Korean powerhouse Cloud9 look to prove themselves in the upcoming North Division

Posted by Rainbow 6 2020-06-17 in North Division Stage 1 2020

One of the longest-running teams in APAC, Cloud9 through its many iterations have always played a part in the regional ecosystem. The organisation having invested into the Korean scene over a year ago in April 2019, has probably expected more results from the leading team in their country, but that peak has yet to be achieved. After a significant period trying represent themselves and not having much support behind them, the players will be keen to prove their calibre as they head into the North Division with eyes set on a definite top 6.

The roster impressed audiences at the Six Invitational 2019, pushing eventual winners G2 Esports to overtime on the first map before giving them a strong challenge on the second as well — all while still working part time. With the former APAC league structure somewhat limiting for consistent, top-tier opportunities, the Koreans will certainly be eager to test their skills against the top teams in Asia week in and week out as the APAC North Division kicks off in under a week.
