Summit1g slams notorious GTA roleplayer Lil Loco for controversial playstyle

Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar has laid down the law about one of the most controversial characters in Grand Theft Auto Roleplay – Lil Loco. 

The Lil Loco character, played by Twitch streamer Jayce, had drawn criticism for its lack of roleplaying and continually repeating the same actions over and over – usually, killing people quickly after little RP interaction.

Some players had even hinted at stream sniping in an attempt to get a leg up on his targets. Many players, and viewers, of the NoPixel server have aired their dislike of the character, including Summit.

Twitch: LirikGTA RP has returned to popularity on Twitch as a number of big streamers joined up to the game.

Ranting about the character during his March 21 stream, Summit said: “This motherfucker, Lil Loco, just keeps robbing and robbing and robbing. I was even hearing people complain about his ass in the apartments yesterday.”

“Its like dude, I’m sick of this gang shit,” he added. “Just cause you’re dumbass is wearing yellow doesn’t mean you get to lock down a whole area and have an excuse to rob anybody.”

Jayce responded to the abundance of criticism about his character directly on his stream, explaining that he had received threats and hateful messages because of his playstyle from viewers of the game and that all the hate had gotten to him – clearly upsetting the streamer.

Jayce doesn’t seem to be fazed by any of the drama surrounding his portrayal of Lil Loco, however, and has continued to stream his GTA V RP sessions using the Lil Loco persona. 

While GTA RP continues to be one of the most popular watches on Twitch, viewers regularly tune in to watch clever interactions between players in the server, but there is still room for a typical Grand Theft Auto gang character – as long as it’s played in the correct manner. 

Some fans will have criticized the streamer and others made cases for the character, but clearly, this one got a little out of hand.

Streamer goes viral for calling out “disrespectful” Among Us players

YouTuber and Twitch streamer Julien ‘julien’ Solomita has gone viral for a clip in which he called out Among Us players who are disrespectful towards others in-game.

In the viral clip, which has been viewed over 350,000 times since being uploaded to Twitter on December 4, Julien blasted people who infect his lobbies with negativity or make others feel “unsafe.”

“When I make these lobbies, when I go around and hit up some of my friends, and often times some of my friends’ friends to play Among Us with me, I have one thing in mind: that everyone I’m inviting gets to have fun,” the streamer began his rant.

“Gets to feel welcome. Gets to feel safe. Gets the exact opportunity as everyone else to be listened to. And gets to go home at the end of the night and say that had a good night of gaming,” he continued.

Among Us has become one of the most popular online games.

According to Julien, this mantra should be enforced for new people. “I’ve met more people in the streaming world playing Among Us than I’ve ever met, by far, than any other game,” he explained. “So, when new people are in my lobbies, I try to go extra to out of my way to make those people feel like they’re welcome and they get to have fun.”

Communication can be key in Among Us, so it makes sense that anyone who plays would want to be able to speak freely and not be spoken over. As such, when players aren’t able to get a word in, the experience can be ruined.

This is why the streamer has “zero tolerance” for the “normalization” of disrespecting people in video games.

“Among Us is a game and it’s for fun. It’s not so boys can talk over women. It’s not to make new people in the group feel small or unwelcome. It’s not to win in every game at all costs,” he continued to rant. “It’s a game and it’s for everybody to enjoy.”

He went on to reach out to players who may have been disrespected in online games and hoped that they never experienced that again. “I don’t want anyone here to get the idea that it’s even close to normal for that to be how you feel when you play a video game. That’s not normal. It’s f**king weird, it’s wrong.”

A lot of people have taken Solomita’s message to heart and voiced their agreement in the replies. Hopefully, his words have a lasting effect on players feeling a bit out of touch in online games such as Among Us.
