There is no joy in Mudville today as Cloud9, the sole remaining North American contender in this year's League of Legends Worlds tournament, has struck out.
Cloud9 lost all three of its games today, bested twice by ahq e-Sports Club from Taiwan. That means that this year's LoL tournament will be without a contender from the U.S. Our sister site SB Nation has details on the remainder of the schedule, which runs through Oct. 31st.
