Riot Games Sued for “Striker Lucian” Skin Resemblance

Edgar Davids is a former Dutch professional footballer who played as a midfielder for many years and for many clubs. He had a unique look on the field, mainly due to his glasses, which at times were tinted orange and his dreadlocks.  For the most part, he’s been enjoying his retirement after an impressive career, but the Riot Games forced his hand to sue. Davids did so successfully. Obviously, Riot Games tried to defend themselves with an attempted “it was a complete coincidence” tone, but their own history got the better of them. If we wind the clock back to 2014, a Riot employee tweeted these exact words: “For all you wondering, Striker Lucian was inspired by soccer pro Edgar Davids.” Somebody’s getting fired. At the time, Edgar Davids was quite grateful for the inclusion into the game but he was unaware of the immense size of LoL. Therefore, he’s chosen to strike now for compensation.  Below is an extract from the court’s statement. "The player's marketable popularity is enough reason for the former player to fight the use of his portrait. The player's interests outweigh the commercial interests of the game to offer the Striker Lucian skin and no reasonable compensation has been offered to the player. Riot Games therefore owe the player a compensation fee.” The game developer must pay every penny ever made from using his image. Of course, the player’s claim is extremely valid and we’re pretty sure you can see the utter resemblance yourself. Even the use of “striker” closes the gap to the football field. League of Legends will probably take this to heart for future skins.

Are FaZe going to sign Olofmeister from Fnatic?

Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer Gustafsson is, reportedly, about to finalise a deal which entails his movement to Faze and thus, his departure from Fnatic. The announcement was taken from Flickshot.fr’s recent post and will probably finalise Faze’s CS:GO roster for the time being. The Swedish player has been on Fnatic for three years, playing as a rifler and secondary AWPer, with some time out do to an unfortunate wrist injury. Nonetheless, he’s been a very effective player for the organisation winning a total of 8 events with a 2nd and 3rd to 4th finish too. Known by the community as “Boostmeister” or “Tec9mester” due to his notorious Tec9 shot, he was one of the best players of 2015. In fact, he was named the greatest player of that year by HLTV.org. We don’t know why exactly the 25-year-old will be leaving or who’ll be replacing him, we just know where his new home will most likely be; Faze. Alongside “GuardiaN” from Na’Vi, “olofmesiter” is part of a fresh Faze roster who will definitely prove their potential in upcoming events. Below is the roster with “olofmeister”, who will be replacing “kioShiMa”. Håvard "rain" Nygaard          Finn "karrigan" Andersen Nikola "NiKo" Kovač Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström (coach) Looking at the new additions, this team looks to be fierce. Hopefully, the changes haven’t been for nothing, but we’ll have to wait for another event to really find out for sure. Photo courtesy of HTLV.org
