Last weekend, Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins ended his League Of Legends Twitch stream in the weirdest of ways - although irritated over the unlucky events of his matches, he ended up calmly and quietly stopping the stream with next to no notice.
Ninja has been focusing his efforts into climbing the ranked tiers of the multiplayer online battle arena title, which has the potential to bring a player to the highest highs and the lowest lows. You might associate Ninja with Fortnite before you'd match him up with League Of Legends, but the Twitch star dabbles in Valorant, Dead By Daylight, Among Us, Minecraft, and Call Of Duty: Warzone. According to Twitch Tracker, he has sunk over 400 hours into League Of Legends on stream, and he managed to reach Gold in Season 11. However, as plenty of League Of Legends players know, it's one heck of a task to break through into the next tier regardless of your innate skill.
Viewers sympathised as he couldn't shift himself into Platinum despite his dedication, yet, the grind finally paid off as he reached Platinum 4 earlier this month. His commitment to the game was revitalised, and he pressed onwards in more ranked matches last weekend... until it all came crashing down. The stream was wobbling a little as Ninja encountered some poor luck in his games and his stress levels started to rise. He chose the attack damage carry (or ADC) role with Tristana and a support Karma to counter the enemy team's Jinx and Pantheon double.
Unfortunately, Karma was eliminated early on in the match, offering the enemy team an advantage that they had to capitalise upon. Pantheon directed his attention onto Tristana and Ninja had no choice but to surrender his farm to the tower. On the next go, Ninja pushed up into the opposing bot lane but was surprised by Rammus, and once again, eliminated with ease. This is when it became too much for the streamer to bear.
Without a word on his defeat, Ninja left the match and closed the game in one fell swoop. "Alright, guys, I hope you enjoyed the stream," he said, theatrically yawning, stretching and cracking his knuckles while smiling grimly. "I'm going to get off and relax for the day." Well, it's certainly one way to rage-quit a stream. Parcel up that anger and irritation into a box, and then put that box inside another box, and then mail that box to yourself, and then smash it with a hammer! Ahem. Ninja has been back on League Of Legends, so perhaps there's something in this understated approach to anger management.
