Summit1g airs his frustration with the current state of Sea of Thieves

Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar is back playing Sea of Thieves after temporarily stepping away from it following the release of Apex Legends – but he still has critical words to say about the swashbuckling adventure game. 

Summit1g voiced frustration with the monotony of the game, arguing that it doesn’t allow players to progress as quickly as it should.

“We need voyages that are fun for people,” he said. “So that there’s loot out there to either be stolen, or to be dug up. Stop this seafarer chest shit. You should be digging up seafarer chests for two fucking days, and then upgrade after that.”

Summit1g, TwitchSummit was playing Sea of Thieves almost exclusively before the release of Apex Legends.

Developers Rare have been criticized before by Summit, when he stated that there were not enough players on the servers to make the game enjoyable and that ghost ships are not a worthwhile addition to the game.

He repeated his dislike of ghost ships, and went on to state that Sea of Thieves’ current in-game rewards for victory are insufficient, and not as satisfying as they should be: “90% of your ship battles should not be just to have a ship battle. It should be because they have stuff.”

In Summit’s opinion, the open-world game, which includes the possibility of conquering other users’ ships, does not do enough to ensure players are given worthwhile prizes for their victories, and this renders success futile.

“The most heart-wrenching thing that can happen in this game,” Lazar said. “Is me dumping on fucking ship after ship after ship, to go into empty captain’s quarters, after empty captain’s quarter, after empty fucking captain’s quarter.”

He completed his rant with a direct message for Rare, declaring that they’re responsible for “the worst thing that can happen” in the game, and making it clear that he wants to see in-game alterations sooner rather than later.


Virtual streamer CodeMiko banned from Twitch for third time

Popular virtual streamer CodeMiko has been banned from Twitch for the third time, leaving some fans asking if this is a permanent ban. 

Over the years, Twitch streamers have come up with different ways to stand out from the crowd instead of just being world-class at certain games. Some have ramped up production in a major way and you can’t really take your eyes off it.

That includes VTubers and virtual streamers too, who use a digital avatar, editing, and even in some cases, a motion capture suit, to replace themselves on-screen and take on a different persona. 

In the last few weeks, Codemiko – a streamer who takes the VTuber concept to a whole new level – has been getting massive numbers on Twitch. However, she’s now been banned, yet again.

The ban came on January 19 after StreamerBans, who tracks all the different bans – temporary or permanent – on Twitch, tweeted that CodeMiko had been suspended by Twitch. 

The reason for the ban, or its length, is unknown but some fans were quick to speculate on the reason. Some suggested that it was because she used the word Simp – which was recently banned by Twitch. 

Others noted that in a previous stream, where she was interviewing fellow streamer PayMoneyWubby, Codemiko was incredibly drunk and could have been banned for that. Twitch does have some strict rules around drinking on stream, especially if you get out of hand and overindulge. 

There’s no way of confirming just why she’s banned, or how long the ban will last unless the streamer reveals it herself. Twitch typically does not comment on individual bans.

The only thing she’s posted regarding the ban was the ‘sadge’ meme.

This would be her third ban, previously being banned twice in September of 2020.

However, a streamer has to be banned three times within a three month period to rack up a permanent ban, so, she’ll probably be back at some point in the near future.
