Cloud9 announces LCS squad for summer 2022: Jensen returns, Zven swaps roles

After a disappointing end to the spring split that saw the team fail to qualify for MSI, Cloud9 has announced their 2022 summer split list with Jensen returning.

Cloud9’s infamous spring split experiment “Korea9” has finally come to an end. On May 2nd, the team announced that they were parting ways with MVP top laner Park ‘Summit’ Wootae, as well as supports Kim ‘Winsome’ Dongkeon and Jonah ‘Isles’ Rosario.

A report by Upcomer suggested that Ibrahim ‘Fudge’ Allami would return to top lane for the summer split after switching roles to mid-spring, leaving Cloud9 in search of a new mid laner.

These rumors have now been confirmed. Former mid laner Nicolaj ‘Jensen’ Jensen will return to the team after a break from competitive play, and substitute AD carry Jesper ‘Zven’ Svenningsen will switch roles to support him. Fudge returns to the top lane.

Jensen’s return and Zven’s role reversal

Jensen was notably absent from the LCS in the spring after leaving Team Liquid in late 2021, without a team. One of the LCS’s most experienced players, he has never missed a World Cup in his career and is one of North America’s most decorated players.

One of the most surprising moves of this C9 offseason is the role swap from Zven to Support. This will be the first time in his career that he will play a role other than AD Carry.

Issues with import restrictions meant Cloud9 couldn’t field the European veteran in either the academy or the LCS roster for the Spring Split, forcing Zven to take a short break from competitive play while still signed with Cloud9 and still according to the organization with the trained team.
