Tyler1 has reached Challenger with every role after support win

Streamer Tyler “Tyler1” Steinkamp has reached Challenger in the fifth and final role on his journey to reach the highest rank in all of League of Legends while playing each of the game’s positions.

Tyler1 began as a well-known streamer and bot lane player, particularly associated with Draven and an aggressive play style. Over more recent years, Tyler1 has begun to trank up in other lanes and roles in League of Legends. This began with a spree of playing jungle that saw him move from Draven to Olaf, eventually managing to reach Challenger in his new role.

Tyler1 Challenger journey ends with support win

At that point, the reformed streamer seemed to set his sights on hitting Challenger with every role in League of Legends. From jungle to top lane, top lane to mid lane, and then mid lane to support, the journey continued. On February 19, a late-night solo queue victory with Nautilus completed this multi-year journey. Tyler’s reaction was as boisterous and loud as one would expect from the popular streamer.

After his victory, Tyler1 would go on to say that support had been the easiest role to play during his journey. While he attributed this to the ease of the role, having Challenger-level experience in every other role before making his way to support certainly eased the transition. Tyler’s first-hand knowledge of matchups, lane states, and the needs of his teammates makes him well cut out for the role. Fans were excited to see him achieve this latest accomplishment, and a post celebrating the achievement quickly hit the front page of the League of Legends subreddit.

After thousands of games across all five roles, Tyler1 has achieved something that no other play on the planet may have achieved before. Of the players that reach Challenger, few can compete in multiple roles at such a high level, and even fewer have made it with all five.
