Twitch streamer destroys his setup after experiencing massive Quake input lag

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.

Dixie D’Amelio and Noah Beck are one of TikTok’s most popular couples — but fans were distraught after the two seemed to unfollow each other on social media, sparking breakup rumors.

Dixie and Noah have long been an item in the TikTok fandom; after parting ways with Griffin Johnson amid allegations of cheating last year, Dixie began spending quite a lot of time with Noah, leading fans to suspect they were secretly dating.

After quite some time of claiming they were merely “besties,” Noah officially revealed he and Dixie were dating in October 2020, and the two seemed to be going strong all this time — until January.

On January 22, eagle-eyed fans noticed that Dixie had unfollowed Noah on Instagram, sparking rumors that the two lovebirds had called it quits over undisclosed drama.

The situation became even more confusing after Dixie re-followed Noah a short time later, leaving fans completely befuddled and curious as to what prompted the social media distancing.

Luckily, it doesn’t seem to be related to relationship issues, at all; instead, Dixie laughingly explained that she’d had a classic case of salt after losing a game against her boyfriend and decided to unfollow him in an elaborate joke.

“BAHAHAHAHA! I lost in a game and was being a sore loser, but forgot to re-follow him, lol!” Dixie wrote in an Instagram comment responding to fan speculation.

However, it seems that Noah and Dixie did get into a real argument some time beforehand, with Dixie admitting in an unreleased portion of her ‘2 Chix’ podcast on January 21 that she had deleted all her Instagram stories with Noah as a result of their spat.

“Noah and I got into an argument this morning, and I deleted the stories that I had of me and him together and unliked his photo,” she explained. “And all the Doah fan pages freaked out, and were like, ‘What is happening?’ ‘No way!’”
