Tyler1 Responds to Nemesis' Opinion About His Rank in Korean Solo Queue
Tyler “tyler1” Steinkamp has started his auto-fill to Challenger run on the Korean server. After landing in South Korea, tyler1 has been playing League of Legends Solo Queue on a Riot Games account that is reportedly Silver MMR (Matchmaking Rating). The community is closely monitoring the North American Challenger player (on all five roles) to see how far he goes in the most competitive region in League of Legends.
Cloud9’s former League of Legends head coach Nick “LS” De Cesare has already stated that tyler1 might not be able to achieve Challenger in Korea. He said, “Tyler climbed by being smarter than NA (North American) players, while also having advantageous ping. On Korea, the problem is Silver and Gold players will have better mechanics than Tyler’s used to playing in his average games.”
True to this statement, it seems like tyler1 is having a hard time in Silver and Gold lobbies. At the time of writing, tyler1 was ranked Gold II with 75 LP, according to .
Former pro player Tim “Nemesis” Lipovšek shared his two cents on tyler1’s journey to the top of the leaderboard in Korea.
Nemesis says tyler1 will not reach Challenger
On a recent stream, Nemesis reacted to a clip of Tyler1 playing Annie and pointed out the really obvious mistakes he was making while playing the champion.
Nemesis said, “You know how SoloRenektonOnly has a rage montage? Someone should make a montage of Tyler1 fail montage because every time I watch tyler1 play, he just fails everything possible.”
He further explained how, as Annie, tyler1 could have used his point-and-click ability Q - Disintegrate rather than using W - Incinerate first. “This is just embarrassing man. Ah, man! Goddamnit. Listen, I said tyler1 is not reaching Challenger and I stand by my point. I don’t think he’s going to reach Challenger unless he plays support.”
Tyler1 responds to Nemesis
Tyler1 acknowledged that support is his best role after Nemesis stated that he would not reach Challenger unless he plays support. Tyler1 said, “But the poor guy has no best role. The poor guy has no career, professionally or as a streamer. Trust me. Poor guy. Imagine waking up every morning and looking in the mirror. That’s losers’ queue, bro. GG!” However, he added that it was only banter.
Nemesis is currently a streamer for Gen.G and is good friends with LS. They often produce League of Legends content together, co-stream professional games, and also coach other players.
