Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp is no stranger to ruffling a few feathers in the League of Legends community and in his latest roast he has gone on the offensive by slamming junglers in the game.
For Season 10, Tyler1 set himself the challenge of learning an entirely new role in the game by becoming a jungler and climbing the League of Legends ranks. Currently sitting in Diamond 1, he’s made pretty good progress, but had some choice words to say about fellow players in his role, saying that anyone who complains about the difficulty of being a jungler has no right to do so because it’s the “easiest role in the game.”
Speaking to Travis Gafford and sporting a rather decent cosplay of his beloved Draven, the streamer was asked how the transition to jungler has been this season. “I’ll tell you this,” Tyler1 answers, “jungle is the easiest role in the game, and it’s not even close. All these junglers that say that it’s hard and ‘oh, it’s my laners,’ they’re bad.”
Gafford then points out that Tyler1 role swapped at a time where many junglers were highly critical of the game, to which he responds: “Yeah, and guess what? I now outrank most of them, and they are quite upset about that.”
So far in Season 10, Tyler1 has clocked up almost 300 victories with a win rate of 55%, according to his OP.gg page. He’s found success with Olaf (who he also says will be next on the list for a cosplay), and currently has a 63% win rate with the champion.
While he’s proved himself to be a half-decent jungler, Tyler1 – who was last month’s second most watched streamer on Twitch – certainly seems to think he’s got the role all worked out. His opinion that it’s the easiest role in League of Legends, however, will certainly be the topic of some debate.
