Tian "Meiko" Ye is the Support for EDward Gaming. He was formerly known under the ID "Mad".
Ye “Meiko” Tian is Edward Gaming’s support. Shortly after transferring from Rayunion he started out on the squad as a substitute, and then worked his way to the starting position with a combination of hard work and the ill-fortune of Mouse, their previous starter. However he got there, Meiko made a huge difference in the team because of his aggressive roaming and play-style, which luckily matched up with the rest of the teams play-style.
Known for his Annie and Thresh picks and plays, Meiko thrives when he’s able to set up engagements and catch enemies out for the rest of his team to dive on. It was this style of gameplay that allowed EDG to establish themselves as one of China’s top teams and take home the championship trophy at the 2015 Mid-Season Invitational. If Meiko catches you alone, you’ll find yourself hooked or stunned into oblivion, and EDG will capitalize on that advantage.
Meiko joined EDward Gaming as a substitute support player. At the time, EDG expected to run Mouse as their starting support. Mouse did not deliver the results EDG expected, going 0-2 to Snake in Week 2. In part because Mouse was transitioning from the mid lane, he had to catch up. His synergy with starting AD carry Deft also did not seem very high. In Week 3 of 2015 LPL Spring, Meiko played his first match with the team as starting support player against Invictus Gaming. EDG would 3-0 the week, picking up six map wins in total. Meiko's heavy roaming style suited the team, and they continued to improve. He received attention for his Annie and Thresh play in particular, following in the footsteps of Fzzf, EDG's previous support, noted for his engagements. EDG placed first in the regular spring season, only losing 4 games with Meiko in total. His most impactful supports were Annie, Janna, and Thresh for the split.
