Seasoned veterans of the pirate game will know that it’s not often that the game is host to big competitive events of this kind, which will leave many people wondering about some of the basics – when it will take place, where they can watch it, and perhaps most importantly, how will it work? 

Well, if you’re one of those people, we have all of the answers to those questions. Let’s take a look at everything you need to know. 

RAREThere’s going to be some big Sea of Thieves clashes ahead with Twitch Rivals.

Just like many other Twitch Rivals tournaments, this one will be streamed live on the official Twitch Rivals channel on Twitch, or alternatively on the Sea of Thieves channel. The choice is yours. 

There’s also a possibility that the streamers involved will also broadcast the event on their own channels, too. The streams below will go live at the start times mentioned earlier.

How will it work? 

For those wondering just how this Twitch Rivals tournament is going to work, the layout is actually fairly simple. As mentioned earlier, it will be played out in the Arena mode and there will be four “distinct” contests to be played out. 

In terms of how winners will be decided, though, the description on the Sea of Thieves website breaks it down for fans to understand. 

It states: “Points will be awarded to participating crews based on their finishing position in each competition. The $100,000 prize pool will be split over the four distinct competitions, with the winners of each walking away with a cut of the cash.”

Summit1g defends actions on Sea of Thieves after being labeled “toxic”

Popular Twitch streamer Jaryd ‘Summit1G’ Lazar has hit back at a report and claims that he was toxic on Sea of Thieves after breaking up servers where players wouldn’t interact in PvP. 

For the most part, playing Sea of Thieves can be a fun and enjoyable experience. You hop aboard a ship with a friend or two and sail the seas in hopes of completing quests picking up loot that you can sell on.

However, there are plenty of players who try to ruin that – typically through bombarding your ships with constant attacks. As a streamer, Summit has dealt with his fair share of this too, but he’s been able to fight back. 

Previously, he’s put people on blast on Twitter for not playing the game the right way, and while he hasn’t played Sea of Thieves for a while, he’s come under fire for his previous behavior. 

Microsoft StudiosSome players have big issues with the Sea of Thieves community.

Summit’s supposed “toxic” behavior was highlighted in a recent article after streamers quit the game due to harassment from other players. As he started up his October 4 stream, the leader of the 1G squad fired back – tearing into how some players aim to keep servers to themselves in a bid to farm coins. 

“Motherf**ker, you don’t talk about how they get those servers going in the first place – on Discord, through harassment themselves. They will stomp a ship out until they leave the game and get on their ship, you feel me? They don’t talk about all that stuff though,” he said, addressing the article. 

He turned his attention to the players who try to ruin these servers, adding: “Then, they sit on their servers where it’s supposed to be a give and take experience, pirates that take, and pirates that find, and it’s a big circle of we need each other but they sit in their circlejerk farms avoiding all aspects of fear.”

Summit added that playing like that is “not how the game should be played” so after those players took things to Discord in a bit to communicate and organize, he and his pals used “streamer benefits” to find out about them, as well ultimately infiltrating the servers.

He added that he’d never verbally abuse anyone in a racist or sexist way, but just trash-talked if someone else started on him.“We’d only talk s**t if they talk s**t, we’d only give it if they gave it,” Summit continued.  

“And if they’re giving it, they’d take it. They’re fine, they’re big boys, but what we’re talking about here is ridiculous. So, I just don’t understand why it’s a bad thing for one side to do it but not a bad thing for another side to do it.”

Plenty of his fans and Sea of Thieves players backed Summit’s cause to frustrate the players who keep servers to themselves in a bid to coin farm.

The game has undergone plenty of changes in recent months, but it’s unknown if he’ll return to it on a full-time basis as he once did.
