Banned, Trolled, Held Hostage: One Streamer's War With Solo Queue

by devaccess

TF Blade is one of the biggest League streamers on Twitch. He averages over 10k viewers, annihilating his competition with champions like Irelia and Jax.

Before he was the king of solo queue, TF Blade was a normal high school student, trying to convince his parents to let him pursue a career in esports. But after his pro plans fell through, he spent his remaining time trying to hit rank one in every region.

Is it as good as dota 2 tho?

l thetuerkgamer March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

That has always been the thing about TFBlade for me.
I can respect his ambition. What he has accomplished is simply amazing.
But sometimes, he acts towards the other players he plays with ingame with so little respect that I feel he needed that reality check in Korea.

Try sea server next?

Empty Void March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Apparently SEA isnt a server

These 2d games like dota or lauge of legends take no skill you don’t need to aim just click on the enemies

Anthony Stone March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Person types bad words

Terry Qiu March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

“Definitely not acceptable” is bullshit, if blade had made his own account or just bought one illegally in Korea, and he said the same stuff, no one would care, it’s just a bad excuse for double standards and a over sensitive outsider culture that has rooted from uzi’s inning last year

Luis Yeah March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

When it comes to LoL's World, "Turkish Server" Means Garbage.
It's not a offense to the country, but the region is toxic and unskilled.

Zer0Diamonds March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Props for tf blade for climbing all the way in the shittiest lane, top lane 😆

Dimitris mg March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Syn Thensia March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

He almost got to challengers korea but yeah. He got banned hahaaha

Reinhard Or Die Trying March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

riot korea is racist, simply put, it might be the second most toxic server in the world (next to euw) but the korean players wont get banned for the same behaviour.

HeHeHeHi -. March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

I dont think people realize how good he is. He just gives orders on what he best believes can let them win, then some butthurt eu player calls him toxic cuz he isnt carrying, like wtf

CPCH March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

I cant believe this comments, too many snow flakes hahahhahahaa

Inters : nothing

Type words: ban

Typing words dont make lose the game.

Inters actually make you lose the game.

Changue my mind.

Rero March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

I hate TF Blade. For how much of a cocky prick he is.

Shannon Felini March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

You guys are normally on the money with these but you can't make it out like TF is some innocent kid, he's one of the most toxic streamers…

stephen borja March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Justice for the blade

Mariglen Daut March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Lets all forget that he was so toxic and annoying to play with that korean pros started dodging him lol

Sasaki Kirihara March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Can someone link me the vod for the rushlol part? Id like to see the longer version ngl

Justadud March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Wait so why do the Koreans care they are toxic as shit they might not say it to your face but I play with my Korean friend and he talks with the Korean players on our team and they are always talking shit about people who are not Korean

Dylan Hurley March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Not allowed to shit talk in China PepeLaugh

Vladi Minderlen March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

i like him
i watch him
he deserved the koraea ban

William Hobbs March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

People don't understand the culture difference in Korea compared to other places. Flaming and toxicity is completely unacceptable and you can get fined for it, which is why you need a South Korean ID to play the game. Here in EUW or NA it's accepted but doing it in Korea will lead to a lot of players hating you, which is what happened to TF Blade. Players such as Ruler would dodge deliberately to avoid him as he was that disliked. I personally don't think flaming is a big deal – I don't flame myself – because the mute button exists and I don't have a fragile ego but it's an offence in Riot's rules and TF Blade just wouldn't stop flaming wherever he went and so he was punished fairly.

Evan Doyle March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Love how there's a copy of The Stand just in frame on the right. Nice touch.

Chloe Ware March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

The thing is that TF Blade has been racist and toxic in the past. He just doesn't care and you can't do that kind of thing on a Riot Account at all.

Matthew March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

When I moved to Korea I thought it would be less toxic but in low elo it’s so much more toxic than past regions. Plus they are super xenophobic and if you type any English they go off. More instances of afks and international feeding here as well. They don’t seem to clean up low elo with the same rules they have held tf blade to so I think unjust even though he is a streamer and that’s why were strict but should have been temporary ban.

Lundberg March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Has he ever ended a season as rank 1 tho?

musicalcacti March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Want to climb? Mute all

Marshmallow Assassin March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Can you do something on ChipSa next?

Edit: at least at some point, as he is actually supposed to play soon

The Jezus March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

So 100% Barry Sanders is my favorite player in any sport because he was quiet and great. I also realize that competitive games get you excited. That said, this is a kid who is better than you. Eat a giant C word and let him play. The best players are the best players and seriously F these companies that want you to be nice. Michael Jordan always said the right thing right? Stop being pussies. Ok 👌

dingdong0810 March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

korean server is very strict about any kind of verbal abuse because kr server used to be very toxic.(junglers mom died every match)

truman March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

appreciate you guys still releasing videos and working during this time

Ionis 64 March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

too bad hes a bad person. Like if this video was trying to paint him in a semi good light that says alot.

Ethan Trades March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

TFblade KEKW

Rey L March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

eh he is toxic, the ban in korea probably wasn't warranted but the kids a total rager

CornArmy March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

Ay guess Turkey players of League are assholes

Bobby Corwen March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

I agree that he's good and devoted, however he is also extremely toxic and self-centered in game. It's fine if he wants to lash out on his stream, but he's ruining other people's enjoyment of the game.

Foster Griffin March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

The funny thing is that server is so toxic. If blade just didn't use english swear words he's fine. Fuck is a flagged word in KR…

Behomie March 31, 2020 - 8:58 am

We're really out here defending toxic pros. Too many pros are allowed to talk shit just because they are part of the scene.
