Former Overwatch professional player Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has quickly grown in popularity on Twitch as a full time streamer, earning praise from the self-proclaimed ‘face of Twitch’, Dr DisRespect.
After being released from Overwatch League team Dallas Fuel, following numerous controversies, xQc focused his efforts on streaming full time, playing mainly Overwatch with a mix of other games too.
Since his Overwatch account was recently suspended again, he has been playing a wider variety of games, proving that his audience isn’t just there because of the game he is playing.
Dr DisRespect, who shot to popularity on the streaming website in 2016, was asked by viewers what he knew of xQc and his emergence as one of the top streamers.
The Doc said that although he wasn’t too familiar with xQc, he knew that he wasn’t a full time Fortnite streamer, and said that to grow rapidly while not playing Fortnite is an impressive feat.
“He doesn’t look like he’s a full time Fortnite streamer, so if you can gather such a strong following in such a short amount of time and you’re not streaming Fortnite, then you’re doing something special and unique.”
xQc later watched and reacted to Dr DisRespect’s comments on his own stream, and was clearly thankful for the kind words.
The two streamers are very different, but also similar in that their channels are not known for playing only one game, and are instead popular because of the broadcaster’s personality.
xQc is fast approaching the 1 million follower mark on Twitch, which would secure his spot as one of the top 100 most followed channels.
