"Apollo" (Real Name: Apollo Price) is an American League of Legends player, currently an ADC for Echo Fox. Also known as WizFujiiN.

Biography

Formerly known as WizFujiin, Apollo has been a professional player since early 2013. His first major exposure to the NA LCS was when he joined Team Coast for the Spring Split of 2014. The team did make it to the playoffs but was quickly eliminated by Team Dignitas. They were then relegated after a loss to Complexity Black in the Summer Promotion tournament.

Apollo would then go on to bounce around teams both inside and outside of the NA LCS. Having a reputation for being a very stable player, the biggest criticism for Apollo was that he would never lose a game but he could never carry a game. His time on Team EnVyUs served to counter that argument as he formed a very underrated duo lane with fellow support Hakuho. The two would eventually join the newly formed Clutch Gaming following the NA LCS' franchising.

Career History

2014 Season

WizFujiiN played with Coast in the 2014 NA LCS Spring Split, but after a 6th-place finish sent them to the relegations once again, they were eliminated from the LCS by compLexity.Black, losing 3 games to 1. WizFujiiN later left the team. He briefly played with GamesterGear before attempting to qualify for the LCS once again.

2015 Preseason

With teammates Flaresz, Thinkcard, Yusui, and KEITHMCBRIEF on Team LoLPro, WizFujiiN qualified for the Spring Expansion Tournament via the ranked 5's ladder. The team beat Team Fission in the first round 2-0 but then lost 0-2 to Team Coast in the second round.

WizFujiiN joined Team Impulse on December 31st, 2014.[1] He renamed to Apollo, adopting his first name for his ID.

2015 Season

After using Rhux as a substitute for Impact in the first week, Team Impulse finished the round robin with an 11-7 record, in fourth place. In the playoffs, they defeated Gravity before losing to Team SoloMid and then Team Liquid, placing fourth overall. In the summer season, Team Impulse started shakily, placing no higher than sixth through the end of the fifth week. Starting in the sixth week, the team went on a massive winning streak, which was almost able to continue through two roster changes: first, support Adrian sat out one game and was replaced by Gate; and second, mid laner XiaoWeiXiao was suspended pending an investigation into Elo boosting prior to the ninth week, prompting Adrian to return and Gate to move back to his primary role of mid lane to replace XiaoWeiXiao. This temporary suspension was eventually lengthened to a competitive ban until February 2016. Regardless, Team Impulse finished the last week tied for third place with Gravity and then won their tiebreaker game.

In the summer playoffs, the team beat Dignitas 3-0 before losing to both Counter Logic Gaming and Team Liquid to finish fourth, leaving them with the second-place spot in the Regional Final due to Championship Points. There, they became the second team in a row to fall to underdogs Cloud9 in a reverse sweep and so fell short of the World Championship.
