Summit1g floored by crazy old man’s trash talking in GTA RP

Many people decide to play off on age-old stereotypes and where Eugene is concerned, a figure that could be likened to Grampa Simpson from The Simpsons in many ways, there was no way that he was going to let a “whippersnapper” like Summit1g take over his turf in Los Santos without a fight. 

Twitch: SsaabYou just don’t know who you’re going to meet next in GTA RP…

Summit and his teammate ‘taco’ were speaking on the phone as he drove his way down Rockford Hills, before an older gentleman speeding around on his bicycle caught his attention – Eugene. As they drove past him, Summit shouted: “Hey Eugene, get out of the fucking road man!” 

He might have thought that it was the last they would see of the character, but even with a push bike as his vehicle, Eugene quickly caught up with the vehicle and confronted Summit on Eastbourne Way – claiming it as his own “turf”. 

Once the two players had settled their differences, and Summit admitted that he wasn’t tracking Eugene for an earlier robbery he was involved in, the conversation took a very different turn as they were about to part ways. 

“You will never understand what it’s like to fight in 39 world wars, you never will!” the player said, before being asked to name at least ten of them. 

Well, if his trash talk wasn’t already on another level, the way he quickly reels off a list of conflicts just seconds later was second to none. Although, we highly doubt that he fought in both the Battle of Hastings and the Clone Wars from the Star Wars prequels…

Not everybody will be a huge fan of the mod, but it certainly does open up the doors to hilarious conversations like this that would never take place in the normal Grand Theft Auto Online mode and some fans just can’t get enough of Summit1g playing it.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
