For anyone who plays “League of Legends”, twitch streamer loltyler1 is a familiar name. A short backstory: Between April 2016 and January 2018, Tyler Skeinkamp was banned from playing “League of Legends” for disruptive behaviours towards other gamers and that earned him the title of “The Most Toxic Player in North America”. The online personality has since reformed and, to date, he has more than 4.3 million followers on Twitch. That said, loltyler1’s personality is as loud as ever; his live in-game commentaries and reactions are often meme-worthy and hilarious. All these make him an entertaining pick to catch on Twitch.

2.  shroud

Canadian Twitch streamer and YouTuber Michael Grzesiek, better known as shroud, was a former professional “Counter-Strike: Global Offensive” player.

4.  iitzTimmy

iitzTimmy is known to set and break the world records in the first-person shooter video game, “Apex Legends”.
