Yu "Cool" Jia-Jun (Hanzi: 余家俊) was previously a mid laner for FunPlus Phoenix. He was previously known as Santa.
Cool's first major team was OMG and he joined them in August of 2012. The team's first major tournament CPL Shenyang 2012 got off to a rocky start. Having narrowly beaten the Korean team MVP White 2-1, they went on to lose against veteran Chinese powerhouse, Invictus Gaming by the same scoreline, and then lost a rematch with MVP White, placing 3rd of three in the tournament. The following months led to strong showings at various small events and tournaments. A big opportunity to showcase their talents came in December 2012, when they would replace Azubu Frost in G-League 2012 Season 2. They were able to make it out of groups with a 1-2 record but lost in the first round of the bracket stage to eventual champions Team WE.i-Rocks, placing 5th overall.
It was during early Season 3 that OMG developed rapidly and started to become a feared opponent in Asia. They would qualify to play in NVIDIA Game Festival 2013 facing off against a few of the best Asian teams. They would lose against Season 2 World Championship participants World Elite and the Season 2 Champions Taipei Assassins, ending up 4th but proved to be a good experience for the players. Next OMG would qualify for one of the most competitive Chinese leagues, 2013 LPL Spring. Throughout the season, the team would tear through China's best, ending with a record of 21-7 and being 2nd going into playoffs. OMG overcame both World Elite and Positive Energy to become the LPL Spring Champions and prove their place as a world class team.
OMG would go on to win the major StarsWar 8 tournament, place 3rd at IEM Season VIII - Global Challenge Shanghai and dominate again in 2013 LPL Summer, ending in 1st place with a record of 17-4. Gaining much traction throughout Season 3, OMG became a favorite to possibly be a Chinese representative at the coveted Season 3 World Championship in Los Angeles. At the Season 3 China Regional Finals in September 2013, OMG would face off versus three other of the country's top teams for a spot at the championship. After beating Invictus 2-0, OMG was able to be victorious over Royal Club Huang Zu, advancing them to the grand final but more important, winning the seed for Worlds. They would lose to Royal Club in the finals 3-1 and although missing the chance to gain the huge advantage of being placed directly into the quarterfinals, it still meant they would be present in the US to fight against the world's best.
At the S3 Championship, OMG would prove to be a powerhouse in their groups, taking the teams by storm with their early game aggression. They would only lose one game to SK Telecom T1 and advance to the quarterfinals where they would face familiar foe, Royal Club Huang Zu. The match would be the most anticipated one for quarterfinals and did not disappoint. The set would prove to be explosive, with both sides playing very aggressively. OMG would being conquered by their Regional Finals rivals, losing 0-2 and finishing 5th overall.
In 2014 Cool temporarily retired and was replaced by Xiyang due to his eye sight. He later returned to the team in Summer. The team finished the Summer Playoffs in 2nd place after an 0-3 loss to EDward Gaming. OMG achieved a 3rd-4th place finish at the 2014 World Championship and lost 2-3 to Star Horn Royal Club in the Semifinal. OMG was able to get a 4th place finish at the NVIDIA Game Festival 2014 and a few semifinal finishes at the 2014 GALAXY eSports Carnival and the Demacia Cup - Season 2.
After they acquired Uzi in one of the biggest transfers ever, OMG was unable to work together due to having too many star players in all roles. Despite a solid 3rd place finish in the regular season of the Spring Split, LGD Gaming defeated OMG 3-0 in the Quarterfinals. After a 7th place finish in the regular season, OMG was able to defeat Master3 in the first round of playoffs but got knocked out by Vici Gaming after they lost to them 1-3. OMG was however able to have decent showings in the 2015 Demacia Cup - Summer Season. They finished 2nd after an 0-3 loss to EDward Gaming. They also got knocked out in the Semifinals of the 2015 Demacia Cup Grand Finals after a 1-3 loss to Invictus Gaming.
OMG wanted to keep their tradition of being an all Chinese team so they didn't bring in any Korean imports in 2016. Despite good performances in 2016 LPL Spring Season, OMG finished 5th in the group and had to play in the Summer Promotion tournament. They were able to easily re-qualify for the LPL with a win over Energy Pacemaker.All in a 3-0 sweep. Summer was a similar story for OMG as they once against finished at the bottom of their group and re-qualified for the LPL after defeating Saint Gaming 3-0 and Young Miracles 3-2 in the 2017 Spring Promotion Tournament. Cool left OMG in December of 2017 and joined Newbee
In the 2017 LPL Spring Season, Newbee finished 4th in their group with a 6-10 record. They went into the playoffs and defeated Invictus Gaming 3-1 in the first round. They however lost in the Quarterfinals with an 0-3 loss to EDG. In the 2017 LPL Summer Season LGD finished at the bottom of the standings with 4 wins and 12 losses. The team was able to retain its LPL spot in the Promotion Tournament.
