An expert League of Legends gamer has actually tested a banner to a cage suit, with the loser possibly readied to stop the game permanently.
Xie ‘symbol’ Tian-Yu, that has actually played in China’s League of Legends Pro League because 2015, had a current argument with banner Tian Huihui throughout a suit in the game’s Ranked Solo Queue, finishing with symbol providing an obstacle for Huihui to fulfill him in the Octagon.
That argument originated from symbol’s choice to play the personality Brand, a fire mage, throughout a game in which he was matched together withHuihui symbol required to the game’s center lane, a setting usually booked for magic-centric champs, however Brand’s duty has actually moved for many years to that of assistance. As an outcome, the choice shows up to have actually distressed Huihui, that made his annoyance clear via the game’s conversation function.
According to Sohu (opens up in brand-new tab) (converted using Google), the disagreement proceeded throughout the game till symbol at some point tested Huihui to an octagon cage battle.
