Ah, a C9 LUL.
Once an Overwatch in-joke, a C9 LUL has turn a entire Twitch meme. Here’s where it started. During OGN Overwatch Apex deteriorate dual in mixed matches between Cloud9 and Afreeca Freecs Blue, Cloud9 left a constraint indicate uncontested while in overtime during differently winnable situations. It didn’t usually occur once. It happened a few times via a march of a series, and Cloud9 finished adult losing to Afreeca Blue 3-1.
C9 LULs occur all a time in rival Overwatch, though they’ve been a disease during Overwatch Contenders. One Redditor put together a gathering to applaud a meme in a Overwatch Contenders glory. (And it starts off with a strange C9 LUL, too.)
A integrate of C9 LULs are missing, though they’ve got a best few. One of a some-more large gaffs was during a Immortals vs. Rogue. While pulling a cargo forward, Immortals had small meters to strech a checkpoint. In overtime, players can’t leave a cart—and that’s accurately what Immortals did. All 3 players that were pulling a cargo brazen separate from a transport during a same accurate time, and a time ran out.
The subsequent few were a product of this weekend’s past Overwatch Contenders matches, where we got C9 LULs in both North America and Europe. First up, GamersOrigin C9 LULs in a compare opposite Cloud9 themsevles on Numbani. But then—Cloud9 C9 LULs on Hanamura.
Lastly, over in North America, EnVision C9 LULs on Volskaya Industries opposite Team EnVyUs.
The week 5 Overwatch Contenders matches, notwithstanding being abundant with C9 LULs, pushed a contest brazen into a sixth week. No group has been technically eliminated, though scores so distant have dynamic that teams have warranted spots in a contest playoffs. In Europe, Misfits and Team Gigantti have valid themselves estimable of a playoff spot, while Bazooka Puppiez are now incompetent to pierce on.
For North America, Team EnVyUs and FaZe Clan have warranted playoff spots. EnVision, Rogue, and FNRGFE are left to quarrel for a final dual spots, while Kungarna, Immortals, and Renegades are mathematically eliminated.
Overwatch Contenders resumes Sept. 22 with a full day of European Overwatch. It continues via a weekend with both Europe and North America.
