Twitch streamer goes AFK at the worst possible time in Sea of Thieves

Twitch streamer Quantifiable picked the absolute worst possible time to go AFK while playing Sea of Thieves as her ship came under attack from the Kraken, leaving her crewmate screaming for his life.

When Rare revealed Sea of Thieves back in 2015, the open-world cartoon pirate game was received with much fanfare as players looked to capitalize on the multiplayer title with some entertaining gameplay.

Despite having a few bumps along the way, including a pretty rocky launch, the game has hit a patch of smooth sailing as content updates and stable servers have got players hopping aboard a ship and searching for fortunes on the high seas. However, one thing that may never change is its ability to create absolute hilarious highlights – especially when you take your eye off the ball.

Microsoft StudiosSea of Thieves is all about being a pirate and seeking out fortune, but there are plenty of bumps along the way.

During her January 12 stream, Quantifiable, a growing broadcaster, had been playing the multiplayer pirating title when she needed to jump away for a moment – leaving her crewmate all alone on their Sloop ship.

However, as quickly as she hopped away, her ship came under attack from the beastly Kraken and a computer-controlled Skeleton ship. “Um, we just stopped. Kraken maybe? Quant! Quant,” her teammate called out in a panic. 

The shouting seemed to work, however, as the streamer quickly replied that she had to go AFK, yet, not even she could believe what had happened. “I literally went AFK for a minute and this is what happens, are you f**king kidding me,” Quantifiable said, turning to look at the Kraken that had become wrapped around her sloop.

As anyone who has played Sea of Thieves well knows, you can fight off the Kraken, but it’s a difficult task if you’re running with a Sloop that only has two cannons and you’re also taking fire from skeletons.

That meant that the streamer was ultimately confined to the Ship of the Damned, needing a respawn to get her back in the game. Maybe next time though, the game will be a little more lenient with its timing and let her return from a mini timeout.

Pokimane denies new Fedmyster claims, says he sent “admission of guilt”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has hit back at claims made by former OfflineTV streamer Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan in a leaked exposé document, and revealed the disgraced Twitch star sent her what she believes is an “admission of guilt.”

Earlier this year, the OfflineTV house was rocked by accusations of harassment and misconduct leveled at former editor-turned-personality Fedmyster.

Several members of the Twitch content group, including Lilypichu and Yvonne, detailed how Gaytan had “came to [their] room, drunk” and “massaged [their] feet and thighs.” Yvonne also admitted he had “crawled in bed” with her, kissed her cheek, and put his hand up her shirt.

These accusations were compounded when Pokimane claimed Fed had been a “big reason” why she moved out of the house. Fedmyster was subsequently expelled from the OfflineTV house, and removed from the company.

After months of silence from the Twitch streamer, a document leaked online on Nov. 24, which mainly detailed Fed’s relationship with Pokimane. In the unreleased exposé titled “My Truth”, which Dexerto has read copies of, Gaytan, 25, accused Pokimane of “twisting the truth” about their relationship.

Pokimane has now hit back, speaking about the leaked document in a short Twitch stream on Wednesday. In her response, she suggests Fedmyster sent her an “admission of guilt” in regards to his “manipulative” actions.

Fedmyster’s leaked doc, “My Truth,” mainly revolves around his relationship with Pokimane.

Fedmyster allegedly sent Pokimane “admission of guilt”

Anys, who admitted she’s already seen several versions of the Fedmyster document, doubled down on her previous June 29 claims. According to the Twitch star, Fed’s claim to a potential hookup, Steve, that they were “a thing” was the best example of his manipulation.

“I want to make it clear that, to me, this incident [with Steve] was clearly a mess-up on Fed’s part. I confronted Fed, he apologized… he admitted fault,” she said.

Pokimane revealed she messaged Fedmyster ahead of her ‘tell-all’ stream in June, asking if there was anything she “should maybe leave out.” When Gaytan requested she skip over the incident with Steve at the party, however, she refused.

“He said ‘if you can… leave out the Steve stuff, it’s something I wouldn’t like mentioned.’ I couldn’t leave that out. He asked me not to mention it, and I think that’s an admission of guilt, then later he says ‘that’s not how it went down’.”

Pokimane says Fed’s claims ‘overshadow’ real issue

The problem, she continued, is that Fed has focused on her being a “villain” and leading him on in the leaked document. This focus, which she believes “blows everything out of proportion,” is being used to overshadow the actual OfflineTV accusations.

“Essentially we had trouble being close but managing our friendship, knowing he wanted more, but I always felt I was upfront about it… it really bothers me that in this document he tried to make me out as the bad guy,” Pokimane said.

“Obviously we weren’t on the same page. I hope you guys can see this from my perspective… I didn’t see a future between the two of us. I thought I was always honest. Looking back, I should have been more aware of how I acted around him, but hindsight is 20/20!

“To me, in all honesty, all of this is just not important. It’s regular 20-year-old relationship bullsh*t. What I shared about the situation is my honest truth, and it’s totally irrelevant to the actual incidents that triggered all of this.”

Fedmyster says he “stands by document”

Fedmyster has addressed the leaked document too; according to the disgraced Twitch star, he had no plans to release the exposé, because it felt like “airing dirty laundry.”

“[Poki and I] came to agree that keeping things private and making no further statements publicly was what was best for us…We wanted to heal and prevent any further harm to the people involved,” he explained in a short Twitter post.

“On the topic of whether I tried to manipulate our friends to hate her, I still fully stand behind what my document reads but I want to emphasize that it wasn’t my intention to shine Poki in a bad light… I am deeply sorry, and wish I wasn’t so naive and insensitive.”

Fedmyster also said he “still believes [he] was mischaracterized,” but added “after talking to Poki I came to understand her perspective. My outlook on the situation as a whole now comes from a better place of understanding.”

Hours after finishing her stream, Anys took to her second Twitter account, where she said she was “looking forward to moving on” from the whole situation.

“Sorry, td was tough, it’s hard for me to reply to v private things without making the situation messier + I was not in a good headspace,” she wrote. “ty to those that were understanding. looking forward to moving on.”

Yvonne and Lilypichu, who were the first to level harassment allegations against Fedmyster, have not yet publicly addressed the leaked document.
