DayZ fans got their own back on streaming superstar Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar, after he went on a rant about the abundance of trees – specifically Christmas trees – in the game.

Summit has returned to DayZ after a few years away from it, in what started as somewhat of a throwback, but he’s now dived right back in.

But, there was no honeymoon phase this time, and it didn’t take long for Lazar to make his feelings known about the game’s current state. And, his opinions sparked some debate on social media.

On September 6, he tweeted “DayZ needs to remove 50% of their trees and 80% of the Christmas trees.”

There was some controversy around this tweet, mainly because some longtime DayZ players thought it wasn’t right that a part-timer like Summit1g come in and start making demands.

Some were also worried that the developers would take Summit’s feedback onboard more than that of ‘dedicated’ players.

Seeing all the furor about this, some people thought that the developers were playing a trick on him, by dropping Christmas trees in his lobby.

Although it would have been great fun, it looks like this wasn’t the responsibility of the devs after all, but instead some pesky modders playing the joke.

On his stream, he didn’t even notice all the 1G ornaments at first, until he came back from his ten-minute break.

As he sat back down to watch, he was totally confused, at first also believing it must have been the developers playing a trick on him.

He has been streaming DayZ almost exclusively for over a week now, and enjoying the return to his old stomping grounds.

But, he definitely isn’t afraid to share his thoughts on the game’s current state. On September 8, developers Bohemia rolled out update 1.09, adding new content, including the Desert Eagle and Revolver.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
