I'm sorry this is just stupid. I'm glad the kid is ok, but don't base your god damn livelihood on a god damn game.

This whole situation screen dumbassory on so many different angels on so many different people. This coach guy should be arrested for fraud and psychological assault.

The thing is, his career was playing LoL. That's all he had. He is poor and so is his family. Also he's really good at LoL so to lose the chance to be pro must be horrible. So by having these games thrown, he's thrown away his chance at a career/better life. He's complied with illegal match-fixing which likely results in jail time and an even harder road out of poverty.

Suicide isn't the answer but I'm just trying to provide some perspective on why he tried because LoL is much more than just a game to him and pros alike.

You're glad he survived a 12 story fall? I wouldn't wish that pain on my worst enemy.

When gaming is your job, your damn right they take it seriously. As do americans that do the same thing.
