League of Legends analyst Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare had some hard words for 100 Thieves over their decision not to play Cody Sun at the World Championship.

100 Thieves have recently come under heavy criticism for their performance at Worlds, and their lack of communication regarding certain decisions.

One of those decisions was to leave former starting AD Carry Cody Sun on the bench, instead fielding rookie ‘Rikara’ for all six of their group stage games.

100T came under fire not only because many considered Cody Sun the stronger player, but also because they didn’t give him a game after the team was already mathematically eliminated from the tournament.

LS echoed those sentiments during a recent stream, hitting out at the organization for not giving Cody Sun a chance to play on the biggest stage League of Legends has to offer.

“He better have like fucking killed someone or something. I think that’s fucking ridiculous. When you’re out of contention and you don’t give the player a game, there’s something fucking wrong with you.”

In a recent interview, 100 Thieves head coach Neil ‘Prolly’ Hammad touched on the topic but didn’t reveal why Cody Sun had been left on the bench, instead explaining why the organization had not made a public statement on the matter.

“No matter what it’s going to be not completely truthful, because it’s only my perspective or only the organization’s perspective, and then there’s no benefit to it because it doesn’t change how the outcome is. It would only be like airing dirty laundry.”

Prolly also states that revealing details on the topic would cause a “competition” between the version of events as seen by the organization and the player. While fans might enjoy the drama, Prolly says that’s not something those involved want.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
