League of Legends superstar Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok had some fun as he trolled a teammate during a charity match with Rick Fox. 

Faker is one of the most famous LoL players in the world, known for his incredible mechanics that helped his team secure back-to-back World Championship titles in 2015 and 2016.  

He has always remained cool and polite, even after a tough defeat, but couldn’t help himself after he noticed a teammate wasn’t moving in a charity match with Rick Fox and decided to subtly take a dig at them.

InvenGlobalFaker is one of LoL’s most popular players.

The SKT star was one of many special guests on Rick Fox’s 24-hour Champions for Charity stream – a broadcast aimed at raising money for the Bahamas relief Foundation.

They were playing a duo queue game and things were getting down to the wire with just a handful of inhibitors remaining, meaning the next fight would decide it all. Faker was attempting to organize the troops and pull off a quick Baron kill, but his jungler didn’t seem interested.

As the Canadian and Korean duo made their way to the topside river they noticed that their jungler, playing Nocturne, had stopped in his tracks. The usually calm and collect Faker was not impressed and had an unexpected reaction.

He panned back to the Nocturne and his face turned into a strange mix of amusement and disappointment, as he zoomed in on him and just watched for a moment. He didn’t say anything, but the intent was clear.

The chat erupted in laughter and question marks, dubbing the move as Faker’s polite way of flaming, which seemed very much like it could be.

They ended up losing the match, likely due to the fact it was a 4v5, but had at that point raised over $8000 for charity and showed off a new side of Faker, so really, it can be counted as a win.

In her second Twitch stream, AOC hilariously explained how experiencing Elo Hell in League of Legends helped her develop the patience required for being a congresswoman.

U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, affectionally known as AOC, has been open about how much she loves League of Legends in the past. The proud politician even stunned her fans and followers when she revealed she finally made Silver IV.

It might have been her first foray into the minds and hearts of gamers around the world, but it certainly wasn’t the last. In October, AOC made history when hundreds of thousands of viewers tuned in to watch her play Among Us on Twitch for the very first time.

AOC was so well-loved among streamers and viewers, they begged her to come back for a second stream. It finally happened on November 27, and it was as wholesome and entertaining as the first.

AOC’s first ever Among Us stream on Twitch was a smash hit.

At one point during the stream, Ryan ‘Northernlion’ Letourneau asked AOC an interesting question about her League of Legends experience and her response was both understandable and hilarious.

“Do you think having to keep your cool in League of Legends chat has helped your political career when it comes to maintaining some decorum in Congress?” asked Northernlion.

“Yeah, I think so,” said AOC. “Getting caught in Elo Hell really requires so much patience. I was playing with 12-year-olds… rage quitting five minutes into a game… so it really builds your patience.”

Elo Hell is a term used to describe situations where players and their rankings are dragged down due to incompetent and toxic teammates. It’s something League of Legends players know all too well, including AOC.

AOC has always managed to come across as down-to-earth. Still, it’s comforting and kind of funny to hear an esteemed congresswoman talk about something so relatable, especially to gamers.

Elo Hell in League of Legends is the absolute pits, but at least we now know it counts for something.
