Popular League of Legends streamer Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp’s reaction at the end of his September 4 Twitch broadcast has left viewers concerned and confused, unable to tell if he’s pulling a joke on them or not.

Tyler1 is well known for his brash personality and hilarious clips, regularly screaming and shouting his way through his broadcasts, often voicing his frustrations at LoL, a game which he streams almost exclusively, at opponents who have annoyed him, and sometimes even at his own chat as he entertains his audience.

The end of his September 4 stream has left many confused though, with his appearance and demeanour leaving many wondering if he was playing another trick on them, or if it was a reflection of his true feelings.

Riot GamesTyler1 is one of LoL’s most popular streamers.

After telling his viewers that he would catch them later in typical Tyler1 fashion, the 24-year-old gave a massive smile straight down the camera, waving emphatically with his left hand as he used his right to put up an end slate and play some music.

As a song from the Naruto anime called ‘Sadness and Sorrow’ played, a sad-looking Tyler1 put his head in his hands, rubbing his eyes, before seemingly realising that his camera was still showing him, and quickly firing his end slate back up before going offline.

The short view of the LoL star moments after the end of his stream sent viewers into wild discussions, with some stating that he looked like a man who had just finished “a shift at a job you hate.”

Others pondered whether it was playing League of Legends constantly for five years was the source of his annoyance, or perhaps that he was just exhausted after finishing his broadcast.

Others weren’t buying into the clip, with one user mentioning that the sad music made it clear that it was a joke, while another simply wrote: “Because of Tyler’s persona, I can’t tell if he’s faking anymore.”

The Twitch star streamed briefly on September 5, but didn’t mention the incident, so fans remain in the dark as to how Tyler1’s feeling, and it’s possible that he may never address it, leaving viewers permanently confused as to whether he was trolling them or not.

Thomas Petrou reveals Hype House could be moving again

Hype House co-founder Thomas Petrou has hinted that the content collective could be moving to a new location, once again, after multiple instances of their address leaking online.

The Hype House is one of TikTok’s most popular groups, comprised of several high-profile content creators who live under a single roof to make the most out of their videos and social media posts.

However, being internet-famous is no cakewalk, as overly enthusiastic fans have leaked their address multiple times online, resulting in a crowd of viewers clogging their driveway and generally disturbing the peace of their neighborhood.

Thus, the Hype House — alongside rival group the Sway House — have had to pack up and move quite a few times, but it doesn’t look like their moving days are over just yet.

In an October 27 vlog, Thomas Petrou revealed that he and his Hype House homies are looking for a new home, although they haven’t exactly nailed down a solid location at the moment.

“We’re looking into moving,” Thomas said in the vlog. “Not necessarily right this second, but we’re looking at properties today.”

Although the group found one home that several of them liked (the roof of which Thomas unfortunately showed off during the video), it doesn’t seem like things are set in stone, giving the group some wiggle room if they find a more suitable abode in the interim.

It makes sense that the House would want to move; in a series of Instagram posts in July, Petrou revealed that over 100 visitors would visit their home per day, making for a fairly chaotic living situation for just about everyone involved.

As previously mentioned, the Hype House aren’t the only ones facing such troubles. Even the Sway House and YouTuber David Dobrik have dealt with major invasions of privacy as of late, with strangers showing up to his doorstep and leaving their animals at his front gate.

While it’s definitely cool to meet your favorite internet stars, it’s important to remember that they are people, too, who are deserving of their own personal privacy — no matter how many followers they have on social media.
