Reformed Twitch streamer Tyler ‘League of Legends all while donning a Lee Sin “cosplay.”

The streamer is one of the platform’s most explosive personalities; showing bouts of gameplay-induced rages and the like at the drop of a hat. But his audience enjoys Tyler’s antics, especially when he inadvertently trolls himself or his teammates.

For those unfamiliar, Lee Sin is a blind monk in League of Legends who wears a cloth around his eyes. So taking inspiration from the popular jungler, Tyler1 went into his match in a similar fashion with a headband over his eyes – but it was quickly evident he was peering through the bottom of the cloth to see the game.

Tyler1 TwitchT1 sure went out of his way to convince the stream he was blindfolded.

During the opening minutes of the game, he went to the top lane to push the advantage when the enemy Ahri came to respond. A fight broke out when the enemy Shen used Stand United to get back to lane, and it was Tyler’s time to shine.

While “blindfolded” Tyler hit a pixel-perfect Q on the squishy Ahri, allowing him to easily burst her down, leaving the Shen completely alone.

But the fight left him damaged, and with only a Shen left to take care of, the streamer ward-hopped to position himself well enough to ult the enemy away from him.

This was a clutch play since Shen could have made the fight pan out evenly, since it would have been a two-for-two battle. But since the Dragon’s Rage kick flung the foe away, Tyler one was able to survive the hectic engagement.

From the match’s start, his stream’s audience wasn’t so convinced that Tyler1 was actually going to go through with the game without his sight.

“In the spirit of Lee Sin,” Tyler said before the game started as he put on a reverse Village Hidden in the Leaf headband on his face. “I’m actually going to play this game blind. Trust me, I can’t see anything. Take my word for it.”

Tyler1 was trolling everybody, saying that most novice players can’t escape their low elo because they “don’t feel the champion (they’re) playing.”

Even though his viewers easily saw through his ruse, Tyler1 is a great League of Legends player so he might be onto something when channeling his champion during a match.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
