Jaryd ‘Summit1g‘ Lazar suffered another unfortunate mishap involving a grenade he had thrown while playing Escape From Tarkov on Sunday, January 12, leaving the streamer so shocked that he sprinted away from his computer.

Summit1g is one of the most popular streamers in the world, with over four million followers on Twitch and thousands tuning into his broadcasts daily. Still, he is perhaps best known for his legendary error at the DreamHack Austin CS:GO event in 2016, when he died to his own Molotov and cost his team the game.

Since then, the ‘1g curse’ has followed the 32-year-old from game to game, and Summit once again found himself on the wrong side of his own grenade while playing punishing first-person shooter Escape From Tarkov.

DreamhackSummit1g’s Molotov fail is one of gaming’s most iconic moments.

Tarkov is a notoriously difficult game, and punishes any small mistake a player makes as they attempt to loot an area, and then escape back to their extraction point without being eliminated from the game. With teammate Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek already out of the match, Summit1g found the body of another steamer in Buhbye, kneeling down to loot his body before spotting an enemy just above him.

After watching him through his scopes and firing off a shot, the streamer fell off a ledge to the ground below. With his opponent enjoying the height advantage, the streamer ran forward and threw a grenade high into the air, expecting it to drop onto the platform his enemy was on and wipe them out.

In classic Summit1g fashion though, his own grenade would be the cause of his downfall, as it completely missed its target destination, instead landing behind him and blowing him to pieces, causing him to lose all his loot and get sent back to the main menu. Stunned, the streamer jumped out of his chair, seemingly confused as to how he should react, before running away from his setup entirely.

Summit1g was of the earliest adopters of Escape From Tarkov, jumping on the game throughout 2019 and singing its praises. Since then, the tactical FPS has become a fan-favorite on Twitch, and many streamers have been grinding the game in early 2020, hooked by the steep learning curve, but rewarding gameplay.
For the streamer though, his time spent on the game certainly hasn’t helped his throwing skills, and even four years on from the Molotov incident, it seems like he still doesn’t quite understand how grenades work in games just yet.

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
