Philippe Laflamme, known as “Vulcan,” is a 22-year-old Canadian League Of Legends player who has been playing under Cloud9 jersey for almost two years. Before that, he was playing for Clutch Gaming.

Vulcan spoke in a recent interview with Upcomer and talked about their performances in Worlds 2021 so far, scrimming against the international teams and how they performed in those practice matches, and more.

In the conversation, the talented support player touched upon the fact that Cloud9 is doing really well against North American and European teams, but they are struggling to fight against the Asian teams.

Furthermore, Vulcan pointed out that even though most people would say the loss also improves people, he mentioned that it isn’t the case for Cloud9 because of the individual mistakes that happen in the early game.

Besides that, the Canadian player stated that they don’t understand how to react to good team plays sometimes, which is kind of hard to improve as a team. However, Vulcan said that they could theory craft about how you can defend it next time.

Vulcan talked about their experience in scrims:

“We’ve been doing fine in scrims against teams for the most part, but when we scrim Asian teams, we’re getting fisted.

So it’s hard to get a lot out of those games, even though people say lose improve or whatever, sometimes it’s hard to get a lot of games when games are lost early from individual mistakes, or the enemy team makes a good team play that we’re not too sure how to react against.

You can, in that case, kinda theorycraft about how you want to defend against that next time. There are some learning points, but it’s been rough.”

Later in the conversation, Vulcan claimed that European teams are still better than the North American teams, but the gap between them is so close. However, there’s a huge gap between the eastern and western teams, as he said.
