Popular League of Legends’ Autobattler mode ‘Teamfight Tactics.’

Riot unleashed their Teamfight Tactics Autobattler mode in mid-June, giving a breath of fresh air to their classic battle arena title League of Legends – but it seems that a unique bug might be overturning the competition.

This particular glitch occurs during Teamfight Tactics’ initial shared draft round, allowing players to bug into the golden circle and pick their Champion from the middle carousel ahead of everyone else, ultimately giving them better priority for a top pick.

The bug can be achieved by clicking inside of the circle right as the match begins, giving users a leg up on the opposition: a “tactic” that Pokimane employed during a stream on July 9.

“I did it!” she exclaimed after pulling off the glitch. “It’s so I get pick earlier before everyone else. I’m so good at this game, dude! I’ve done this bug so many times.”

While Pokimane was amused at being able to exploit the glitch, commenters across the net were divided on the morality of the situation, with some arguing that she is effectively cheating by abusing the bug.

“This is why we can’t have nice things,” another said. “At every turn, you try to take advantage over the others. Pathetic.”

However, some viewers argue that the bug is free game until developers fix the issue, with some even claiming that abuse will give developers more data on the glitch to better resolve the matter.

“…You can sit there and say ‘don’t use bugs, it’s cheating’ all day, but at the end of the day in a competitive environment, players will use all of their resources to secure the win, including exploits,” one user wrote.

Some viewers noted the unfairness with which Pokimane is treated regarding her gameplay, pointing out that if Forsen had used such a glitch, he would be praised for it.

Pokimane has yet to address her use of the bug via her social media accounts as of the publication of this article.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
