The 27-year-old streamer tweeted out a meme collage for the announcement of his new world record, while also tagging Forsen. He shared the meme quote “It’s Joever,” along with his time for the speed run of 16 minutes and 38 seconds.

This is a whole two minutes advancement over the previous world record set by Forsen. Earlier with a time of just over 18 minutes, Forsen had beat xQc in this sandbox game’s speedrun. The streamer himself saw Forsen’s record-setting speedrun, while commenting, “What the f*ck! That’s lucky as f*ck.”
