William “Meteos” Hartman is the hero Cloud9 deserves, but not the one they need right now. After stepping away from the scene, the former superstar jungler returned to lead the team’s new lineup to the 2016 World Championship. He led all NA junglers, and ranked third overall in the league, with a 6.7 KDA during the regular season.
His performance at Worlds was subject to ridicule, but Cloud9 was still the only North American team to make it out of the Group Stage. He’s moving aside once again in 2017, this time for the promising young jungler Contractz. So Meteos will sit on the bench. Because he can take it.
