Cloud9 Blue took first place in the First Strike Open qualifier and is now the #1 seed going into the Closed qualifier in the next part of the First Strike tournament series.
While this is just the prelude to the main event, Cloud9 Blue is looking strong and is now the favorite team to win in the Frist Strike Closed Qualifier coming later this year. With a commanding win on Bind (13-5) Cloud9 Blue beat Team Envy.
In a very large field of teams, only one can be called our winner.
