Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp had a challenge for an aspiring Twitch mod in his League game — scream at the top of your lungs and you’ll get the prestigious role. The user took him up on the challenge, but also landed himself in some hot water by doing so, leaving the streamer speechless.

Tyler1’s outgoing nature and brash personality gave the popular League of Legends streamer a rise to stardom. While he’s scaled back on the toxicity, his over-the-top antics still entertains his tens of thousands of viewers daily, whether that be during a League game or otherwise.

Plenty of imitators have tried to copy the enigmatic streamer, but for most, it just doesn’t feel authentic. However, one viewer took Tyler on in a 1v1 — in-game and out — and proved his ‘alphaness.’ Unfortunately, it also landed him in hot water.

Tyler1 can get pretty loud at times, but it’s this personality that rocketed him to the top of Twitch.

During his January 29 stream, Tyler1 was challenging his viewers to 1v1’s in League. ‘Armf’ was one of the lucky ones to match up with the League enigma, giving the streamer a beatdown in a Bard mirror match.

The duo were in call together, with armf’s mom popping into the background momentarily. The streamer mocked his guest for it, jokingly saying “dude you better quiet down, mom might get mad,” but then an idea popped into his head.

“I dare you, I’ll give you mod if you yell right now,” Tyler1 challenged. “Loud as f**k. I promise, if you yell right now, loud like [screaming,] I will give you mod.”

The proposition of being a moderator in the streamer’s Twitch chat was enticing for the challenger, with armf taking him up on the dare. “Well, I have the worst throat,” he stuttered, a bit nervous about trying to imitate his idol.

Tyler1 re-stated the rules of the challenge, making sure that he wouldn’t cheat. “I mean [even louder screaming] and I don’t mean mic close to your mouth, I mean—,” he added, but he was cut off by armf prepping his throat getting ready to scream.

What came out of the guest’s throat was something else. It was a pretty guttural yell, eliciting a smug smile and a laugh from Tyler1. However, armf’s dad stormed into the room just a few seconds later, and he was less than impressed.

“Hey, you think you can do f**king things like that,” he said, talking down to his son on the computer. “Go out and do that, not in here.” This reaction turned Tyler1’s shock into a little bit of guilt, as armf came back a bit more softly-spoken.

“Tyler, you almost f**ked with my life,” he whispered, telling himself to calm down and finish off the 1v1.

The two went back to playing their 1v1 in a bit of awkward silence, before armf came out on top against the Twitch Rivals champion. All the challenger could muster, in the end, was a quick “GG,” and admitted it had all been worth it.

After the battle was done, Tyler1 was true to his word and ended up moderating armf, although there were a few conditions that came with the privilege.

“I’ll still give you mod because what you did was alpha as fuck, even if a little bit disrespectful to your family so I shouldn’t have made you do it but whatever,” the streamer conceded, admitting that he only let armf win because he “feels sorry for what is going on in that household.”

At the end of the day, armf got his mod privileges, Tyler1 got a kick out of his worthy opponent, and Twitch chat had a field day with memes. While the mod rank might have come at a cost, all good things in life do, and he will be sure to do Tyler1 proud with his newfound power.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
