Cloud9 Bids Farewell to Rocket League Roster After Just 3 Months

8. July 2024 by Valentin Pasetti

In a surprising turn of events, Cloud9 has announced their decision to part ways with their Rocket League roster. This North American esports organization, renowned for its competitive teams across various titles, has decided to let go of their Rocket League lineup after only three months of signing them.

A Promising Start

Cloud9 signed their Rocket League roster in April this year, creating a buzz among fans who were eager to see the team’s potential in action. The signing was met with high expectations, and many anticipated a strong performance from the new roster.

Disappointing Results

However, the reality did not meet the expectations. The team struggled to achieve significant success, failing to qualify for multiple leagues through open qualifiers.

Their performance was below par in key tournaments, finishing 4th in the Frost Esports Polar League #3 and a disappointing 9-11th in the NA Regional qualifier. These poor results played a crucial role in Cloud9’s decision to drop the roster.

Official Statement from Cloud9

Cloud9 has expressed their ongoing commitment to Rocket League and reassured fans that they will continue to compete in the esport. The organization is expected to announce a new roster soon.

We are committed to competing in Rocket League and will have more roster information soon.
