| Team History
Juan "Contractz" Garcia is from Redwood City, California, in the United States. He started playing League of Legends in early season 2. Contractz started his competitive career in October 2015 with Zenith eSports in the HTC Ascension tournament, where his team finished 5th-6th. He left the team after the tournament and joined new Challenger team Ember in December.
Ember finished second in the spring season, with a 3-1-1 record. Due to Contractz's ineligibility to play in the promotion tournament (as he wouldn't turn 17 until August 2016), Ember signed Santorin as a substitute starting with the NACS playoffs. They lost in the first round to Team Dragon Knights. After Ember ceased operations almost two weeks later, all players but Contractz became free agents. Two months later, he announced his free agency.
He joined Cloud9 Challenger in June. The team was very dominant in the 2017 NA CS Summer Season and finished 1st in the regular split. They won the playoffs with a 3-2 win over Team Liquid Academy. In the Summer Promotion Tournament, C9C defeated NRG Esports 3-0 and qualified for the NA LCS. Contractz however left the team in December of 2016 and joined the main Cloud9 team.
The 2017 Spring Season of the NA LCS started off hot for Contractz and C9. The team was dominant and in 1st place throughout most of the split. However their performance took a dip later on and they finished 2nd with a 14-4 record right behind TSM. Despite this Contractz's individual performance was consistent throughout the split. In the playoffs it was a similar story as Cloud9 made it to the finals but lost 2-3 to Team SoloMid in a very close series. In the Summer Season with increased competition, Cloud9 struggled more than before and finished the regular split in 4th place. Their performance in the playoffs was very lackluster and their run was cut short with a 1-3 loss to Team Dignitas in the Quarterfinals. Despite their rough performances Contractz became a more solid and consistent player as a whole. This was one of Cloud9's advantages going into the Regional Qualifiers. The team managed to qualify for the 2017 Season World Championship with a 3-1 win over CLG.
At Worlds C9 finished first in their Play-In group with a 4-0 record and then defeated Lyon Gaming 3-0 to advance to the Main Event. Put in Group A along with SK Telecom T1, EDward Gaming and ahq e-Sports Club, C9 managed a 3-3 record and made it out of the group in second place. Their Worlds run was put to a halt however after they lost 2-3 to Team WE in a very close match. In November of 2017, Contractz left C9 and in December he would join the newly formed Golden Guardians team.
