  • It hit the player Rayan “Sniper” Shoura, a 17-year-old Canadian. The young man plays for 100 Thieves on the top lane in the LCS.
  • Sniper was considered a LoL prodigy: Even at 12, Sniper was a number 1 challenger. He made headlines in 2020 because Cloud9 illegally signed him as a 14-year-old – they weren't allowed to do that.
  • But when he was 15, he got a contract with 100 Thieves and made a name for himself in the youth team by winning 17 games in a row. He has been allowed to play with the professionals since November 2023.
