Following Cloud9’s 9th-16th place finish at VCT 2023: LOCK//IN, the storied North American organization made the shocking decision to part ways with VALORANT star Jaccob “yay” Whiteaker and In-Game Leader Anthony “vanity” Malaspina.

In their place, Cloud9 revealed their two newest additions to be Dylan “runi” Cade and Jake “Jakee” Anderson to complete their VCT 2023: Americas League lineup. As a result, expectations were low for Cloud9’s ability to compete with the competition in the VCT 2023: Americas League.

Initially, things looked bleak for Cloud9 VALORANT in the first instances of their VCT 2023: Americas League debut. After the first half on Pearl, Cloud9 found themselves down 3-9 against Evil Geniuses as many doubt’s against Cloud9’s new roster had grown even larger. However, a dominant second half on Pearl helped Cloud9 cement a comeback as they bounced back on pearl to win map one 13-11. That dominance from the second half on Pearl continued to Fracture. Cloud9 soared to an early 8-4 lead in the first half before ultimately closing out the game 13-9 and cementing a strong 2-0 victory in their VCT 2023: Americas debut.

In this interview, we spoke to Cloud9 VALORANT’s in-game leader Dylan “runi” Cade about opening the VCT 2023: Americas League on a victory, his relationship with Matthew “mCe” Elmore, and silencing the Cloud9 doubters.
