Biography

Although he was born in Massachusetts, Meteos grew up in Fairfax, Virginia. He became interested in games when he was five after he used his dad's Game Boy. Before leaving school to play League of Legends, he was a sophomore at Christopher Newport University working towards a degree in Computer Science.

League of Legends Career

Meteos was introduced to League of Legends by his brother. His first earliest favorite champion was
Singed
. He played ADC in Season 2, but eventually switched to Jungle in April of 2012. He ranked up playing
Skarner
, a champion that came to be associated with him. He favored Jungle
Elise
in Season 3.

Meteos played "High Elo" normal games for a long time, earning over 3500 wins. At some point, he and a his friends decided to form Team Normal Stars to compete in Go4LoL tournaments. Although they were able to win consistently, they disbanded before the first LCS qualifying games because their top laner was too young to compete. He became friends with WildTurtle, who asked him to be a sub for Cloud9. Since the team hadn't decided on a Jungler, he asked if he could join full time. Meteos joined Cloud9 in early March after subbing for them in the MLG Rising Stars Invitational and IPL 6 qualifiers.

His original in-game name was "Long Dong" before it was changed to "Short Dog" for being offensive. But after an inactive name sweep, his current account's name became available. "Meteos" was the name he used in WoW for five years -- it comes from a Nintendo DS game by the same name that happened to be on his desk at the time he created his WoW account.

On July 3rd, 2015, Meteos announced that he was stepping down as Cloud9's main jungler and shot caller. Following the announcement, Hai came out of retirement to fill in during the Summer Split Week 6. Meteos extended his thanks for the concern from the community — many wondered if he had a family/health emergency because of some ambiguously worded updates on social media. [1] Meteos said that the team was not playing at its best with him as the shotcaller; he thought that if he stepped back for the rest of the split to let someone else jungle, C9 might avoid relegation. Jack Etienne, the general manager of Cloud9 said, “Meteos is a huge part of Cloud9 and one of the most talented players on our roster.” Meteos is still actively involved in the C9 brand and will even sub for the new jungler as needed.

On May 9th, 2016 it was announced he would return to the active C9 roster as Jungler.[2]

Cloud9 started the split slow, with most of their matches going 3 games. Bunny FuFuu then stepped down from the starting roster, thus giving Smoothie the starting Support role. Cloud9 ended the season strong beating Team EnVyUs (3-1) in the quarterfinals and Immortals (3-2) in the semifinals, but dropping to Team SoloMid in the finals (1-3). They moved to the gauntlet for the Regional Qualifiers where they beat Team EnVyUs (3-0) and Immortals (3-1) giving them the #3 seed for North America in the 2016 World Championship.
