Dream team and Cloud9 squeezes into Challenger Series

Dream team and Cloud9 Challenger clawed their way into the North American Challenger Series (NACS) for the League of Legends Summer Season as the event gets underway next month.

Cloud9 Challenger and Dream Team managed to move into the tournament after staving off Destined for Glory and Arsenal in the qualifiers.

But by any accounts, Dream Team needs to step up their game to on improve their performance and results they achieved in Spring. The team formerly known as Astral Authority went 1-2-2 in the round robin, only picking up a win over bottom finishers Enemy.

On the other hand, Cloud9 Challenger had to purchase the palyoffs spot from Enemy after disbanding Cloud9 Tempest last November to reform their second-tier lineup.

Now, their new star-studded lineup An “Balls” Van Le, Lee “Rush” Yoon-jae, Hai “Hai” Du Lam, Johnny “Altec” Ru, and Daerek “LemonNation” Hart played a huge part in the team, capable of competing in the highest level such as delivering in the NACS qualifiers.

Still, the NACS landscape is not a familiar place. Only Team Liquid Academy returns from the Spring Season, with Ember having sold their spot.

Team Dignitas also offloaded its berth after LCS relegation and the other team coming down from the LCS, Team Dragon Knights, was forced to sell after a Riot competitive ruling. Their spot has been purchased by Eanix.

On the other side of the pond, the European Challenger Series (EUCS) has just moved into the playoff stage. Victors amongst Misfits, Euronics Gaming, Forge, and SK Gaming will claim a place in the EUCS Summer Season.
