When it comes to streaming League of Legends on Twitch, there is perhaps no bigger name than Tyler1 outside of the professional circuit. The American can usually be found at the top of the pile – when there isn’t an LCS, LEC, or LCK broadcast on – as he tears opponents apart, both in-game and on the mic.
Tyler1 has managed to take down top-level professional players, troll his own viewers who’ve tried to turn the tables on him, and been engaged in brutal verbal blows with other streamers. Yet, this time around, he chose a slightly different route to give one over on a player - complete and utter silence.
During his October 14 stream, Steinkamp had been playing games with former professional hashinshin when the pair lost a match and began, hilariously, debating as to what the problem was.
They turned their attention to character nerfs, with hashinshin diving right into the exact changes that he believes Riot Games needs to make after being set off by T1. That prompted Tyler1 to put down his headphones and walk away, all while hashinshin carried on with his explanations.
“Ah, he just walked in,” the streamer said as he finally realized that Steinkamp had taken a break during the conversation and had returned to his mic. “Ah ha, yeah,” Tyler quickly replied, making out as if nothing was up, even though he chat filled with laughing spam.
As his chat saw the funny side of things, Tyler1 dropped right back into the conversation about changes need to be made before the pair set off on another match across Summoner's Rift.
Maybe next time, though, anyone who decides to team up with the hilarious streamer might just want to keep an eye on him at all times. They’ll only end up in the very middle of one of his jokes.
