He went on to say that there was no particular reason and it was a mutual decision by both parties to go their separate ways:

“There is no real reason. It’s reciprocal. There is no specific reason.

A viewer in his chat told him to try the corporate speech, at which he laughed and said:

“I am not a brand. It wasn’t because of a brand risk. In fact, it is not. I don’t take the brand risk.

Tyler’s professional relationship with T1 began as a gag short for T1 in 2019. He was eventually signed to the organization in October 2020. Tyler has been featured in numerous YouTube and social media posts for l ‘organization.
