Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar highlighted one issue with CS:GO after an unusual death in-game during his March 28 broadcast.

Summit1g has built a massive following of over 4.3 million followers on his Twitch channel and is known for playing a wide variety of games on his stream.

The Twitch star initially blew up on CS:GO, however, and after making his return to the popular FPS title, summit explained why the game still had some problems that needed to be addressed.

Summit1g has had many entertaining moments on CS:GO including his unfortunate Molotov fail.

During his March 28 broadcast, summit1g made his return to CS:GO competing in FPL Pick-up matches alongside the likes of former Cloud9 star Freakazoid.

While holding the A bombsite on Mirage, Summit burst into rage after being killed by an enemy who appeared to be in mid-air during their gunfight in Palace.

CS:GO players are often left with very inaccurate aim for a brief period during and after their character jumps, but these rules did not seem to apply to his opponent, as he explained just how ridiculous it was.

“Let me tell you what happens if I jump,” he said, jumping out of his chair to reenact the event, “This is where when you play and when other people play it’s different in Counter-Strike.”

“When you’re watching that guy he jumps, lands, insta headshots you,” summit explained, “even if he doesn’t land, he jumps, insta headshots you and then lands.”

When explaining what should happen for “normal humans” in CS:GO, he pointed out how inaccurate his opponent’s rounds should have been and claimed that the game doesn’t make sense.

“To normal humans like us, we jump, we land, our guy acts like he has to settle his body, then you can shoot your AK, cause if you shoot it any earlier, it’s not accurate at all, it doesn’t work like that I’m telling you, it doesn’t make sense this game,” he said.

After making his return to CS:GO, summit1g also voiced his concerns around the infamous SG 553 or “Krieg” rifle suggesting that it has been too much of an issue in-game and revealed that he was looking forward to seeing how Valorant fares against the popular title.

Ahead of 100 Thieves’ announced departure from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Mathew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag came under a bit of fire for disinterest in his org’s finals match at IEM New York and, subsequently, admonished by ESL for streaming the event.

Nadeshot came home to Los Angeles after 12 hours of travel and was excited to stream some of the Black Ops Cold War open beta for the first time, but, as the stream started, he also mentioned that he wouldn’t be responding to chat as much as usual because 100T was facing Furia in the IEM New York Grand Finals.

Unfortunately, some found it disappointing that the organization’s founder would multitask and play another game during his team’s final CS:GO match ever, with former pro Chad ‘SPUNJ’ Burchill even calling him out.

With people like SPUNJ discrediting Nade’s loyalty to his team and Black Ops Cold War coincidentally crashing, the 100T CEO attempted to switch over to the big match. But, in another string of disappointments, that idea wasn’t meant to be either.

After trying to watch the Grand Finals with about 13,000 viewers, Nade received word that this re-stream was against ESL guidelines and that he was not allowed to do so.

Frustratedly, he returned to his initial Black Ops Cold War plans and expressed some understanding, as well as disappointment with the tournament organizers’ decision.

“At the end of the day, I get it from a business perspective on ESL’s standpoint,” Nadeshot said. “I mean, they pay for broadcast rights and they’re putting on this tournament and all these things.

But, from my perspective, I have all of their sponsors and broadcast assets on my stream … I’m essentially just on a soapbox right now, blasting the stream but with just 12-13,000 more viewers.”

As he explained on stream, by putting the stream on full screen without any of his brandings, he felt that he was just giving the official broadcast more exposure. But, ultimately, he understands why the decision was made.

In a later clip, following his return to streaming BOCW, the 100T head honcho added further clarification.

While affirming that he fully understands why he wasn’t allowed to re-stream the event and that he respects ESL’s business decisions, he felt that this situation was unique and could have been handled differently: “Well, I got your logos up here, I’ve got none of my sponsors up here. Can’t we just make an exception?”

First criticized for not giving his team’s play enough attention and then reprimanded for giving it too much attention, this wasn’t one of Nadeshot’s more fortunate streams. Still, he understands why ESL came down on him and, perhaps more importantly, he did eventually get to play BOCW without his PC crashing.
