There’s no bigger stage in the world of MOBA than the League of Legends World Championships and pro eSports team Cloud9 are now in a position to start advancing through its ranks after securing a spot within the tournament with an impressive win over TSM during the North American League Championship Series Regional Qualifier.

Sporting a team of Licorice, Blaber, Jensen, Zeyzal, and Sneaky Cloud9 made surprisingly short work of TSM’s squad which consisted of Grig, Hauntzer, Zven, Mithy, and Bjergsen who had just emerged victorious over the Echo Fox side with a huge 3-0 win. The first-to-three set opened up with TSM making some great advancements throughout the match only to be cut down by Cloud9’s side at the last moment. The second match saw a tight neck-and-neck scenario before Cloud9 broke away once again to secure their second victory of the day. The third and final match was all about Cloud9 as they displayed a runaway performance dealing the final blow to their opponents.

With a sweeping 3-0 victory under TSM Cloud9 can now advance to the League of Legends World Championships for a shot at the biggest prize in the genre.
