Jaryd Russell Lazar, more commonly known by his online alias summit1g, is an American Twitch streamer and retired competitive Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player who formerly played for professional esports teams A51 and Mythic.[1] After retiring from competitive esports, Jaryd became a well-known streamer on Twitch by streaming CS:GO and WarZ. He currently streams a variety of video games, such as Escape from Tarkov, Grand Theft Auto V, Sea of Thieves, Valorant , and DayZ.[2][3]

Streaming on Twitch[edit]

In 2017, Jaryd garnered widespread attention for surpassing Tom 'Syndicate' Cassell in the number of followers on Twitch. And in 2018, Jaryd became the most-followed channel on the platform, surpassing Riot Games.[4]

In May 2020, Jaryd signed a multi-year contract with Twitch, regarding content and partnership support.[5][6] As of February 7, 2021, he has over 5.8 million followers on Twitch, and is ranked as the ninth-most-followed streamer on the platform.

Controversies faced on the Twitch platform[edit]

In May 2018, Lazar streamed with YouTuber Jake Paul and received complaints and criticism from fans for his decision to play with him.[7] In response to backlash from fans — with some even threatening to unfollow his Twitch channel — Lazar told viewers 'I'm a little disappointed in chat. I had hoped the 1g squad to be a little bit different. I thought some people had a little bit thicker skin.'[8]

In December 2019, Lazar's girlfriend, lilchiipmunk, claimed on Twitter that Twitch was promoting racism after a clip of fellow Twitch streamer Sweet Anita had gone viral, in which she unintentionally blurted out the N word as a result of her having Tourette's. At the time, lilchiipmunk was not aware that Anita suffered from Tourette's, prompting Lazar to publicly apologize, saying 'I would like to apologize to Sweet_Anita. I hope you’re doing okay through all the bullshit. You’re killing it on Twitch, keep it up and keep trucking through.[9]


In April 2020, Lazar was involved in a controversy surrounding comments he made towards Valorant, a free-to-play multiplayer tactical first-person shooter developed by Riot Games. He criticized the game for being poorly managed during the game's closed beta, as well as criticizing other streamers that streamed Valorant at the time for manipulating Twitch's 'Drops' system (which allowed viewers watching Valorant streams on Twitch to randomly receive game keys that provided access to the closed beta) in order to increase their viewer counts and the total number of viewers for the game on the platform.[10] However, Lazar later tweeted an apology on Twitter and called for a truce (which has since been deleted).

Gaming merchandise has steadily carved out a premium market in recent years. With a lot of gamers able to use their disposable income on the hobby, there is room for some extravagant purchases to be made. For example, the top-end collector's edition for Resident Evil Village, featuring a replica of Chris Redfield's coat, comes in at $1,800 USD, which is a price tag that seems high even for a game that is generating a lot of positive buzz. However, something like this pales in comparison to a mouse that Twitch streamer Jaryd 'Summit1g' Lazar recently received.

Summit1g is one of the biggest names on Twitch, with around six million followers tuning in to watch the variety streamer. Once a competitive CS:GO player, Summit1g drifts between a few main games, with his most recent focus being the NoPixel RP server in Grand Theft Auto 5. With such a high profile on Twitch, Summit1g is a sought-after streamer for endorsements and sponsors, which is why it should come as no surprise that the viral hype marketing team at Finalmouse reached out with an unusual product.

The popular streamer showed off a diamond-encrusted mouse that appears to be a one-of-a-kind variant of Finalmouse's Starlight-12 God series mice. As Summit1g gave his Twitch viewers a look at the blinged-out mouse, his chat let him know the device is likely valued around $100,000 USD, making it more of an art object than a practical, everyday mouse. Summit1g said he would 'lock it up in a safe every night,' but as far as excessive gaming swag goes, this is right up there with a solid gold PS5.

Sorry for being late. Was picking up this bad boy.

When most gamers need only spend around $60 to pick up a quality mouse like the Corsair Sabre RGB Pro, or any of the dozens of affordable options out there, a six-figure mouse is outlandish. Meant to drum up hype for an upcoming product, put on display and likely never used, Summit1g's mouse will likely secure a prominent spot on camera for all to see during his upcoming streams.

While the entire point of the diamond mouse is to be excessive, there is still a strong luxury gaming segment where goods almost as wild as a $100K mouse exist. From gaming chairs retailing well over $1,000, to outerwear inspired by Death Stranding going for nearly $2,000, there is clearly a market for high-end stuff. Summit1g might not frag out with his new diamond mouse, but he will most likely put it on display with pride for all on Twitch to see.
