Cloud 9 swept through Digital Chaos, 3:0, once again, as the last team to qualify for the $250,000 MLG World Finals. The event is scheduled to take place at the Ernest N. Morial Center in New Orleans, LA, between October 16-18. The newly formed team will join MVP.Phoenix, Team Secret, CDEC, LGD, EG, Virtus.Pro and (monkey)Business.
Too bad we ended on that last game… but looks like we will go to MLG world finals. gg @DIGITALCHAOSgg

Cloud 9 has been demonstrating impressive performances and quickly establishing themselves as a top NA team since their new roster was formed in August. Only two days ago, the squad grabbed their first championship title at BTS Series Americas #2. The team has recently qualified for Nanyang Championships LAN to take place in Singapore after taking down Digital Chaos, 3:0, in the Americas qualifiers’ finals.
This is the second time in the month that Cloud 9 has denied Digital Chaos a qualifier spot and swept through them in the grand finals. As both teams are newly formed and already becoming a dominant presence in the NA scene, a formidable rivalry seems to be brewing between them.
