An attack on League of Legends, EA and, amongst others, took place earlier today.

A little while later, the “victim”, PhantomL0rd, reported being swatted, which means someone reported a fake hostage situation at his home, resulting in a SWAT team entering his home and arresting him:

just had an automatic pointed at me, put in hand cuffs and sat in the back of a cop car as I watched as 6 policemen go through my whole house.. will keep you all updated.

A few hours ago, PhantomLord posted a YouTube response as a response to the attacks.

Tom has been gaming ever since he could walk. As soon as he got his hands on an NES, his childhood revolved around the adventures of Mario and Link. Later on, he switched to Playstation, but eventually became a PC fanboy, and to this day it still remains his platform of choice. Tom studies law at Ghent University, Belgium and next to video games, his hobbies are a variety of martial arts, playing rugby and once in a while he also does a CrossFit workout.
