Svenskeren has been reunited with his former organization Cloud9 as a substitute player. Svenskeren formerly represented C9 in two World Championships and served as the team’s starting jungler during the 2018 and 2019 League of Legends seasons.

Jungler Dennis “Svenskeren” Johnsen has rejoined Cloud9, the North American Org. as a substitute for their League of Legends roster. Svenskeren most recently competed in the LCS in 2021 as the starting jungler for Evil Geniuses.


The organization has not announced Svenskeren’s future with the team, but with Cloud9 LCS at the top of the rankings with an 11-2 record and an eight-game winning run, the 26-year-old might have a bigger role in the Academy roster. Svenskeren could be a strong veteran presence to help develop Sebastian “Malice” Edholm, the young jungler for Cloud9 Academy. 


Fans raised questions on the move as Cloud9 already has a powerful jungler lineup with Blaber and Malice. But after looking at the other aspects of the decision, it is indeed a wise move by the North American esports ORG. Because the Academy jungler  “Malice” is not a permanent NA resident, C9 would have to bench one of their imports, “Summit” or “Berserker”, to make room for him. But the arrangement will allow the jungler, Svenskeren to replace Robert “Blaber” Huang when needed without benching, “Summit” or “Berserker”.

Svenskeren’s History with Cloud9

After playing four years in Europe, he stepped into North American LoL esports in 2015. He joined his first LCS team, TSM in November 2015 and won three LCS titles, and attended two LoL World Championships with them. TSM was the first team in NA LCS history to ever achieve three titles in a row.

Svenskeren left TSM at the end of the 2017 season and joined Cloud9. He continued his amazing performance in the domestic league in the following season. Svenskeren led C9 to second place in the NA LCS 2018 Summer and also helped the squad become the first North American team to reach the World Championship semifinals.

Cloud9’s performance at Worlds 2019 fell below expectations, and the squad was forced to take an early exit. After being benched alongside Nicolaj “Jensen” Jensen and Zachary “Sneaky” Scuderi during the Spring split, he competed in the Academy until his release at the end of the year.

In 2020, Svenskeren was acquired by Evil Geniuses. The team finished third in the LCS Spring 2020 Playoffs and 5th-6th in the LCS Championship in 2021 but the team failed to win any major title. After leaving EG during the offseason and spending the last 6 months without a team, Svenskeren has returned to the North American esports organization as a substitute player.
