Steven ‘Destiny’ Bonnell believes that Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp is one of the very best streamers on Twitch.
The topic of best streamers came up during one of Destiny’s recent Twitch streams and the former professional StarCraft II player was quick to single Tyler1 out.
“Tyler1 I think is one of the best, if not the best, streamers on Twitch,” the 29-year-old says without a moment’s hesitation.
Destiny goes on to say that “on first glance,” the League of Legends streamer can come across as nothing more than a rager, but that he “legitimately thinks” that Tyler1 is one of the best streamers on the platform.
“Actually, let me rephrase that. You could argue that Tyler is the best streamer on Twitch, Tyler1 might be the BEST streamer on Twitch.”
Tyler1 is one of the most popular streamers on the Amazon-owned streaming platform with almost two million followers.
He is best known for his League of Legends streams and briefly held the record for the most concurrent viewers of a solo streamer when he returned to the game earlier this year after being banned for ‘toxic behavior.’
The 23-year-old’s standing with Riot Games appears to have improved a great deal since then, even appearing on the analysis desk at the North American LCS finals.
Having gone from being tagged as one of the most toxic members of the League of Legends community to one of the most popular, it looks like Tyler1 is also winning the respect of his colleagues like Destiny.
