Cloud9 vs. Guard

At the start of this match, The Guard had the highest ranking. So Guard chooses Bind as the first card, with C9 choosing Ascent as second, Haven being the decision maker.

Map 1: Link

It was Guard’s choice and they justified why they chose it by dominating the map. They went 8-4 in the first half and only gave up 3 rounds in the second half and won the map 13-7.

This performance was a statement from Guard that they are not kidding.

Map 2: Ascent

So it turns out that if that’s your map choice, you end up dominating the map itself. Since Cloud 9 performance was just too well prepared, 9-3 in the first half and acted like the 9-3 curse didn’t exist as they won with a score of 13-4.

Map 3: Haven

If the second card was dominant from Cloud 9I don’t even know what to call card 3. I mean Cloud 9 just didn’t leave room for the guard to work. And they 10-2 in the first half with a madman 1v3 clutch Xeta to close half.

And on top of that, Leaf was popping up, as he was leaving 7/30 and won 13-2.

This win just tells us one thing, Cloud 9 is the best team going into the playoffs, but we still have some crazy games to watch.

Future for C9 and The Guard

Even though it was just a ladder game for both teams, it was a crazy game to watch.

In the future, Cloud 9 will go against Knights or Rise (based on who is qualified) and La Garde will go against Sentinels/optical game. And these will be crucial matches for all teams if they want to get to Masters 1 Reykjavik.
