What is L9 in League of Legends?

If you are wondering what L9 means in LoL, L9 (or Low Nine) is a League of Legends group that was previously created by the infamous Obsess and RatIRL. The main purpose of the group was to spread two things: high-quality gameplay carried with toxicity. L9 members were known to be Elo Boosters, high elo players, and finally toxic.

L9 or Low Nine was one of the most famous League of Legends in the EU region but also it happened to be quite controversial. The group included some members such as Ap0calypse, RatIRL, Obsess, and Selfmade. Those were the main members of L9 - people then used the tag and the club became even more popular.
