Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar has been playing a ton of Escape from Tarkov during his streams throughout 2020, but that may soon come to an end. 

Escape from Tarkov blew up on Twitch at the start of the year, with many streamers enjoying the realistic survival shooter.

Summit1g has been loving the game and it quickly became the main game on his stream often choosing to stream nothing but Tarkov. However, this may all change as he seems to have had enough with it and said during a broadcast that he is strongly considering quitting the game altogether and that he “thinks it’s time to move on from Tarkov.”

Summit quickly fell in love with Tarkov and has been playing it since the start of 2020.

During his usual stream on March 4, Summit had possibly one of his best Tarkov runs yet, eliminating all other PMC’s [Player Main Characters] on the server, meaning he had essentially secured the whole map to loot for himself as no more PMC’s could join.

However, he was struck down by a wave of player-controlled Scavs, who can join the server at any point. This meant that he had lost a ton of loot to some unfortunate spawns of characters that reset every 30 minutes and don’t progress like main characters.

Jaryd was not happy with what happened and hit out at the game. “Would you not be pissed about that? You kill all the guys that got into the game and you get killed by the endless stream of idiots who can queue into the game until it’s over.”

“Sometimes I just want to sit down, min-max, and enjoy the looting, but I can’t do that” he finished, clearly disappointed with the result of the game.

He then added he may not continue playing Tarkov at all, saying “It’s time for GTA, Takrov might be over… I think it’s time to move on from Tarkov.”

This isn’t the first time the streamer has complained about EFT, but this time he went further than before by adding that he may be quitting the game.

Fans will just have to wait and see what happens, although, it is possible we may not see Summit pick up Tarkov for some time, if ever again.
