Popular Twitch streamer Tyler1 came to a sudden realization while playing League of Legends – that he may not be as popular as he once was.

The streamer, whose return to Twitch in January 2018 garnered record breaking viewership figure at the time, worries that he is now not so relevant.

Best known as a League of Legends streamer, and the most popular in this category, it would be expected that LoL players would be overjoyed to match in the same game as Tyler1.

Tyler1’s return to Twitch in January garnered over 380,000 concurrent viewers.

However, after Tyler1 joined a ranked match, every player in the game left shortly after, leaving the streamer bewildered and surprised – “dude, am I washed up?”

Typically, when players get into the same game as a big name streamer, they would do their all to stay in the game and, as Tyler1 puts it, “get their clout” – but not on this occasion.

“People just don’t even care?! T1 is in your game and everyone leaves lobby instantly. Dude, am I washed up? Every single player left the fucking game. Wait a minute, am I that irrelevant?”

It’s no secret that League of Legends is no longer the ruling game on Twitch as it once was, as the emergence of battle royale and games like Fortnite and PUBG took over.

Tyler1 has remained loyal to League of Legends, but many of his fans tune in for his personality and often controversial moments, rather than purely gameplay.

He recently called out his own viewers for not being active enough, asking “am I view-botting?” as his poll on what fast food was best only received 700 votes.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
