Prominent League of Legends streamer Yiliang "Doublelift" was left stunned when fellow pro gamer Joedat "Voyboy" made a surprise appearance during his livestream.
On September 10, Doublelift analyzed and watched the Evil Geniuses versus 100 Thieves LCS game. Before the best-of-five series commenced, several well-known League of Legends personalities like Tyler "Tyler1," Kevin "Hauntzer," Søren "Bjergsen," and Vincent "Biofrost" came on stream.
Voyboy joined the stream a few moments later, leaving Doublelift awestruck. The clip was posted to the r/LivestreamFail subreddit, and it quickly became one of the most viral posts on the forum.
Redditor u/Firelord Alex was delighted to see Joedat and commented:
Voyboy's surprising appearance leads to a wholesome moment on Doublelift's stream
Doublelift hosted a five-hour stream and spent most of it analyzing the LCS. Before the series began, the streamer's girlfriend, Leena, revealed that some special guests had come over to meet Yiliang.
Tyler1 welcomed Joedat to stream at the seven-minute mark, with the latter saying:
"Ay, what's up, bro! They (Twitch chat) got you working? You kidding me? How long have you been live? Seven minutes! Eight minutes, bro! Dude, bring the HR, bro. This guy needs a break right now, man."
Doublelift was elated to see Voyboy and responded:
"Dude, if you want to, you know, take over my streaming full job. I have to go out for a trophy ceremony in like an hour. It's going to be absolutely... I'm just going to be crying out. There's just going to be back-breaking work, but I'll tough it out, and you can actually sit here and stream for a bit."
The former professional mid-laner volunteered to "hold down" the stream, and the trio chatted for a few more minutes.
