Cloud9 is announcing today the release of League of Legends Assistant Coach Jung RapidStar Min-sung in order to allow his return to Korea as he fulfills his mandatory military service. RapidStar has been an integral part of our League of Legends team and their continued success, and all of us at Cloud9 are grateful for the professionalism and knowledge of the game he brought to the organization.
RapidStar joined the team in June of 2018 and immediately got to work, helping lead the team to an 11-7 record and a 2nd-place finish in the LCS 2018 Summer Split. He would then go on to help the team shock the world and come away with a 3rd/4th-place finish at Worlds 2018 in one of the greatest North American performances in the history of the game. In 2019, RapidStar’s leadership guided the team to a 3rd-place finish in the LCS 2019 Spring Split and a 2nd-place finish in the LCS 2019 Summer Split, as well as another trip to Worlds. This year, RapidStar helped Cloud9 finally reclaim the LCS title, their first since 2014, with an incredible LCS Spring Split that saw the team go 17-1.
We’re all thankful to have had the chance to work with RapidStar over the two years he spent at Cloud9. He has been a major part of the team and I know he’ll continue to be a valuable asset in the future. Good luck and I hope to see you at future League of Legends events!
