We also want to encourage players to continue competing at their highest levels throughout the month as all the top players on the ladder, especially those in the top 25, will be considered as we fill out the participants, so stay on your toes and keep an eye on your inboxes for any communication from Cloud9!
Joining us for this incredible competition are casters Erik DoA Lonnquist and Dan Frodan Chou, as well as Cloud9’s very own Khalif Khroen Hashim as analyst! With nearly 30 years of esports experience between them, we can’t wait to see the insights they bring us during the qualifier.
