According to sources from Upcomer, Cloud9's mid laner Ibrahim “Fudge” Allami will not be returning to the mid lane for the 2022 LCS Summer Split. Instead, the young pro player will be the starting top laner for C9. 

The team is currently looking for someone to fill the gap, and are even looking into picking up a new support as well after a disappointing finish during the 2022 LCS Spring Split Playoffs. 

 

C9 Looking for New Mid Laner 

With Fudge moving back to the top lane and replacing the 2022 LCS Spring Split MVP Summit, Cloud9 will have to look for a new mid laner. There are multiple options that Cloud9 can look into to complete their roster and try to make it to the 2022 World Championship, which will be played out on home soil for the first time in six years. 

According to Upcomer one of the options C9 is looking into is their former mid laner Yasin “Nisqy” Dinçer, but there are also reports of the Belgian looking for opportunities in Europe. One of the team interested in signing him are the Spanish MAD Lions who compete in the LEC. 

C9 has the freedom to look in Europe, since they still have one import slot open with the departure of Park "Summit" Woo-tae. This means that C9 could sign Czech mid laner Adam “Random” Grepl, whom they've also shown interest in. 

Finally, the team could go for their own homegrown talent and call up Academy mid laner Jouhan “Copy” Pathmanathan, which would leave another import slot open, if they want to replace either Isles or Winsome in the support position. 

Is Zven Roleswapping to Support? 

The role swap to support is nothing new. Star players like 100 Thieves Huhi and Team Liquid's CoreJJ made the switch and have thrived. One of the options for a support switch could be that long time player Zven – who is currently on the C9 Academy squad – moves into the position if the need arises. 

How will C9 fare for the next season? Which changes will truly impact the league and will they be able to show off their skill and make it to the 2022 League of Legends World Championship?
