We've been putting in so much work since Brazil Y2S3 Pro League Finals, Paris Major, and Six Invitational 2019 in pursuit of this recognition, so you can only imagine how overjoyed we were to get an offer from one of the best organizations in the world, and our dream team, Cloud9. We know there's a lot to live up to here, and we will do our best to make the fans proud and to reward the trust Cloud9 is putting in us.” -- Inyeong SummerRain Kim, Cloud9 Rainbow Six Head Coach
