Gen.G cleanly sweep Cloud9, North America out of Worlds 2021, set up first all-Eastern semifinals since 2017

For Cloud9, the burden of being “North America’s last hope” at Worlds is nothing new. Of the eight League of Legends World Championships that the organization has attended all time, C9 have been the last NA team standing at seven of them. 

Moving into the semifinals of this year’s World Championship, though, NA will once again be without a representative since C9 fell to Gen.G of the LCK in a convincing quarterfinal series today. Despite two of the three games played during today’s series extending into the nail-biting stages of the late game, Gen.G were still able to prevail in the end and wp up a clean sweep with ease.
