Jaryd ‘summit1g’ Lazar is a master when it comes to the dark arts of Sea of Thieves, but after being struck down he made it his mission to destroy another team and steal their loot. 

The popular variety streamer has taken his hilarious stealing skills to the world of Grand Theft Auto RP and other games in the past, but his heists in Rare’s pirate game are unrivaled. 

After hiding in Sloops, Brigantines, Galleons, and even rowing boats in the past, he’s built up a reputation of being one of the hardest players to stop across the high seas.

However, his crafty tactics looked to have hugely backfired in a broadcast on November 10 after he was caught red-handed.

Summit1g couldn’t help himself once he saw the crew had so much loot on board!e

The former CS:GO player was based on another team’s ship, just waiting for his moment. Once the crew dropped their guard, just like he has done in the past, he was going to pounce. 

It never quite worked out like that, though, after being spotted on the deck. From there, he was chased around the boat by the team before he managed to sneak in between some of their chests – the last place they would expect him to be. 

He was forced to move location soon after, though, as a nearby volcano erupted and put him in danger of being hit, so he moved downstairs. It didn’t take long for them to find him again and finally strike him down, sending him off to the Ferry of the Damned. 

Summit and his teammate made it their mission to hunt down the squad from there, setting their sights on some sweet revenge, and it didn’t take long for them to track the enemies down. 

Knowing that they had a boatload of loot to cash in on, they waited at a nearby outpost – the only locations on the map where such treasures can be sold.

Moments later the crew arrived and were struck down by a shower of cannonballs coming from summit’s ship. 

With the team down and their ship clearly in a bad state, sinking to the depths in Sea of Thieves, summit interacted with one of the harpoon cannons and simply plucked their most valuable treasures out of the water.

This might not have been the smoothest heist the streamer has been part of, but it just goes to show that even eliminating summit1g might not be enough to keep him away from your loot. Beware!

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
