Summit1g bamboozles Sea of Thieves crew with insane ship heist

Jaryd ‘Sea of Thieves, and while Athena chests are usually on the menu, his fans couldn’t believe how easy it was for him to take another crew’s ship in plain sight. 

The popular Twitch streamer returned to the game on July 23 following the release of the Black Powder Stashes update just six days previous, but it didn’t take him long to bamboozle yet another crew of wannabe pirates on the open seas. 

While summit might have made a particular spot on Galleons his hiding home in recent months, chilling right under players’ noses inside the captain’s quarters, his new spot on the Sloop might be the best yet. 

RareSummit1g managed to swap his Brigantine (left) for a much quicker Sloop (right) in Sea of Thieves.

Placing his character right where the enemy team would never dare to look, as it was seemingly so obvious, the streamer sat right next to the wheel that controls the anchor.

Clearly aware of summit’s presence, though, one of the two young players grabbed hold of the captain’s chest that was on board. “Our captain’s chest, are you holding it? They’re worth a lot” a voice said, which made summit burst into laughter. 

The player had previously described it as “trash” in a bid to sway summit away from taking it. It’s actually worth between 500-1200 pieces of gold, and those familiar with the game will know that’s actually not an awful lot, particularly when you compare it to the Athena Chests that the streamer usually nabs. 

On countless occasions it looked as if he had been spotted, but even the chat were stunned to see that he was still under the radar, with one even saying that the two youngsters on board were paid actors for the stream. However, summit was just as shocked as everybody else. 

Once they found him, though, he soon switched into his hilarious pirate voice and sneakily made it seem as if he was there to steal their prized captain’s chest. 

“Yeah but in this day and age the seas are very dry. There’s not a lot of chests out there,” summit said. “We’re just going to need you to transfer that captain’s chest to our boat.”

With the pair being so occupied on protecting it, summit and his teammate managed to shepherd them onto their ruined Brigantine and sailed away on a new ship in the funniest way possible. “Right, you guys take the Brig. We’re taking this sloop,” his teammate added, before they steered off into the distance in Sea of Thieves. 

The youngsters might have just lost their ship, but were still worried that they had been left stranded on a brig full of gun powder barrels that could be exploded. 

Luckily for them, summit didn’t go that far. The new Sloop was enough on this occasion. 


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.
