FlyQuest's League of Legends coach Brandon "Saintvicious" DiMarco resigned Saturday following comments made on a live stream characterizing mental health as a personal weakness. Gabriel "Invert" Zoltan-Johan and David "Cop" Roberson will assume his position for the foreseeable future.
The League of Legends coach minimized the effects of mental illness, mocked those with depression, and referred to widely accepted diagnoses such as anxiety as "made up bullshit."
Saintvicious' comments were roundly criticized on the League of Legends subreddit. FlyQuest announced Saintvicious' resignation Saturday evening, and he posted an apology on his personal Facebook page early Sunday morning.
Saintvicious joined FlyQuest in May, ahead of the NA LCS summer split.
