The word came down this morning from her friend and roommate, esports journalist Richard Lewis, who announced on Twitter that she had passed away overnight in her sleep.

Creveling had an impressive career within League Of Legends. She was the first transgender woman to qualify and compete in the 2015 League of Legends Championship Series with team Renegades. She later left the team amid harassment of her looks and appearance. Lately, she had become one of the most popular LoL streamers on Twitch, while also doing the occasional tournament and event like the Twitch Rivals series.

Our condolences go out to her friends, family, and fans in this time of sorrow.
