Stress has been casting League of Legends events since 2013, starting with lesser events such as Insomnia48 Spring 2013 and the Gfinity London 2013 event. He has since been transitioning to be part of the EU LCS analyst desk, casting for the 2015 expansion tournament, and the EU Challenger Series since 2015. He also did the promotional tournaments for 2015 and 2016. Stress started to cast the EU LCS during the 2015 summer split, and continued to be part of the analyst desk for the playoffs and the regional finals.
His role expanded in the 2017 season, as he was seen breaking down champions that were used in EU LCS games, and he continued to cast in the promotional tournament for the 2018 season.
Stress did not indicate what his immediate future would hold, but he said he’ll “be taking a little while to rest and work on some new projects.” Stress was not among the casters elected to call the League of Legends World Championship, as the talent was revealed last week.
