Sea of Thieves, but he went one better during a broadcast on October 23 by drafting in Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel to help him out – and they made one hell of an impact!

Between both streamers, they have a following of over 5 million on their channels and after coming together for a crossover stream, it’s fair to say that there are not many more effective – and hilarious – crews to hit the waves in the pirate game than these two. 

It wasn’t all plain sailing for them, however, after being caught right in the middle of Kraken attacks, being charged at by Skeleton ships and even aggressive opponents. In fact, even the start of this ship raid didn’t exactly go to plan.

RareSummit1g and xQc had to fend off a lot more than just enemy players in their Sea of Thieves stream.

Summit1g was waiting in the wings for a signal from his teammates, as he latched onto the side of an enemy ship, holding onto a ladder. 

Soon after, he boarded the vessel and eliminated a few players in quick succession, knocking some of them into the water, before what he claimed to be an item glitch cost him his first life. It wouldn’t let him eat his mango to restore health.

Once he came back from the Ferry of the Damned, the streamer was all fired up and – crucially – had reinforcements. The one man band approach didn’t work the first time around, but once everybody was working in sync, things started to pick up. 

The battle went back and forth for a few moments, with both teams trying to board the other’s ships by firing over towards them in cannons. During that time, xQc announced that their ship was struck by a Megalodon bite, but summit managed to finally get aboard the enemy Brigantine and from there it was pure domination. 

He lowered their anchor right away, which is something that takes a while to pull back up, and then killed three of the pirates right off the bat. 

Using his shotgun, summit1g fended a few of them off before having a super tight call after falling into the water. 

Somehow, he managed to evade some shots from the other players, before springing back out of the sea and helping them finish off the rest of the team.

At this stage, the team’s ship was a sitting duck just waiting for xQc to come along and light it up, which is exactly what they did – smashing cannonballs into the ship at all angles until it sank to the depths. 

They might have had a rocky start to life as Sea of Thieves teammates, having to wait a long time to get close to their opponents, but this was a total wipeout in the end.

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.
