Nick "LS" Cesare

LS deactivates Twitter after harassment towards his grandmother

Furious T1 fans keep taking things a step further to show their frustrations, but it seems to have gotten way out of hand. 

Dedicated T1 fans are continuously harassing rumored new coach Nick “LS” Cesare, and that has reportedly extended to his grandmother as well. The anger from fans erupted after LS and former Starcraft player Choi “Polt” Seong-hun got rumored to be a part of the coaching staff for the 2021 season.  

People from the hardcore T1 fan group has been after LS ever since rumors started floating of him joining T1. LS is known as a popular LoL caster and analyst, but isn’t necessarily loved by all Korean fans despite catering to the region for years. It has resulted in online harassment that has now seemingly forced him to deactivate his Twitter account

Furthermore, Fnatic mid laner Tim “NemesisLipovšek recently said on stream that LS’s grandmother has also received harassment. His grandmother is a well-known voice from several of LS’ streams recently, where he tends to call her live to get her predictions for various professional matches.  

There is more to it than just the coaching staff though. The most hardcore T1 fans have been building up their frustrations throughout the season after the new T1 management is taking the organization in a new direction. Led by CEO Joe Marsh, T1 has focused a lot on the commercial side of the business by participating in more mainstream TV shows and doing big commercials and promotions. 

Some fans think that it has gotten out of hand and that the team's poor performance in the 2020 LCK Summer Split was a result of the players being too busy with PR responsibilities. 

What has also gotten out of hand is the way angry fans are expressing their frustrations. Currently, it seems to be doing more harm than good. Fans have also reportedly been sending funeral flower wreaths to the T1 headquarter as a message, and used a truck to carry angry messages towards T1 around Seoul. 

There is currently no official statement from LS or T1 on the matter, so for now, LS will likely be off the grid for the foreseeable future.
