If you ask Yuhao “Mouse” Chen, he’d probably tell you that not all stars are born, but rather they are forged. His run with EDG started in the bot lane as their starting support player. This didn’t last long though, as he was replaced by Meiko. He then rode the bench for over a year, but his competitive drive never left him and once the 2016 Summer Split started he was EDG’s starting top laner.
Any player could tell you that changing positions is one of the most difficult things to do in professional League of Legends, and they’d be right. Mouse didn’t let the daunting nature of the task deter him though, and he became a solid option in the top lane for EDG. His furious work ethic helped bring his team into the Quarterfinals of the 2016 World Championship, that he tragically had to leave due to the death of a family member. The fans have spoken, and they want to bring back Mouse for one final hurrah in 2016. The newly-minted top laner now has another shot to show the world how work ethic can crush pure talent.
