A League of Legends player accidentally turned an incredible base defense into an epic fail after accidentally removing the defenders from their nexus.

The team were on the cusp of defending their nexus with a tiny percentage of health and claiming the win for themselves, but an unfortunate decision by Ryze player ‘Alkesh Immo’ threw the game away.

The red team were perhaps a single hit or two away from victory when the blue team managed to secure the kills they needed to defend. Only the enemy Zoe – ‘Starlord Glimmer’, who recorded the moment – survived, and was zoned away from the nexus.

In their eagerness to complete the ace, the Ryze player threw down their ultimate ability, Realm Warp, in an attempt to close the distance between the defenders and their final enemy.

Unfortunately, the location that the Realm Warp began – immediately in front of the nexus – meant that not only did it teleport the defending champions, but also the defending minions. In the sudden absence of any obstruction, the red teams minions simply walked up and won the game.

Realm Warp’s ability to carry minions as well as players can be a key part of its functionality, with the ultimate sometimes used to speed up sieges by moving in reinforcements much quicker. It seems in this instance, however, the Ryze player failed to consider them in their pursuit of the kill – which they also weren’t able to secure before the game ended.

The mistake is made all the greater by the fact that at the time, the blue team’s Yasuo was on the cusp of securing victory themselves, uncontested at the enemy nexus on the opposite side of the map. All the blue team had to do was stand in their base and wait for him to secure the win.

While being an amusing and unusual end to a game, the moment also offers a lesson that many players could undoubtedly learn from – sometimes, it’s not all about the kills.

After the departure of star LoL player Rekkles from the Fnatic bot lane, the black and orange LEC Gods have finally announced his replacement: Astralis’ Upset. 

The LEC has certainly seen a shake up this year. With Luka ‘Perkz’ Perković leaving to join Cloud9 across the pond, a spot on the G2 roster opened up.

This was quickly filled by Martin ‘Rekkles’ Larssen, the former face of Fnatic, the team’s fans were wondering who would be his replacement. It’s big shoes to fill considering the legacy that Rekkles has left in the Fnatic jersey, so who has chosen to step up to the plate?

With LEC fans debating between Elias ‘Upset’ Lipp and Juš ‘Crownshot’ Marušič the race was on to see who Fnatic would sign.

Fnatic sign Astralis ADC Upset

When Crownshot announced that he would not be playing in any League of Legends tournament this year, fans were pretty certain that Upset would be the future ADC for the black and orange legends.

Therefore, when Fnatic announced Upset as ADC earlier today fans may not have been shocked, but they’re certainly excited to know who hold the future of the Fnatic botlane.

Upset has been a constantly high performing player ever since his days with Schalke 04. Taking what many believed to be a step up when he joined Origen (now Astralis) last season, Origen’s disappointing performance in the second split meant that roster readjustments were clearly needed.

With the ADC position being the least of Origen’s worries, it was pretty clear that Upset would be looking for a more competitive team to carve out his future with.

Will he be able to challenge the dynasty that Rekkles has left in his wake, or will he forever be caught in the Swedish legend’s shadow? Only time will tell, but we know Upset’s going to work extra hard to make his name sit side by side with the former Fnatic bot laner.
