"hyrqBot" (Real Name: John Velly) is a retired French League of Legends player, formerly a Manager for ThunderBot SPARTA.


hyrqBot is a League of Legends player hailing from Nogent-sur-Marne, France.

His first foray in gaming included, but is not limited to StarCraft: Brood War, Counter-Strike, WarHammer Online, WarCraft III and Guild Wars. One game he played a lot is Defense of the Ancients (DOTA), which he played for four years.

He started playing LoL due to his friends inciting him to join them. He initially did not like the game and went back to DotA, only to notice that he developed a strong dislike for many of the game's characteristics. He soon came back to League, sticking to it ever since.

Initially, his family was not very supportive of his LoL gaming activities. However, they soon would be as he convinced them of how important this game is to him, as he started to make a name for himself in the League of Legends competitive scene.

On January 12th, 2014, hyrqBot announced his retirement from competitive League of Legends.[1]
