Major German Twitch streamer Marcel “MontanaBlack” Eris hosted the live show Get Away! on the streaming channel Joyn. His guests had to face challenges in a prison and fight for victory in the final. Knossi was able to win the event, but a finalist was seriously injured.
It was the first major event of their own in a long career: MontanaBlack, together with the streaming broadcaster Joyn, organized a major live show with well-known guests from the German streaming scene – Get Away!.
- Kayla Shyx

Among the participants were the largest Twitch streamers in Germany. They had to face challenges and only the best 3 made it to the finals.
On MeinMMO we show you which games they had to face, how the event ended and what the audience reactions are.
Get Away!: Knossi wins, Kayla injured
What were the challenges like? To determine the 3 finalists, the influencers went through 5 challenges. All with a prison theme:
- 1st Challenge: Escape from a prison cell
- 2. Challenge: Everyone had to open locks together
- 3rd challenge: hidden object game – employee ID cards in the canteen
- 4th Challenge: Get through the sewers into the washroom
- 5. Challenge: Abseiling out of a window with a bed sheet
Tasks had to be completed as quickly as possible to win, but there were also time penalties for poor performance. The top 3 had to face the “ultimate MontanaBlack Challenge” at the end.
Who won the event? Knossi, UnsympathischTV and Kayla Shyx faced each other in the final. The last task was called “Wall of Pain” – the participants had to dig through a wall that was completely filled with sand.
Knossi was able to win the last game and was the winner at the end of the show.
However, the final was overshadowed by a nasty injury.
What was that injury? It wasn’t entirely clear during the show. The corresponding scene was not shown because the camera was aimed at Knossi and UnsympathischTV at the time.
Twitch streamer Kayla Shyx was seriously injured. She reported on her condition in an Instagram story. The story was shared on Twitter:
Kayla Shyx writes: “Hey guys. Both arms are broken and I was operated on straight away with general anesthesia”.
The accident probably didn’t happen because of the digging challenge. Monte made a first statement on Twitter:
She wanted to pull herself up, fell backwards and wanted to support herself with both arms

Accordingly, Kayla Shyx wanted to pull herself up on something, may have slipped and fallen backwards. She wanted to support herself with both hands, but the impact was so strong that she broke both her arms.
Where can I see the event now? At the time of writing, there is no way to view the event retrospectively.
What do viewers say about the show? Reactions to the show have been mixed. The event got a lot of praise and many viewers found it entertaining (via twitter.com).
But especially moderator and organizer MontanaBlack did not get away well with many viewers. He was constantly on his e-cigarette and is said not to have been optimally prepared. Many fans emphasize that it was his first event of this kind.
In general, opinions differ quite widely, but many see potential in such events.
Further criticism went in the direction of the games and challenges. They were too easy for some viewers and not exciting enough. Especially the finale is criticized. Here there should have been a clear advantage for the winner Knossi – his ankle shackles had come loose, the other participants were more handicapped.
