Nailed It and Failed It: League Launcher and Summit1g

Each week we bring you two moments, one of epic success, someone who absolutely nailed it! And another of an epic failure, someone who totally failed it. This week on Nailed It and Failed It…

Nailed It!

Lee Sang-hyeok better known as Faker, is one of the best League of Legends players to ever live. With three World Championship wins under his belt he’s a rock star no matter where he goes. Someone of such incredible skill rarely see’s defeat or is presented with a challenge that he can’t overcome. So this week’s nailed it must be going to Faker, right? Afraid not, he’s actually the victim as the nailed it goes to the most recent challenge that actually gave Faker a run for his money, the League of Legends Launcher. During a game of League as he was just starting an error message popped up and no matter how much he clicked to make it go away, it persisted.

Failed It!

We’ve showcased professional first person shooter savant Summit1g on many segments before, but it’s not often he ends up in the halls of the Failed It. It just goes to show that even the best of the best have moments of fail. While playing the new shooter game Escape from Tarkov, Summit1g was trying to take out a few opponents that had the upper hand on a balcony across a large open gap. Summit1g tossed a grenade for cover to move positions down some stairs, but the grenade bounced off a high beam and met him at the bottom of the descent, killing him. His reaction was classic and not entirely unwarranted.
