Tyler1 obliterates his headset in League of Legends misplay meltdown

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp lost the plot after failing to secure a fairly easy smite in League of Legends, smashing his headset into smithereens before tearing up in his chair in another classic meltdown from the hothead streamer.

It’s easy to get salty over a game of League, especially if you missed smite as a jungler. It’s one of the worst feelings not being able to secure the objective, and in the worst case, it can sometimes even single-handedly lose you the game.

The pressure is always high stakes when it comes to securing an objective, but a monumental screw-up from Tyler1 saw the former AD carry turned jungler crack a tantrum for the ages at the expense of his gaming headset.

Tyler1 destroyed his headset after getting animated over missing a smite in League.

With his team behind in a tense game of solo queue, Tyler1 on Olaf was looking to secure a dragon after getting the enemy Warwick off the board. It looked set in stone, until he miscalculated the damage and failed to get his smite off before the enemy Caitlyn sniped it.

This led Tyler1 to go on a frenzy, screaming in anger at himself over missing the objective, which would have secured his team the ever-powerful Ocean Soul.

He tossed his headset around too, breaking it in the process, only making things worse. “I broke my headset man,” he said while tearing up in his chair. “Dude, there’s no way [I missed that smite]!”

The AD carry turned jungler seemed pretty deflated over the misplay, looking back on the moment with plenty of what-if’s.

“I knew I was going to miss it, I could just tell,” he said, explaining what he needs to change in the future so he can climb to Rank 1. “I’m f**king waiting until the dragon is below my smite mark, but you’ve gotta assume it based on damage.”

“God I’m so sad,” he added in a surprisingly non-Tyler comment.

The missed smite did have a massive lead-on impact for the rest of the game too. Tyler1’s mental was completely out of it after that, and he finished the game 0/8/10 on Olaf. On top of that, his team never managed to secure the soul as the enemy continued to choke them out and keep them from the pit.

The enemy Caitlyn stole it from 646 health, which means Tyler1 had a window to secure it for his team with his 680 damage Smite.

However, it’s all lessons learned for the streamer’s grind to Challenger in a new role. While he’s peaked in the top rank in his main position of AD carry, he set himself a challenge to do the same in the jungle for Season 10.

He’s currently sitting in Diamond 4 with a 58% win rate after 200 games, with plenty of losses as of late stagnating his climb.

He did get his headset replaced thanks to his partner Macaiyla bringing one out mid-stream, but the new equipment won’t make the wounds of the painful missed smite go away, or the meltdown it brought with it.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
