Cloud9 is a North American eSports organisation currently fielding teams in Hearthstone, League of Legends, Call of Duty, Super Smash Bros. Melee, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, and Dota 2. Cloud9 made its debut into the Dota 2 arena by signing the former Speed Gaming team in February 2014.[1]

We are excited to have the opportunity to work with these skilled players and hope to help them grow as individuals. Please help us welcome C9 HyperX DotA 2!
