The esports community is mourning the passing of former League of Legends professional player and streamer Maria “Remilia” Creveling. She died unexpectedly in her sleep on December 27 at the age of 24.
Remilia made history as the first woman to participate in the LoL Championship Series (LCS) when her team, Renegades, secured a spot in the North American tournament’s 2015 season.
Remilia made her mark in the LoL community with her stellar play using Morgana and Thresh — even earning accolades as one of the best Thresh players in North America.
Remilia first played professionally in 2013 as a member of Curse Academy, competing in the Challenger Series. She joined Renegades (then known as Misfits) in 2015, but left the team the following year citing harassment and stress as affecting her mental state.
She returned to professional play in late 2016 as a member of Kaos Latin Gamers in the Liga Latinoamerica (LLA) and later as a backup for LCS squad FlyQuest.
Her most recent appearance was at last month’s Twitch Rivals Team Draft event.
ONE Esports joins the gaming community in sending our deepest sympathies to Remilia’s family, friends, and fans.
