We’re not sure that the Radical Heights developers will invite popular streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar to play in their next tournament after an awkward outburst.

The year is 2018 and that means when a developer wants people to play their games, instead of the usual advertisement, they turn to influencers for promotion.

Alongside just paying popular streamers and content creators to play their game, they also organize tournaments so there’s something a little more on the line than public matches.

Radical Heights is an independently developed free to play battle royale title by Boss Games, which includes former Gears of War mastermind, Cliff ‘CliffyB’ Bleszinski, on the team.

The eighties themed game has received mixed reviews due to its early infancy, but the concept of the multiplayer follows a similar theme to the likes of H1Z1, PUBG and Fortnite. Players jump out of a plane, loot and then proceed to kill everyone left as the map shrinks over time. It’s all fairly simple stuff.

As part of a Radical Heights tournament featuring a number of high profile streamers, commentators flicked between the broadcasts of the personalities playing.

Unfortunately for Radical Heights, and some degree Summit1G, when they flicked to his screen to watch him die, he was less than complimentary about the title and moaned he had to play it for three more hours.

Thankfully the casters appeared to laugh it off, but we’re not sure we’ll see Summit back for the next competition.

Small Warzone streamer gets 3 million Twitch followers overnight

A Warzone streamer has been thrust into the top 30 of most followed Twitch streamers after receiving a huge, and unusual, boost in one go. 

Building up a following and community on Twitch can, obviously, be a slog if you’re starting from scratch. Streamers can stream for weeks and months on end without even having their talents recognized and blow up in popularity like others. 

Some others can take shortcuts, be it because they have a following on another platform, or because they decide to inflate it with fake accounts. 

This has happened before, with casino accounts smashing records in a bid to advertise their platform, while smaller streamers have been hit with huge boosts in an attempt to troll them for one reason or another.

NeonSniperPanda has become the fastest growing streamer for October.

Warzone streamer NeonSniperPanda has become the newest content creator to be struck by these boosts, as his channel has rocketed into the top 30 of most-followed Twitch streamers. 

The streamer, who had previously built up a modest following of nearly 10,500, received the unusual boost in early October, jumping up to over 3.3 million followers. 

As previously mentioned, this figure puts him up there with some of Twitch’s biggest names like Fortnite World Cup champion Bugha and Spanish content creator Ibai, though, NeonSniperPanda hasn’t inflated the figures himself.

NeonSniperPanda jumped up over 3.3 million followers on Twitch.

The Warzone streamer has called on Twitch a number of times to help him out, noting that he’d been botted out of the blue and given the ridiculous amount of followers.

“Yo quick reminder, I was follow botted 3.3 million and there’s no way to delete them @TwitchSupport @Twitch can you help me out bro bro,” he tweeted. 

Previously, the aileybeanssa channel had been hit with a similar botting, as they rose up to have over 4.64 million Twitch followers in September. However, those figures have since been removed. 

Given that Twitch has been able to scrub channels of botted followers, they should be able to do the same for NeonSniperPanda, but it remains to be seen as and when they might do so.
