Minecraft streamer ‘WizardYensid’ found himself in an intense situation while playing the popular sandbox’s hardcore mode which resulted in the Twitch personality taking his rage out on his setup.

WizardYensid is known for his awful microphone, which leaves listeners with sore ears after they are bombarded with a blown out wall of sound every time he talks or when it picks up noise from anything and everything. 


During his September 18 stream, viewers were met with a nuclear soundblast when the Twitch streamer raged out after a failure in Minecraft’s hardcore mode, and his shoddy mic caught it all in its compressed glory.

The streamer found himself in a tricky situation when he was swarmed by a zombie horde at night, which had managed to get inside his house and surround it. As he escaped to the outside, his mouth hung open during the intense situation, when he ran directly into a zombie who ended up killing him.


Almost immediately, the Minecraft streamer slammed his deck in rage, and angrily knocked his camera over. His poor quality microphone picked up the pain-inducing sound, as he could be heard screaming in the background. 

While most of the chat seemed to be amused by his outburst, some were giving him a hard time, with one person telling him to kill himself. Understandably, WizardYensid got upset, and gave the person a time out, before continuing to scream about his in game death.

“Sad and pathetic!” he said in reply to user who insulted him. “Shut the fuck up and you go kill yourself!” he repeated, before angrily mocking his chat as he went to start a new game. 


The Twitch streamer then took a shot at some in his chat again, and said “You are all fucking stupid!” before he screamed in pure rage.

Why was he so mad?

Minecraft has five modes that include survival, creative, adventure, hardcore, and spectator. In the game’s hardcore mode, death are permanent and there is no respawning which means that even after hours of building and obtaining materials, players lose everything.

This gives the sandbox high stakes, as any random encounter suddenly becomes a fight for survival out of fear of losing all the progress that you’ve made up to the point. 


And WizardYensid learned this the hard way, as he lost everything after being killed by the zombie horde which sent him into a fit of rage.

While the ear splitting noise can be too much for some, clearly it appeals to many as the streamer currently has over 69,000 followers on Twitch as of the time of this article.   


YouTuber Shiey hits out after strike against illegal train surfing video

YouTuber Shiey has hit out at YouTube after the platform decided to shut down his channel, for seemingly no obvious reason.

Shiey is a popular YouTuber with more than 1.3 million subscribers and has built up his following from posting hairraising videos of train surfing and dangerous physical feats. Lately, he has been uploading videos for his series in which he train surfs across Europe.


Part 1 and Part 2 of his Europe journey are still live on his YouTube channel, but Shiey recently tweeted that part 3 of the series had been taken down by YouTube because it violates the “harmful and dangerous” policy.

The removal of the video is part of YouTube’s strike system where a user is banned from uploading videos for two weeks if they violate the platform’s policy twice, and the channel is permanently removed after three strikes. Shiey says YouTube is currently preventing him from using his main channel.

Shiey tweeted a screenshot of the warning sent to him by YouTube and posted: “Interesting how they let other channels do the same thing, but not me,” and refuted the decision.

They added: “Btw part 3 was a 30 min video with 5 min of train stuff and 25 min of me walking ’round town with ice cream, camping, and swimming. Sick choice for takedown…”

YouTube does give creators the choice to appeal, which Shiey has done, but he claims that he hasn’t heard anything so far. He said that if he continued to be ignored, he would upload the entire journey as one video.


Shiey has created a back-up channel so viewers can still stay up to date with his content, to get around the strikes, and he is spreading the word in the comments on his main channel. He says he will be uploading every video that gets taken down by YouTube on the back-up.

Train surfing is illegal on most railways globally, not just because it involves skipping the fare, but because it is seriously life-threatening, whether that be from colliding with infrastructure, falling from a height, or getting electrocuted by a power supply.
