Cloud9 started in League of Legends as an unknown team who exploded onto the scene by immediately becoming the top placing North American League of Legends team in the World Championship every year since 2013.
Cloud9 has since grown into a multi-title organization of 8 different teams and games. The Cloud9 CS:GO team made history with the first North American championship win at any international LAN event in a decade by winning the 2016 ESL Pro League Finals, the crowning event of the largest online league in the scene. The Cloud9 Vainglory team has taken many trophies as well, including the VG8 Spring 2017 Unified Championship. The Cloud9 Smash Bros Melee player Mang0 has taken home multiple EVO championship wins and has defined the scene with his large personality and talent.
Today, Cloud9 boasts one of the largest team streaming networks in the world while remaining one of the most recognizable and premier brands in esports and gaming, having been voted 2015 Most Valuable Esports Team at SXSW and 2016 Best Esports Team at the Game Awards. They've recently acquired the Overwatch League London spot, as well as investment from a group with many notable people including Reddit founder Alexis Ohanion, Tesla board directors, Joe Montana, and many others.
