Formerly, he was a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player who represented teams such as A51 and Team Mythic in different competitions. As of 2019, Summit1g net worth is estimated to be massive $8 million.

Yet, later on, he would focus on streaming games like CS: GO along with other games he was great at including the World of Warcraft. Lazar was born on April 23, 1987, in Colorado, US. Unsurprisingly, it is known that Lazar was a big fan of video games from a young age and has today converted that same passion into a thriving profession.

Lazar is half-Hungarian and also has a younger brother who he resides together with. No details are present about his parents.

Regarding his personal life, Lazar was married to a Twitch streamer named Desirae but the two separated in 2016 that resulted in divorce though Lazar hasn’t spoken much about it. They were reportedly together for over 9 years and still continue to work professionally together. He is currently dating Lilchiipmunk.

Career

He initially started his career by playing WarZ but when Counter-Strike: Global Offensive would release, his popularity started to increase exponentially. This was when his current moniker of “1G” had originated. He initially worked as a call representative for Time Warner Cable before he was ready to commit full-time to stream since there was still a level of uncertainty about pursuing it full-time.

But, with a mix of good reasoning and intuition, Lazar decided that it was best that he gave his full-time attention towards it. His amazing competence that was topped by a not so overdone personality helped to breed an instant connection with his fans. He has also played other games too over time once he started to form a solid community including games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, GTA V, Escape from Tarkov, Fortnite, Apex Legends, and Sea of Thieves.

He had initially started to stream in 2012 and now, he has stood as one of the top streamers on Twitch with him even being the top followed streamer on Twitch from January 2018 to March 2018.

He is also known for having a humble attitude and when fellow streamer named Mitch Jones had been banned from the platform for some racist messages with his partner status being lost, Lazar had personally called him to encourage him to get back on track. Mitch appreciated this and that it was a big part of him coming back to the platform.

Yet, he has had some controversies in the past. As a player of Sea of Thieves, he was criticized for trolling some of his fellow players and spreading some toxicity. But, he argued that we are all humans and are full of emotions and so in a competitive environment, those emotions can get to you. Even his own fans were not thrilled when he collaborated together with Jake Paul in playing Fortnite together.

He was also among the finalist in  Twitch Streamer of the Year during the 9th Annual Shorty Awards. He is also active on Youtube and has over 600k subscribers as of right now with over 90 million views so far. Streaming has become his life and he mentions how his entire day involves around 8 to 12 hours of streaming. Streamer like Shroud, who is on the rise has even mentioned how he has been the inspiration behind video game streaming as a full-time career.
