Summit1g’s cat sabotages Twitch stream by turning off his PC

Jaryd ‘summit1g‘ Lazar is just one of many high profile Twitch streamers familiarising their viewers Escape from Tarkov, but on January 9 something happened that he and his fans didn’t see coming. 

The popular variety streamer has been responsible for some of the biggest viewing trends on Twitch for the last year, generating interest in all sorts of different games such as Sea of Thieves, GTA RP, and more. Lately, though, he’s been giving Battlestate Games’ beta a chance.

Summit was running around in the game, talking fans through what he was intending to do, before a very unexpected message appeared on the screen.

Battlestate GamesSummit1g was playing Escape from Tarkov’s beta before the stream ended, out of nowhere.

Summit1g has had his fair share of PC issues in recent times, whether it be something in his setup getting in the way of starting up, mic issues or not being able to upgrade his computer due to a lack of space for a new graphics card. Although, this time the issue was a little less serious.

“No Signal,” it said, but the streamer was still visible for people to see as the broadcast had not ended. With an open mouth, shocked by what had happened, he turned and stared at the camera before breaking into laughter.

At this point, it was still really unclear to his fans as to why things had ended the way they did. Clearly, though, he knew the cause of the problem.

The former CSGO player said: “Can you guys hear me? I knew this was going to happen bro… Enzo hit the power button. He likes sleeping on top of my computer dudes, and this power button is a little easier to hit, it’s on the top, and yeah… This motherf**ker.”

For those who aren’t aware, Enzo is summit’s cat and clearly it seems to have found itself a not so desirable spot to sleep at – ending his game.

Much of his audience watching along also saw the funny side of the PC fail, with the chat exploding into laughter when he revealed what had happened.

While this one was a funny moment shared by both the streamer and fans, it did sound pretty avoidable and as if he was expecting it to happen at some stage. Maybe when he’s playing something more serious, or perhaps involved in a tournament, Enzo might have to find someplace else to get his head down.

Like most popular streamers, Shroud has been getting stuck into the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands grind, but although he’s enjoyed it so far, he said he feels like the game is “less immersive” than it used to be.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has taken the world by storm ever since it launched on November 23. Players have been hopping back into Azeroth to take the reigns of their characters once again.

Popular streamers like Mike ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek have been getting stuck into the grind too. He’s been very open about how much he loves the game and has streamed hours upon hours of World of Warcraft Classic. He even said he was willing to lose viewers to stream it.

Shroud has thoroughly enjoyed playing World of Warcraft for many years now.

However, Shroud isn’t blinded by his love and adoration for the game. He still has some criticism for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands and MMORPGs in general, and he mentioned them in his latest stream.

“I feel like [MMORPG’s] and WoW, in general, have transcended into something completely different,” he said. “In the past, you [played] because you were immersed. You were leveling up your character. You were getting new items. It felt good to be more powerful and do better things.”

“Now I feel like WoW is like play with friends and kill some shit,” he said. “That feeling of immersion and truly having an impact on the world and your character feeling there has kind of nullified.”

“When I played vanilla WoW in 2005, I was 11 years old, and it felt amazing,” he said. “It felt incredible. It felt like I was in my own realm. I was in my own world. Now it doesn’t feel like that. That feeling is gone.

The relevant part of the video starts at 2:00.

It’s a sentiment that others have echoed time and time again. The consensus is that MMORPGs have been streamlined throughout the years.

However, it hasn’t stopped millions of players, including Shroud, from enjoying World of Warcraft: Shadowlands. 

Plus, despite his criticism, he thinks now is the “best time” for new players to start playing the game because the new leveling process is “really cool.”
