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!

Pokimane responds to transphobia accusations after Discord DMs emerge

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
