Los Angeles, September 6, 2023 – Cloud9 Esports is excited to announce a shift in our fan engagement approach, aimed at better serving our community. With this, Cloud9 Esports will work diligently on the transition from STRATUS exclusive programming to a comprehensive fan model, this aligns with our values, and moves away from exclusive services and paid memberships to ensure that every fan can connect and engage without barriers.

Our fan community has always been crucial to our success. We recognize that their passion and dedication have propelled us to where we are today. And we are dedicated to deepening connections and unity among our fans and thus, the greater esports ecosystem.

As we enter this new chapter, we express gratitude to our dedicated fans who’ve stood by us. Your passion drives us forward and we want everyone to feel valued, appreciated, and a vital part of our journey.

This realignment allows us to focus on what truly matters – our competitive teams and our larger community. Fans can continue to participate in our social media channels and thriving Discord and Reddit communities – a detailed FAQ on this transition can be found here.
