This wasn't ddosing, this was the riot's servers failing, It happened to me a week ago, I thought I was being ddosed too.

The "IP_FIND" is OBVIOUSLY a joke. It's virtually improbable he could have recreated the league of legends (pvp.net) client to grab someone's IP via a game. There's a difference between trolling, and actually ddosing someone

Look at his ping in the game, it stays the exact same. If he were to be DDoSed, his ping would have went up because, as you said yourself, his internet has severely limited resources.

Not only that, but even while this "DDoS" was going, his stream was up, and not lagging AT ALL. If he had been ddosed, his live stream would have gone down.

This may have just been a joke of coincidence combined with the Riot servers being oh-so-trusty as we know them to be today, or it's possible (highly improbable) that it could have been a real DoS attack, but once again, I highly doubt it.

Also, if he had used his client to grab the players' IP address, he must have some amazingly fast hands to type in the command to retreive the IP, view it, type it into his DDoS software (whether a botnet, shell, vps/dedicated server, etc) and send the request.

Please look over this more because this seems like it's untrue

Edit: seems I'm getting downvoted by players who know nothing about networking but seem to think everything is true if it's posted by someone "official"
