100 Thieves have confirmed the fate of League of Legends ADC (Attack Damage Carry) player Cody ‘Cody Sun’ Sun.

The 21-year-old, formerly of Team Liquid, had been inactive on the team’s roster after being benched during the summer split playoffs for Richard ‘Rikara’ Samuel Oh which continued into Worlds, leaving the player with an uncertain future.

That uncertainty intensified when 100 Thieves signed two-time world champion, and former SK Telecom T1 ADC player, Bae ‘Bang’ Jun-sik on November 23.

After Worlds 2018, on November 8, Cody Sun – like many players – revealed via Twitter that he was exploring his options, but he did not know if he would be returning to the NA LCS for next season.

On November 28 100 Thieves announced that they have agreed to part ways with Cody Sun entirely – meaning the ADC is a totally free agent. The organization took to Twitter to thank him for his time with the team and to also confirm that the 21-year-old is now able to sign with whoever he sees fit. 

LoL esports/Riot Gaming FlickrCody Sun will be free to sign with any LoL team after a turmoil-filled end with 100 Thieves.

There have been rumours of the player following in the footsteps of former FlyQuest and 100T jungler Matthew ‘Meteos’ Hartman and swapping the black and red pinstripes of 100 Thieves for The Greenwall and OpTic Gaming.  

With OpTic looking to round out their roster for the upcoming season with an ADC player, Cody Sun would be a logical fit, especially given the fact that he has experience playing in the NA LCS and with Meteos.

  • Kim ‘Ssumday’ Chan Ho – Top Lane
  • Andy ‘AnDa’ Hoang – Jungle
  • Choi ‘Huhi’ Jae-hyun – Mid
  • Bae ‘Bang’ Jun-sik – ADC
  • Zaqueri ‘Aphromoo’ Black – Support

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.
