One of the biggest surprises of this past weekend had to be Cloud9’s surprise victory over Evil Geniuses in 2-0 fashion. Going into the opening week of VCT 2023: Americas League, nobody was expecting Cloud9 to make any type of noise.

They were playing with two new players in Dylan “runi” Cade and Jake “jakee” Anderson who was also new to the highest level of North American VALORANT. So when you add that this group of five players has only had two weeks as a team to practice together, it is fair to say that not many people were expecting them to start their VCT 2023: Americas campaign on a win.

Yet, this past weekend showed that you cannot judge a team by its players as Cloud9 soared over Evil Geniuses after a tough 9-3 start on Pearl.

In this video interview, we spoke to Cloud9’s newest VALORANT player jakee on his VCT 2023: Americas debut, why he switched from duelist to controllers for Cloud9, and his expectations for the remainder of the season.
