Popular Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp has revealed the jaw-dropping number of subscribers he lost on the platform after taking a month and a half off.

Tyler1 is arguably one of the most popular streamers in the history of the platform. Despite numerous bans, his League of Legends streams have made him a huge name in Riot Games’ MOBA, and he has been rewarded with a loyal and devoted fanbase.

That said, a recent hiatus from streaming so as to reach Challengers in solo queue proved that, perhaps, they are not quite as loyal as he might have thought.

Tyler1 has been a huge name in League of Legends, especially following his numerous controversies.

After achieving Challenger status in the jungler role, Tyler made his grand return to Twitch, ready to entertain the fans once again.

It wasn’t quite as he expected though, with much fewer subscribers than he had before his break, and during his June 1 stream he revealed exactly what the damage was.

“I leave for a month and a half and I lose – get this – 15,000 subscribers,” he told his viewers, with the usual Tyler1 humor and bravado evident.

He continued: “You can’t forget to re-enable it, but you can forget about your Xbox Live membership?”

Finally, he finished his point by saying that there’s “a lot of fake f**ks” in his stream, telling all the people resubscribing to “just f**k off” before pretending to spit.

Obviously, while Tyler makes a big joke of it, 15,000 subscribers is a monumental loss to almost any Twitch streamer, and is a number that many won’t ever achieve let alone lose.

Needless to say, with how popular Tyler is, he’ll likely make that number back and then some over the coming weeks, so he need not worry too much.

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
