Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel got a shock when he was stream sniped in real life by his good friend Dimitri ‘GreekGodx’ Antonatos during a recent broadcast.

xQc has been good friends with Greek for a while now, and the pair caused a menace the last time they were together at TwitchCon 2019 in San Diego, when Greek got xQc kicked out a party, among other things.

During a Friday night stream on January 24, the streamer decided to surprise his friend while he was playing the 1996 point-and-click horror game Harvester.

xQc and Greek got into plenty of shenanigans at TwitchCon 2019.

As xQc was just getting started in the game, Greek snuck up behind the streamer and scared the living bejesus out of him.

“Who is this guy dude?” the Canadian said over the game audio, which made deciphering exactly what the pair were saying next to impossible.

It’s not hard to tell that Dimitri was happy to see Felix, and he even brought his fellow streamer an offering of some exclusive merch.

The gift was the hilarious kind you would expect from Greek – a shirt with his greekBrow emote proudly displayed on the front.

After graciously accepting the tribute, the streamer explained to his friend exactly why he was playing a freaky, 24-year-old video game.

‘When you run out of other games, this is what you play,” he stated. “When you’ve played all the games and you’re out of games, you play this. This is what you play.”

Greek said it best when he asked “What the f*ck is this game?”

Greek took off shortly after and xQc only lasted in Harvester for another hour, before moving on with his stream from the strange game.

With the 26-year-old showing up on the Canadian’s broadcast though, it does raise the possibility of a crossover in the near future, but whether that will happen or not remains to be seen.

Myth justifies surprising decision to unfollow everyone on social media

Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani is taking a new approach on social media, as the popular TSM content creator has revealed why he felt it was time to “experiment” by unfollowing everyone on all of his accounts.

Myth is one of the most popular content creators on the internet. The 21-year-old boasts over seven million followers on both Twitch and Instagram, with another four million subscribers on YouTube as well. He’s grown a massive community with his energetic vibes and impressive gameplay, but Myth just made a drastic change.

Across all social media accounts, the content creator has now wiped the slate clean. He no longer follows any streamer pals, no business contacts, or anyone in between. Myth follows a grand total of zero accounts across all of his platforms.

Why make such a sudden change? Myth explained it all in a series of tweets on December 2. In a difficult year as it is, he felt it was the right time to “experiment with having zero people followed across [his] social media sites.”

One of the main factors behind this decision was to stop himself from “comparing” to others. It can be easy to see idyllic Instagram posts, for instance, and feel a little down in the dumps by comparison. Everyone can empathize with that experience these days. So in order to block it out, his social media is now wiped clean.

The current global crisis certainly didn’t help either. “I’ve had some of the loneliest moments of my life,” he explained. “Social media doesn’t make that feeling any better, at least with the way I currently use it. It just ends up making me feel like other people got it better”

Obviously, most social media personalities are often sharing the highlights in their lives. Rarely do we see our favorite content creators truly breaking down that barrier and sharing everything. Most of the time, we only see what they want us to see. Myth is well aware of this and understands “that’s not the full reality of things.”

Despite this, it’s still a “really draining mindset to have,” he explained. “I wanna eradicate it.” In light of his transparency, countless others reached out to commend his decision. 

“You’re an amazing streamer,” Dakotaz followed up. “Do whatever you gotta do.”

While Myth has unfollowed everyone, he wanted to stress that he’ll still be active and interacting with his fanbase. “I can still see and appreciate comments and messages,” he added.

Don’t expect Myth to keep his accounts this clean forever though. It may be a solid reprieve during this chaotic year, but even he joked that in “six months [he’ll] definitely be back” to his usual ways.
