Twitch Streamer and LCS Pro Remilia Dies At 24

North America League of Legends Championship Series – NA LCS 2016 Spring Week 1 – Provided by Riot Games/LCS

It was a sad weekend, as the League of Legends community lost a pioneer. Friday night saw the passing of Maria ‘Remilia’ Creveling, the first woman to compete in the North American LCS. She passed away at the age of 24 in her sleep. Her roommate and best friend Richard Lewis originally reported the passing. He said, “She would not have wanted any lengthy statements or grand eulogies. Despite having fans all over the world she was never one who craved the spotlight. My only request is that anyone wanting to pay tribute reach out to ensure that it is done in a manner that respects her wishes. “

Remilia was known as the MadWife. For those not in the know, this is because she was an incredible Thresh main, following in the vein of international star MadLife. She competed for the Renegades in 2016 as their starting support and left her mark on the history books.

Her Journey

While her LCS career was a short one, going 1-5 in 6 games with Renegades before stepping down, her path to the pro scene was well earned. Despite what some said at the time, her appearance in the LCS was not a publicity stunt. Her career began in Season 3 when she played for Curse Academy. Over the next three years, she would play for many teams before finding the right fit, ironically, with Misfits Gaming.

On the back of strong play by Remilia, Misfits Gaming managed to qualify for the Challenger Series in 2015. They rebranded to Renegades, and set out to qualify for the 2016 LCS Spring Split. They would manage to do so after beating Coast and Imagine in the promotion tournament.

Remilia left the LCS in early 2016, citing anxiety and self-esteem as factors in the decision. Having been an avid viewer at the time, it’s not an understatement to say she endured a lot of abuse. Don’t get me wrong, that was a particularly toxic time in the League of Legends community. Everyone from casual players, to spectators, to casters, to competitors endured a lot of abuse. However, Remilia took her share and more before deciding to exit the pro scene.

On a personal note, I want to say that Remilia was an inspiration to me. While few and far between, people like Remilia and Scarlett have broken barriers that would have seemed impossible 15 years ago. Though her LCS career was short, Maria Creveling will have earned her spot in the inevitable Riot Games Hall of Fame. Thank you Remilia, and God speed.
