In a move that just was always meant to be, iconic Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp has signed with esports organization T1 with an announcement that seemingly came out of nowhere.

On October 17, T1 officially announced that Tyler 1 would be joining the org as a streamer and content creator with what might be one of the most hype signing videos we’ve ever seen.

The esports org is one of the biggest names in gaming, especially League of Legends, so it makes sense that they signed Tyler – who, besides having a similar name, is also a massive figure in the world of LoL.

This also means that fans can look forward to more of the streamer’s popular collaborations with Lee ‘Faker’ Sang-hyeok, since both are now under the same banner.

Looking fully reformed, we can’t wait to see what Tyler1 and the org manage to come up with together, especially as we get close to the grand finale of Worlds 2020, even though T1 isn’t in attendance this year.

The streaming star seemed pretty excited about the announcement himself, proudly proclaiming himself as the org’s new CEO after watching the video on stream with viewers.

“LoL Tyler1 is joining T1. Officially. By the way, by joining, I mean, Joe Marsh (T1 CEO) is a little b***h, actually a little b***h, so I’m actually running T1,” the streamer joked. “I got full control over everything, I manage the players, manage the staff, pay my own salary. He tried to step up to me, but Joe is really short.”

Esports orgs signing content creators and streamers is certainly nothing new, but Tyler1 is one of the biggest names on Twitch and has been for a while, so it’s easy to see why so many people are excited about the news.

After what could definitely be considered a rough year for North American LoL, not even considering the current global situation preventing live events from happening, one of the most famous League streamers in the game signing with one of the scene’s most well-known teams is certainly a needed breath of fresh air.

He might be Twitch famous for his gaming skills, but one of TSM Myth’s party tricks is his uncanny impressions of fellow streamers. Everyone knows he does a pitch-perfect xQc, but he’s now trying to nail down Trainwrecks too.

xQc, now possibly the biggest streamer on Twitch in terms of average viewership, is perhaps an easy target for Myth, thanks to his very unique way of speaking, and French-Canadian accent.

Still, pulling it off is another thing entirely, and if you close your eyes listening to Myth do his best xQc, you’d hardly be able to tell the difference.

Although the former Overwatch pro might be Myth’s most recognizable impression, he’s also close to mastering others, including Tfue, Summit1g, NICKMERCS, and now Trainwrecks too.

Myth’s attempts at being other streamers are usually excellent.

The current big trend on Twitch is no longer Fortnite, Fall Guys, or even Warzone, but instead a niche party game from 2019 which has become the only thing anyone can talk about: Among Us.

And the content from Trainwrecks and xQc playing the game is ripe for Myth’s impressions, as he demonstrated while streaming alongside IRL broadcaster Jakenbake.

First up, his classic xQc, raging about being voted off as the imposter in Among Us.

But, we’ve seen this before, the real treat was his impersonation of Trainwrecks. To be fair, this one is still a bit of a work in progress, and Train’s much deeper vocals are proving trickier for Myth to master.

Still, his cadence was spot on, so it’s only a matter of time before he can sound exactly like his fellow streamer.

“If his voice were a bit deeper then it would be identical,” one commenter said. “He really nailed the stuttering.”

In the past, xQc has reacted to Myth’s spot-on impressions of him, and could only laugh, calling it “actually good.” We can only imagine what Trainwrecks might have to say about Myth’s attempt at doing him.
