Various members in the League of Legends community have at one time or another been the victim of a surprise queue pop that they didn’t make in time, and one dev has finally created a tool to prevent that from happening again.

Aside from what happens in actual League of Legends matches, one of the most frustrating aspects comes from being booted from a lobby simply for not making it back to the client on time.

Moreover, the anxiety of not knowing when a match will pop leaves players in a perpetual guessing game that can heavily restrict someone’s ability to take breaks, go to the bathroom, check up on something, etc.

In a Reddit post, user ‘molenzwiebel’ introduced the saving grace for many players with their new Mimic tool which “is essentially the League (pregame) client for your phone.”

“I created a fully working pregame client for your phone!” molenzwiebel said. “Accept invites, get into queue, pick champions and more!”

The tool works by downloading Conduit on the desktop, after opening up the League of Legends client the program will “start listening.” The tool will create a code for the player that they will then use on their phone’s browser to connect to Mimic and letting them control the game from mobile devices.

“By installing a lightweight bridge on your desktop,” molenzwiebel said. “You can accept queue, pick champions and get into game anywhere. Imagine accepting queue while on the shitter, checking the mail or getting something to drink!”

It seems Mimic can be an incredibly helpful tool for League of Legends players as it lets Summoners do everything from creating a new lobby, hover over champs in champ select, ban/pick a character, see the other team’s picks, and so much more.

Can Mimic get an account banned?

According to molenzwiebel, the developer has gone through proper lengths for the tool to be approved by “both the general Riot Developer policies and the League Client development policies.” Further noting that they “made sure to get explicit approval for both the promo site and the actual application, so [players] should be good to go.”

As an added measure for peace of mind, molenzwiebel says that the app is fully end-to-end encrypted to give more protection for players’ privacy.

While the developer says they are still working on Mimic’s bugs and kinks to perfect it, the tool is already shaping up to be a favorite among League of Legends players.

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.
