Cloud9 Eliminated from Worlds 2021, Leaving Top Four without Western Teams

Cloud9, one of the two Western teams to advance to the ongoing Knockout Stage of 2021 World Championship, has been eliminated from the event. In the final quarterfinal, the North American team has been defeated by the Korean team Gen.G Esports (0-3). Considering earlier elimination of MAD Lions, top four teams of the event are representing either South Korea or China.

The event will continue this weekend – first, we will witness a Korean derby between T1 and DAMWON Gaming (October 30th, 1:00 PM UK time), and then Gen.G Esports will take on the Chinese team Edward Gaming (October 31st, 12:00 PM).

2021 Worlds will conclude on November 6th with a best-of-five grand finale. Its winner will claim almost $500,000 in prize money, while the runner-up will receive around $330,000.
