Biography

Johnny "Altec" Ru was born on May 8th, 1997 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Ru began playing video games at the age of 8, starting with Runescape, Maplestory, and other MMORPG games. League of Legends was his first MOBA game.

Altec's first competitive team was vVv Gaming, which he joined in April 2012 and then left in August. In January 2013, Altec became the AD carry for Curse Academy, where he stayed until July of the same year, and in October 2013 he was announced as a substitute for Team SoloMid.[1] Though he never played as a starter for the team, the position helped grow his presence in the scene, and he became known as one of the stronger up-and-coming players.

2014 Season

In December 2013, Altec joined The Walking Zed, replacing former AD carry bobbyhankhill. Altec stayed with the team through their acquisition by Cloud9, but when they failed to qualify for the LCS summer split, the team disbanded in May. Later that month, he joined Evil Geniuses as their starting AD carry, replacing yellowpete starting in the second game of the summer split.

2015 Season

Prior to the start of the Spring Split, Evil Geniuses rebranded itself as Winterfox. Altec played with them for the entire split; however, he switched to support for week 7, while their coach Paragon started as their mid laner. The team finished in eighth place with a 7-11 record, forced into relegations. Given the choice between playing against Team Dragon Knights and Team Fusion, Winterfox chose the former, despite their higher placement in the Challenger playoffs. Due to starting mid laner Kyle leaving the team prior to the tournament, TDK started Alex Ich in mid lane, and Winterfox lost the series 1-3 and sending them to the Challenger series. Altec left the team and joined Gravity, replacing Cop to rejoin the LCS for the summer split.[2] In the split's regular season, Gravity finished each week in at worst fourth position, even holding sole possession of first place for weeks 7 and 8; however, they lost both of their games in the final week and ended the season in fourth, after a tiebreaker loss to Team Impulse. In the playoff quarterfinals, Gravity lost to Team SoloMid, leaving them with a year-long total of 30 Championship Points, and qualifying for the regional finals in fifth place. They lost immediately in the gauntlet, reverse swept by first-round opponent Cloud9, who went on to qualify to Worlds.

2016 Season

Altec left Gravity and joined a new North American team, NRG, who purchased Team Coast's NA LCS seed. NRG started the LCS strong, tied for either first or second place through the first four weeks, but after the fifth week they fell down to fifth place and remained there for the rest of the season. They were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.

2017 Season

In January of 2017, Altec joined the newly formed FlyQuest. Although the team was expected to flop, they were dominant in the early stages of the Spring Split. Although they fell off later on, they still finished 5th with a 9-9 record. In the playoffs they defeated Counter Logic Gaming with a 3-2 reverse sweep. In the semifinals they lost 0-3 to Team SoloMid and later on lost the third place match 2-3 too Phoenix1, placing 4th overall. In the Summer Split Altec was moved back to a substitute role in favor of WildTurtle. Altec left FlyQuest and joined Team Dignitas in June. The Summer Season was much better for the team after he joined and they finished 5th place. In the playoffs Team Dignitas defeated Cloud9 3-1 in the Quarterfinals. Their playoff run was however put to a halt when they lost 1-3 to Team SoloMid in the Semifinals and 0-3 to Counter Logic Gaming in the third place match. In the 2017 Season North America Regional Finals Team Dignitas were swiftly eliminated after an 0-3 loss to FlyQuest. In December of 2017 Altec left the team after they were not accepted in the NA LCS franchising and joined Echo Fox.
