- K1ng posted a 4-5 W/L record in his LCS stint
- Zven will debut in LCS Summer 2021 vs GG
Update June 22
Zven back in C9 LCS
After his time in the Academy roster, Zven has been reinstated in the main LCS lineup and will make his LCS Summer 2021 debut against the Golden Guardians.
K1ng will likely return to his spot in the Academy team. C9 are in the middle of a rut after coming back from MSI conditions, and the team have fallen top spots from 1st place.

Original story follows below…
C9 bench Zven ahead of LCS Summer split
The 2021 Mid-Season Showdown Champions, Cloud9, have moved Zven off the starting squad for the Summer 2021 split. Instead, the boys in blue are promoting K1ng from their Academy team onto the big stage.
Cloud9 are going to field two Australian talents who both impressed during their time at the Academy level with K1ng set to take the starting ADC role.
The 23-year-old Dane will still be in the org and fighting for the LCS spot, but for now, K1ng will hold it down in the bot lane for C9.
K1ng played a pivotal role in C9A’s domination from the Spring 2020 to Spring 2021. They took top spots in the regular season and playoffs, but just fell short at the LCS Proving Grounds 2021 against No Org.
This is a big opportunity for K1ng. It will be his LCS pro debut since leaving the OCE region in 2019.
Cloud9 LCS Summer 2021 roster:
- Top – Ibrahim ‘Fudge‘ Allami
- Jgl – Robert ‘Blaber‘ Huang
- Mid – Luka ‘Perkz‘ Perković
- Bot – Calvin ‘K1ng‘ Truong
- Sup – Philippe ‘Vulcan‘ Laflamme
