‘RIP Maria, I love you.’ Creveling was a standout support player and qualified for the LCS with team Renegades in 2015.
She made her debut the next year under intense scrutiny. Many celebrated her, but the comment sections accompanying live streams of Renegades matches were flooded with sexist and transphobic harassment, Associated Press reported earlier this year.
