Tyler1 hilariously roasts Riot Games after they gift him Twitch subs

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp is one of the most well-known and controversial League of Legends streamers in the world. So, after Riot Games gifted a huge bundle of subscriptions to his Twitch streams, he decided to roast the developers.

Tyler1 was briefly banned from Twitch before his account was reinstated in 2018, and has since returned to his previous levels of popularity and gone even further, too, making himself one of the most recognizable names in League of Legends and on the platform.

Nowadays, viewers are able to gift subscriptions to streamers, covering the costs of fans who aren’t already subscribed in order to help the creator out.

It’s not often that Riot Games themselves decide to gift subscriptions on Twitch — and they definitely got more than they bargained for when doing so for Tyler1.

Tyler1 has always been known for his funny and over-the-top personality and jokes.

After they gave 50 subscriptions to Tyler, he immediately fought back, wanting something far different from Riot: his League Points (LP).

“Riot Games with those 50 gifts,” he shouted. “Wow. Oh my god that’s a lot of gifts. You know what else is a lot? The amount of f**king LP I lost today you sons of b***hes.”

Joking about how horribly his Ranked games had gone, losing League Points while grinding the game, Tyler continued: “You b***ards. You hear me? I don’t want your f**king gifts I want your f**king LP… but thanks.”

The meek “thanks” at the end is the icing on the cake of a very funny rant that players of League of Legends and just about any game can relate to.

We all know the frustration of feeling like your rank is dropping through no fault of your own, but Tyler1 was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to speak to the developers of the game about it — though we’re not sure there’s much Riot can do about his LP.


xQc explains why his 7-day Twitch ban was actually a good thing

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel finally returned to streaming after receiving a massive seven-day ban for his role in a Fall Guys Twitch Rivals stream sniping controversy. However, according to the French Canadian, the ban was actually good for him.

xQc’s return to Twitch was met with some huge numbers, with over 100,000 viewers packed into his chat.

With such a massive audience, Lengyel explained how, while he expected to be criticized for his actions, he was shocked at how some folks didn’t want him to improve or get better.

“Seeing people not wanting you to move or not wanting you to go past the hurdles, it’s almost like they’re living through you,” he explained. “There’s a lot of them.”

xQc's Twitch viewers upon his return
xQc’s return stream was pulling in huge numbers.

According to the former Overwatch League pro, even after he apologized for his actions, some people were still attacking him for silly reasons.

“‘Oh no, not good enough of an apology, I hope you get perma-banned,’” he paraphrased of his haters. “I hope nobody gets perma-banned and there are people I really dislike in the content creator space, and I wouldn’t want them to get perma-banned.”

His reasoning for this is because he believes people can come back and do better. But he also addressed people claiming that Twitch was using him as an example.

“I don’t think bigger streamers get preferential treatment. And I think that was a good showcase of it,” he added. “I think, out of all the other instances, I think that was a good showcase of me not getting preferential treatment. If anything, I got the full juicer. Seven-day whole thing and I got clapped.”

Twitch has often been accused of giving some larger streamers better treatment than others on the platform, so this was a refreshing revelation from the Laval-born Lengyel.

“Even if, let’s say, I was being used as an example, and they put me out there as an example of doing a bad thing, that’s fine,” he continued. “That’s fine because when we come back, I can also be an example of doing better.”

Hopefully, xQc can make good on this challenge to himself and actually become better, just as suggested.
