In a recent interview of famous IWillDominate streamer with Cloud9, the members of the League of Legends team rich in tradition has confirmed that their squad will be no change in the season 2021. “It Good to know that there won’t be any changes next season . ” Top laner Eric ” Licorice ” Ritchie shared his feelings about C9’s decision to keep the roster. “ We all get along very well, so it’s good to know that I’ll continue playing with them next year. ”
This is a season where the emotions rise in spring and down in summer for C9 fans. With the addition of rookie Jesper “ Zven ” Svenningsen from TSM and Philippe “ Vulcan ” Laflamme from Dignitas at the beginning of the 2020 season, C9 competed and won the LCS Spring 2020 championship convincingly, but Unfortunately not being shown in an international tournament where the MSI 2020 was canceled due to the COVID-19 epidemic.
In the summer phase, C9 continued to show destructive power in the early group stage. However, C9’s style is still similar to Spring, so in the post-group stage, they were caught by the opponents and repeatedly suffered unfortunate failures. C9’s downward streak extends to the Playoff round, where they lost to both FlyQuest and TSM, thereby failing to make it to the World Championship for the first time in 7 years.
However, the team management will still trust the current members: Licorice , Blaber , Nisqy , Zven with support from Vulcan , and will not make any transfers anytime soon. Many experts believe that the C9 players are well qualified, but the team’s coaching staff needs to research and come up with more strategies over the course of a season, to avoid being caught too much like the second half of the return leg to the LCS Summer 2020.
