Cloud9 Tempest is a North American Challenger team, which was first formed in January 2014, with Cloud9 acquiring the roster of The Walking Zed to form a sister team. It later disbanded, and was then reformed in January 2015.


2015 Season[edit]

After about ten days of open tryouts involving over thirty players, Cloud9 formed a new Challenger team in January 2015 with a roster including Solo, Hard, Yusui, LOD, and Stixxay in January 2015. Under the name C9 Charlies Angels, they placed fifth in the ranked 5's ladder leading up to the NACS Spring 2015 qualifier. Following Stixxay's move to CLG.Black, Fade joined the team, replacing Stixxay as starting support. The team defeated Roar and then Team Confound to qualify for the season. However, prior to the start of the season, it was revealed that the team had used a ringer in their matches against Team Confound. As a result, Cloud9 Tempest were disqualified from participating in the NACS, and Team Confound took their place.[1]

After the disqualification, Fade left the team; however, the other four members remained with the organization, and at the end of March all five members of the roster who had initially been banned from competitive play were re-approved for competitive play starting on May 11.[2]

Now unbanned, Cloud9 Tempest participated in the NACS Summer Qualifier, with nearly the same roster as they had competed with in the spring qualifier, except that LOD moved to AD carry, and Sheep joined. After their first two rounds, Yusui was temporarily banned for four weeks for purchasing botted accounts, and Jintae was used as a substitute for the finals against CLG Black, which the team won, successfully qualifying for the Summer Season.

Prior to Yusui's reinstatement, kt Smurf played in the first week of the season, and from then on the team used their full roster of Solo, Hard, Yusui, LOD, and Sheep. The team finished with a 5-5 record and in fourth place. In the playoffs, they also finished fourth, after losses to Renegades and Team Imagine. They missed out on the Summer Promotion Tournament but retained an automatic seed into the NACS Spring 2016 Season.

After the conclusion of their 2015 season run, Cloud9 announced open tryouts for a new Challenger team, which would be built around Meteos.[3] However, after Meteos left, Cloud9 dropped the team and sold their NACS spot for Spring 2016 to Ember.
