Twitch streamer Erobb fell to an incredibly embarrassing death in Minecraft just moments after he called his chat out for trying to troll him into the exact same thing – prompting the brilliant clip to go viral.

Despite releasing as an alpha back in 2010, Minecraft has had a resurgence of popularity through the back end of 2019. YouTube king Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg used the sandbox title to lift himself over 100 million subscribers, while a whole host of streamers decided to dabble in at least one save.

In the run-up to the new year, the game has slipped back down out of popularity, with only a handful of big-name streamers keeping up with the game once again. One such broadcaster has been Erobb, even though things haven’t gone things haven’t all gone to plan during recent sessions.

During his December 26 stream, the popular broadcaster hit up the sandbox title for another playthrough – even though his chat tried their very best to disrupt things by giving out a few ‘tips’ and ‘tricks’

One such not so helpful hint centered around him being a sky-high one-by-one tower so he could get a better view of the landscape and figure out what he wanted to do. Being atop the tower, though, one viewer instructed him to hit the W key in order to zoom in. Yet the streamer didn’t bite.

“You almost got me too dude,” he quickly replied, but it came with some impeccable timing. As he said it, Erobb completely missed the bucket of water he had placed down and fell from his high perch to the ground below – instantly dying.

With his world being played under hardcore settings, the death had bigger ramifications for Erobb as it meant it was the end of that specific save.

Of course, you can always make a back-up to get around the consequences of dying in hardcore but wheres the fun in that?
