Stream snipers can ruin your gaming experience

The 34-year-old streamer does not wish to play with other people while streaming. After getting a series of stream snipers in his DayZ lobbies, he finally lost his cool. The retired Counter-Strike player stated it is just not fun to play games while people are constantly trying to get into his game.

Naturally, it would make things unfair for the streamer, as the enemies can track his moves. He got so infuriated with the string of snipers that he left the game after dying to a miscreant.

” I just can’t wait to be done with it, I can’t f*****g wait to never have to f*****g play video games with any of you f***s, who try to get into my game. One day, I will not do this Twitch thing anymore and one day, I will just be f*****g gaming and chilling dude and no one is going to know f*****g s**t. Where I am at, I ll be able to come out with content I want to come out with, this live streaming sucks”

Did Summit1g hint a move away from Twitch?

It is quite evident that he is not too keen on live streaming his games. It degrades his gaming experience while also frustrating him mentally. This can clearly take a toll on anyone’s mind, who is merely looking to play and relax with his viewers.

It seems like Summit1g is looking at his life without live streaming. It is quite possible to do that, as YouTube could serve as an alternate platform. The streamer could come up with daily videos about his time in the game without streaming, which will also resolve the issue of stream snipers.
