The Leaderboard: This week in esports
On this week’s episode of the Leaderboard, our hosts consider the case of Hyerim “Magicamy” Lee.
The popular Hearthstone player came under suspicion following her pulling out of the ESL Hearthstone Legendary Series final just days before the event. With her reasons for the withdrawal changing multiple times, many fans were left to wonder why Lee had never been able to attend and compete in an offline event in spite of her apparent prowess in the game.
When multiple professional players emerged to cast doubt on the legitimacy of Lee’s play and accomplishments, a grand controversy came about that resulted in Lee parting ways with her Hearthstone team and an uncertain future for her in the game.
