History[]

Black Ops 3[]

On December 10, 2015, Cloud9 announced their expansion into Call of Duty esports with the signing of Burnsoff, MerK, SiLLY, and Mochila. After the team failed to qualify for 2016 NA COD World League Stage 1, MerK and Burnsoff left to look for a new team. On January 26, Cloud9 announced their new team of Accuracy, SinfuL, CaLiFa, and KiLLa. They placed 17-24th at UMG South Carolina 2016 and all of the players were released following the event. Cloud9 was able to collect enough CWL Pro Points with the new roster of Havok, LlamaGod, Mochila and Happy to qualify for the 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Online Relegation Qualifier. 1st Place in that tournament sent them to the 2016 NA CWL Stage 1 Relegation. They would face relegated CLG in a seven game series to determine who would make it into the 2016 NA CWL Stage 2 Regular Season. CLG took map one but Cloud9 was able to win the next four and took the series 4-1.

After mediocre play in the first month of the stage, Assault was added to replace Mochila. The team finished 7th-8th at MLG Anaheim Open 2016 and 5th-8th at 2016 NA CWL Stage 2 Playoffs. These placings resulted in another team change. Llama and Happy leave for SiLLY and Swarley. This roster would only be intact for MLG Orlando Open 2016 as teams try to make their best possible roster for the 2016 NA CWL Championship Qualifier. Ricky, Lacefield and former world champion ACHES joined Assault. The team made it through the online qualifier and are placed into Group G with Team EnVyUs, Team Orbit ANZ and Team Vitality for the 2016 Call of Duty World League Championship. Cloud9 went 2-1 in group play and only lost to Team EnVyUs on map 5. The team defeated former team members Havok, Llama and Swarley on compLexity Gaming before losing to Elevate and dropping to the loser's bracket. They defeated HyperGames to advance to face OpTic Gaming. In one of the best series of all of Black Ops III, Cloud9 defeated OpTic Gaming in round 11 on map 5 to advance to face FAB Games eSports for top 4. Cloud9 was upset by FAB Games eSports and they finished in 5th-6th place.

Infinite Warfare[]

Cloud9 kept their roster following the release of Infinite Warfare, as fans held high expectations for the highly anticipated CWL Las Vegas 2017 tournament. Victory was in sight for the former world champion, ACHES, as Cloud9 progressed to the grand final. However, they were unable to overcome their biggest obstacle, a newly formed and determined Rise Nation, and placed 2nd, Cloud9’s best placement since their entry into Call of Duty. Despite multiple average placements in the online 2k tournaments, Cloud9 was seen as a dominant force going into CWL Atlanta 2017. This perspective quickly shifted with consecutive 17-20th placings at Atlanta and CWL Paris Open. With CWL Dallas Open serving as the roster lock for GPL Stage 1 teams, speculation arose regarding the future of the roster. These rumors were quickly debunked by ACHES, stating the roster was not the issue, and a 2nd place finish on the recent 2k tournament reassured fans of the team’s skill. At CWL Dallas Open, Cloud9 began to silence the doubters, placing second in Pool B (only dropping a series to the dominant eUnited), however, would fall in the bracket play, taking home a 9-12th placement.

Cloud9 secured enough pro points to qualify for Stage 1 of the Global Pro League. They were placed in Group Red, alongside Team EnVyUs, Splyce, and Mindfreak. Unfortunately, they severely underperformed in Group Play, finishing 4th with a 1-5 record, sending Cloud9 down to Relegation. About a month later, Ricky and Lacefield were released from the roster, which was shortly followed by an announcement stating the recruitment of Xotic and Priestahh. Their first time playing together online they took 3-4th at the MLG 2017-06-04 2K. On June 15 at the 2017 CWL GPL Relegation the newly formed roster took down Supremacy and Tainted Minds with a 6-1 map count, qualifying for the Stage 2 of the Global Pro League along with pool play for CWL Anaheim 2017. Their first major LAN together was CWL Anaheim 2017. Cloud9 fell short of the winners bracket after disappointing in pool play finishing 1-3. However, Cloud9 would go on a 5 series win streak in the losers bracket eliminating Team Allegiance, FaZe Clan, eUnited, Red Reserve EU, and Evil Geniuses before falling to reining champs Splyce. Placing 4th at their first LAN.
