Tyler1 talks about trying to be less loud

Tyler1 said that he was going to try and keep his volume to the minimum to be respectful to those around his accommodation. He said, “We are on this sweet room and we rented out all the rooms alongside of us. So people aren’t supposed to be able to hear me but bro, its like 5.50 am. It’s not beta. Guys, I’m being respectful.” He added that even when he’s just talking, he is very loud in general and that he’s going to be “a little bit quieter.

Tyler1 meets Midbeast at the gym

Tyler1 said that he and Macaiyla got their gym membership to work out while in Korea. When a viewer in chat asked him if it was the hotel’s gym, Tyler1 clarified that it was not and narrated how he ran into League of Legends streamer Drew “Midbeast” Timbs at the hotel gym. “Bro, I went to look at the hotel gym first. Guess who I see sitting there? What are the odds? It’s... What’s his name? Beast of Mid or Little Guy Mid? Midbeast, that’s his name. [he] was sitting on the bench when I went to go look at the hotel gym.

Playing on a Riot account

Tyler1 stated that he will be playing on a low elo (Low Skill) Riot Games account since he does not have time to level up to 30 from scratch. He stated that he already missed a day because of his flight getting delayed.

So this is gonna be a Riot account. I did not level it up myself. But it should be a low elo Riot account. It is not cheating,” said tyler1. He further explained that there are three kinds of Riot accounts – level one accounts, Silver MMR (Match Making Rating) accounts, and Diamond MMR accounts. He added that his Korean account 'Big Tonka T' is a silver one.

Currently, tyler1 and Macaiyla are staying at the same hotel where Midbeast, and other League of Legends streamers including Ashkan “TF Blade” Homayouni are staying. After Day 1 in Korea, tyler1 is Gold IV with a win-loss record of 19-2, according to OP.GG.
