Cloud9's LCS team has announced that due to Daerek "Lemonnation" Hart's retirement, they will be holding open tryouts for a new support or jungler.

If the organization finds a jungler they are satisfied with, they'll transition Hai "Hai" Du Lam into the support role, while if they find another support player, he will remain the team's jungler.

Hai was C9's midlaner until he announced his retirement in April of this year. He was meant to transition into a role as C9's Chief Gaming Officer, but was called back in to play in the Summer Split after the team's performance slipped. William "Meteos" Hartman later officially stepped down, letting Hai take his place in the jungle.

Anyone interested in playing for C9 must be 17 years old or above by Jan. 2016, be able to move to California and be ranked Challenger in NA, EU, KR, CN, TW, or OCN regions.

The announcement also states that there is a preference for players fluent in English who have "previous competitive experience."
