Tyler1 is infamous for his toxic attitude in League of Legends. News of his ban spread like wildfire in 2015, and his return stream in late 2017 broke records on Twitch at the time.
Macaiyla’s own ban, which she says took place over a year ago, was due to some fiery chat logs that landed her in trouble with Riot, with her account given the ultimate punishment.
After reviewing the ban on stream on November 12, she mocked boyfriend Tyler1 for receiving praise from fans despite being more toxic than her.
While checking over the old chat logs that resulted in the account’s ban, Macaiyla laid into her boyfriend’s in-game attitude, and the fans who blindly support him claiming that he’s “reformed.”
“Tyler does this every f**king day,” she said. “Tyler literally does this all the time, spams “open, ff, open, ff,” — dogs.”
She went so far as to call Tyler1’s biggest fans “white knights” and delusional, turning a blind eye to their favorite streamer’s own toxic attitude.
“You’re such white knights, he doesn’t give a f**k about you by the way,” she said. “I love how you guys white knight him so much but he literally does this exact shit on stream. It’s crazy that you love him so much.”
Macaiyla tried to grasp why her account had been banned over one player-reported chat log, whereas there are players out there like Tyler1, who type similar messages frequently.
“It’s unbelievable that for one second of your lives that you can’t take your head out of your a** and realize that Tyler is a million times more toxic than I’ve been in so long,” she said. “You just want his c**k in your mouth so much for some reason — you just want to swallow a load of his.
“You have to understand that he does a lot of worse things than other people do in League, it’s pretty crazy.”
Why was Macaiyla banned from League of Legends?
Macaiyla’s account named ‘HYPUHS’ was banned by Riot for toxicity after “a player triggered review found [her] in-game comms extremely inflammatory and offensive.”
She was given an example of one game, where she flamed her team and asked the enemy team to “just f**king end.” She then spammed “open” in chat a number of times before the game finished.
League of Legends accounts that have been permabanned for toxicity have no avenue for appeal, which Macaiyla was attempting to do, although most players can start anew with a fresh account.
However, in extreme cases, some players get IP banned, hardware banned, or have their accounts banned on sight. This was what happened to Tyler1 Tyler1 during 2015 to 2017, which forced the prominent streamer to disappear underground and play on hidden accounts for almost two years.
Either way, it appears Macaiyla feels pretty hard done-by with this ban.
Update: A previous version of this article incorrectly stated that Macaiyla’s ban took place on November 12. The initial ban actually took place over a year ago, and the article has been updated to correct this error.
