Milwaukee Bucks Co-Owner to Launch FlyQuest Esports Brand

Cloud9's LCS Challenger team is set to re-launch shortly under a new “FlyQuest” esports brand, according to sources quoted by ESPN.

The team was purchased by Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Wesley Asper for $2.5 million back in December last year.

Team members An "Balls" Van Le (top laner), Hai "Hai" Du Lam (mid laner), Johnny "Altec" Ru (AD carry), and Daerek "LemonNation" Hart (support) have currently signed contracts with the new FlyQuest team.

A jungler has not been announced at this time, with the previous team jungler Juan Arturo “Contractz” Garcia moving up to the main Cloud9 team and signing a two-year contract.

Time is running out to secure a jungler however, with the team reportedly hoping to premiere at the North American League Championship Series starting in just two weeks time on January 20.
