History

Black Ops 3

On December 10th, 2015, Cloud 9 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 26th, Cloud 9 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.

Cloud 9 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 Cloud 9 was able to win the next four and took the series 4-1.

Infinite Warfare

Going into Infinite Warfare, there were not too many eyes on Cloud 9. With the roster of Aches, Assault, Lacefield, and Ricky, no one really thought they had a chance. But boy did they prove us wrong! At the first event of the year, MLG Vegas 2016, the team placed 2nd losing to Rise Nation in the Grand Finals. The next event they would be CWL/2017 Season/Atlanta Open. Cloud 9 had an unimpressive 17th-20th placement right after placing 2nd at MLG Vegas 2016. Less than a week later, the squad would be attending the annual Esports World Convention event, but once again, they exit the tournament with a 17th-20th placement. On March 19th, Aches and co would be in Dallas, Texas for the MLG Dallas open tournament. Although it was not what they were looking for, Cloud 9 improved on their previous placements by placing 9th-12th at the event.
