League of Legends Ban
On April 30, 2016, Tyler was ID banned indefinitely by Riot Games (the company behind League of Legends) due to verbal abuse and for his consistently toxic behavior on stream. Note – ID ban results in any account a player creates getting banned immediately.
”Because of a well-documented history of account bans for verbal abuse, intentional feeding, as well as account sharing/purchasing, evasion of sportsmanship systems, and player harassment, we will not allow Tyler1 to hold a League of Legends account, indefinitely,” Riot Socrates wrote in an official statement. He added: ”Any account definitively used by him will be banned immediately upon identification.”
At one point, Steinkamp declared himself LoL’s ”most toxic player.”
In November 2017, he hosted an online LoL tournament called the Tyler1 Championship Series (TCS). Famous streamers participated in the tournament, including Marcus “Dyrus” Hill, William “scarra” Li, and Michael “Imaqtpie” Santana. The tournament peaked around 200,000 concurrent viewers on Twitch. The winning team was awarded $10k, entirely funded by Steinkamp.
Tyler was unbanned on LoL on January 4, 2018.
”AFTER 613 DAYS OF INTENSE REHAB I AM FINALLY UNBANNED FROM LEAGUE OF LEGENDS,” Tyler tweeted.
In the first stream (January 8), his Twitch channel peaked a viewer count of 386,000. It broke the previous record set by T1’s Lee “Faker” Sang-hyeok in 2017. The stream lasted around 11 hours.
On January 31, 2018, Tyler’s Twitch channel already had 30,000 subs on Twitch.
In November 2018, Steinkamp hosted his League of Legends tournament for the second time. It had a prize pool of $50,000. ”Thank you, everyone who was a part of this, including the community casters, behind the scenes guys, and all the players,” Steinkamp wrote on Twitter.
In the same month, he was voted as the runner-up for “Streamer of the Year” at the Esports Awards.
In March 2019, Steinkamp lost a $10,000 bet to Yassuo. They made a bet to see who could climb the highest in LoL starting with an unranked account.
In 2019, The Tyler1 Championship Series had 16 teams who fought for a prize money of $50,000.
”We are going official, huge stadium next TCS – we’re flying everybody in, it’s going to be fucking huge,” Tyler hinted about The Tyler1 Championship Series 2020.
In October 2020, Steinkamp inked a deal with South Korean esports team T1 as a content creator.
He has a good relationship with Faker, who is also part of T1. ”Whenever I see him, he greets me with the brightest smile,” Faker said about Tyler. ”I have a very positive impression of him.”
