Team Vitality did the unthinkable when they defeated the defending LoL World Champions Gen.G in their first group stage match match at the 2018 Worlds.

Coming into any international League of Legends event, European and North American teams are usually seen as the underdogs when facing teams from South Korea’s LCK league.

That fact was amplified when Vitality, fielding a trio of rookies in Amadeu ‘Attila’ Carvalho, Jakub ‘Jactroll’ Skurzyński, and Daniele ‘Jiizuke’ di Mauro, were tasked with playing against Gen.G, an incredibly formidable opponent. 

Right out the gate, though, things weren’t looking too good for Vitality, as Gen.G got off to one of the best starts you could imagine with a 6-to-1 kill advantage after 13 minutes.

Despite the seemingly insurmountable deficit, Vitality never gave up and kept pace with Gen.G the rest of the way until finally winning a couple key team-fights before executing an exciting backdoor play inside the enemy base to secure the improbable win.

While the win was impressive and hype enough on its own considering it was this team’s first game of Worlds, the moment was even better on the Italian broadcast of the event.

As Gen.G’s Nexus was crumbling, the Italian commentators can be heard going absolutely crazy as they witness Jiizuke become the first Italian player in Worlds history to win a match.

There’s no telling how Vitality or Gen.G will fare throughout the rest of the competition, but there’s no denying the incredible nature of Vitality’s moment on Wednesday.

Riot dev responds to broken League damage bug with Ravenous Hydra

A Riot Games developer has responded to a bizarre bug in League of Legends, which is preventing the Ravenous Hydra from working with certain champions’ abilities in-game.

Riot Games introduced plenty of changes in the 2021 preseason patch such as completely revamping the League Item Shop and items to improve the game’s experience before Season 11 kicks off.

Ravenous Hydra is one of the items that has remained in League, but it received some updated stats amid the changes. The item still provides players with lifesteal, in the form of Omnivamp, but Riot has now removed the Crescent Active and added 20 Ability Haste in its place.

However, one thing that has not changed much is the item’s passive ability Cleave, which allows basic attacks and abilities to trigger extra damage, which varies based on the distance between targets.

Urgot's splash artLeague players called for a Ravenous Hydra fix after a glitch was found with champions like Urgot.

There are some champions with abilities that had unique interactions with this item, such as Aphelios’ Severum Q, but players have now noticed a bug, which stops it from working correctly with certain champions.

The issue was raised with League dev Riot Phlox, with one Redditor explaining that champions with multi-hit abilities, like Urgots W, Renekton W, and Warwick’s Ult seem to be where the problem lies.

Riot Phlox responded to the bug, revealing that they are now aware of the unusual damage glitch with Ravenous Hydra and that it would be passed on to the League Dev team.

“I’ll pass this along so we can make sure there are eyes on it, thanks!” the League dev responded, confirming they would soon be working on it.

However, he also revealed that he was unsure just when a fix might be issued for this broken damage bug, adding that they “can’t give a timeframe.”

While it is unclear when the patch will arrive in League of Legends, this will still come as good news to Urgot mains, and those who play similar champs, after they were quite vocal on this issue, as it will soon allow them to have more build options in-game.
