Early life and education

Career on Twitch
Eric launched his Twitch channel ‘erobb221’ on 22 July 2015. By this time, his brother who goes by the alias ‘tyler1’, had already become active on the platform, and helped Eric gain more viewers himself.

Who is erobb221’s brother tyler1?
Tyler Steinkamp was born in Missouri on 7 March 1995 – his zodiac sign is Pisces, and he holds American nationality. He’s a Twitch streamer and a social media star, perhaps known best for livestreaming his gameplays of the popular multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA) game “League of Legends”.
Before his Twitch career took off, Tyler was a Computer Science student at Central Methodist University, and during his time there, played as a running back for the university’s football team. After finishing his second year, he dropped out so he could focus full-time on streaming.
Tyler launched his Twitch channel on 14 November 2013, but even though he was very active from the beginning, he had a modest following until 2016.
In 2014, he ranked 14th on the North American “League of Legends” servers, but he soon became notorious among other players, due to his toxic behavior shown on his streams. He was permanently banned from playing on the 22 unique accounts he’d created.
In April 2016, Tyler announced that he was working on his behavior, saying that he has ‘reformed’; following this announcement, his Twitch channel quickly increased in popularity. Although he soon returned to his old habits of harassing other players, his popularity continued to grow, which prompted several professional “League of Legends” players and other prominent figures in the gaming community to comment on the issue. On 30 April 2016, Riot Games announced that Tyler would no longer be allowed to own a “League of Legends” account, which is something that had happened only a few times in the game’s history.
Despite the ban, Tyler was determined to continue his Twitch career, so he branched out to playing other video games, and making more eccentric content. In January 2018, he gained media attention when his permanent ban was lifted, and in April the same year, when he acted out a comedy movie about his life, entitled “A Day in the Life of Tyler1”. In October 2020, he was signed as a content creator for the South Korean e-sports team T1.
Today, Tyler is one of the 50 most followed people on Twitch, with his account numbering almost 4.5 million followers, and over 260 million total views.
Tyler is 26 years old. He has short black hair and brown eyes, is 5ft 6ins (1.68m) tall, and weighs around 175lbs (79kgs).
As of September 2021, his net worth is estimated at more than $4.3 million.
