Summit1g pleas with fans to stop ‘harassing’ other GTA RP streamers

Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar has issued a plea to the more ‘toxic’ members of his community who have been harassing other streamers playing Grand Theft Auto V roleplaying.

What is metagaming?

GTA RP has re-emerged as one of the most popular games to watch on Twitch. Players take on the form of an in-game non-playable character [NPC] and conjure up their own storylines for themselves, based on what’s going on in the city.

It can be a bit difficult to stream as some viewers engage in ‘metagaming’ – where they explain what has happened elsewhere in the city, even though the streamer has not encountered that scenario or the other players involved.

Let’s take a look at the things that Summit1g has taken issue with…

Twitch: SsaabTwitch streamers, like Summit, have flocked to GTA RP in recent weeks.

What did Summit say to his fans?

Summit was addressing a donation from a fan that said members of his community were spamming another streamer’s chat with accusations of stream sniping.

“Come on guys. Listen, dudes, there’s no enemies in this game alright?” Summit said, beginning his plea. “We’re all cool, everything’s fine. Ziggy is like one of the great people on the server. We have really good interactions with them, I like RP’ing with the guy – why have you guys gotta ruin things man? Come on.”

The streamer added: “Stop going to other people’s channels and complaining and shit. It’s all fake – I know you guys don’t want to hear that.”

Summit then issued a further request for fans to stop, admitting that he can’t control the newcomers to his stream who don’t act like his long-time viewers.

However, he also added that he would begin issuing reminders to viewers to stop bothering other streamers during moments of RP – particularly because they can ruin the experience by metagaming across multiple channels.

What consequences could this lead to?

It remains to be seen if Summit implements any harsher punishments for viewers of his own who go and disrupt other players broadcasts.

While he says that banning people from his channel ‘sucks’ and he doesn’t enjoy having banned members, it may just be a much-needed step in a bid to weed out the more disruptive members of the community.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
