Jaryd ‘summit1g‘ Lazar has built up quite the reputation for hilarious car crashes in GTA RP but this one might be the best of them all, after his vehicle burst into flames right in the middle of a race. 

The popular Twitch streamer’s character in the NoPixel server has ran riot for quite some time, after completing a number of amazing bank heists and other adventures with other players. 

If there’s one thing that doesn’t change about Charles Johnson, though, it’s his terrible skills at the wheel, but that wasn’t really the reason why this race failed during a live stream on August 26. 

Summit1g / Rockstar GamesSummit1g has had some problems with fire in the past.

Summit kicked off with a hot start in the race, breezing past a number of other drivers to storm in front, but it turns out that taking a pitstop at a gas station was the worst possible move. “OK, real good start for us. Let’s get it brother,” he said. 

As he turned right and slowly approached the station to fill up his vehicle, without even touching any of the gas tankers – at least not visibly – the car was blasted into smithereens by an unlikely explosion. 

As the character flopped up and down on the floor, the former CS:GO player couldn’t believe what had just happened. After all, none of it was really his fault. He simply moved into the gas station looking to fill up the tank and boom!

“Did we hit it?” he said just after his car went up in flames, wondering whether or not he caused the problem. “I didn’t fucking hit it. Ughhhh. What the fuck? Oh my god.”

summit1g, TwitchSummit1g couldn’t help but laugh when his character was flopping around in the flames.

His teammate suggested that it might have been a problem with the gas on the outside, although it’s difficult to say due to how fast the whole thing unfolded. 

While they might not have realized what the problem was here, there’s no doubt that summit will think twice before taking a swift pitstop next time he’s in a race. 

Among Us

Hafu’s Among Us lobby takes action against toxic Twitch chat

In light of recent drama involving xChocoBars and Twitch chat toxicity in Hafu’s Among Us lobbies, the streamers are working together to implement a process aimed at curtailing unsavory viewers.

In one of Rumay ‘Hafu’ Wang’s popular Among Us sessions with a variety of streamers, Luminosity Gaming’s xChocoBars was driven to tears and an early conclusion of her stream by overwhelming toxicity in Twitch chat.

While Hafu and others, like Jeremy ‘DisguisedToast’ Wang, tried to console xChocoBars and let her know that chat was being unfair — the damage had already been done. Viewers were aggressively berating ChocoBars for failing to identify the impostor and that pushed her to find a substitute for her in the game and end her stream early, forgoing involvement in Rachel ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter’s session later in the day.

In the hours since the unfortunate incident, Hafu has worked on creating a process to deal with toxic chatters that will involve moderators from each streamer’s chat joining a collective Discord channel.

As Hafu explains, her Among Us morning lobbies will be accompanied by a communal “mod Discord.” This will allow the streamers, in unison, to levy out punishments to someone who has been overly toxic in any individual chat.

While Hafu denotes the level of toxicity as anyone being a “poopoo head,” it’s clear that this process is designed to ensure that anyone wanting to be toxic will be relegated to uninvolvement in any stream that is part of the lobby.

Overall, the idea is a quality one as it should deter people from being too nasty in chat. If someone is so invested in a streamer’s game of Among Us that they become toxic, they’ll probably dislike being completely banned from the entire lobby’s streams.

As xChocoBars tweeted, she did need to take a break from the internet for a while after dealing with toxicity in the morning stream — but she will be returning for Hafu’s next morning Among Us lobby.

It’s unclear if this anti-toxicity process was in the works before ChocoBars decided to join for the following morning’s stream. Regardless, it should be comforting to know that the lobby is taking action against what has become a growing issue in Among Us streams.
