Jaryd ‘Sea of Thieves, but he was completely taken back after hearing racial slurs being shouted from another ship. 

The popular variety streamer, who recently smashed the four million mark in followers on Twitch, couldn’t believe what he was hearing during a broadcast on November 6. 

After planning to steal a boat load of loot from another squad, he placed himself in his favorite hiding spot inside the captain’s quarters, sneaking just behind the chair.

RareSummit1g has destroyed many Sea of Thieves crews in the past.

Just moments later, when one player asked if the others had microphones to speak with, a number of racial slurs were faintly heard in the background of summit’s stream. During this time, he was trying to fix an audio problem of his own in order to respond to their trash talking, but things went too far. 

The streamer noticed right away and did the best thing by muting the microphone, preventing his viewers from listening to what was being said. 

“Chat… OK, we’re going to stop you guys listen for a second here,” he said, shocked. “Those guys are being super racist right now.”

It was clear that the plan was always to steal the loot that they had on board, but there was no chance any of the crew was leaving that Galleon alive. 

He waited right the way through the darkness of the night until the sun came back out, before one of the enemies found him – near the 11 minute mark in the video. “Is that summit1g?” one guy asked, but by that time his shotgun was already out and he was ready to pounce.

As one of their Sea of Thieves teammates were trapped in the brig, it was only a matter of time before they were taken out as well as the rest of the team. To really put the exclamation point on this devastating attack, he went one better and sunk their ship as well. 

Given what was said earlier in the stream, everybody involved – summit and his viewers alike – would probably agree that justice was served. Racial slurs are no joke and should not be tolerated by anybody.

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.
