Eternal EnVy in one of his streams confirmed that they were approached by Cloud9. However the NP roster decided not to go ahead with that deal since they wanted to be independent. They want to be able to chart their own success and possibly keep a larger profit from the operations. Cloud9 was promising them twice of what they earn right now, however the entrepreneurial urge in the organisation is strong and they declined the offer. We learnt later in the day about Cloud9 possibly acquiring the Team Imperial Dota2 roster.
