Svenskeren, a former LCS MVP, has returned to his former team Cloud9 as a substitute player, the organization announced earlier today.
Svenskeren previously spent the 2018 and 2019 League of Legends seasons with C9 as the team’s starting jungler, helping the organization win two World Championships.
It’s unclear whether Svenskeren will play any on-stage games for C9’s League division upon his return, whether on the main LCS stage or the Academy level. The organization currently has two junglers on its roster: Malice and Blaber, the latter of whom played under Svenskeren during the 26-year-first old’s stint on the team.
From 2018 to 2019, Svenskeren and C9 finished second on the domestic stage twice, losing to Team Liquid in back-to-back Summer Split championships. Nonetheless, C9 were able to compete in Worlds during both of Svenskeren’s seasons on the roster. Svenskeren helped C9 become the first North American team to reach the World Championship semifinals in 2018.
Svenskeren was named to three All-Pro teams while playing for C9, and he was named LCS MVP for the 2019 Summer Split.
C9 currently has an 11-2 record in the 2022 LCS Spring Split. They’re on an eight-game winning streak and sit alone atop the league standings. After six weeks of play this spring, C9 is the only team in the LCS to have clinched a playoff berth.
C9’s next LCS game is this Saturday, March 19, against last-place TSM.
