Cloud9 Announces the Departures of Impact and Contractz

We at Cloud9 announce today the departures of Eon-Young Impact Jeong and Juan Contractz Garcia from the League of Legends competitive roster. From Spring split to Worlds, Impact and Contractz were an integral part of the many successes we experienced in 2017 and will be missed by all of us here at Cloud9.

Whether it was Impact’s nigh unkillable Galio helping send C9 to Worlds, or Contractz giving Kayn a proper introduction to the NA LCS, we are grateful for the memories they have provided us and the efforts they brought to this organization. Their presence here can never be replaced and we wish them the best with their future endeavors.

“I can’t say enough about how wonderful it’s been to work with Impact and Contractz. I’ll miss working with them behind the scenes and I’ll miss what they brought to the game, but I’m so glad we had a chance to have them here at Cloud9. And although they’re now going to be tough competition, you can bet I’m looking forward to those matches.”
— Jack Etienne, Cloud9 Founder & CEO

We are excited to welcome some new faces to the team and eager to see all the things that we’ll accomplish in 2018. There will be many more memorable moments to come and we know the fans will have plenty to cheer for!

Thank you Impact and Contractz for what you helped us achieve. We can’t wait for our paths to cross again, both as friends backstage and as challengers on Summoner’s Rift!
