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 MOBA—over 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.

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.

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.
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 follow—and 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-
