Controversial League of Legends streamer Tyler1 has announced that he may be allowed to play League of Legends again. After a review due to take place in January 2018, the ID Ban against Tyler1 may be lifted.

An ID ban means that any account that Tyler1 is found to be playing on will be automatically ban. The streamer earned this punishment in 2016 for a string of offenses that resulted in over 20 of his accounts being banned.
In a video on Twitch, Tyler1 read a statement that said he is up for review if he can prove that any and all of the accounts he has played on in the month leading up the review are “clean,” or undeserving of a ban. If that’s the case, Tyler1 will be “free to play League publically.”
That doesn’t mean he’ll be getting his accounts unbanned. A Reddit comment from Rioter The_Cactopus says that Riot’s policy on permabans isn’t changing, but it’s Tyler1’s ID ban that is being reversed. He stresses that “nobody is getting special treatment of getting any banned accounts unbanned.”
Tyler1 is keen to show that he’s reformed since his days as the self-proclaimed ‘most toxic player’ on League of Legends’ North American server. Recently, Rioter Aaron Rutledge was fired from the company for implying he hoped Tyler would die, prompting the streamer to tweet saying “it really sucks that some people still hold a massive grudge vs old T1 and refuse to acknowledge I’ve changed.”
