Steinkamp aka Tyler1 is a well known Twitch streamer on the game League of Legends. From 2014 to 2016, he had a modest following on the platform, but he later became more toxic. He verbally abused others, lost games on purpose and encouraged players to commit suicide.
His behavior was then punished by Riot Games who banned him from playing League of Legends.
After the ban, he continued to stream but on more eccentric stuff and also played a lot of PUBG.
In 2018, Steinkamp’s ban from League of Legends was lifted and he started streaming the game again. He got a record of 382,000 concurrent viewers on the platform which broke Faker’s record in 2017.
