Early Life, Family, and Education
Unfortunately, Tyler has managed to hide most intimate details from his earliest years, also including the identity of his parents. However, it has been discovered that Tyler has a brother, Eric, who is also a League of Legends player, but on a lower level. When it comes to his education, after finishing high school, Tyler studied computer science at Central Methodist University.
Once League of Legends started becoming more popular, Tyler took up playing it more seriously, and over the time became a professional player.
Tyler started his own YouTube channel in 2014, but it wasn’t until 2016 that he posted his first video; nevertheless, his popularity within LOL community rapidly reached millions, but it wasn’t his good games that made him popular, rather his toxic behavior. He would often swear, yell and make racist comments, which actually made him rather popular, or perhaps notorious. With every new YouTube video, Tyler would attract more followers, reaching over one million subscribers. His YouTube videos have now been viewed over 170 million times, which has not only increased his popularity, but his wealth as well.
Once he set up a fan base on YouTube, he began building a following on Twitch. He started streaming his games, which brought more fans, and in no time he had over 1.5 million followers on Twitch, although his toxic behavior made him popular with some, but also hated by others.
Banned from the Game
This behavior ultimately resulted in a Ban on Sight- a rule made just for Tyler, forbidding him to play the game from any account set-up by him. This happened in mid- 2016, and lasted over 600 days until the 5th January 2018; Tyler announced through his Twitter account that the ban had been lifted, and he is able to play again. The tweet became viral, and many celebrated his comeback, including Tyler himself. Since then, he has been streaming again, but before being fully reinstated, he had to undergo a month free of coarse language, racist slurs, and aggressive behavior while playing the game.
Tyler1 Net Worth
Tyler earns money by playing games; the majority of you would probably think that is a stupid way, and not even a real job. However, Tyler can boast himself to have a solid wealth. So, have you ever wondered how rich Tyler1 is, as of mid- 2018? Well, according to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Tyler1’s wealth is as high as $400,000 – pretty awesome for a video game player, don’t you think?
Life Behind the Scenes
When it comes to his life outside YouTube and LOL, Tyler is quite secretive about it. However, the media has discovered that he is in a relationship with a girl named Macaiyla. The two met at TwitchCon2016, and started a relationship several weeks later.
