Voyboy responds after Doublelift calls him out for praising “toxic” Tyler1

TSM star Yilliang ‘Doublelift’ Peng has criticized Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani over his support for Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp’s jungle-only challenge in League of Legends.

Tyler1 recently achieved the prestigious challenger rank in his Jungle-only challenge, after declaring it the easiest role in League of Legends Season 10. He bet against fellow streamers that he could level an unranked account up to the top of the region, despite normally playing as a bot laner.

After a couple of months of playing, Tyler1 finally completed the challenge. However, when Twitch star Voyboy congratulated Tyler1 on his achievement in the new role, LCS veteran Doublelift was quick to respond, revealing some of his issues with the popular LoL content creators.

During his May 29 Twitch broadcast, Doublelift explained that, while he was impressed with Tyler1’s latest climb, he felt as if Voyboy was acting “hypocritical” for showing his friend support following his recent complaints.

“Tyler’s challenger thing is pretty cool, I thought it was pretty funny that Voyboy retweeted him though,” the star ADC revealed, before calling out the two popular LoL personalities.

Doublelift highlighted that Voyboy has been quite vocal about the state of Solo Queue matches in NA and has made multiple videos addressing the issues and calling on Riot to make some changes.

“Voy is the one who’s like, ‘League Solo Q people leave and troll, they’re really toxic, its the worst it’s ever been’,” he explained before labeling Tyler1 as a prime example of toxicity in Solo Q.

“Why are you praising the guy who’s extremely toxic and embodies what you hate in Solo Q” he continued, “which is people who leave, [intentionally feed], and everything you’re talking about. It’s super hypocritical.”

Voyboy later responded to Doublelift’s comments on stream claiming that he has called Tyler1 out in the past over his behavior and that he does not support all of his actions.

“You have to understand that I have called out Tyler before […] I don’t just blindly support Tyler because he’s my long time friend,” he responded, “You can’t say that me celebrating the accomplishment of one of my friends is the same.”

Voyboy added that while Tyler1 has gotten better over the years, he felt as if some of the criticism he got for his Tweet was unfair, explaining, “I’m legitimately proud of Tyler, he’s still my friend even if he does stuff that I don’t approve of. I don’t think that makes me a hypocrite.”

Tyler1 has still yet to respond to any of the comments made by Doublelift and Voyboy and has not streamed on Twitch since doubling down on the challenge earlier in the month.

Riot dev responds to broken League damage bug with Ravenous Hydra

A Riot Games developer has responded to a bizarre bug in League of Legends, which is preventing the Ravenous Hydra from working with certain champions’ abilities in-game.

Riot Games introduced plenty of changes in the 2021 preseason patch such as completely revamping the League Item Shop and items to improve the game’s experience before Season 11 kicks off.

Ravenous Hydra is one of the items that has remained in League, but it received some updated stats amid the changes. The item still provides players with lifesteal, in the form of Omnivamp, but Riot has now removed the Crescent Active and added 20 Ability Haste in its place.

However, one thing that has not changed much is the item’s passive ability Cleave, which allows basic attacks and abilities to trigger extra damage, which varies based on the distance between targets.

Urgot's splash artLeague players called for a Ravenous Hydra fix after a glitch was found with champions like Urgot.

There are some champions with abilities that had unique interactions with this item, such as Aphelios’ Severum Q, but players have now noticed a bug, which stops it from working correctly with certain champions.

The issue was raised with League dev Riot Phlox, with one Redditor explaining that champions with multi-hit abilities, like Urgots W, Renekton W, and Warwick’s Ult seem to be where the problem lies.

Riot Phlox responded to the bug, revealing that they are now aware of the unusual damage glitch with Ravenous Hydra and that it would be passed on to the League Dev team.

“I’ll pass this along so we can make sure there are eyes on it, thanks!” the League dev responded, confirming they would soon be working on it.

However, he also revealed that he was unsure just when a fix might be issued for this broken damage bug, adding that they “can’t give a timeframe.”

While it is unclear when the patch will arrive in League of Legends, this will still come as good news to Urgot mains, and those who play similar champs, after they were quite vocal on this issue, as it will soon allow them to have more build options in-game.
