With CS:GO stream on July 13, thanks to a classic mechanic in the game.

For those unfamiliar with the title, typing the words “quit smoking” into the console prompts an unexpected result: the command will force the game to close, thanks to the word “quit.”

However, pairing the term “quit” with another phrase, such as “quit smoking,” for instance, may render the command relatively harmless in the eyes of uninitiated players, resulting in some hilarious moments for those who get tricked into closing their own game.

Erobb was one such player, who unfortunately input the command into the console at the behest of his chat – leading to an unexpected reaction from the usually over-the-top streamer.

A classic CS:GO prank baits players into quitting the game by typing “quit smoking” into the console, effectively closing the window by use of the word “quit.”

Despite slamming his desk out of rage upon being eliminated just beforehand, after typing the words “quit smoking” into the console, Erobb simply sat in silence for a few moments, as if stunned that he’d been tricked by the simple prank.

“You guys are so stupid,” he finally said, sitting back in his chair in defeat.

Erobb isn’t the first streamer to have been tricked into quitting their game by their own chat, either: massively popular makeup mogul James Charles was similarly baited closing his game window, after his chat begged him to press the Alt + F4 keys simultaneously.

While his first encounter with Twitch trolls saw him end his stream prematurely, this time, Charles took the prank in stride, laughingly shouting, “Okay, f*ck whoever just did that, that is not funny!”

Although Erobb wasn’t amused by the practical joke, the trolling served as a hilarious lesson for the streamer, who isn’t likely to fall for another “quit” phrase in the near future.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
