Cloud9 is a major North American esports organization fielding many teams in different games including Dota2, League of Legends and of course, CS: GO and Overwatch. The organization started as very small League of Legends team qualifying for the major LCS tournament for the first time. When the team’s current owner as well as the general manager, Jack Etienne decided to take over the team, Cloud9 has been able to grown over years to finally become one of the leading esports organizations always at the top.
Judging by some very recent Twitter posts from the organization, team Cloud9 now has two participating teams in the major Overwatch League since the organization decided to give a chance to South Korean runners-up team KongDoo Panthera. The complete South Korean roster including players Kim Rascal Dong-jin and Kim birding Ji-hyunk will represent the team under some new Cloud9 KongDoo banner in the upcoming Overwatch Apex in season four. It should be noted that the team in this season four is currently undefeated, so it will be very exciting to see what new Sout Korean roster can do to keep it that way.
KongDoo Panthera Displayed Great Passion and Skills in Season Three
When it comes to the season three, we have to admit that Sout Korean Overwatch roster KongDoo Panthera’s run in the season three was absolutely incredible. The team was able to display some amazing skills as well as the great passion in the finals. We believe that with Cloud9, the South Korean roster will be at home. Cloud9 CEO Jack Etienne was glad to reveal that she believes that the guys from the new team are absolutely fierce competitors, and she simply knows that they will stop at nothing to finish what they started. She also added the Cloud9 is very excited to see what is about to come.

The major esports organization, Cloud9 was announced as the London franchise holder on 10th of August. A couple of days later, Cloud9 also happily announced the acquisition of major European Overwatch team, amazing Laser Kittenz who is now called Cloud9.

The original team’s roster still appears on Cloud9’s official website with their European roster even though it has been inactive for quite some time.

When it comes to the upcoming major Overwatch League, Cloud9 didn’t specify which team will be participating. On the other hand, a recent report from popular South Korean website called Naver suggested that the team participating in the upcoming Overwatch team will be new South Korean roster Cloud9 KongDoo. The roster won’t be moving to London yet if it choose Cloud9 KongDoo. It should be noted that the first season of major Overwatch League will take place at Blizzard Arena Los Angeles.
