Cloud9 Jack Confirms no Bjergsen, Hans Sama, or Mikyx for 2022


by in League of Legends | Nov, 8th 2021

Don’t get your hopes up — none of the following players will be joining Cloud9 for the 2022 competitive season: Søren “Bjergsen” Bjerg, Steven “Hans Sama” Liv, and Mihael “Mikyx” Mehle will all compete under someone else’s banner. This has been confirmed by Cloud9 CEO Jack Etienne on Twitter, so it’s pretty much as official as it gets.

“After last year I’ve learned to be careful about sharing roster information early but I’d like to clarify one false rumor. I’m certain the roster will not include any of the following people: @Bjergsen, @G2Mikyx, @Hanssama. They are all incredible players but won’t be joining C9,” said Jack.

Now, this is quite an interesting update as we know that Luka “Perkz” Perković will be moving back to Europe which, in turn, means that Cloud9 will look a whole lot different come 2022. Moreover, Jack often tends to “sell” his players when they’re at their peak, so it’s fair to assume that no one on Cloud9 is “safe.” They’ve all done an admirable job, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t say that they had often struggled throughout the year, both individually as well as a five-man unit.

Interestingly enough, Ibrahim “Fudge” Allami was arguably the least volatile of the bunch and was, in fact, one of their most vital performers, both in North America and on the international stage. We assume that Cloud9 will try their hardest to keep him for 2022, but one can never be too certain.

A Mid Lane Conundrum


With Perkz leaving, Cloud9 will be hard-pressed to find a suitable replacement. Rumor has it that Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen is going to part ways with Team Liquid, but it’s highly debatable whether he’d be interested in returning to C9.

Marek “Humanoid” Brázda (of MAD Lions fame) supposedly has a lot of interest from North American teams and one would have to assume that Cloud9 is at the top of his list of priorities — a premier destination, if you will. Whether things will pan out that way still remains to be seen, but no one should be overly surprised to see this seasoned Czech mid laner representing the boys in white and blue come 2022.

Still, there are many ways in which this could unfold, so it’s best for us to reserve judgement and wait for things to become official.
