A Twitch streamer wasn’t too happy with his PC after numerous instances of input lag in Quake made him take out his frustrations on his setup.

The legendary shooter by id Software has remained a competitive battleground for decades because of the pinpoint precision and tight reflexes it demands from players.

In a similar vein, Quake players expect their PCs to hold up when the action gets intense in the old shooter, which might be why ‘alb_ogc’ got fed up with his rig during a match.

id SoftwarePlayers know how punishing Quake can be if your aim isn’t on point.

“Okay guys, you just saw it, I just cannot,” alb_ogc said. “I just cannot handle this shit anymore. It’s like every single day there’s something wrong here. I just cannot enjoy my fucking PC or any game at all since I got this PC. I just cannot anymore, it makes me so fucking depressed.”

The streamer’s voice had a tense calm to it moments before ramping up to his monitor’s destruction by saying: “Just makes me want to pick up this monitor right here and just… throw it away.

A loud bang could be heard as the streamer picked up his monitor and slammed it on his desk, and promptly ended the stream soon after.

Leading up that moment, alb_ogc was able to stay competitive in his last match in Quake Live, though he wasn’t feeling too thrilled about the various issues he was feeling up until that game.

“Life sucks,” alb_ogc said. “I want to kill myself. I want to off myself. That’s the feeling this PC gives me everyday, guys.”

Though his Twitch Chat couldn’t figure what issues he was talking about since the game looked fine, he quickly clarified his position, saying: “Yeah, you don’t notice it cause you’re not sitting behind this setup… you cannot feel input lag while watching a stream.”

If he wasn’t planning on making some upgrades before his initial issues with his PC, it might seem like he’ll definitely need some after this incident.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
