Cloud9 wave goodbye to 3 players and welcome back EternaLEnVy and Ace

After spending about six months trying to find a sponsor for the team he put together, Jacky “EternaLEnVy” Mao has put Fighting PandaS behind for good and is back to Cloud9.

Interestingly enough, the new Cloud9 roster features EE-sama and Jingjun “Sneyking” Wu, both former members of the unsponsored NA team that made it to a Major and two Minors this season. While Fighting PandaS will move forward under another tag and will play at the upcoming StarLadder ImbaTV Minor, Cloud9 announced the departure of Francis “FrancisLee” Lee, while also benching Rolen Andrei “Skemberlu” Ong and Cheng “vtFαded” Jia Hao.

Marcus “Ace” Hoelgaard is also joining the new C9 line-up and will take the mid role, leaving the carry role to EE. Both of them are returning players to the Cloud9 organization, but for Sneyking, this is the first time he will put on the blue-white jersey.

“We’re really glad to be welcoming EternaLEnVy and Ace back to C9, and we have no doubt Sneyking will make a tremendous impact as well. We’re all looking forward to seeing this team compete at the highest levels,” said Gaylen Malone, Cloud9 Sr. General Manager in the official announcement.

Cloud 9 current roster from potion 1 to 5:
