Looking back at Alex Ich

On October 30, the former Moscow Five mid laner Alexey “Alex Ich” Ichetovkin announced his retirement from League of Legends. Almost anyone could’ve seen this coming, but I still felt my heart sink when I heard the news. Not because it was bad for Alex—on the contrary, if his tweet is of any indication, he seems to be in a great place in life—but because another living legend was about to fade into obscurity.

And Alex Ich deserves better than that.
