Biography[edit]

Although born in Massachusetts, Meteos' hometown is actually Fairfax, Virginia. He started playing games around the age of 5 with his father's Game Boy. Before League of Legends, he was a sophomore at Christopher Newport University working towards a degree in Computer Science. When the beta for LoL came out, Meteos and his friends only played normal games. When the ranked ladder came out in Season 1, the group was reluctant to climbing the ladder since they didn't consider themselves to be "try-hards"; Meteos liked the no-stress environment with his friends and would especially get ladder anxiety when trying to learn things about the game.

Meteos played normal games for such a long time that the amount of wins accumulated caused his normal queues to last up to 30 minutes. At that point, he and his friends decided to play ranked solo queue to avoid the long queue times, eventually breaking into the top 20 on the ladder. It was at this point that other highly ranked players started to notice and be familiar with the notorious SkarnerSquare.png Skarner one-trick pony.

Season 2[edit]

Meteos got one of his first tastes in competitive LoL as a sub for CLG Black during a King of the Hill tournament. Link, CLG Black's midlaner at the time, highly praised Meteos for his jungling talent and foresaw a bright future in him. At some point, Meteos and his friends decided to make a team called Team Normal Stars to compete in Go4LoL tournaments. Although they started to consistently win them after a few months, they disbanded before the first NA LCS qualifiers because their Top laner was too young. WildTurtle, whom Meteos met in solo queue, asked him to sub for Cloud 9 for a few tournament. TrickZ, the jungler for Cloud 9 at the time, continued to be unavailable. This gave Meteos more and more opportunities to spend time and play for Cloud 9 in tournaments such as MLG Rising Stars Invitational and IPL 6 qualifiers. As Cloud 9 continued to succeed with Meteos in the jungle, the team decided to keep him on their starting roster.

Season 3[edit]

In February of 2013, Meteos was placed on Complexity as a substitute jungler.

On March 19, 2013, Meteos was part of a group of LCS players penalized by Riot for Elo-boosting. His accounts were suspended for 2 weeks and had all Season 2 rewards revoked.

On April 1, 2013, the Cloud9 roster consisting of Balls, Meteos, Hai, SnEaKyCaStRoO, and LemonNation was acquired by Quantic Gaming. The team's activity under the Quantic brand was short-lived as the team was reacquired by a newly managed Cloud9 prior to their LCS debut against Team Dignitas. In his first LCS game, Meteos went 1/0/7 on NasusSquare.png Nasus. This would mark the beginning of his phenomenal KDA scores for the Season 3 Summer Split, where he finished with a record high 12.7 ratio.

Meteos and the rest of Cloud 9 went on to become the first non-founding LCS team to become champions in their inaugural split - a feat that is still yet to be replicated. They went on to become quarterfinalists in the 2013 World Championship having a received a first round bye for winning the Summer Split. In the quarterfinals, Cloud9 lost to EU LCS champions Fnatic 2-1.

2014 Pre-Season[edit]

At their first international pre-season tournament, IEM Season VIII - Cologne in November 2013, Cloud9 received a bye into the second round and competed against Gambit Gaming from Russia. Here, Meteos' NocturneSquare.png Nocturne proved to be ineffective against Diamondprox and his squad. Gambit swept Cloud9 2-0, marking their second immediate exit from an international tournament.

In December, Cloud9 joined four other North American LCS teams at Battle of the Atlantic 2013, facing European champions Fnatic for the second time. With dominating performances by teammate Hai, Cloud9 took the series 2-0, resulting in an overall North American win at the tournament and $10,000 USD for the team.

2014 Season[edit]

Cloud 9 maintained their dominance in the NA region by winning their second consecutive LCS split, qualifying them for All-Star Paris 2014. Unfortunately, Hai's lung collapsed prior to the event, hospitalizing him and requiring the team to play with a substitute midlaner. Cloud 9 acquired Link from Counter Logic Gaming for the duration of the all-star event. The team went 3-1 in the group stage, losing only to SK Telecom T1 K. In the bracket stage were eliminated in the first round by OMG, losing 2-0.

In the summer playoffs, despite placing first in the regular season, they took second place overall, losing to Team SoloMid in the finals 2-3. The second-place finish qualified them for the 2014 Season World Championship, where they were drawn into Group D along with NaJin White Shield, Alliance, and KaBuM! e-Sports. Cloud 9 went 4-2 in the group, drawing with NaJin Shield for first place but losing the tiebreaker game. They were eliminated from the tournament in the quarterfinals, falling 3-1 to Samsung Blue.

2015 Preseason[edit]

Cloud 9 was the North American team fan-voted to IEM San Jose.[23] They defeated paiN Gaming 2-0, Alliance 2-1, and then Unicorns of Love 3-0 to win the tournament.

2015 Season[edit]

Due to their IEM San Jose victory, Cloud9 qualified for IEM Katowice in March. They lost their only two games, first to GE Tigers and then to yoe Flash Wolves, and finished in 7th/8th place. Domestically, they underperformed at the start of the season, and were in 8th place at the end of the second week of the spring LCS split. However, they improved over the course of the season, ending with a second-place finish behind Team SoloMid and a playoff bye; after beating Team Liquid 3-2, Cloud9 lost to TSM 1-3 in the finals and finished the split overall in second place.

Due to mid laner Hai's retirement, Cloud9's summer split did not go as well as their spring split had. After the 5th week of the split, the team was at a 3-6 cumulative record and part of a 3-way tie for 7th place with Enemy and Team 8. Looking to bring back their former shot caller, the team replaced Meteos with Hai, who switched positions to jungle, for the rest of the season.

After the end of the regular season, Cloud9 announced their intent to build a Challenger team around Meteos.[24] However, the team disbanded prior to playing any games, and when it reformed in April 2016, Meteos was not on the roster.

2016 Season[edit]

Instead of playing on Cloud9 Challenger in the 2016 Summer Season, Meteos rejoined the main roster, while Rush moved to Challenger. Favoring Rek'Sai and Gragas, Meteos re-acclimated to competitive play and helped Cloud9 to a 12-6 series record and a third-place finish for the Regular Season. In the Playoffs, Cloud9 defeated Team EnVyUs and Immortals before falling to TSM 3-1 in the finals; their second-place result was their best placement since Spring 2015. In the Regional Finals, or the gauntlet, Cloud9 faced and defeated both EnVyUs and Immortals to qualify for the World Championship for the fourth consecutive year. At Worlds Cloud9 made it out of groups in 2nd place with a 3-3 record but got knocked out in the Quarterfinals after an 0-3 loss to Samsung Galaxy.

2017 Season[edit]

Meteos left Cloud9 in February of 2017 and joined Phoenix1. The team finished 3rd in the regular season of Spring with an 11-7 record. In the playoffs they were knocked out in the Semifinals but managed to win the third place match 3-2 against FlyQuest. P1's Summer Season was much worse as they finished 10th place with a 4-14 record. Although they retained their LCS spot in the Promotion Tournament with a 3-0 victory over eUnited, P1 was not accepted in the newly franchised LCS for 2018. Meteos left the team in November of 2017 and joined the newly formed 100 Thieves.
