Popular Twitch star Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp hilariously roasted fellow content creator Nightblue3 over League of Legends rank, after catching up to him with an alternate account.

During his latest broadcasts, Tyler1 has been focused on racing to the challenger rank while only playing as a jungler, following claims that the role was too underpowered.

Despite significant nerfs to the experience gained from jungle camps, Tyler1 was determined to prove it was still one of the most influential roles in the game.

Tyler1 is quickly climbing the ranks after taking on a new role as a jungler in League of Legends.

The streamer initially got off to a rough start and had some struggles escaping the gold division, although since then he has been quickly climbing up the ranks in his new role – even catching up to the popular jungle main Nightblue3.

Nightblue3 has built a massive following of over 2.7 million subscribers on YouTube and 2.6 million followers on Twitch. He is well known for uploading tutorials and tricks for other jungle players to follow.

However, after the popular YouTube star went on an unfortunate losing streak, Tyler1 did not hold back from rubbing in the fact that he had now caught up to him on the North American ladder. Both of them now rank in the lower half of the Diamond division.


“Oh no no no! You’ve been playing this role for how long?” Tyler1 asked, before bringing up the both of their ranks side-by-side and pointing out Nightblue’s streak, “Aye dogsh*t, Nightblue, go to bed dude.”

“Go to bed, you’re going to end the day in f**king silver” he joked, before continuing the onslaught after realizing the star had been tweeting about his losing streak.

“He just tweeted this like five f**king seconds ago! “’League of Legends is 100% luck-based,’ these f**king jungle mains!” he laughed, throwing his hands up in the air in disbelief.

Many viewers had their doubts about Tyler1’s ability to climb the ranks outside of his usual role as ADC. However, he seems to be proving them wrong and is nearing the end of his “unranked to challenger” series, although he is now faced with his most difficult challenge yet, to make it out of Diamond division.

Rell nerfs on League patch 11.3 makes Iron Maiden less tanky

Rell is getting a hefty set of nerfs in League of Legends patch 11.3 to make the Iron Maiden less tanky. However, they could have a knock-on effect, where full AP Rell takes over the meta.

Rell has been a rather interesting addition to the League of Legends roster. The first champion in preseason 11 struggled to find her way into the meta at the start, but then has exploded as a power pick in recent patches.

Now, Riot are toning her back. Her utility is just a little bit too strong to justify some of her damage values ⁠— at least in her base kit.

Rell is getting some nerfs in League patch 11.3.

The current changes on the League of Legends PBE include nerfs to her W shield, while buffing its damage ratio. Her E is getting nerfed all around ⁠— damage and resistances. Her R, on the other hand, is getting an AP ratio buff.

The changes have led to a mixed response from the community. While Rell mains feel like Riot are trying to streamline her into just maxing Q, Riot are trying to just nerf the rest of her kit to be more in line with her Q, rather than risk increasing her already high win-rate before.

“The goal of the change-list is to very slightly nerf her, and also skew her slightly back towards Q max being correct by weakening the durability gained with each W point. The AP ratios are mostly just extra and aren’t much power at all unless going Shurelya’s,” developer Ray Yonggi said.

“It’s not because we want them to specifically have more damage, it’s because we want all 4 abilities to feel like they are pulling their weight, and unfortunately Q doesn’t feel like it when it’s not maxed.”

However, the increase of AP ratios ⁠— including an extra 40% AP on her ultimate ⁠— have players weary of the potential of full AP Rell. With 110% AP on her ultimate, as well as 60% AP on her Q, she could nuke enemies with a full AP build.

Card

Riot are still tinkering with the buffs, but they’re trying to make sure Rell stays true to her tank identity ⁠— just with a little bit less power right off the bat.

“Basic idea around the Q thing was that Q feels really wimpy if not maxed, but W feels effective no matter what, so the character can feel more punchy if Q max was what people did more often, as it increases the damage and healing per point,” Yonggi added.

The Rell changes are expected to go through with League patch 11.3, penned in for February 3.
