It took the organisation two and a half years to return with a Dota 2 roster: Johan 'pieliedie' Åström, Rasmus 'rASmus' Fillipsen and three other players joined the veteran organisation in January 2020.
They decided to compete in Southeast Asia, Cheng 'vtFaded' Jia Hao and Rolen Andrei Gabriel 'ctm' Ong's home region. But they already failed in the Open Qualifier for the upcoming Major in the Ro8 where they lost against a team from Thailand 1-0.
EternalEnvy and Sneyking join
A few days ago the rumour has been spread that Jacky 'EternaLEnVy' Mao could rejoin his former organisation, because the Canadian carry and JingJun 'Sneyking' Wu left Fighting PandaS eleven days before the Minor competition started.

Cloud9 confirmed that Sneyking and EE will join the NA organisation alongside Marcus 'Ace' Hoelgaard. The Danish core also played for Cloud9 in the beginning of 2017 when his regional team Danish Bears* were signed. Afterwards he played for Team Secret and Ninjas in Pyjamas.
By signing two North American players it's likely that Cloud9 will move back to their home region for the next round of DPC qualifiers.
