Twitch streamer, GTA V.

Summit1g has been known for streaming such a large variety of games on Twitch and is one the platform’s longest standing streamers with over 3.7 million followers.

Although it seems that his talents to quickly adapt to games are strong, some fans feel that during his latest GTA roleplay streams that he is not truly immersing himself and taking the ‘role’ as seriously, as some other streamers on Twitch.

Summit1g was one of the first to return to GTA V roleplay streams in the recent wave of Twitch streamers returning to the game and he has contributed heavily to recent activity and viewership around GTA V.

Having been recently criticized by xQc on his streams for his different style of roleplay, summit1g took the time to respond to everyone who watches his streams and explain why his streams are so different to other streams on the roleplay servers.

Summit started by saying that he may not be as good as “RPing” as some of the other streamers and their characters do on Twitch, however he followed up by stating that he did not fell that putting on a voice added much to the experience, “but lets not pretend talking in a stupid voice in a circle is either.”

He finished up the thread by saying that he cant help not following the usual set of RP activities as others because that playing his own way, which involves a lot of racing others and running from cops, is more enjoyable for him. “It’s just so much fun.”

Fans and other roleplay streamers backed summit1g, saying that they he should essentially do whatever he enjoys while playing on the GTA RP servers, and not to worry about what others think.

GTA V content creator, LordKebun, responded to summit1g telling him that his streams wouldn’t be fun if he didn’t mix “random shit” in, and stating that some viewers clearly just love to hate regardless.

Another RP streamer who previously played alongside summit1g on the roleplay servers, RatedEpicz, responded by saying that he felt his roleplay streams were great, jokingly adding, “you’re clearly crashing on purpose because it’s what your character would do”, to which summit replied saying, “Someone finally sees.”

YouTuber, JoblessGarrett indicated that he loved summit1g’s streams even comparing the relationship he had with Summit’s character, “Charles Johnson”, to the Twilight movie series, while listing the roleplay streams as a serious contender.

It doesn’t appear that Summit has any intentions of stopping these roleplay streams soon, as fans will be expecting so much more hilarious interactions during his GTA V sessions.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

xQc has over four million followers on Twitch.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
