Twitch streamer DisguisedToast demonstrated a Teamfight Tactics strategy that allows Lucian to deal immense amounts of damage.

DisguisedToast is best known as a top streamer and player in Hearthstone, but since the release of Teamfight Tactics he’s also established himself as one of the best players in the League of Legends-based autobattler, finishing second in Pokimane’s TFT tournament.

During a recent stream, he showed of a strategy which sees a level two Lucian as the primary carry champion, stacked up with two Statikk Shivs and a Blade of the Ruined King.

Each Statikk Shiv causes every third attack to deal splash damage to nearby enemy champions as well as his primary target, while the Blade of the Ruined King makes Lucian count as a Blademaster.

It’s not just the items that this strategy relies on, however, as the trait bonuses of the composition also empower Lucian. With four Gunslingers on the field, Lucian has a 50% chance of also attacking every enemy in range with each shot.

Meanwhile, the Blade of the Ruined King means Lucian benefits from the Blademaster bonus, with the three in the composition meaning that Blademasters have a 35% chance on hit of performing an additional attack.

The result of all of these bonuses stacked together is that Lucian unleashes a maelstrom of damage on all targets in range, annihilating the enemy team and dealing a mindblowing 7518 damage in just a few seconds.

This match did take place on the Public Beta Environment (PBE) as DisguisedToast was testing out upcoming content, so some of the numbers may differ slightly from the current live servers, although it doesn’t rely on anything that’s not already in the game.

As with any strategy that relies on stacking items on a particular champion, this approach does require a certain degree of luck when it comes to drops or carousel picks, with each Statikk Shiv being made up of a Recurve Bow and Tear of the Goddess, while the Blade of the Ruined King demands a B.F. Sword and a Spatula, one of the rarer basic items.

The strategy also leans heavily on the Gunslinger and Blademaster trait bonuses, so you’ll also need an appropriate composition to pull it off, meaning it’s likely to be more of a situational tactic than something you can reliably aim for.

This isn’t the only example of a strategy built around a single hyper-carry, with fellow streamer Scarra recently demonstrating an approach that involves stacking items on Akali to allow her to one-shot multiple enemies at a time.

Teamfight Tactics is still very much in its infancy, and players are still figuring out the best ways to play it, but it seems there are a variety of ways to empower individual champions for massive amounts of burst damage.

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.
