Christopher "MonteCristo" Mykles is a ex-League of Legends caster for OnGameNet, the co-owner of ggChronicle and previous co-owner of LA Renegades. He was also the previous coach for Counter Logic Gaming. He is currently an Overwatch caster for OnGameNet.


Monte attended Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland for a year before returning to the United States to continue his studies. He studied Literature. While working at a law firm in New York City, Monte became "obsessed" with League of Legends in its beta phase and subsequently founded ggChronicle to provide a journalism outlet devoted to League eSports.[1]

This was not his first experience with eSports, Monte was previously involved with eSports as a volunteer writer for WCReplays, a Warcraft 3 replays site.[2] He began shoutcasting for WCReplays with Phreak and attests that casting came naturally due to his many years of stage performance.[3] During his involvement with Warcraft 3 he managed a professional team with Verge Gaming and joined the Team Sportscast Network, a now defunct eSports shoutcasting organization.[4][5]

Subsequently he accepted a full-time contract casting position at OnGameNet.[6] Since July 24th, 2013 he has been coach for CLG, aswell as continuing to cast for OnGameNet.[7]

On September 5th, 2014, MonteCristo stopped coaching CLG, with Zuna taking his place.

On June 19th, 2015, he became the co-owner of Renegades.

As of May 9th, 2016, following allegations of misconduct against Renegades MonteCristo is banned for one year (until the start of the Summer Split in 2017) from holding any ownership or Riot-recognized position (including GM, team coach or team analyst) with any team in a Riot-sanctioned league. This ban does not extend to his casting or broadcast analyst position.
