Cloud9 completed a 2-0 sweep of Immortals on Saturday to stay undefeated in group-stage action at the 2024 League Championship Series Summer Split.

After edging Dignitas 2-1 in the opening week of the event, Cloud9 prevailed in 29 minutes on blue before winning in 34 minutes on red against Immortals to improve to 2-0 in group play. Robert “Blaber” Huang of the United States finished with a 5-1-7 kill-death-assist ratio in the victory.

Eight teams are fighting for six spots in the double-elimination playoff bracket. The top two seeds will head right to the upper-bracket semifinals, with the other four seeds duking it out in the upper-bracket quarterfinals.

The winner will take home $100,000 of the $200,000 prize pool, with the top three teams qualifying for the World Championship.

In Saturday’s other match, Dignitas blanked 100 Thieves, winning twice on red — in 34 minutes and in 32 minutes. Denmark’s Jesper “Zven” Svenningsen racked up a match-high 10 kills without recording a death for Dignitas.
