Johnny "Altec" Ru is a Canadian League of Legends player, currently the AD Carry for Echo Fox.

Biography

Johnny "Altec" Ru was born on May 8th, 1997 in Vancouver, British Columbia. Ru began playing video games at the age of 8, starting with Runescape, Maplestory, and other MMORPG games. League of Legends was his first MOBA game.

Career History

Altec's first competitive team was vVv Gaming, which he joined in April 2012 and then left in August. In January 2013, Altec became the AD carry for Curse Academy, where he stayed until July of the same year, and in October 2013 he was announced as a substitute for Team SoloMid.[1] Though he never played as a starter for the team, the position helped grow his presence in the scene, and he became known as one of the stronger up-and-coming players.

2014 Season

In December 2013, Altec joined The Walking Zed, replacing former AD carry bobbyhankhill. Altec stayed with the team through their acquisition by Cloud9, but when they failed to qualify for the LCS summer split, the team disbanded in May. Later that month, he joined Evil Geniuses as their starting AD carry, replacing yellowpete starting in the second game of the summer split.

2015 Season

Prior to the start of the Spring Split, Evil Geniuses rebranded itself as Winterfox. Altec played with them for the entire split; however, he switched to support for week 7, while their coach Paragon started as their mid laner. The team finished in eighth place with a 7-11 record, forced into relegations. Given the choice between playing against Team Dragon Knights and Team Fusion, Winterfox chose the former, despite their higher placement in the Challenger playoffs. Due to starting mid laner Kyle leaving the team prior to the tournament, TDK started Alex Ich in mid lane, and Winterfox lost the series 1-3 and sending them to the Challenger series. Altec left the team and joined Gravity, replacing Cop to rejoin the LCS for the summer split.[2] In the split's regular season, Gravity finished each week in at worst fourth position, even holding sole possession of first place for weeks 7 and 8; however, they lost both of their games in the final week and ended the season in fourth, after a tiebreaker loss to Team Impulse. In the playoff quarterfinals, Gravity lost to Team SoloMid, leaving them with a year-long total of 30 Championship Points, and qualifying for the regional finals in fifth place. They lost immediately in the gauntlet, reverse swept by first-round opponent Cloud9, who went on to qualify to Worlds.

2016 Season

Altec left Gravity and joined a new North American team, NRG, who purchased Team Coast's NA LCS seed. NRG started the LCS strong, tied for either first or second place through the first four weeks, but after the fifth week they fell down to fifth place and remained there for the rest of the season. They were eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.
