Popular League of Legends streamer Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp has explained the reasons why he will never be banned from the game. 

Tyler1 is no doubt the most popular League of Legends streamer in the world, drawing in tens of thousands of views on Twitch with his entertaining content on a daily basis. 

He is well known for becoming ‘reformed’ after being banned for verbal abuse in 2016 and attempting to turn over a new leaf. This led to him being unbanned at the start of 2018 and exploding in popularity, and now he has even gone as far as to claim that he’ll never be banned from the game again.

Tyler1 is the biggest League of Legends streamer out there.

The American made the bold claim during a usual LoL stream on March 2, where he confidently backed himself to never be banned. “Do you think I would ever get banned? I’m literally the face of this dead, dying game. That’s the truth,” he began, before diving into more reasons.

“Second of all, I’m innocent, I didn’t do anything wrong, and thirdly, Riot can’t ban me because I’m black.” Of course, the last reason was a bit of a joke from Tyler and he immediately made it clear. “I’m kidding, I’m kidding, but… there are not many popular brothers on League so… I don’t know,” He joked again.

However, he did make a great point with his first reason. He is by far the most popular League of Legends streamer and if Riot Games were to ban him, again, then they could possibly be losing out on a ton of exposure to casual viewers. 

Steinkamp has also appeared in official tournament broadcasts, most recently the LCS finals, and many see him as an integral part of the community.

So, while Tyler1 is by no means immune from a ban, it is very likely that he wouldn’t be banned from the game unless he does something incredibly wrong, which he will likely do his best to avoid.


LS reveals how xQc reached out to him during T1 fans backlash

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
