Apdo and the Tragedy of League's Shortest Professional Game

The shortest professional game in League of Legends history is a story of a charming outlaw, unrequited love, a heartfelt memorial and the bitter fury of a game developer scorned.

Jeon “Apdo” Sang-gil was once revered as one of the best League of Legends players in the world. He conquered solo queue, taking the top spot on the ladder in both Korea and China at the same time, playing four positions the whole time. But Apdo wasn’t trying to sign with a pro team, he was Elo boosting.

  • Dopa vs Faker is Like Sasuke vs Naruto

  • 1:37 that was an awful cut, we all heard he said worlds

  • the only player that nearly match faker

  • such talent should be on dota

  • imagine getting ban with 1000 years for not being a simp!

  • 2:48 갈리오(X) -> 가렌 ;;

  • Why is it always a woman. That destroys a mans potential….

  • Free dopa

  • I consider abdo to be the greatest mid laner ever think about he is the man that discovered perfect wave control

  • my boy got banned for 1000 years for not being a SIMP! fucking legend

  • WTF…This is literally "Suits" for League of Legends…

  • I hate Riot

  • Everyone gangsta untill you see him login in 3013

    The whole thing about the girl exposing dopa is just a whole bitches ain’t shit situation

  • Apdo would even Smurf in worlds finals lel

  • the last statment was such a blow… "just a guy playing league of legends with a plate full of money".
    he reached his goal and destination: becoming the best soloq player of all time. that guy is not just some guy

  • Elo booster gets worse punishment cuz they take money prolly. But the elo boosting buyer. I hope she gets punished for it too. But prolly was absolved for ratting out an elo booster in.

  • damn this vid is almost as long as the team dark game

  • He is what you call
    Uncrowned King

  • Tragedy? The guy has more money than 500 of us will have in our entire life, just eloboosting and streaming xd

  • He is the greatest

  • It’s so typical that this greedy company doesn’t like it when other people make money through boosting or any other way

  • Your narrative is trash.

  • He stream tft now :>

  • riots attitude towards players is just complete shit

  • Meanwhile that midget tyler 1 can run it down and ruin games for people and still get riots praises. While this genuinely good player gets banned that long for elo boosting.

    Fucking hate riot so god damn much

  • 💯t apto???????

  • This comment section is like incel galore

  • He's still the greatest midlaner (and the greatest player) of all time. Fakers got nothing on this guy

  • Permission to share your vid on facebook.

  • 4:40 dafuq u mean was he's still the best midlaner in my eyes
