of Legends has had its hero for the last two seasons, and that's the
gaming-world master, Nick “LS” De Cesare. At the end of last year, Cloud 9 has
officially signed with LS as the official coach of the League, and he has shown
his skills since then. Before joining the North American esports giant Cloud 9,
LS was a content creator and streamer as part of T1, and this year, he's
coaching the League Championship Series.
to his biweekly patch breakdown videos, LS was doubtful about the game's
direction. Nevertheless, he's been quite optimistic since he took over the
coaching position for Cloud 9. According to his opinion, Western teams have a
legit opportunity to go forward. Coaching the League Champion Series for 2022
is an excellent way for LS to show his pro gaming skills, which he already
his previous coaching years, when his teams only got to 4th place in 2019, this
year's coaching season for Cloud 9 brings more excitement.
What Are LS's Goals for
“LS” De Cesare, the head coach for Cloud 9, has high expectations for the
following Spring/Summer. He would never be happy with a second place, but for
now, his expectations don't surpass the chance to see Cloud 9 in the semifinals.
According to the previous year's results, his hopes are quite realistic as
Cloud 9 had an exciting 2021 season. With LS as the head coach, the team is
expected to win at least one of the major events this year.
What Are LS's Past
Results as a Coach?
- In 2014, he
coached SUPA HOT CREW for EU LCS Spring 2014 and EU LCS Summer 2014 and
reached 7th and 5th place.

to personal and professional problems, LS fled to Korea when he was only 18
years old. He started playing with the teams there, living in an MVP gaming
house with other gamers. He wasn't widely accepted until he befriended a fellow
gamer who helped him go back to the game, and that's when he started coaching
more actively. He wasn't LS back then, his nickname was LastShadow. Changing
the name after his turbulent life sequence brought him new positive challenges
like today's head coach position at Cloud9.
LS is one of the brightest minds in gaming, and it can't be denied. He's also
an excellent streamer, attracting a huge number of viewers and increasing the
game's popularity. His broadcasts are informative, and his comments are
brutally honest, which is why LS faces a lot of criticism and hate speech on
being super appreciated by a large part of the gaming community for his
to-the-point opinions, others still can't forgive him for the cheating session
when he was less than 12 years old.
the end, LS was just a kid back then. He left his past behind and gives his
best skills as the head coach for Cloud 9 for the following season.
