After reaching Challenger in solo queue, popular streamer Tyler1 has been the centerpiece of numerous discussions in the League of Legends community. Another popular League banner, Voyboy, applauded Tyler1 for his success after grumbling about toxicity in the solo queue a couple of weeks earlier.

Doublelift chimed into the discussion with his opinion on how Voyboy’s praise opposes the solo line issues Voyboy expressed in previous weeks.

” I believe it was pretty funny that VoyBoy retweeted [Tyler1],” Doublelift said. “Cause Voy’s the one who was like ‘Yeah, League solo queue, people leave, they troll, they’re actually harmful, it’s the worst it’s ever been’ … why are you praising the guy that is extremely harmful and embodies what you hate in solo queue?”

Tyler1 was prohibited forever in 2016 for the very thing that triggered his fame and grew his fanbase– his unyielding toxicity. Considering that then, after allegedly seeing the error of his ways, he’s been trying to alter the general public’s perception of him from the “most toxic player NA” to the “most reformed player NA.” In 2018 Riot Games modified their decision and unbanned him during their assessment.

Even though he has been back in the scene for over two years, he still occasionally goes back to his old methods, in some cases trolling or tossing the video game away intentionally.

This attitude is far too familiar to anybody who has been playing League of Legends’s solo line, which is notorious for having a poor penalty system for people who break the guidelines. There’s dozens of cases where people troll video games by passing away continuously or going AFK around the map to bypass the detection system. While Riot has been singing about this issue and says it is attempting to repair it, the faces of League have a substantial part in it as well.

If goods deeds and mindset are promoted, then the fan base will most likely follow and attempt to reach the exact same popularity by following the standards. When the standards are blended and you have both positive and negative kinds of attitudes, the fan bases will be blended too.

CLG’s creator, HotShotGG joined the discussion about toxicity and how Riot has actually been hesitant to listen to his feedback which has been provided over the years to repair the solo line problems and make the environment more satisfying for everybody.

Going forward, Riot must take a close appearance at what its partners are promoting, especially during live streams to ensure that they are complying with the guidelines and promoting etiquette. If the most-watched streamers go unpunished for a specific type of behavior, why wouldn’t his audiences do the exact same?
