If we have to mention the most impressive Western League of Legends team in the last transfer window, we need to mention Cloud9. This organization called “Kuu Van” has had a series of quality contracts when buying Summit (from Liiv SANDBOX) and Berserker (from T1’s youth team). In addition, pushing a promising Top laner like Fudge down to Mid lane also surprised many people.
Cloud9’s lineup for the 2022 season
In addition to the players, Cloud9 also attracted a lot of attention when recruiting a character of the “very talented and disabled” character, LS, to the position of head coach in the 2022 season. Even right after joining C9, the coach. This Korean League of Legends team for many years immediately disparaged the Eastern teams. Specifically, in the AMA session after joining C9, LS said that Phuong Dong teams were extremely weak in thinking related issues.
The fact that Cloud9 recruited LS as head coach also made this team get a lot of attention
This makes LS quickly become a very hated character for the Eastern League of Legends community, especially LCK fans. Remember that before joining C9, LS was the content creator of T1, an oriental team. Therefore, this act of “stabbing in the back” of LS is very difficult to accept. Someone even sarcastically said that LS would never be a good coach with such a personality.
Indeed, before he could refute his criticisms, Cloud9’s new coach LS received a series of “bad news”. Specifically, in a recent stream, LS announced that more than half of the main lineup and the coach himself could not join the rest of C9’s players in the US until the end of February. The reason is because LS and players Summit, Berserker, Winsome are still stuck in Korea because of visa problems.
LS recently confirmed that all players and staff members currently in Korea will be stuck here until the end of February.
The worrying thing here is that the above members will not be able to play for Cloud9 in the kick-off tournament for the new season, the LCS 2022 Lock-in. Of course, this is a non-achievement tournament, but playing together early will help the process of finding the right style of play for the team much faster.
Moreover, in the worst case scenario, LS and players Summit, Berserker, and Winsome might be stuck in Korea for a longer time. Therefore, they can completely miss the first phase of LCS Spring 2022 and lose the advantage to opponents like Team SoloMid, Team Liquid, 100 Thieves. Needless to say, LS’ “retribution” is coming very soon and it will probably prevent this guy from having a successful coaching career at C9.
LS seems to be having a hard time leading Cloud9
