Cloud9 Confirm Nisqy Has Departed LCS Starting Lineup

North American organization Cloud9 has confirmed that Yasin “Nisqy” Dinçer has departed their LCS starting lineup, with the 22-year-old now looking for a new team ahead of the new season. While a huge number of teams having been busy during the 2020 League of Legends offseason, Cloud9 have undoubtedly been one of the most active.

What Nisqy Has Achieved at Cloud9

Belgian mid laner Nisqy only joined Cloud9 at the end of 2018, helping to bring an end to the teams championship drought this year. Nisqy played a major role in Cloud9’s dominance during the LCS Spring Split, where they finished with a 17-1 record. Cloud9 also made light work of winning the Championship, losing just a single match in winning their first LCS title since back in 2014.

Nisqy scarified his preferred mid lane position, which saw him making plays across the map alongside Robert “Blaber” Huang. The Belgian finished the season with the highest number of assists in the entire league, despite having taken time to find his best form. However, Cloud9 struggled to rediscover their best form following a switch to a meta version of the game, with the team eventually being knocked out of the World Championship in the Playoffs after a defeat to TSM.

Nisqy has played for the likes of Team EnVyUs and Splyce in the past, while he was also a member of the Fnatic academy from November 2016 to May 2017. His League of Legends professional career started back in 2015 with PunchLine Esports Club.

Why Cloud9 Have Parted Company With Nisqy

A return to Europe could well be on the cards for Nisqy, with the Turkish born player having already been linked with Fnatic, who are looking for a replacement for starting mid laner Tim “Nemesis” Lipovšek. Meanwhile, Cloud9 have been strongly linked with a move for G2 star Luka Perkz Perkovic, with ESPN reported Jacob Wolf having talked up what would be one of the biggest transfers in the history of the Western League.
