Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar is becoming well known for taking his already entertaining many other streamers have jumped on board with the game, but the long-time Twitch streamer remains at the top when it comes to the pirate adventure title.

During his January 27 stream of the game, Lazar encountered a Skeleton Ship – a ship full of AI Skeleton enemies that provides a difficult battle for even the best pirate squads in the game. However, the ship was no match for 1g and his impressive accuracy.

With his chat egging him on to battle the ship, Summit lined up his cannon, hopped inside and fired himself in the direction of the Skeleton Ship via a lofty trip through the skies. His ridiculous accuracy not only landed him on the ship but in the Crow’s Nest – a tiny piece of the vessel.

The ship vanished into thin air due to Summit landing in the Crow’s Nest. Once a player enters the space at the top of the mast, the game recognizes the Skeleton Ship as defeated and despawns – even if you haven’t been able to claim any kills or the valuable loot on board.

Luckily for Summit, as the ship despawned, the loot simply dropped off the vessel and into the ocean, waiting to be claimed. 

The streamer may have been able to turn those chests into sweet, sweet gold coins in-game, they don’t help with his quest to conquer Twitch. The long-time streamer recently joked about running his own ads promoting his channel, but only on one rival’s stream – Dr DisRespect’s.

Twitch streamer banned after being denied partnership over age

Twitch streamer AverageHarry has been permanently banned after his partnership application was denied, and they discovered he allegedly signed up while under the age of 13.

AverageHarry has been through a bit of a roller-coaster ride lately. It started back in October 2020 when a video of him getting mocked by strangers and crying on stream went viral.

Since then, his popularity skyrocketed, and he applied to become a Twitch partnered streamer. However, the application was denied in January 2021 after discovering he made the account when he was less than 13 years old, which didn’t align with his account details.

But the drama doesn’t end there. Twitch also said he could lose access to his account because of the restriction. Now, it appears they have doubled down on that claim and made it happen.

AverageHarry went viral after some strangers laughed at him in public while he was streaming.

“I have just been permabanned on Twitch,” said AverageHarry. “For anyone wondering, this is why. He shared a previous tweet, which included a screenshot of the email he received when they denied his application.

“You’ve listed your age as 15, although this doesn’t appear to align with your account details,” said Twitch. “Please get in touch with Twitch support in order to see whether you can update your birthday to be accurate. Otherwise, you may need to make a new account with correct details.”

However, AverageHarry hasn’t given up yet. “I’ll have a video out tomorrow talking about it all,” he said. “I am allowed to make another account, but I have just lost nearly 90k followers.”

He might try and have the ban overturned, which could happen if enough people rally behind him. And it seems like they are, with many people sharing their support on social media. “He genuinely seemed like a good kid,” wrote one user. “Hope he makes a new account and stuff.”

“That Twitch account was made by his parents and given to him by his parents after he was 13 and provided proof for that,” wrote another. “But [he] still got his account removed. [I] hope the best for him.”

In the end, though, Twitch is treating it as a serious matter and won’t want to set a precedent. So, it will be interesting to see what happens and whether their decision is final.
