A former League of Legends professional player and Twitch streamer Lee “Rush,” recently returned from mandatory military service in South Korea and spoke about his experience.

After a two-year hiatus, the streamer returned to Twitch and hosted his first eight-hour broadcast. Rush began playing his favorite game right away, and while doing so, he shared some memories from his time in the South Korean army.

Fans were curious as to why the content creator had removed his YouTube videos, and he explained that the South Korean military does not allow personnel to have a secondary source of income.

In November 2020, the former member of Cloud 9 joined the military and made a huge comeback stream yesterday (June 6). He wasted no time and immediately began streaming League of Legends.

The now Counter Logic Gaming (CLG) affiliated streamer revealed the reason for deleting the YouTube videos at the one-hour mark of his livestream. The MOBA gamer went on to say that officials warned new recruits about making extra money from previous endeavors.

Rush revealed that he was forced to either delete his YouTube channel or remove the existing videos after explaining how the South Korean military operates. The military’s rule surprised fans in his Twitch chat, and the former League of Legends pro responded.

For the next seven hours, the streamer continued to answer more viewer questions while streaming League of Legends.

Fans were ecstatic to see the streamer make a comeback after two years, and his clips were featured posts on the streamer-focused subreddit r/LivestreamFail.

Some Redditors suggested that the content creator could have given his YouTube channel to a close relative, which would have allowed him to keep his videos on the platform.

Some fans wondered if he was still competing as his signature champion.

Rush is a well-known figure in the gaming and streaming communities, having started livestreaming on the platform in 2016. He has over 520k followers and has primarily played League of Legends and Teamfight Tactics (TFT).
