100 Thieves jungler Maurice ‘Amazing’ Stückenschneider has expressed his frustration with the team’s current performances in the LCS, labelling them as “terrible” and stating they need to improve quickly “before it’s too late.”

Amazing joined 100T at the start of the 2019 Summer Split, replacing Andy ‘AnDa’ Hoang after the team’s horrible Spring Split which saw them finish last in the league, winning just four of their 18 matches.

While many thought their Summer Split would likely see an improvement from the organization’s League of Legends squad, the team once again sits bottom of the LCS, finishing Week Two with no wins from any of their four games.

Riot GamesAmazing left Europe to compete for 100 Thieves.

Following their loss to Clutch Gaming on June 9, Amazing tweeted his frustrations at how the team were performing, stating that the team need to improve because the organization and its fans deserved better from them.

“I hate going on stage and losing, I hate playing and losing,” wrote the German. “I hate losing. Simple as that. No matter what mine or our former glory may portray, we are terrible right now, and we have to get things done quickly before it’s too late.”

Amazing continued: “Our responsibility to play and perform well goes well beyond just our own careers, and we have to start [taking] it seriously. 100 Thieves deserve better, our fans deserve better and – even if we ourselves make mistakes – our teammates deserve better.”

Following losses to CLG and OpTic Gaming in Week One, 100 Thieves struggles continued into Week Two as they were unable to beat MSI finalists Team Liquid.

Their match against Clutch Gaming did show some signs of improvement from the Spring Split, with 100T holding off Clutch for over 15 minutes as they bombarded their base, but were unable to push out and complete what would have been a remarkable turnaround as Clutch destroyed their Nexus.

While the team are in a difficult spot, Week Three does provide hope that their first win of the split could be on the horizon as they take on Echo Fox who sit on one win, and also square off against Golden Guardians.

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.
