Streamer Destroys Setup On Twitch After Losing Overwatch Game

Nothing wries a smile from my not-easily entertained lips like a rage quit clip. The exuberant outpour of emotion encapsulates everything that gaming is about: wearing your performance on your sleeve before smashing up your kit. Humble, yet hilarious. 

As for the most infuriating games, Overwatch finds itself quite high on the list. 

The title lends itself to a type of style that means when a game is reaching its climax, just a single tick of a metronome can be enough to tilt the tie in the favour of one team. With such small margins, Blizzard's futuristic FPS shooter is never short of intense entertainment.

Such as was evident through "Snuffles'" stream on May 12. 

The Twitch streamer, who often operates on Overwatch lost the plot during a game, completely smashing his set-up after being killed.

As the lights were going out on the final push for Snuffles' agent Winston, an enemy Doomfist sucker-punched Snuffles away from the objective, sending him into a fit of rage. 

Explicit Warning - Clip contains bad language.

Keyboard smashed. Stream disconnected. PC wasted. Desk obliterated. 

The golden pureness of gaming in its finest light. 

Having ended his stream following the self-made riot, the player didn't return to the platform for the day and took to Twitter to inform his fans of the damage caused.

Having put his desk back together (sort of), Snuffles returned to the platform to have a more chilled-out session with his chat.

Despite the laughs, raging can be rather dangerous in gaming. With consoles and PCs costing hundreds, or even thousands, of pounds, the damage to ones kit can land players in a spot of bother. It's certainly not something covered by insurance.

Hopefully, Snuffles can relax in future games, before exploding into an xQc-esque rant.
