Austin "Gate" Yu brings his unshakeable optimism to Echo Fox in 2017. After making his debut with Team Impulse in 2015, Gate eventually played some mid lane for the playoff-bound squad. He spent the 2016 NA LCS Summer Split as a member of Phoenix1, where he helped lead the team on a second half surge to avoid relegation.
He'll look to act as the glue that holds Echo Fox's new lineup together in the 2017 NA LCS. With only two returning members from last year's team, Echo Fox might need a lot of that glue. But never tell Gate the odds -- that just makes him more determined to succeed.
