First Female Pro League of Legends Player Leaves Her Team

Remilia, the first ever pro female League of Legends player and the first ever transgender pro player, is leaving her team, Renegades. While there has been no official announcement from the team, Remi posted on Twitter saying goodbye and thanking her fans.

Remi has not said anything specifically about why she decided to leave, but she has posted many times in the past about wrestling with the anxiety of playing in front of crowds. Just a few days ago, she tweeted that she wasn’t sure if she’d ever be able to be comfortable playing on stage.

Besides dealing with anxiety, Remi has also had to deal with a lot of harassment. As many women who play games experience, people target her and criticize her looks and her performance, solely because of her gender.

Remi and her team became pro after their win in August of 2015 in the Challenger Series. She played support, and was the most well-known for playing Thresh. Her fans are sad to see her go, and have posted a thank you thread on the Renegades Reddit Page.
