A Word from Tyler1

June 26, 2024

Supsup y'all, It’s Tyler1!

Streaming with you guys has been an incredible journey, and I’ve loved every second of it. That's why I wanted to give back.

Today, I’m pumped to share what I've been working on for the last 6 months: Backseat AI, your new in-game bud for League that gives you live coaching, stats, and vibes to level you up.

With Backseat, I want to change the way people play and get better at League.

I started Backseat AI with people just as passionate about gaming and creating as I am and are ex-pros / creators themselves.

Our AI lead Vee played in Southeast Asian pro League scene back in season 6, and our CBO Marcel is someone who you may know as Lemondogs and CLG's old jungler Dexter.

What is Backseat, anyway?

I’ve always believed that having the right strategy and encouragement can make all the difference in each game.

Backseat AI is like having me in the game with you, giving you whatever you need whenever you need it, like:

  • Live Coaching: Real-time insights and commentary for each match.
  • Post-Game Lobby: How your past games went, and how you can get better.
  • Pre-Game Tips (Soon): Everything you need to prep for a W (picks, runes, etc.), straight from the pros.
  • Talkback (Soon): Ask me anything about League or your match, or anything really.
  • Team Mode (Soon):  Bring the Backseat action to your whole squad.

Whether it’s dodging that skillshot or making the perfect play, I’ll right there with you.  We're even working with other creators to bring them in as Backseat buds too.

Let's build Backseat together

Creating Backseat AI wasn’t a walk in the park, especially because we're working with a lot of cutting-edge tech.

We’ve put in countless hours building, tested it to the limit, and made sure it's both helpful and fun. But here’s the deal: we're very much still at the alpha, the starting line of something big.

This is where you come in. Community testing and feedback is crucial to making Backseat the best it can be, which is why we're excited to open waitlist signups for the first Alpha test today. We'll accept more testers every couple of days as we sprint towards the next stage.

If you want to get instant access and support our team, we have an optional founders subscription for Backseat Premium, starting at $4.99 per month. Subscribers get awesome perks, including access to early access to new features, pro features, community events, and a sick merch kit for annual subs!

Again, we're still super early, so expect bugs, issues and some missing features when testing and only subscribe if you are financially capable and want to be part of the journey. And don't worry, Backseat AI will always have a free tier!

Final Thoughts

This is just the start. We plan constantly making Backseat better with your feedback. Join our Discord, share your thoughts, and let’s build this together.

Being the CEO has been a crazy ride, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thanks for all the support and your future feedback. Stay tuned for more updates, and feel free to reach out to us at hello@backseat.gg.

Catch you on the Rift!
