The Best League of Legends Streamers

Dota 2 and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are no strangers to the number one spot on Twitch. However, most of the time there's only one game you see in that position... League of Legends. Riot Games' stupendously popular MOBAover 100 million players as reported by the last count—supports fiercely competitive professional leagues all around the world and, of course, has a thriving community of streamers. 

Whether you want to watch the pros, learn from the best, or just wallow in the memes, League  has you covered pretty much 24/7. Here are some of our favorite League of Legends Twitch streamers!

Imaqtpie

The one and only Michael "Imaqtpie" Santana is a former Dignitas ADC who has made a name, and handsome living, for himself entertaining his many thousands of followers on Twitch. Despite living in the US, he tailored his streaming schedule so both European and American viewers can enjoy his fine work in bot lane, where he's often seen punishing well-known opponents on meta champions.

QT's laidback style and long, flowing hairtogether with the neverending stream of $4.20 donationsgive him a unique flair. It's easy to lose entire evenings just watching along as he smilingly outwits endless opponents, often playing alongside friends like Dyrus or Annie Bot.

Bjergsen

Danish mid-laner Soren "Bjergsen" Berg has been the cornerstone of TSM's line-up since 2014 when he first moved to North America, helping his team win three NA LCS championships and even IEM Katowice in 2015. While teammates have come and gone, Bjerg has held firm and become a staple of the region's professional scene.

Like many of the top NA LCS players, he also spends a lot of time streaming, showing us all how it's done on everyone from Ryze to Syndra. If you're looking for endless displays of pure mechanical skill underpinned by fantastic tactical awareness, you've found it.

Nightblue3

Away from the carry lanes, Rabia "Nightblue3" Yazbek is one of the most popular and prolific League of Legends streamers who's infamous for his jungle play. Nightblue3 enjoys joking around with his many followers, but beneath the easygoing demeanor, he's also fantastically good at his role.

Nightblue3 makes the sort of flashy aggressive plays that you and I never manage to pull off, usually emerging with several kills and assists for his team. Check out the Olaf clip below to see what we mean, or just look him up immediately. Nightblue3 keeps a frantic schedule and he's usually the first person you see when you log into Twitch.

Krepo

We've had carries and junglers, so how about a support? Mitch "Krepo" Voorspoels is better known to the League of Legends universe as one of Riot's triple-A casters for the EU LCS, delivering phenomenal analysis in the heat of complex matches week after week and tournament after tournament.

In his downtime, he also likes to stream. He's worth checking out on any champion, but we're particularly fond (as he is) of the Wandering Caretaker, Bard, with whom he is well known for doing outrageous things. Check out the clips below of Krepo's notable Bard highlights. 

KayPea

Another mid-laner with crazy mechanics, Kelsie "KayPea" Pelling is always good value, wrecking fools for several hours a week. She doesn't stream as frequently as some of the other folks on this list, but it's well worth tuning in to catch her Lux, Brand, and Ahri, as you can see in the YouTube highlights clip below. The Brand sequence is particularly good. Who needs a health bar when you've got fire at your fingertips?

Minions Have Spawned

If none of the above takes your fancy, don't worry because when it comes to League of Legends streamers, you are spoiled for choice. Bjergsen's team-mate DoubleLift is another fantastic ADC to followand he's just announced he plans to stream full time in the first half of 2017!

Cloud9's Sneaky is worth checking out too, while ex-TSM top-laner Dyrus is another good watch. Additionally, if you just want a quiet stream to watch gameplay, there's always MushIsGosu, a talented ADC who doesn't do webcams or mics.
