Is LoL a Haunted Game?
EDIT: 8 more people have reported the glitch, so it's not just me! I uploaded the pictures, but plz read the whole thread first.

Note: Some of this is second hand, I can't fully confirm it's all 100% factual.
I've got a crazy experience to share with the LoL community. It started with a graphical bug, but has become increasingly wierd and creepy. TLDR: I seriously think this game might be haunted - or something like it.
I first encountered the glitch in October. I was Kennen, running by the spot where Urf pops up, and the game froze. I assume the Urf graphic somehow caused it. I closed and rejoined, which seems to fix things. This happened two more times, with another weird effect: My champ would sometimes flicker to the Shen model after reconnecting.
It started happening again about a week later with even more bizzare effects:
This would frequently happen, and became quite annoying. I kept hoping one of the patches would fix it, but after a while simply chalked it up to my older computer.
CREEPY HISTORY REVEALED:
In March I went to visit my friend in California, and this is where **** gets really strange. My homeboy from high school (we'll call him "Davey") lives in Culver City. Coincidentally this is also where Riot Games is based.
We were both off for spring break, and spent the week screwing around town. We walked through a really nice cemetery (felt more like a park), and Davey points to this headstone and says "That's Joel, the Dota kid there". We've both played Dota for years, but I hadn't heard about this.
Davey says he used to be friends with this now-deceased person (named Joel), and his cousin.
Apparently, Joel had been active in the Dota community, and was rumored to have interned at Riot Games while LoL was in planning stages. He died during an operation (something with his lungs). According to the cousin, Joel's family completely blames the doctor for his death, claiming the medical records show clear signs of negligence. They tried to file a lawsuit for malpractice, but the legal stuff went on for years. Davey fell out of touch with the cousin, and doesn't know how it ended.
IS "URF" A TRIBUTE TO JOEL?
When I got back and the glitches started again, I started thinking "Hehe, it's Joel haunting the game!"
I wish I hadn't thought of it. The idea got stuck in my mind, and now everything seems like it's connected. The evidence is stacking up, and I really think Urf might be some kind of tribute to Joel. Let's look at some of the "coincidences"
IS THIS "GLITCH" SOMETHING SCARY?
(Pic #3) The creepiest thing of all is the graphical bug, which only occurs on Urf's grave! It varies occasionally, but most often the word "KILLER" from the death recap is tiled across the screen over and over again. On reconnect the model flickers to Shen...in his SURGEON outfit. Maybe a dumb coincidence, but it makes me think of how Joel died.
So in this "glitch": You walk on Urf's (or Joel's) grave. The game stops and says "KILLER" over and over. Then it repeatedly shows a surgeon!
I'm seriously getting scared to play this game, the moment when I walk over that Urf spot. Will it glitch? Will something even more scary happen? Will I be haunted until the end of eternity? (Not srsly...but srsly).
That's about it. I'm sharing this with you all because it's both creepy and fascinating, and to hear if anybody else has similar experiences. If so, please speak up!
EDIT: Allright, I can't tell if this guy is pulling my leg or not. TBH I'm inclined to believe
him, even if he is a bit dramatic:
EDIT 2: Thought I'd add, I had trouble uploading the pictures, especially Pic #2 of the yearbook. Every time I'd think it was uploading, but the computer just crashed. Finally got it on the fourth or fifth try. Coincidence?
You shouldn't have done that...
You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?
Inb4this becomes an inside joke for Riot
Not sure if real...
Started really good, but then you lost me.
Why do I get the feeling that you're employed by S2 games or Valve?
YOU WERE THE DOCTOR WEREN'T YOU
Why the hell did I read this?
Now I don't want to walk past that spot. Lol
holy sweet jesus this is dqlkweql;wkdwqe
