927/cloud9-vs-black..

2019-06-13 23:20
i actually wish for this to happen...
2019-06-13 23:53
I don't think it's possible since Zellsis already plays for Lazarus(signed and contracted as well) at the closed qual. I'm not sure if he can join the lineup regardless they qualify or not to the major
2019-06-13 23:58
I don’t think the roster lock date has come actually
2019-06-14 00:21
any player that plays in the major/minor circuit becomes locked to 1 team the moment he/she plays the first match, even in the qualifiers.
2019-06-14 03:48
okay, mb, roster lock must just be for new players then didn't know that, guess i should have deduced that tho from the fact sk couldnt play with boltz in that one major a year ago

Daps coaching would do him and the young guns some good though, ts just that Daps isn't good enough on the server anymore so he should step back to coaching again

s0m is young and has a lot of room for improvement. I don't know how old Floppy is, but I've never seen him as an upcoming talent. Golden has had several chances with different iterations of this lineup. I had faith in him at the beginning, but the team never really did anything after he came back from his break. I'd like to see steel but he's banned from majors so rip. Edit: Just saw Floppy is 19. Still young, but I don't have enough information on him to rate him so I'd give him a chance on the lineup.

They played scrimmy CS. Do they have individuals who can perform well? Is that gonna win you games against the best teams in the fucking world? No, its not. So, unless they gonna turn things complete fucking 180 around, cloud9 are not gonna make top8 bro. So just go back to being a cloud9 fanboy and spam all your stupid bullshit in the twitch chat, cause you gotta open your fucking eyes, you have to watch the game for what it is and stop being a...- having bias, this is what people need to stop doing in the whole world, stop being biased to things because you are a part of a fucking tribe or a fan club, start actually thinking. If you wanna be objective, if you wanna make decisions in life, you need to use your fucking eyes and use your brain.

C9- does need an overhaul. To those brainless asshats calling for disband, go back to your Legos. You bring nothing to the conversation, so fall off. Automatic is core. Rush respectfully has fallen off. Vice needs a bit of time, you were a shit player too, but you got better. With ghost disbanding, I could hope for some players. Maybe a buyout too. C9- has money. Audi Steel Wardell Vice Rush Rush stay only because steel can make the best of anyone. Vice can really develop, I saw it in rouge. Wardell is a solid AWP. Steel is legendary, if it doesn't work, daps could definitely fill-in till younger talents come to the scene.
2019-06-14 03:31

It's even stronger now than it was in 2013/14/ and 15. It's still the best directly aim-based FPS competitive game. Advertisement revenue, player salaries, prize money, etc, it's all 1000% better than in the startup CSGO and even 1.6 years. Yet, CS has persevered for two decades as the top FPS game. If you knew the history of CS1.6, major orgs in the 2000s used to drop complete rosters quite a bit. They'd go from American rosters to Dane rosters to mix rosters to a German roster, etc. It's pretty popular in CSGO - given it's a team-based FPS game with very key roles to fulfill. SK Gaming, Titans, Dignitas, Fnatic, Evil Geniuses, etc. EG, for example, had 3 Canadian rosters, an American roster, and even supported a mix roster of Canadians, Americans, and Lurppis - a Finn player. Their final roster (before disbanding due to being forced out by other orgs - due to EG having ties with Twitch at the time and other orgs calling it a conflict of interest), was very successful from 2008-11. This too, shall pass. C9 will bounce back - eventually. They just won a major 17 months ago. Yet, they competed for 3.5 years prior. They'll compete for 3.5 years after. They just, literally, have nothing viable to work with on this roster. When they had n0thing, shroud, sean, ska, etc. Did you not see how well those guys meshed? They were best friends and competed together. C9 is the largest and wealthiest esports org in the world. They have high salaries and are backed by a very involved owner. Since they had such great success in the scene, they will surely continue with it and perhaps drop the whole roster and then move forward. They literally just piled a bunch of decent players together for this roster, who probably aren't even close outside the server. I don't see the same bromancing that existed before. If they start seeing this more as just work and less passion involved, they won't be as successful. I'm a firm believer in persistently strong lineups. The high turnover rate in teams disappoints me. It makes this seem a lot less professional. This is one binding factor that made VP so successful in the time they had. Their roster had been together for many years and then when it couldn't function any longer, they disbanded. Vitality is doing it right. ZywOo could get any team he sets hit eyes on. He remains loyal to a functional roster and they have had a VERY successful 2019, so far. Keeping the roster consistent all year has been a major motivator. Even having a British lad in an all-French roster is a bit of an enigma in terms of the French scene - which has historically been quite regional. I'm not sure how well Alex speaks French, but, whatever they do works for them right now. I could only see them keeping autimatic and rebuilding at this point.
2019-06-14 09:12

99% of their money once came from sponsorships. Now, they have big-time investment buy-ins that provide significant wealth - but in addition to sponsorship. Orgs were invested in a time when the money was dogshit. They maintain the sponsorships. There's way more sponsorship now than in the past. Cloud9's valuation is like $300 million - the most of any esports org. They're doing alright. Not going anywhere.
