Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar experienced a scary moment while streaming on May 18, after a boy playing with a football accidentally broke one of his windows.

Summit has long been one of the biggest streamers on Twitch, currently sitting as the 5th most followed channel on the streaming platform. He has recently experienced another surge in popularity through a return to Grand Theft Auto V, regularly doing role-play streams, while maintaining a high standard of gameplay on countless other games.

While streaming on May 18, viewers were shocked when, seemingly out of nowhere, a loud smash was audible, and summit quickly removed his headset and went to investigate.

RockstarSummit was playing GTA V for thousands of viewers when the incident happened.

After the smash, summit disappeared for a considerable amount of time, leaving many members of Twitch chat speculating what had happened.

Suggestions varied from burglary to ‘swatting’ – the act of pretending there is a police emergency at a streamer’s home so they are raided by a SWAT team live.

Once summit returned though, he was quick to clear up the situation. “Some kid threw a football and broke my window,” he explained. “He like, came over with his dad, ya-da-ya-da-ya-da. And I told him it was okay.”

Viewers were impressed with how calmly summit responded to the situation, particularly given the fact many of his Twitch chat were quick to assume the worst.

Once the situation was resolved, summit returned to entertaining his viewers and streamed for another 9 hours, showing he wasn’t too phased by the incident, and wasn’t too angry about the smashed window.

YouTuber blasts “predatory” Genshin Impact after spending $7,000

A YouTuber who spent thousands on Genshin Impact has gone viral after he blasted the game’s gacha system and decided to go exclusively free to play.

Mtashed, who has made plenty of videos about the Chinese action RPG, will no longer be using the account he spent over $7,000 on because he feels the title is “crooked.”

“My main account will now be my secondary account and I don’t want to play it anymore,” he explained in a video uploaded on October 26. “On top of this, any of the videos where I did Wishes and I was showing off any of the Wishes that I got, in the next 24 hours, I’m going to be taking those down and unlisting them.”

According to Mtashed, he is doing this because he refuses to promote the game’s gacha system – which is how free-to-play games end up making money.

Mtashed won’t be spending any more money on Genshin Impact.

“Michael, why the hell would you spend $7,200 on a damn game and then not use it?” he asked from the perspective of the audience. As it turns out, a big factor is people claiming that he has a gambling addiction.

“If any sane person was spending this kind of money on a game… I would honestly say, unless you have an immense amount of disposable income, to look at yourself in the mirror and potentially get help,” he explained. “I am sorry if I ever baited you into Wishing yourself. I feel guilty about that. I have had a tough time sleeping.”

As the video continued, Mtashed got teary-eyed and claimed he even regretted covering the game. “I’m a content creator and I can write this off as a business expense,” he revealed. “My tips video has made $7,300 and paid for every Wish I ever made on this account. And I know that other people can’t do that.”

“I think this system is very predatory,” he added after apologizing to those he may have baited into spending money. “I think this system is gambling. I can’t believe that this exists in a game. And I refuse to promote it. I can’t do it and I’m so sorry that I did.”

That all said, there are still a couple of videos that the YouTuber will still be making on his now-secondary account, but is going free-to-play after that.

Genshin Impact has been reviewed well by critics.

So far, the streamer believes he can make his F2P account “godly” and catch up to his other account in no time despite refusing to put any money in.

Hopefully, the transition can keep others from getting addicted to the game and can shine some light on a very controversial system.
