Richard Lewis (born January 11, 1982) is a British veteran esports journalist, tournament host and analyst, who was previously employed by Turner, hosting the ELEAGUE franchise. He is perhaps best known for breaking the North American match fixing scandal and publishing a piece that resulted in the CEO of Ninjas in Pyjamas resigning after his failure to pay NiP players' tournament winnings - as well as drawing the ire of Riot Games and the League of Legends community. In Counter-Strike: Source, Richard also exposed the infamous vent.exe cheat - a nearly undetectable cheating tool that could be used on LAN matches. He formerly collaborated with Thorin on the CS:GO edition of By the Numbers, but would eventually rejoin Thorin in Return of By The Numbers. He currently resides in Las Vegas, Nevada.
