Starfield players shot for the stars and re-created the game’s logo on r/places, a hugely popular digital collage board where vast communities represent their favourite people, places, and general stuff. However, their hopes were dashed by a single Italian Twitch streamer.
The logo did exist for a brief, beautiful period, as immortalized with a post by user The_Irish_Rover26 on the Starfield Reddit. However, the eventual tragic destruction was also catalogued thanks to salty replies.
“Yeah, some garbage Twitch streamer invaded like they’ve done to so many other communities’ creations. Fuck streamers,” writes user Niitte. On the other hand, rationalization came in the form of forward-thinking Starfield fans, like user Razcsi, who has hope that future iterations on r/places will have a bigger Starfield presence: “Too few people are active here, and even fewer care about place. Give it a couple years until the next place and I bet there will be much more people who’ll happily draw some Starfield related content on there.”
So, who exactly is responsible for dashing the hopes of these Starfield fans? Enter the community of Italian variety streamer Tumblurr, who was pleasantly surprised when his own patch of internet land was established alongside the Argentinian flag in the bottom right corner of this gigantic Reddit canvas.
Such is the way with places. Takeovers like this happen all the time. As of writing, there’s a bit of a war between Vietnam and One Piece fans, and more clashes are expected on the page in the coming days. Starfield fans will have to pull up in greater strength next year if they want to carve out a more permanent position.
