Darth Meteos Executes Order 66, Takes Down Cloud 9
Darth Meteos, Bizarro Meteos, whatever you want to call it, it was strange to see the former Cloud 9 jungler in a Phoenix 1 jersey playing against his former team. Like Durant in a G-State uniform, or Edwin Encarnacion in an Indians cap, some images take a while to get used to.
Meteos was a crucial member of a C9 team that dominated North America upon their arrival in the NALCS. Sure he wasn't great in his final split with C9, nor was he great in P1's series against Team Envy (although he did steal the game-winning baron).
He was however superb against his former team. He appeared adept on the newer meta power pick in Rengar and was comfortable on the throwback Olaf as shown in this video by Myrdin.
Meteos was a combined 10/6/14 in two games as Phoenix 1 went 2-0 on the week. Against Cloud 9, Meteos looked like his old self. He was aggressive and played the carry style that he was famous for when he first broke into the scene. Still, the most touching thing was Meteos and Sneaky's adoration of each other that was displayed in a post-game interview on stage.
Meteos was traded to Phoenix 1 after Inori, who had been performing quite well to date had to leave the team for personal issues. It's unclear as to what P1's plans are when Inori returns but Meteos is definitely back on the pro play radar regardless.
