Back on September 4, a number of Tyler1 fans were left questioning if the streamer was actually happy or if he hated his job after he appeared to end his stream with a distraught look upon his face.
Others, however, pointed out that it could very well be a troll from the uber-popular League of Legends streamer – and that he may have just left his camera showing his ‘emotional’ side in a bid to garner some attention. While he didn’t address what happened in his follow-up streams, Steinkamp has finally explained what it was all about.
After 20 minutes into his September 6 stream, Tyler’s chat was flooded with more questions about the ‘sad’ stream ending as fans begged him to give them a proper answer.
He finally gave in and opened up about what happened – confirming the suspicions of one side. “That was one hundred percent intentional,” Tyler1 said between laughs and shakes of the head. He even took time to fire shots at anyone who believed he was being serious. “Dumbasses,” he added, before sitting up in his chair and focusing back on the broadcast.
However, all the interest that the moment had gained for him even gave Tyler an idea for his streams moving forward.
He added: “I should come up with something every stream to farm one clip,” referring back to the interest that the ‘sad’ ending had created. “Like, before streaming, I need to think of something to do to farm one clip per stream. Yeah, that’s the play. That’ll revitalize the stream.”
Whether or not the streamer decides to act upon his genius idea remains to be seen, but at least those fans who held genuine concern for him can rest easy knowing they had been trolled.
They’ll just have to be a little more cautious moving forward – because who knows what he’ll come up with next.
