Tyler1 ‘congratulates’ Tarzaned for “tryhard” LoL Twitch Rivals victory

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp has had a cheeky dig at former Twitch Rivals teammate Julian ‘Tarzaned’ Farokhian after he won his second consecutive LoL Showdown alongside Ashkan ‘TF Blade’ Homayouni, labelling them “tryhards.”

The first Twitch Rivals LoL Showdown has wrapped up for 2020, with TF Blade’s team consisting of a mix of solo queue and collegiate talent taking home the title. For Tarzaned, it was his second win in a row, after collecting the trophy for himself back in November with Tyler1 on his side.


However, the AD carry prodigal son of North America had something to say about his teammate defecting and continuing his streak in the streamer tournament.


While reading the Reddit post-match comments after defeating Voyboy’s Genius Gang to take home the title once again, Tarzaned received a message from his former captain asking for a chat.

“Tyler wants me to call him, f**k I’m kinda nervous,” he said, before answering the call and getting assaulted by a mouthful from Tyler1.

“What’s up you piece of sh*t,” the AD carry said, before criticizing Tarzaned’s win. “Gonna tell you right now dipsh*t that your team was f**king dogsh*t. I had a hard time f**king watching because they were so bad mechanically.


“First of all, how did that fucking L taste? Huh? Enjoy being 9-1, dogsh*t.”

Tarzaned just sat quietly on the other end of the line, quipping back with a few lines about how his team “won off macro” and that “Ekko isn’t balanced,” reasoning their loss. But Tyler1 didn’t buy a bar of it, continuing on with his tirade.


“Secondly, congrats bro, you f**king drafted a sweaty team. None of us even care. None of us even gave a f**k. Dude, read the f**king room, nobody gave a f**k about the tournament and you drafted tryhard. Last tournament was tryhard, this tournament was content, you little sweatster.”

Tarzaned retorted, saying that the reason everyone hates on NA as a region is because people don’t care about these tournaments. “The reason why NA is weak is because no one cares, like you. I have nothing else going for me so I have to try as hard,” he said.


Tyler1 did acknowledge the fact, but warned his rival to make sure the glory “doesn’t go to [his] head.”

“I’ll see you next Twitch Rivals, I swear to God, you f**king b*tch,” he said, before leaving the call.

Tarzaned did do a bit of deciphering between the lines to read the kindness in Tyler’s words, no matter how bitter they sounded.“Thanks for the kind words man, love you too. That’s my ex-captain, I miss him.”

After helping Tyler1 and Shadow Dogs Unleashed last year, Tarzaned walked away with more Twitch Rivals success under TF Blade. With a couple of titles under his belt now, he will be hot property come the next Twitch Rivals draft, where Tyler1 will certainly be looking to secure his services once again.


Dellor shocked as Twitch finally unbans him after over a year

After just over one year following his permanent ban from Twitch, dellor’s channel has been reinstated on the platform. The former Overwatch pro now says it’s his “second chance.”

Matt ‘dellor’ Vaughn has had a turbulent streaming career – he was dropped from his Overwatch team, Toronto Esports, after a racist outburst, effectively ending his career as a pro player.


Then, in 2019, he was banned from Twitch after telling his female teammate in Apex Legends to “cook a sandwich.” This ban originally earned him an indefinite suspension, before it was reduced to 30 days.

Upon his return however, his partnership had been revoked, leaving him without a sub button, seriously impacting his income. Then, in October 2019, dellor was “banned indefinitely for “self-harm” for breaking a keyboard on stream.”


Dellor streaming on Twitch

This ban prompted the hashtag #freedellor on Twitter, as fans thought the permanent ban was harsh. But, Twitch kept firm, and dellor eventually moved to streaming on YouTube instead.

He pleaded with Twitch to allow him back onto the platform on a handful of occasions. Finally, on October 6, seemingly out of the blue, dellor’s channel was reinstated, and his ban lifted.

“I had given up all hope,” dellor said on Twitter. “After everything I have said about them, Twitch actually unbanned me.”


His channel, complete with over 550,000 followers (and likely more as Twitch rebuilds the follow count after a suspension), is fully intact.

This doesn’t mean though that he will necessarily return to streaming on Twitch though. Being unbanned on the platform at least means he is able to play with friends who are streaming on Twitch themselves.

He is still not partnered on the platform and does not have a subscribe button. He will still be able to earn money through donations, but to access subscriptions or bits will need to become a Twitch affiliate.


However, if he wants to become a partner again, it would mean stopping his YouTube streams altogether, where he has now built up a following since his time away from Twitch.
