IWillDominate slams LoL community over ‘forcing’ Yassuo-Trick2g drama

Popular Twitch streamer and former League of Legends pro Christian ‘IWillDominate’ Rivera has criticized the LoL community for creating drama between 100 Thieves’ ‘Yassuo’ and ‘Trick2g’ over team selection at Twitch Rivals.

The League of Legends community has been imploding this week over drama surroundings Twitch Rivals, one of the biggest streamer tournaments on the calendar. With many big personalities clashing, it’s only a matter of time before something arcs up.

This time around, it’s been sparked around Yassuo and Trick2g, two wildly popular streamers. The duo have played in Twitch Rivals together multiple times before, and were expected to team up together again come the next edition. 

However, Yassuo as a team captain ended up choosing Golden Guardians jungler Anthony ‘Hard’ Barkhovtsev over the Udyr one-trick, leading Reddit to believe there was some streamer drama brewing behind the scenes.

Twitter: TwitchEsportsYassuo and Trick2g played together at TwitchCon 2019.

But, according to IWillDominate and Locodoco on the Facecheck podcast, the entire saga has been overblown by Reddit. While the situation was completely avoidable, it’s not as big of a deal as people are making it out to be.

“Trick should have just been a f*cking captain, and Moe shouldn’t have told Trick that he was going to pick him,” said Locodoco. “He should have said “I see,” and then Trick should have been “oh he might not pick me, I should go be a captain.””

IWillDominate explained that while Yassuo and Trick2g are some of the biggest names in the community, that doesn’t mean they need to play together every tournament. Sometimes, streamers just want to play with their best friends.

“People make it seem like Trick is better friends with [Yassuo] when Hard is clearly closer with him,” he said. “Trick is just more popular so more people are just Trick fanboys, so no one gives a f*ck about Hard.

The ‘fallout’ over the drama has created an entirely chest of memes for fans to flick through, including calling Yassuo a Cassiopeia main for being a snake. However, IWillDominate believes the two streamers are apparently all cool behind the scenes, and that the public is just overblowing the entire saga.

“People are shaming Moe’s whole career over this, and I think that the community just wants to sh*t on content creators whenever they can,” he said.

“I can’t remember one popular content creator that has not got hard flamed by Reddit for some period of time.”

Twitter: HardYassuo picked Hard over Trick2g for his jungler in Twitch Rivals November 2019.

“It feels like the fans care more than Trick does. People don’t really care about the drama, they are just like “ooh, we get to sh*t on somebody now.””

Trick2g has said himself that he doesn’t feel too left out over it. While he gave up his captaincy to get a spot on Yassuo’s team and ended up without a spot in the tournament, he has tried to calm his fans down the best way he can — with memes.

“I didn’t lose a friend,” he said. “He might have made me feel bad, but it’s all good. I mean, that’s content for you guys, and it gives me content too.”

The next Twitch Rivals League of Legends Showdown starts on November 22.

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio is known for having the most followers out of any other creator on the viral video app — but it seems that reaching less than 100 million in a year isn’t quite cutting it for the social media star.

2020 has certainly been a wildly successful year for miss D’Amelio; she surpassed longtime TikTok queen Loren Gray in March, becoming the platform’s most popular content creator in the process.

However, her winstreak wasn’t over, by far: Charli skyrocketed from 41 million followers to 99 million by November, marking an unprecedented rise to fame for just about any influencer.

Despite being on the precipice of a TikTok record, it seems that Charli was hoping to score the coveted 100 million follower mark within a year of hitting one million. However, it seems that time has passed on, leaving her craving for more time.

She spoke about the situation during a YouTube video with makeup artist James Charles on November 16, where she appeared to jokingly complain about not reaching the coveted goal.

“I wish I had more time!” she exclaimed. “Imagine if I hit 100 mil a year after hitting a mil.”

“Was the 95 [million] not enough for you?” Charles joked.

“I was just saying like, even numbers,” Charli laughed, sticking out her tongue in the camera.

Dixie D’Amelio attempted to quickly end the video as if on cue, with Charli following suit, marking for a humorous end to a discussion that not many viewers found all too funny.

“It’s so stuck up to act like 95 million isn’t enough,” one commenter wrote of the conversation. “She should be happy, she has her whole life set for her.”

“She deserves to be humbled, I can’t stand her,” another chimed in.

“It’s very obviously a joke on James’s part, but still, she’s more famous at 16-17 than most people will ever be in their lifetimes,” another added. “And being a famous teen can inflate your ego something fierce.”

Charles has since spoken out about the situation and clarified that his question was, indeed, just a joke — but in spite of the obvious humor, Charli’s privileged position and follower comments are leaving more than a few critics a bit burnt.
