Summit1g uses Star Wars force to bamboozle Sea of Thieves pirate

Jaryd ‘summit1g‘ Lazar has already proved himself as one of the craftiest pirates in Sea of Thieves, but it appears that he’s added another string to his bow when it comes to terrorizing other players – the force. 

The force is a metaphysical power used by Jedis and Siths in the Star Wars franchise to move items around and, for some characters, control how others are thinking.

Many that tuned into summit’s December 12 broadcast couldn’t believe what was happening as he used one of his most obvious hiding spots on a Sloop to-date, laying right next to the map in plain sight, while convincing an enemy that he wasn’t there by just using his voice – even though it was very obvious where he was.

RareAn un suspecting Sea of Thieves player was sailing around in a sloop when summit jumped on board.

The Twitch star was constantly jumping in and out of his hiding place to move things around on the boat, but the Sea of Thieves player didn’t appear to respond at all – even when he started to speak to them. It was almost as if they were accepting the changes as natural, rather than something suspicious.

“I’m a master of disguise, you’ll never find me,” summit said, laying down right next to the feet of the pirate as they fixed the side of the ship. Moments later, he finally revealed himself and even then, the other player seemed to be in a trance. Maybe the force was working.

The former CS:GO streamer said: “Alright, it’s time for you to know. I’m here and no, I mean you no harm. You passed the test man. You get to keep your ship now, you know.”

Now, there’s a pretty good chance that summit doesn’t actually know the ways of the force, in fact we’re pretty certain – despite all of his practice in Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

We can only guess that the other pirate was just enjoying the Obi-Wan Kenobi-esque impression and wanted to go along with it all, almost as if it was Jedi training.

Summit then revealed all of the things he had been doing on the ship before revealing himself, such as putting a banana on the stove, moving around loot and even drawing a wiener on the map. Clearly, these are all things a pirate should know are happening if they don’t want to have their most prized possessions snatched by others anyway.

“Ok, so you’re not yet done learning the ways of the force. You must continue yourself. Good luck my padawan. If you need me, put a winner on the map!” he said, before blasting himself away from the ship and into the water to end the hilarious segment.

It’s impossible to think what the other player was feeling when their Jedi master left but one thing is clear… Much to learn, they still have.


Virtual streamer CodeMiko banned from Twitch for third time

Popular virtual streamer CodeMiko has been banned from Twitch for the third time, leaving some fans asking if this is a permanent ban. 

Over the years, Twitch streamers have come up with different ways to stand out from the crowd instead of just being world-class at certain games. Some have ramped up production in a major way and you can’t really take your eyes off it.

That includes VTubers and virtual streamers too, who use a digital avatar, editing, and even in some cases, a motion capture suit, to replace themselves on-screen and take on a different persona. 

In the last few weeks, Codemiko – a streamer who takes the VTuber concept to a whole new level – has been getting massive numbers on Twitch. However, she’s now been banned, yet again.

The ban came on January 19 after StreamerBans, who tracks all the different bans – temporary or permanent – on Twitch, tweeted that CodeMiko had been suspended by Twitch. 

The reason for the ban, or its length, is unknown but some fans were quick to speculate on the reason. Some suggested that it was because she used the word Simp – which was recently banned by Twitch. 

Others noted that in a previous stream, where she was interviewing fellow streamer PayMoneyWubby, Codemiko was incredibly drunk and could have been banned for that. Twitch does have some strict rules around drinking on stream, especially if you get out of hand and overindulge. 

There’s no way of confirming just why she’s banned, or how long the ban will last unless the streamer reveals it herself. Twitch typically does not comment on individual bans.

The only thing she’s posted regarding the ban was the ‘sadge’ meme.

This would be her third ban, previously being banned twice in September of 2020.

However, a streamer has to be banned three times within a three month period to rack up a permanent ban, so, she’ll probably be back at some point in the near future.
