Steve "Chauster" Chau is a North American professional League of Legends player. He was the Support player for Counter Logic Gaming. In the past, he has also been the AD Carry, Mid Laner, and Jungler for CLG. Retired from competitive League of Legends on October 23rd, 2013.


Chauster hails from San Jose, California in the USA. As the youngest of his family, Chauster always followed his older siblings and mimicked whatever they did, which was predominantly playing games. He first started out with NES games like Contra, Double Dragon, and Tecmo Wrestling and transitioned to SNES and PlayStation. During that time, he began playing Starcraft I exclusively. However, Chauster found it difficult to balance his time for gaming and education, so he decided to take a break from gaming. When he found free time, he tried out League of Legends just as something to do to pass time but eventually became hooked. He believes that even though he doesn’t have the best mechanics, reaction time, or skill, he makes up for it with his superior knowledge of gameplay. As League of Legends continues to grow, Chauster believes it would be amazing if it was the game that pioneered eSports into the mainstream for the United States. [1] On October 23rd, Chauster announced his retirement from League of Legends.[2]
