Cloud9 officially disbands
Cloud9 has officially disbanded after finishing 9th-12th in TI5, significantly below both fan and self expectations. It is still unclear what will be the next move for the organization.
Cloud9's DotA2 team has officially disbanded. The first solid information regarding this change came from Rasmus 'Misery' Filipsen's stream; on the stream he mentioned that C9 has disbanded and stated that "I can't say anything more than that. It's for the better, guys." Following this reveal, Jacky 'EternalEnvy' Mao confirmed Misery's information with a tweet.

The owner of Cloud9, Jack Etienne, said that the organization will be sponsoring a DotA2 team in the future. Although no "official" reasons have been given for the team disbanding, but it is speculated that the team's poor performance at The International 5 is a core reason.
Yes, Cloud9 will remain in #Dota2. I'll miss our old team but I'm excited to create our new squad. TY EE, Misery, Fata, Bone, & BigDaddy!— Jack Etienne (@CLOUD9_Jack) August 14, 2015
