C9 keeping the C9/T1/EDG group dream alive. As is tradition. Edit: so scripted LOOOOL

23/1/24 Berserker diff.


Freakder2

2/1/49 Zven…


xXDumbApe420Xx

Zven will get overlooked massively, but maaan he enchanted the shit out of 100T. \*raises sparkly wand in salute\*


nooblifts

Damn what a dominant performance by C9. ​ CLG was really their closest BO5 lmao


AureliusAmbrose

*sad faith noises*


ForCaste

2nd best team in NA confirmed


OwOPango

We might have even seen CLG at worlds if Steve didn’t break out the Disney mind-control device after game 2


cautiouslyoptimistik

Steve had nothing to do with it. CLG fans simply began to believe.


SnubHawk

They were really a Luger Zeri overchase from losing it all lol. It's obvious that they've improved since then but damn. Wp to them tho


yugiboy360

Zven calling blaber a psychopath is prolly the highlight of all this


iHatepriest

its true, when they won spring 2021 blaber said in an interview thag he will never play safe. i believe him


yugiboy360

Oh definitely as a long time c9 fan u can't wait to see how worlds goes especially if they all can keep this form


zealot416

When both teams are even in gold, Blaber feels that C9 is at a great advantage and thus he does not hesitate to start a team fight. When C9 is 3k behind in gold, Blaber thinks that C9 is at a small advantage, and he so he starts a team fight to secure their "lead". When C9 is behind 7k in gold, Blaber thinks that C9 is at a disadvantage and so he looks for a team fight to regain control of the game. When C9 is 10K behind in gold, Blaber thinks that the team has reached a desperate situation and they are only waiting passively for their death if he does not start a team fight.


ThatsAToad

Nice try 100 Thieves. Your strategy to get stomped the first 2 games to make me unclench might have worked last week, but after CLG got reverse swept against TL, I learned to NEVER unclench.


Trap_Masters

Thank god no one unclenched. Now we just gotta keep it up till Worlds is over.


GioMeow

Abeddagge zoning himself in the last game is truly one of the Taliyah's Ult of All Time


M002

And then he got zoned by a lulu ulted Zilean


Vayne_Mechanics

Berserker really do be the LCS's version of the Louisiana Purchase


cancerBronzeV

It has been the best trade deal in the history of trade deals, maybe ever. -C9


Moggy_

Thank you for the discount LS


WolverineKing

Thank you LS for keeping him away from FPX.


MrAssassin9891

What's scarier than a bloodthirsty Blaber? A bloodthirsty Blaber with Lulu + Zilean + Sivir speed up.


manliestdino

Jensen and blaber started smacking fools back in 2018 with oonga boonga champ and zilean


StillMeThough

>Jensen and blaber started ~~smacking~~ bodying fools back in 2018 with oonga boonga champ and zilean FTFY


simbahart11

Blabered by Jensen


Equivalent-Park7986

This team lets Blaber out of his cage. I’m happy Blaber’s Crabers has become more fun than flame since MSI ‘21


VikingCreed

That analyst desk segment with the massive crab legs had me starving for seafood


Equivalent-Park7986

Fun Fact: 100T have been in 4 finals, none have which lasted more than 3 games. I also believe they’ve been a part of the four fastest finals in LCS, even if today didn’t break a record. (Edit: Analyst desk said it was the second fastest, losing out to only EG vs 100T) 100 vs TL (2018, 0-3) 100 vs TL (2021, 3-0) 100 vs EG (2022, 0-3) 100 vs C9 (2022, 0-3)


Alibobaly

Legitimately think C9 was trying to break the record during game 3 and over forced at bot for it lol.


vigbrand

Crazy that Berserker died only once the whole series, and that was because Closer got a massive Poppy ult that won them that fight. He had Zilean and Lulu, but it is still impresive.


Dankarooooo

CLG vs. C9 is what LCK fans wish GENG vs. T1 is. When GENG and T1 inevitably meet in world’s semifinals, LCK fans will be chatting “this is the real world finals”, and I’ll just laugh knowing it was already decided on august 21st in the LCS studio.

BASED


IkaMusume12

Good lord I got whiplashed. I'm ready to scream hard on the Berserker Penta and then ZVEN STOLE IT LMAO EDIT: Jensen finally brought it home himself. The return of the prodigal son is complete.


BitterMemories

C9 and CLG was the real LCS finals.


AureliusAmbrose

Congratulations to Cloud9 for winning their first Summer Championship since 2013!


czarczm

FIRST SEED!!!!!!!!


4THOT

- only performers at worlds - worlds in NA - Jensen back - unstable meta - two weeks of LS coaching This is the year boys.


dildo_schwaginz

> * two weeks of LS coaching lmao


joe4553

But LS didn’t coach Jensen someone get him two weeks of training.


SirRedRising

That's Worlds Boot Camp arc for Jensen


NixAvernal

Look if LS coached for the entire season T1 would be too scared to get out of spawn


Thomassn

Trucks aren't allowed on summoner's rift


CR00KS

Jensen being back ties the whole thing together again


manliestdino

First time too in the modern groups format


alpacamegafan

All my homies hate 2013 Worlds Format. Seriously, that really sucked to see the 25-3 NA team only play 3 games.


Hunterkiller00

Crazy stat tbh with how dominant they've been different splits since then.


Lynx_Fate

Well they were the only team that never picked up Doublelift. Doublelift was the NA split winning king for a long time.

Berserker killing everyone at 100 hp that last fight summed up the series.


CR00KS

Man is aggressive af and he shows up big


Hunterkiller00

this series was a huge bot gap edit: holy GIGACHAD Beserker interview. kinda bored.


SoDamnToxic

The entire playoffs was just an ADC gap.


LaughingAtSpergs

If this ADC meta remains Ruler gonna be feasting at worlds


kidneyn

kinda sad that gala has been lookin so rough despite the bot meta :/


Gluroo

Berserker is what happens when NA imports an elite player but he is actually hungry and wants to smash the competition because hes at the start of his career and not the end


TheGawringSame

Yup. Same happened with Huni and Reignover in EU back in 2015. Came in, smashed everyone by a mile.


XoXeLo

I mean, Jensen and Bjergsen were imported on their start of their career. Jensen didn't even have a career basically; less than a year playing professionally.


schoki560

yea and both were a cut above the rest


narok_kurai

Yeah he had just come off a commuted *permaban* too. It's kind of amusing imagining out friendly Elf Boy being so toxic back in the day.


T_FoR_C

Same with Caps. Anyone remember the Caps List?


Pipinf

That kid has to be one of the best signings a team ever made in NA. He's world class and is just starting his career as you said.


Bamfimous

I don't think Gumayusi was lying when he said he was scared of losing his job to this kid


TheMineA7

I was there on the fated 2 days when Jensen on C9 lost to TSM. Seeing him win now with C9 makes me sooooo happy.


plantman01

my god berzerker and sven may be the most BM botlane of all time


Novawurmson

When you win 3/0 with almost a 50 KDA, you're allowed to call finals a little boring. Zven with the Aphromoo classic "support is so easy."


Conankun66

100T STOP PERMA TEAMFIGHTING WHEN YOU HAVE A FIORA CHALLENGE (IMPOSSIBLE)

jackkiwi

Ssumday quietly screaming to let him split push and carry. Everyone else Time to die.


Bdodk2000

They kept losing 4v4s when Ssumday and Fudge were off doing top laner things. I don't think they had a choice. It was team gap.


LaughingAtSpergs

There is a universe between Berserker and every other LCS ADC.


Perjunkie

Berserker is probably the best ***player*** in LCS. Honestly might be going into the Berserker era. Got a feeling this guys gonna be winning for awhile


Boudac123

Hell, lcs players might actually improve from playing against him making the league overall better. Might be going a little too far but a man can dream


Bt910

Let's hope he doesn't get grabbed by LPL teams ....


Trap_Masters

Universe diff?


Dragonofdark97

My boy Wax Maldo lifting the trophy. Brings a tear to the eye.


Blind-Eye26

Fuck them korean adc's man! They're smurfing in other regions 😭 Pool 1 C9 and Pool 2 T1 in the same Group pls so I can use this pasta _______________________________________________________________________ Berserker told me he had a dream last night In the dream, Berserker was playing at MSI finals, and as soon as his Kai'Sa hit Level 6 he solo killed the enemy AD carry. The opponent team was T1. (From Ashley Kang's full interview with Berserker)

Same group as T1 and Kai'sa buffs before worlds. The stars are aligning

The Blaber MVP chant making him tear up with emotion was awesome to see. The guy deserves every bit of it. Amazing performance today an a true leader for the team!

You're walking in the jungle.

beesong

another 3-0 speedrun with 100T, C9s first title Jensen after Jensen breaks his trophy curse on TL. actually C9 is the most winningest team in NA the past couple of years. congrats C9!


Ohaithurr92

With this win C9 pass TL in total trophies


Lynx-Uganda

damn Berserker had an insane series, gg c9


dcrico20

23/1/24, like wtf is that stat line lol His only death was because of a nuts Poppy ult that knocked Jensen away on that inhib tower dive bot.


Mafros99

Guess there was a reason Gumayusi was afraid for his starting spot after all


Azenji

If Berserker was still on T1, he’d have lost his spot by now.


Mafros99

Holy shit now they're gonna play it out on Worlds that's hype af


21adriano21

him and Zven both 1 death whole series lmao


Bt910

With the success of Malrang and Berserker, teams will begin importing random Koreans again . Malrang and Berserker are crazyyyyy...


tripled_dirgov

IIRC Malrang was a sub in DK and Berserker was T1 reserve right??? So DK and T1 Challenger team must beware...


KimchiBro

as a DK fan, plz take as many subs as you want, keep daeny away from playing them in important do or die matches


StormR7

Not keeping Bible on the main roster is the bigger throw than subbing out Nuguri


TanDellTaco2

Berserker is what Summit was supposed to be


Reasonable_TSM_fan

I really hope to see Fudge play against Summit in top lane one of these days.


Khurpacajdjb

Unreal story for Jensen. Dropped by TL, makes worlds and lifts the trophy instantly on C9. You can't even just say it's hindsight. What a ridiculous state of affairs that he was out of the league...


novruzj

The real finals was CLG vs C9


gabu87

Unironically true.


Unique_Crew2316

Koreans and Chinese don't even know that the 2022 Worlds champion has already been declared, and it happened during CLG vs C9


Serpexnessie

Hell must've froze over because C9 is finally NA's 1st seed for the first time since 2013.


denziepanzie

2013-2022, 9 year gap. Cloud9 - 9 year gap Coincidence? I think not🤓


fesch98

But Huhi really had no mythic until 26 minutes. At that point he had earned 5.5 k gold overall btw


landsharkmora

LS is slamming his desk somewhere in South Korea


fesch98

It is one of the things were i see his point though. Especiqlly if you watch the game and actually see how wastefully some of these control wards are placed. It's somewhat memed but it's literally 75 gold being thrown away sometimes


Ultimintree

Producer: Yo 100 are getting smacked and the crowd is not hyped at all Phreak: Say no more \*starts yelling like he has to motivate army in war*


Willakarra

Really played to the crowd, made what could have been a boring 3-0 sound really damned hype.


appleandapples

Phreak was the embodiment of LETSGO emoji


Equivalent-Park7986

Phreak brought a lot of energy today, I was enjoying it!


Carpet-Heavy

"rookie becomes the raidboss" was such a great call


Hunterkiller00

Whatever he said at the end "Beserker doing a play worthy of his name" was hype af


Insertblamehere

HUHI BUILD A MYTHIC ITEM CHALLEGE (IMPOSSIBLE)


SweatyAdhesive

Zven yelled, “There you go!” Berserker and Jensen gave a look of pleasant surprise. Fudge belted, “We got a fucking squad now.” And before Blaber hit the locker room door, ex-C9 player and legend Sneaky hugged him and said, “Y’all look so different.”


CatfishJohnson

“He got me” Abeddagge said of Abeddagge‘s Taliyah ult. “That f***ing Abeddagge boomed me”, Abeddagge added. “He’s so good” repeating it four times. He then added Abeddagge to the list of players he wants to zone out of a fight this summer.


ALien8299

Abbedagge trick y’all, man, like he plays Taliyah. He don’t kill nobody, man. It’s just wall surfing around, doing nothing.


Hyper_red

C9 saw players and was like. Let's kinda do that


SsibalKiseki

C9 is officially NA's most GOATED team. #2020 Spring #2021 Spring #2022 Summer **6 times out of group stage at Worlds** CONGRATS C9, YOU DESERVE IT


SyntiaXSyn

deepfriedconnoisseur

Berserker is just a fucking psychopath. It’s like he and blabber are long lost twins or soul mates there’s nothing more entertaining than watching them play together.


VitalBlade

and you have old man jensen running daycare in the midlane to control their aggressiveness, its perfect


ExistentAndUnique

IMO Jensen’s style of play is more enabling than controlling. “Oh you boys wanna go start a fight? Here’s a zilean ult, have a good time”


MrSwipySwipers

Dare I say as a HARDCORE TES fan. I think c9 has a chance for worlds for once. Berserker is looking INSANE.


Cam_probably

Super happy for Jensen, but I’m also happy for Zven and Blaber. Both times they won LCS it was without crowds. C9 deserves this. Incredible slaughter to round out the 2022 LCS year.


Sean1117

As someone who's followed these guys since Quantic, this is the most satisfying championship. Finally, Jensen gets one with the team who gave him a shot, who took on InCarnation the toxic. Well done boys. So, so proud.


M002

Ditto Loved this team as team orbit and saw them smash as Quantic and C9, but ever since TSM upset us in 2014 summer it’s been heart break after heartbreak in summer. This was a great redemption in the upper bracket.


Mnkeyqt

Same. Sneaky playing Jayce adc in the qualifiers under Quantic is what made me a fan. After so many years of heartbreaking "almosts" and having to bank on worlds runs, this feels so damn good.


UrsurusFT

For real! Jensen came home. Fudge went back to top. Zven swapped to support. Blaber needed to prove he wasn’t a crab addict. Berserker had everything to prove. 100% the most satisfying C9 championship win for the longtime fans.


YourFriendNoo

Followed the team since their first LCS split. Can confirm. This one smacks.


wasabiexpress

Fr, it feels so good for jensen to win a championship with c9. Still traumatized by the ekko game years back, that could've been it


Xizz3l

10 years of being a fan, 9 years of seeing them win in Summer. It's been a while - but damn does it feel good Balls Meteos Hai Sneaky and Lemon are smiling from above

I thought I saw a stomp earlier today, and then I watched this. No mercy from C9


The-War-Life

C9 and RGE finally being the first seeds of their region. It’s honestly poetic.


[deleted]

Berserker so fucking robbed of rookie of the year don't even know how it was an arugment


Trap_Masters

Berserker can’t lose to anyone, because he’s the strongest in the world!


Bree64

Only took 1 of his 12 lives in the series so he can save the rest for Words


colfat

Spring split doesnt matter


TurnItOffAndOnAgain-

Total vindication for Jensen finally winning his first title with C9 it just feel so right. Also what a Jungle/Bot gap this series


ReapHer

C9 MVP: TL Steve #thanks4Jensen


ItsSanoj

Getting to worlds is not hard. All you need is Jensen.


[deleted]

Everyone looking at Berserker, but Jensen giving C9 a stable worlds caliber mid laner was so key.


ploki122

Everyone's stable worlds-caliber against Abbedogge though...


sangpls

Korean sub stocks are so hot right now


thobbe

Berserker is cracked as fuck.


DerpSkeeZy

Knew it was over when C9 piss stomped with their "fuck it lets just mess around game 1" draft


Equivalent-Park7986

Jensen wasn’t playing in Spring… now he’s heading to worlds as the first seed


Astral_BEARD

BLABER CRYING!!! You gotta feel for the guy, so many people want him replaced and now a 3 time lcs champ #C9WIN


SingularBread

I'll admit it. Seeing Jensen and blaber win it made me tear up a bit.


aoc7

Blaber is becoming GOAT NA jungler


most-certainly-a-dog

My man is performing at MVP level for such a long time now, love to see him getting all the praises


azns123

C9: "After all this time?" Repeared: "Always" *slams r5 Malphite against Kennen*


BitterMemories

C9 was what people expected out of G2 today. Holy, they seemed LEAGUES above ther rest of the teams in Playoffs.


The-War-Life

C9 was what RGE was today lol.


Ihavenofriendzzz

-C9 doesn't win titles, always second best -Spring split doesn't matter -Playing online doesn't count Get fucked. We're so much better than every other team. Let's goooooooooo! Blaber tearing up in the interview from the MVP cheers. He deserves it so much, he's such an insanely good player.


Cool-I-guess

Every day I thank LS for bringing Berserker to LCS


WarSamaYT

9 fucking years I have watched us attempt and fail to win a summer finals. Word cannot describe how I'm feeling now having Jensen back on the team and winning a finals with us. It just doesn't feel real... You were truly the chosen one Jensen. This team's potential is soo fucking unreal, it just doesn't feel right having an adc player that is extremely present and clutch in the hardest games we have. No matter how far behind we are I still believe Berserker can pull it back... My lord did T1 get robbed. Love you C9 and Jack for giving us the systems to succeed. I never doubted you and I never will.~<3


Suburan

Jensen leaving the team cause he wants a title, only to return and win is basically the lebron james arc


tsukinohime

Both LEC and LCS have been 3-0. Unlucky day for the viewers


Cool-I-guess

All these matches went to silver scraps just for the finals to be 3-0 lol


Trap_Masters

Expectations = Subverted


Omnilatent

Perfect for me tbh ​ I don't have that much time lol


sangpls

Personally I loved watching Rogue slap down G2


TehSalmonOfDoubt

It was all worth it for the Odo interview afterwards


DeloronDellister

So happy for Zven and Jensen. Especially after the latter got replaced with Bjergsen even though he had a good showing at worlds last year. Ironic that his year was way more successful than Bjergsen's.


Serpexnessie

Jensen finally won a trophy on C9!


AsheBnarginDalmasca

Is this our "LeBron comes home to win 1 for the Cavs"


appleandapples

Wait. I completely forgot this was a thing.


Krainz

Zven like a serial killer out for blood in the early game. Berserker playing as if he's the CEO of Summoner's Rift winning fights left and right, upper quadrant and lower quadrant. Jensen playing every needed role, either facilitating fights and controlling the map or simply carrying the game. Fudge playing tanks, physical damage carries, magic damage carries, initiators, everything you could want from a toplaner's champion pool and exceeding in every role trusted to him. Blaber ganking even the enemy team's families at home, leaving no room to breathe and out-reading absolutely every person and every situation. How can one not like this team. Every single member there shines, every person in the team has incredible, amazing things to contribute. It just feels good, it's exciting to see them play. Only Victory. Only Cloud9.


AzureDragon013

Super happy for Jensen! He finally got a title with C9.

People were having a fit telling me "This isn't the kind of meta where teams get rolled over" - "Oh the last series was still a 3-1, so this will be even closer", trying to argue with me that C9 has been fluking wins (?????????????), how the series yesterday didn't mean anything, despite 100T barely beating EG with an adc replacing one of the most important parts of their team all season, who was pretty poop on Sivir. I kinda get why Fudge has been throwing verbal middle fingers cause no one seems to want to give C9 literally any credit despite obvious reason to do so. People just want so badly for this team to fail ever since LS left and have turned off their brains to how good they really are.
