Hey there! We are The Shotcaller, a Berlin-based esports outlet currently most active within the League of Legends space.

We write articles, interview League of Legends pros - and we need your help to continue doing this in the future.

Not yet familiar with our work?

When we first started The Shotcaller, we wanted to fill an important need within the esports space: Video interviews with LEC, back then EU LCS players. Since many esports outlets previously dropped out of the region, we felt like it was important to give European League of Legends the coverage it deserves. Since we started doing video interviews in Spring 2018, we've produced more than 350 videos, talking to players, coaches, casters, and even the parents of players



Here is a short summary of League of Legends events we have covered:

  • 2017 EU LCS Spring Split
  • 2017 Rift Rivals
  • 2017 EU LCS Summer Split
  • 2018 EU LCS Spring Split
  • 2018 Mid-Season Invitational
  • 2018 European Master Spring
  • 2018 Rift Rivals
  • 2018 NA LCS Summer Split
  • 2018 EU LCS Summer Split
  • Worlds 2018
  • 2017 All-Stars
  • 2019 LEC Spring Split
  • 2019 Mid-Season Invitational (planned)
  • 2019 LEC Summer Split (planned)
  • Worlds 2019 (planned)
Simply put, we did a lot of stuff so far. And we guarantee you that it's only going to get better from here. But in order to achieve that, we need your support.

Why not work with brands instead of asking us for money? 

Due to Youtube not offering a sustainable stream of income anymore, many content creators, be it Travis Gafford of Travis Gafford Esports Industries, Rocket Beans TV, or your favorite Twitch streamer, have started working with brands in order to make money. This is something we’ve been trying to achieve as well, but thus far, we haven’t succeeded in this area.

Simply put, while our reach is already noticeable and our growth is great, it still pales in comparison to big League of Legends Youtubers, content creators that potential brand partners compare us a lot to. But here is where your support comes into the formula:

By supporting us on Patreon, you don’t just give us a specific amount of money we can work with. You show that you value our content so much that, even though you don’t have to, still happily support us financially. That you’re a die-hard fan of our work. This is something that is very attractive to brands.

Simply put: A Youtuber that reaches 200,000 people a month, but has no true fanbase, will have a lot more trouble finding a brand to work with, than a Youtuber reaching only 50,000 people a month, but with 500 of those people supporting him on Patreon.

Darius reads Fnatic Fan-Fiction
Once a month, Darius will read you Fnatic fan-fiction written during the 2015/2016 era of Fnatic - not by himself, but he'll give it his absolute best to give you the most amazing (or cringiest) experience in EU LCS history.
