Cloud 9 announced the exit of their Rocket League team on its official Twitter account. Mariano ‘Squishy’ Arruda one of the star player of the roster will be joining NRG Esports. On the other hand, the brain behind this successful roster Coach Jayson ‘Fireburner’ Nunez along with the deadly duos Kyle ‘Torment’ Storer and Jesus ‘Gimmick’ Parra has announced the formation of the new team named “Rat Enterprises“.
Team C9 Rocket League’s journey started on July 28th 2017 after acquiring “The Muffin Men”. Since then, there was no turning back for the team. RLCS Season 4 North America was the first major tournament won by the squad. The team kept the successful momentum on their side by winning the Rival Esports: Summer Open and the Rocket League Universal Open: Season 2 in 2018. The win against the undefeated Dignitas at the RLCS Season 6 Finals 2018 with 4-1 crowned the Rocket League team World Champions. 2019 also brought success with it, as the team went on to win at DreamHack Pro Circuit: Dallas 2019.
Today we are sad to announce that we are departing from Rocket League and after 1,129 days (1,048 as #C9RL), The Muffin Men are splitting up.

2020 doesn’t come out to be a good year for the team as they couldn’t make their way through the Rocket League Spring Series – North America finals.
“I’m so proud of everything C9 Rocket League achieved during their time with us. They’ve proven themselves on the biggest stage by bringing home the RLCS trophy and I have no doubt that they’ll be pulling off more highlight-reel moves soon. Everyone here will miss them and we thank them for being such an incredible part of Cloud9.”

Nearly 4 years with these two and we accomplished so many amazing things together, so many amazing things together that I’ll never forget but it had to end eventually. I wish them nothing but the best of luck in the future. I know we’ll have many intense series to come.
