Girl Gamer Robbed At Gunpoint While Streaming Dota 2

A video came across my desk this morning of a cute young women streaming on Twitch.tv. I see tons of these a day. Yet, as I was getting ready to click over to the next one I see something that leaves me speechless. Nikki Elise was streaming Dota 2, when someone decided to break into her house and rob her at gun point. All while she was live on Twitch.tv. Here is the video below. (Dota 2, PC, TwitchTV)

It's really sad to see that there are still so many idiots breaking into others houses.... hope she's safe and even if this will leave serious psychological marks on her. Too bad that the footage doesn't really show the guys face but I hope they get what they deserve. What a world we live in ...

hummmm...... could be simply a "stunt" for getting attention too, just sayin.

Zod its called reality. say what you will but stuff like this have been happening since the dawn of time. if someone is struggling do you expect them not to what ever they have to to eat. this is why the poorest places have the highest crime rate. ill say hes a idiot because he didnt wear a mask.

This is so crappy. I hope they find the people who did this.

That's nuts!!
SpiralTear  +   536d ago
Um...wow, that's insane. It seems her channel has been taken down for emergency investigation too.
Randostar  +   536d ago
Looks like they got a few rifles.
DVS-Zev  +   536d ago
Yeah.Likely they knew her or someone who does told them about it.Dad probably owned some guns and they stole them
tigertron  +   536d ago
At least the camera caught the guy's face even if it was briefly.
JoeIsMad  +   536d ago
I'm sure they'll figure out who did it and arrest the guy. Her Twitch stream is down, but likely for investigative purposes.
HammadTheBeast  +   536d ago
They already caught one of them and the other is being found.

Ill see if I can find the source.
modesign  +   536d ago
was this in the USA
GentlemenRUs  +   536d ago
*Only in the USA

Will this stuff happen ;)
Necro_559  +   536d ago
100% not true. In fact, i have seen other people get robbed on stream. It was always from Canada. I bet this is too.
HighResHero  +   536d ago
Only if you ignore all the home invasions and murders in South Africa, UK, Australia, and many other parts of the world.
Anway, I think we all hope she is okay. I know I really do. I think that's something we can all agree on.
Guwapo77  +   536d ago
It's in Tempe, AZ.
persona4chie  +   536d ago
I know there is a bigger point to this, but was it necessary to say girl gamer?
illidari  +   536d ago
Did the description need to claim she is cute? And young?
Spotie  +   536d ago
That bothered me about as much as the fact that she got robbed in the first place. Just say "Gamer Robbed" and get to the point; it doesn't matter if the person being affronted is male or female, as they're still being subjected to something that's fundamentally wrong.
thehobbyist  +   535d ago
In basic journalism we state the sex of the person involved in the crime. Example: A 22 year-old male was *blank* this morning.
Like that, so while it isn't necessary to say so. It's how real journalism works.
persona4chie  +   535d ago
That is true, however i feel that because it is real journalism and it says dota 2 in the title calling her a female would have been fine. At that point there would have been no reason to call her a girl gamer though
Iceball2000  +   536d ago
wow that's really scary I hope she's ook and they find them!

MetaReapre  +   536d ago
Wtf man, that's terrible. People are insane. This honestly pisses me off to see this kind of thing.
Ripsta7th  +   536d ago
Was it really real or just w set up to get exposure?
memots  +   536d ago
Are we really this jaded that we need to think that everything is fake and Photoshop ?

Think ...
mushroomwig  +   536d ago
With the things people lie about these days...yes, for good reason.
Codewow  +   536d ago
In the world where people can do whatever they want on the internet... yes. It would not be hard to pull this off as a fake.. I hope she's fine either way. It's not like a female streamer needs the exposure anyways. They can get 4,000 viewers just by stating they are female in the title.
fallacious  +   536d ago
Well there was a streamer who claimed to be physically disabled and asking for donations, then the jackass just got up and walked away.
KonsoruMasuta  +   536d ago
It was real. It's been on the news. 2 suspects, 1 in custody, and the other still out there.

Are_The_MaDNess  +   535d ago
it was real, they dont need money as far as i know. both Sunsfan and Sajedene get alot from their DotaCinema Website and the Dota 2 items they helped releasing.

this isnt fake. as i dont see them needing to fake something like this to get goon money if they are in trouble like that.
silvacrest  +   536d ago
wow, thats messed up
xer0  +   536d ago
Oh fuck, she got robbed by a white dude.
I feel for her!
Mutant-Spud  +   536d ago
Yeah what are the odds eh? You'd have to be pretty unlucky yo be robbed by a White dude in the U.S.
indyman77  +   536d ago
Most of the prison population in the USA is white. Most of the criminals displayed on the news are other.

Most of the world is brainwashed by moving pictures. And so they assume what they see is reality.

from what been said on this website and around the web people think blacks and othe minorities only do stuff like this in america. look at the racist watch dog article. how many dumb people on there. they still dont even know Chicago is still segregated.

i do question what they are into. people dont just rob your house at gunpoint without you doing dirt or unless everybody know you have money with no defense.
iceman06  +   536d ago
How is getting robbed by a "white dude" any different for you to "feel for her"? IMO, it's just a sad state of affairs that you can't feel safe in your own home...race excluded!

It was reported that she was alright, just shocked after that experience. What a crazy thing to happen while streaming, for both her and the viewers to see live.

disgusting life destroying capitalism at work here..

without money we'd all be rich. crime would become nearly non existent when humans are civilized to the point of actual freedom, aka access to food and shelter without money.

currently were still in a disgusting careless dark age of civilisation.

No without money we'd go to a trading and bartering system in which those who are poor would be even more poor because they'd have nothing to trade. Think before you post.
SonyKong64  +   535d ago
your mind can't function past I have more things then you do society..

your not really to blame though, you've never known anything else to exist.

everyone could literally have anything they wanted, to an extent. 1 hour works weeks could keep the machine grinding it's gears to provide for all.

but then how would the ugly sociopaths (successful businessmen) get pussy? or able to afford children sex slaves?

boil it down, let your indoctrinate delusions melt away <3
LordDhampire  +   536d ago
prolly just a stunt for those donations
thehobbyist  +   535d ago
Pretty hard to donate to a stream that's been taken down for investigation.
Jacktrauma  +   536d ago
Hope everything is ok with her and her family. She probably got reported for being afk to :(
Rockefellow  +   536d ago
This author is as dumb as they come. No respect for the individual in the video that was robbed, ignoring any context relevant to the story. There's a reason most journalists write as if they are already be familiar with the details of the stories they're covering, even if they don't actually have any knowledge of the people or games they're writing about-- it saves them the embarrassment on display in this article. People don't fault journalists for acting as if they're omniscient-- but they sure as hell raise their eyebrows at those who can't be bothered to do thirty seconds of research on things.

If it was real then thats sucks.

If it was fake, then it was a total scumbag move to upload this video.
qzp  +   535d ago
They said they were not robbers initially and were looking for some guy over drug money but ended up robbing them anyway.

This the victims youtube channel www.youtube.com/user/DotaCinem a
They are famous within the dota community
