League of Legends shot caller and support player Zaqueri ‘Aphromoo’ Black appeared to let himself die in a crucial match vs TSM, to the bemusement of viewers.

100 Thieves’ League of Legends roster have a tough weekend during week 7 of the LCS as they face off against two of the top teams in their region, Cloud9 and TSM.

Only a few weeks out from Spring Playoffs, 100 Thieves find themselves in a race for their spot in St Louis, Missouri and after a tough loss vs TSM, this only makes that run a lot harder to pull off.

RIOTGAMES100 Thieves sit at last place in the LCS with a 4-9 record.

100 Thieves have dramatically declined after placing 9-12th at the League of Legends World Championship in early November and currently sit in the last place in the LCS with a 4-9 record, despite the addition of two-time world champion and former SKT player Bae “Bang” Jun-sik.

However, it was Bang’s bot-lane duo Aphromoo who made the blunder in the longest match of the Spring split vs TSM.

During this clip, Aphromoo can be seen standing still in a jungle bush despite being spotted by TSM’s Mid-laner Bjergsen with the aid of the Scryer’s Bloom, a jungle plant which grants a sweeping cone of vision for a brief period for whoever destroys it.

Many are speculating that Aphromoo might have been calling shots around the map and looked away from his current position which led to him being caught out by Bjergsen. This mistake may have been costly however, as TSM brought the game back and claimed victory despite a strong early game from 100 Thieves.

100 Thieves will need to be flawless during the rest of regular season to be in with a good chance to compete at the Chaifetz Arena for Spring Playoffs and potentially earn their way to the Rift Rivals or Mid Season Invitational events.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
