Twitch streamer suffers worst hardcore Minecraft luck ever

Twitch streamer Wintrycelll managed to fail at hardcore Minecraft in record time – losing the new world before even chopping down a tree.

Despite being released back in 2011, Mojang’s Minecraft has been back in demand with YouTubers and Twitch streamers in recent months. Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg managed to hit the 100 million subscribers mark after a big boost from his series in the sandbox title.

While the game is meant to be an enjoyable way to kill a few hours, content creators have been diving into the hardcore side of things – which means once you die, the save is finished, no matter how you fall.

We’ve seen players who’ve gotten so close to ‘the end’ and been hit by an unfortunate slice of luck, but others like Wintrycelll, they’ve not even managed to get that close.

MojangGamers have been diving into Minecraft saves for almost a decade.

During her November 19 broadcast, the variety streamer had been playing the game on creative mode before switching away to hardcore.

Yet, as she started up the new save, Wintrycelll was barely able to take in her surroundings when she took a step forward that proved to be disastrous. The streamer stepped right into a cavern and went tumbling down towards the stone floor.

With the fall damage killing her instantly, and ending the save within seconds of starting, Wintrycelll gasped before laughing at the bad luck and heading back to the main menu. 

Now, unless you use a seed, these Minecraft worlds are randomly generated so it could have been literally anyone who fell to the streamer’s cruel, cruel fate.

Thankfully, though, the disastrous start didn’t seem to put Wintrycelll off playing the sandbox title as she returned back to her creative save after taking a few minutes to get herself situated after the fall. 

It remains to be seen if she’ll venture back into the world of hardcore Minecraft, though, as it obviously wasn’t the ideal introduction.

Sykkuno opened up about leaving the OfflineTV house and revealed he plans to move back in with family, but will stick around the Los Angeles area.

Sykkuno has only been a confirmed member of the OfflineTV house since August, but he’s already exploded in popularity. He deserves all the credit, though, since his content and input in collaborated streams has been thoroughly enjoyable.

It’s been a blast having him on board. However, Sykkuno ultimately decided not to stick around, and in one of his latest streams, he shared some details on what he’s planning to do next.

Sykkuno has been streaming for a while, but he’s become immensely more popular in recent weeks.

“As most of you guys probably know, [I’m] moving soon,” he said. “So, I’m probably not going to be streaming for a couple of days after today obviously because there’s a lot of moving stuff going on.”

Initially, Sykkuno is planning to move back in with his family, but then he’d evaluate his options and decide what to do next. “I’m probably moving home for a bit, and then we’ll figure it out after that,” he said.

Sykkuno also said he would “probably” stay in Los Angeles in the long run but isn’t planning to buy a house. “That’s a little too expensive for me,” he said. “I don’t think that’s quite happening.”

Sykkuno has been streaming Among Us on Twitch along with other popular streamers.

He described the move as a “bit of a hassle” but seemed excited about the future. He’s also adamant about not wanting to live alone. “I don’t want to live alone… I feel like it’s tough,” he said.

This hilariously opened the door for one fan to try and make an ambitious deal. “Pay for my rent, and I’ll live with you,” wrote the fan.

Sykkuno pondered for a moment and then jokingly pitched a counter-offer. “If you pay for my rent, I’ll there too, I suppose,” he said, laughing. “Thank you for the offer.”

Sykkuno didn’t mention anything else beyond that. However, if his meteoric rise continues to grow, the opportunities will be endless.

It comes after other OfflineTV members Scarra and Toast said that the OffliveTV house could be disbanding shortly.

“We can’t have a house that each of us have wives, husbands, our kids, and our pets living in once place,” Toast said in a recent stream.

It seems like Sykkuno’s fans will have his back no matter what he decides though. They’ve become a large and dedicated community in their own right.
