Cloud9 LCS “super team” in peril as historic loss streak shocks fans

Cloud9 super team in peril LCS

Cloud9 has historically been one of the strongest teams in the LCS, and their team this year was a frontrunner in all the 2024 power rankings. However, they’ve now lost four matches in a row and have to bounce back if they want to keep their season alive.

With Cloud9 holding on to some of their best players in Fudge, Blaber, and Berserker while bringing in Vulcan and jojopyun to fill in the gaps, anything short of first place would be a disappointment for the org.

Now that TSM’s out of the LCS, they’re the legacy org for North American League of Legends, and they’ve got the most championship titles out of any org currently in the LCS by a wide margin.

However, despite signing a team that many thought couldn’t fail, their current roster hasn’t been able to keep it together. If things don’t change soon, it’ll be another case of a “super team” too big to fail doing just that.

Cloud9 kicks off LCS 2024 with uncharacteristic loss streak

Even in their worst form, Cloud9 have been a top of the table LCS team for the vast majority of their time in the LCS. And they’ve been in the LCS for a long time.

However, their 2024 roster hasn’t exactly gotten off to a strong start. Though they started off with three wins, they’ve followed it up with four losses and have quickly descended through the LCS ranks. They’ve got plenty of time to turn things around, but it’s not a strong start.

At least the players and social media team are having fun with it instead of being all doom and gloom about the current state of the team, but things need to turn around fast if Cloud9 wants to stay on top of the League.

Here’s the thing, though: This team has had some strong moments even in those losses.

Even when C9 was extremely far behind against FlyQuest, they were still looking for plays. jojopyun clearly has that MVP gene in him still, and he’s got the power to carry teamfights. Though, unfortunately, C9 has been having issues with getting out-macroed and out-rotated, ultimately putting them at too much of a deficit to show their true strengths.

This has resulted in Blaber’s biggest regular season loss streak since he’s been with the org, not the kind of history Blaber was looking to make.

There’s still a long season ahead, but Cloud9 looks far from the best season in the region right now. They’ve got a lot of work to do if they want to earn another domestic title this year.
