Tian "Meiko" Ye currently resides in Shanghai, where he plays support for EDward Gaming.
Meiko played for a team called Rayunion starting mid 2014. The team was most noted for their support and jungler, hui. The team's greatest accomplishment was beating Star Horn Royal Club in the qualifier for National Electronic Sports Tournament 2014. The team disbanded after disappointing results in TGA Grand Prix Winter 2014.
Meiko joined EDward Gaming as a substitute support player. At the time, EDG expected to run Mouse as their starting support. Mouse did not deliver the results EDG expected, going 0-2 to Snake in Week 2. In part because Mouse was transitioning from the mid lane, he had to catch up. His synergy with starting AD carry Deft also did not seem very high. In Week 3 of 2015 LPL Spring, Meiko played his first match with the team as starting support player against Invictus Gaming. EDG would 3-0 the week, picking up six map wins in total. Meiko's heavy roaming style suited the team, and they continued to improve. He received attention for his Annie and Thresh play in particular, following in the footsteps of Fzzf, EDG's previous support, noted for his engagements. EDG placed first in the regular spring season, only losing 4 games with Meiko in total. His most impactful supports were Annie, Janna, and Thresh for the split.
EDG placed first in the LPL Spring regular season and qualified for the 2015 LPL Spring Playoffs. They won the whole tournament with a close 3-2 win over LGD Gaming. They went to the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational and won by upsetting SK Telecom T1 in a 3-2 series. EDG played in the 2015 Demacia Cup Summer Season and won the entire tournament with a crushing 3-0 victory over OMG. EDG placed first overall in the 2015 LPL Summer Regular Season and entered the 2015 LPL Summer Playoffs as the top seed. However, they ended in fourth after losing 3-0 to LGD Gaming and 3-1 to Invictus Gaming. They still qualified for the 2015 Season China Regional Finals where they managed to qualify for the 2015 Season World Championship as the second seed from China with a 3-1 victory over IG. At MSI, EDG pushed their way to the finals and upset the heavily favored SK Telecom T1 by baiting Faker into picking LeBlanc and picking a comp to counter it. EDG won the series 3-2 and took home the title of best team in the World. EDG participated in the 2015 Demacia Cup Summer Season where they won again by taking a 3-0 set against OMG. They ended in first place once again in the 2015 LPL Summer Regular Season but in the 2015 LPL Summer Playoffs they faltered, dropping a 3-0 set to LGD and a 3-1 set to IG to end in fourth place overall. They still qualified for the 2015 Season China Regional Finals and managed to take the second seed from China to the 2015 Season World Championship with a 3-1 victory over IG. EDG were placed in a group with SK Telecom, H2k Gaming, and the Bangkok Titans. They came out of the group in second place and were drawn to play Fnatic in the quarterfinals but lost to them 3-0.
In Summer of 2016, EDG was placed in Group A of the 2016 LPL Summer Split. This split was the start to EDG's resurgence as the team finished with an undefeated 16-0 regular season record. In the 2016 LPL Summer Playoffs EDG defeated Team WE 3-2 in the semifinals which set them up for a rematch against Royal Never Give Up. In clean fashion, EDG defeated RNG in a 3-0 sweep and reclaimed the LPL championship. This also qualified them for the 2016 Season World Championship as China's #1 seed.
At Worlds, EDG was drawn in Group C along with H2k-Gaming, ahq e-Sports Club and INTZ e-Sports. Despite being a favorite in the group, they dropped a game to H2K and INTZ which forced a tiebreaker between them an H2K for 1st and 2nd place. They lost the tiebreaker and ended up in 2nd place. EDG's worlds run ended after the team lost 1-3 to the ROX Tigers in the quarterfinals.
EDG failed to defend their LPL title in the 2017 LPL Spring Season and lost 1-3 to RNG in the 2017 Spring Playoffs semifinals. They placed 3rd after taking down OMG 3-2 in the third place match. Summer was much better for EDG and they reclaimed their throne as LPL champions after taking down RNG 3-2 in the finals of the playoffs. Their 2017 Season World Championship participation wasn't so stellar and ultimately EDG was knocked out of Worlds in the group stage. They finished tied for 3rd place with ahq e-Sports Club.
