Cloud 9 caught up quickly and dominated in the Spring Split with a solid scoreline of 17-1 in the regular season. Heading further with domination, they were crowned as Champions against at Spring Finals against FlyQuest. This victory was something C9 was able to bag for themselves for the first time in a wide span of six years.

Meanwhile, ahead to Summer Split Cloud9’s performance was a mixed bag with starting the series with a 9-0 but losing amply in the second half.

The bottom line, Despite C9, secured the second place and had bagged in the playoff Bye, they lost to FlyQuest with a score of 3-1 which immediately dropped them to the loser’s bracket where they fought against EG to secure a 3-0 victory but that wasn't enough as they were on the edge. This is where TSM officially finished Cloud9’s season and cancelled their opportunity to bag in a ticket to the Worlds.
