American Dota 2 veteran Samuel "Sammyboy" Anderson currently playing for ‘Team Vendetta' has just accused his coach, Chase “Loomdun” Stearns of sexual harassment over a 4-week period.

The incidents are alleged to have occurred in Sammyboy’s room after he invited his teammates and his coach for “a mini boot camp”. While the rest of the team didn’t take the offer, Loomdun decided to move into Sammyboy’s house where he allegedly harassed the player for the next 3-4 weeks.

Sammyboy alleges that Loomdun sexually harassed him in front of his roommates, during official matches, while also making repeated sexual advances towards him despite his clear rejections. He also claims that he started streaming himself, to prevent Loomdun from making further advances during officials.

Post these incidents, Loomdun has been removed from Team Vendetta.

After this statement was made public, several prominent Dota 2 personalities including Jonathan "Loda" Berg, Jonathan "PimpmuckL" Liebig, William "Blitz" Lee, and Alan "Nahaz" Bester tweeted in support of Sammyboy.

Blitz also commented on a reddit post about the incident. Stating that:

Loomduns legit insane. He keeps telling everyone he was the reason Liquid won TI, even though they fired him because nobody trusted him, and he kept trying to get Misery to fire me. He asked for 100,000$ USD upfront, and 10% of all future winnings in exchange for 'winning DC TI and fixing all the problems'. On top of that, he randomly used to hit on friends of mine and when told off would just continue. The guy is one of the bigger creeps in dota, and I warned gunnar about him about 100 times.


At the time of writing this, Loomdun is yet to give a statement on the accusations aired against him.
