League of Legends star Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp undertook Riot Games’ newly released tilt test, and the results went about as expected for the infamous Twitch streamer.

Riot Games has recently taken aim at the different kinds of tilters in their flagship title, releasing a tongue-in-cheek video describing each of the different ways that people respond to annoying situations in-game, alongside a Tilt Test for players.

Of course, that piqued the interest of notorious streamer Tyler1, who was infamously permanently banned by the developers for his frequent explosions about the game, as well as his intentional feeding sprees.

The LoL star, now freed from his purgatory away from the game and actively involved in Riot events as a streaming personality, took the plunge on his September 11 broadcast, revealing to the world just which tilting character he really is.

To Steinkamp’s credit, he was fairly honest about his approach to the game, and after answering all 16 questions was named ‘The Paladin’, the option based around “resentment, exasperation, and the need to exert control.”

Riot GamesTyler1 was labelled ‘The Paladin’ in Riot’s new Tilt Test.

“The Paladin! What is this shit dude?” Tyler1 asked, before looking through some of the examples of his tilt. “Oh … yes, yes, thank you! You (Riot) understand! Yes, agreed.”

The streamer thoughts didn’t exactly align with Riot’s offered solutions on his tilt, however, especially when he was directed to ‘learn to let it go’ by the quiz: “No, I’m sorry Riot, no. Learn to let it go? These fucking clowns were doing a cloud dragon instead of fucking Baron?

“You just waited 20 minutes in queue and you just lost 18LP and 40 minutes of your life? Let it go bro. Let it go!” he mocked, before disregarding most of the advice.

For mobile users, the video starts at 7:41.

While he blew through most of Riot’s suggestions on how to fix his behavior, the quiz closed with the idea to put on a playlist to avoid tilt. This caught Tyler1’s eye, and he quickly changed his mind on the overall worth of the Tilt Test.

“I’ll try this playlist today,” he said. “Maybe Riot is literally giving me a cheat sheet on how to fucking climb ELO. Literally giving me a cheat sheet, and it’s right here. I follow these simple steps and I’ll win every single game today. I’m going to try it. I’m going to blast it too.”

If the Tilt Test has helped one of League’s most notorious rage-players get on the straight and narrow then it’s done its job, but there’s no confirmation yet – as Tyler tried to startup the Spotify playlist ahead of a ranked game, he threatened to tilt “out of control” if it didn’t work.

Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy has appeared to confirm that the popular website’s SiriusXM channel will be moving on satellite radio, claiming he was “99%” sure they were leaving.

The satirical sports website announced its SiriusXM channel back in November of 2017 and launched a few months later in January 2018.

Now, however, it seems like the deal is done and so is Barstool.

Dave Portnoy, Barstool Sports’ founder took to Twitter to announce that it was looking extremely unlikely that the channel would continue on SiriusXM.

“I’d say we’re 99.9% out of Sirius,” he revealed. “We aren’t in same stratosphere in terms of negotiations.”

“We will just move on to new platforms as always. Our crowd will follow as always,” the Barstool founder added.

It’s unclear exactly where they will move to and Portnoy, who has grown increasingly famous over the years in part to his viral pizza reviews, offered no clues.

One possible destination spot could very well be Spotify, which shocked the industry by signing Joe Rogan and his podcast to an exclusive deal.

While Portnoy didn’t elaborate on the type of deal he would like, it sounds like he’s being severely low-balled by the satellite radio company, hence his aggressive-sounding tweet.

This news comes as Bloomberg has reported that Howard Stern is nearing a massive $120M a year deal – a step above from his previous deals at $80 to $100 million a year.

If those reports are right, it’s a sign that Sirius XM is willing to pay some serious cash, but apparently not when it comes to keeping Barstool within its network.

“See this is why I can’t work for peanuts,” Portnoy said in response to the Stern report. “I’m not Stern. But I’m not nobody either.”

We’ll just have to see what the future holds for both SiriusXM and Barstool, and if a deal can be salvaged.
