One unfortunate Twitch streamer ‘DurranSD’ was quickly shut down during his latest Terraria speedrun attempt in quite hilarious fashion.

Speedrunning through games has become quite popular among hardcore players who look to complete entire titles or levels in the fastest times possible.

In many cases, those players will have to perform flawlessly to break the fastest times and often look for shortcuts or glitches that can help them shave off a second or two in order to claim the bragging rights.

TerrariaSpeedrunners on Terraria often look for new ways to break the existing records.

Twitch streamer DurranSD, who frequently attempts to break records on Terraria’s levels, was left stunned after one of his latest attempts at beating a course was cut short in the most unusual way.

While attempting speedruns through some of the sandbox game’s custom worlds, one of his attempts was over before it even began as he spawned into the world with a message letting him know he died.

Not even a second had gone by on his timer, leaving the streamer and many of his viewers scratching their heads as to what happened, simply yelling, “What?!” in disbelief before he eventually respawned.

Despite his unfortunate attempt, DurranSD managed to see the funny side in it, later laughing about his failed attempt while trying to understand what caused his death in-game.

“Why is this game such a mess, well that’s a first,” he expressed before laughing to himself. “How did I die, what happened?”

After watching the clip back, many suggested that his death could have been caused by him spawning inside a dirt block, however, it is still unclear what caused the bizarre death.

YouTube star PewDiePie has also been playing Terraria recently and has even started a new series on his YouTube channel for it, although it will be unlikely he will be attempting any speedruns after admitting he had never played the game previously.

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.
