"YoungBuck" (Real Name: Joey Steltenpool) is a retired League of Legends player, currently the Team Director for Fnatic.
YoungBuck hails from Bovenkarspel, Netherlands. He first played Red Alert II at age 11. Prior to League of Legends, he played Soldier of Fortune II and Red Alert III at a high level. One of YoungBuck's friends over SoF2 invited him to try League of Legends, and he initially declined the offer. However, his friend insisted, and the Dutch player installed the game before the Lux release (~ October 2010). He had a lot of friends coming into the game, and his first impressions were positive. Even though he "probably got stomped a lot," he stuck to it.
