He is arguably one of the biggest characters on Twitch, and without a doubt the platform’s top streamer when it comes to League of Legends. We are talking, of course, about Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp.
The “reformed” streamer is notorious for showing his toxic side every now and again. While he certainly has dialled down the flaming since his early days on Twitch, Tyler1 is still a walking, talking, headset-breaking clip machine and attracts huge audiences.
But the crowds don’t come solely for the entertainment value, as Tyler1 has proven himself to be a top League of Legends player and has set himself numerous challenges over the years to expand his game. In 2020, he went completely dark on Twitch and social media until he reached his goal of hitting Challenger in the League of Legends ranks after swapping roles to jungler. He also hit Master rank as a toplaner. He’s also claimed victories at Twitch Rivals tournaments.
Tyler1 has over four million followers on Twitch, and his League of Legends streams regularly pull in over 30,000 viewers.
His biggest ever stream was in 2018. Titled ‘THE RETURN’, this was Tyler1’s first stream playing League of Legends for more than two years after being banned for constant toxic behaviour. It attracted 368,000 viewers, which at the time set a Twitch record for the highest peak audience for an individual streamer.
In October 2020, Tyler1 joined esports organisation T1 as a content creator.
That’s a brief rundown of his life on Twitch so far, but here we answer some of the most frequently asked questions about the LoL star.
