Popular streamer Tyler ‘Tyler1‘ Steinkamp had the perfect response after Rabia ‘Nightblue3’ Yazbek tried to roast his skills in League of Legends

When it comes to non-professional players streaming League of Legends, there is perhaps no bigger name than Tyler1. The 24-year-old has racked up close to 3 million followers during his six years on the livestreaming platform. 

Even though he goes on winning streaks every now and again, the majority of his streams contain him raging at a teammate after they do something stupid or roasting a viewer when they try to take shots at him. Yet, when he was riding high in a Twitch Rivals event, Nightblue3 tried to bring him down a notch. 

Twitch: Tyler1

As he was preparing to watch opposing teams enter Summoner’s Rift for the November 25 round of play, Tyler1 was waiting for the action to begin when a viewer sent him a clip of Nightblue3 trying to roast him. 

“Is Tyler better than me? No, he’s s**t. He gets carried every game and his jungler gets out jungled every game, facts,” said the former Team SoloMid substitute. 

However, it didn’t take Tyler long to respond in hysterical fashion. The popular streamer immediately took his perfect 6-0 record counter and began twirling around on stream as the clip continued playing out. 

Yet, T1 didn’t remain speechless, as he fired back with some comments of his own. “Delusion. It is a sickness that needs to be cured,” he said, before getting back to watching the stream of the other matches.

With his team progressing through to the semi-finals, Tyler was able to kick back and relax while scouting out LoL players like ImaQtPie and 100 Thieves’ Yassou – who he has gone head-to-head with on a number of occasions.

However, he’ll have to wait to get his hands on Nightblue3, as the former TSM substitute’s squad is on the other side of the bracket to T1’s team.

It could, very well, make for an epic Twitch Rivals final match-up though, and it’d certainly be a victory that Tyler1 would hold over his LoL counter-parts for quite some time.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
