(Some) Streamers Are The Worst


Recommended Posts

If you can’t do the time, don’t do the crime. 

 

Harsh maybe, but they will ease up on it in a while, just letting him sweat. Some people are moaning that the penalties are inconsistent and Epic aren’t clear what the punishments are for various offences. I like that, RNG punishment is brilliant - makes the risk/reward element of cheating unpredictable. Don’t want to gamble, don’t cheat. Simple.

Sledgehammer bans are so passé. Let him come back but give him a special title or skin which can’t be changed, or bias matchmaking for cheaters so that they’re joined by other cheaters. Way more fun :P 

 

By the by, glitching money's by far the most fun I had in GTA V's multiplayer. Getting one over on Rockstar in a game that glorifies crime against the greedy was a perfect fit. Best crime sim.

The guy who assaulted his pregnant partner while streaming has pleaded guilty. 

 

And he's been sentenced to a 14 month good behaviour bond.

A Sydney gamer who inadvertently live-streamed himself assaulting his pregnant partner has narrowly avoided being sent to jail....sentenced to a 14-month good behaviour bond after being convicted of domestic violence-related common assault.

 

His lawyer told Picton Local Court the assault was "just a slap".

"He's a loving, caring person with no history of domestic violence," 

"On this day he just slapped his partner."

He withdrew his remarks after being rebuked by magistrate Mark Douglass.

"I would not in any way accept the submission this was just a slap in the face. The court rejects that submission," Mr Douglass said.

 

As for consequences

 

The court heard that (he) had on several occasions lost his job due to widespread media coverage, had wept after the incident was publicised on gaming websites and he was abused via social media.

The only streamer I have time for is Asuka's/Kana's. A wonderous demon in the ring, the most adorable klutz in the world trying to play Forza or American Truck Simulator. All this and she does cooking videos too.

 

Does she stream live on YouTube? I've just seen the (great) cooking videos.

How DSP continues to scrape 300 odd viewers a day is beyond me.  Still, it is funny as his detractors continue generate more traffic than he does.

 

You know something is wrong when people are more interested in watching and support streams/videos ridiculing you.

People watch other people play sports much better than them all the time dude. I think watchin excessibe amounts of youtube/twitch is bad but I don' think there's anything wrong with watching people play a game well.    Aimbot usage was stupid though. 

 

It isn't bad. I sacked off my TV license in 2013 and use YT as my main source of entertainment. It's great with a decent adblocker and I get to watch loads of programs that suit me.

He's still going? Is he still begging for donations for the first hour of his stream, for people to pay his bills?

I dont follow streamers or youtube drama, but even I have heard that Keemstar is a giant douche. Well now his sponsors have dropped him due to a video made by H3H3

 

 

Hopefully more sanctions will follow.

Mike Z isn’t a professional streamer but this is still a bit of a yikes moment...

Skullgirls Lead Designer Makes "I Can't Breathe" Joke On Stream To 13 Seconds Of Silence

 

During one round, another commentator describes the ongoing gameplay as "suffocating," in reference to how one-sided the match was at that moment. Zaimont then replies with "Would it be fair to say that you can't breathe?" It's a tasteless joke based on "I can't breathe," the final words uttered by George Floyd as he was held down by police with a knee on his neck. The words have since become a slogan repeated by Black Lives Matter protesters as a reminder of the excessive use of force used on Floyd. 

 

There was a noticeable amount of silence after the joke was told, as the match continues for 13 seconds without commentary. Zaimont's attempts to play it off after the fact didn't work. Later on he says that he was trying to bring light to the BLM movement rather than make fun of it, though this explanation did little to subside the growing anger directed at him from the fighting game community.

Another recent one: Cryaotic was accused of (and confessed to) grooming underage girls. 
 

Quote

On June 20, 2020, Cryaotic admitted to engaging in romantic activities with underage girls. The video he posted was 4 minutes and 23 seconds long, and he received a large amount of backlash. The video itself was short, and there were many that felt he glossed over the major parts of the situation and the apology was lackluster. He has since said he will post a followup video with a more thought out statement.

I never watched him, but I’ve heard of him through my followers...
