Cloud9 Sign Laser Kittenz as Contenders Kicks Off

We at Cloud9 are thrilled to announce the acquisition of Laser Kittenz just ahead of Overwatch Contenders Season One - Europe, which kicks off this week! With an impressive 5-1 record and trip to the semifinals in Season Zero, Laser Kittenz put the league on notice, and we are looking forward to this roster making even more noise in Season One.

“What Laser Kittenz were able to do in Season Zero grabbed everyone’s attention, myself included. From top to bottom the organization proved themselves committed to competition, devoting their talent and time to earning their place in Season One. I’m excited to welcome them to the Cloud9 family and we’re all looking forward to adding to their already long list of accomplishments.”
— Jack Etienne, Cloud9 CEO & Founder
“It is a great honor to join Cloud9. Jack is a true industry leader, and the iconic brand he has built here speaks for itself. I’m happy to be able to fully focus on equipping us with the best possible chance at winning Overwatch League, and the road starts now with Contenders. Representing London is a dream come true and marks my return to the UK scene. I look forward to making all our fans proud.”
— Alicus, Cloud9 Overwatch Manager

With the competitive Overwatch scene growing more exciting by the day, we at Cloud9 are proud to be planting roots that will enable us to bring the best competition and entertainment to the fans both now and in the future.
