Greekgodx reacts to spending $60 on skins in a completely “dead game”

Popular British Twitch streamer Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos had an incredible reaction after finding out he’d spent $60 on skins in Reflex Arena, only to realize the game has a non-existent player base. 

Greekgodx is one of the most popular Twitch streamers in the UK, regularly entertaining viewers with his IRL content and comedic gameplay. He currently has nearly 900,000 followers and over 35 million channel views on the streaming platform.

On August 19, Greek wanted to try something new to entertain his viewers, downloading highly rated FPS game Reflex Arena – not realizing the game had a very low player count.

Turbo Pixel StudiosThe game is available via the Steam store.

Greek was struggling to open crates in the game, and accidentally purchased way more than he intended to. He seemed very disappointed as he opened the crates, as he realized cosmetics were split into ‘legs’, ‘arms’ and other body parts.

After he spent some time getting through all the crates he’d purchased, Greek customized his character and went to join a lobby, only to come to the realization that there was literally no one to show off his new cosmetics to.

“This game’s dead,” he said. “This game’s dead I just realized. I was wondering why it didn’t queue up, I just realized it’s because this is a dead game.”


The above moment of hilarity was well-received by his Twitch chat, who started joking that the only person online was one of Reflex Arena’s developers.

“I’ve just spent like £50 on skins,” he continued. “And I’ve got scammed. Completely [scammed]!”

Twitch: GreekgodxThe game’s player count showed one player online, much to Greek’s dismay.

After realizing his faux pas, Greek tried to figure out how to get a refund for his purchases, as his viewers continued to revel in the streamer’s misfortune.

Reflex Arena is a first-person shooter, released by Turbo Pixel Studios back in 2014. The game was brought out of early access in 2017, but appears to be struggling for players, as Greek discovered.

Regardless of the game’s struggles, this is one of the funniest Twitch moments we’ve seen in a long time.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
