Fortnite pro Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani pulled off an epic xQc impersonation during a wild rant about why controller aim assist is broken.
French Canadian Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is one of Twitch’s top streamers, and has a very distinct accent that involves speaking at super fast speeds, frequently saying the word ‘dude,' and raging as he talks.
“Look at it this way, dude,” he began and started stuttering to emphasize Lengyel’s dialect. “You have an issue with the keyboard and mouse, the sound pads, monitors, right, you have a problem with us, but what you’re not taking into consideration for this very specific situation, and right this down chat,” he rambled.
At this point Myth’s chat was already amused at the impression and spamming the LUL emote at will.
“You’re not taking into consideration the flux capacitors,” he continued, breaking out the Back to the Future reference. “That take into account the trajectory of the accurate equation to shoot the bullets in the video game within the in-game engine.”
Anyone who has ever watched xQc could easily see where Myth was coming from and could probably easily imagine these same words coming from the former Overwatch pro.
“If you’re going to have a problem with us complaining – the consoles, dude and the aim assist, then you really need to see it from our perspective. From our perspective, it’s very easy to come to the conclusion that it is actually OP, dude,” he went on.
To finish off the rant, Kabbani whipped out an iconic line from many xQc rants. “If you cannot see that then you’re a f**king soy boy c**k!” he screamed.
Overall, the impression was pretty much bang on and was of the best xQc takes yet.
The Fortnite community has been complaining about the strength of aim assist on console for some time so it’s a hot button topic. Popular streamers like NICKMERCS and even the real xQc have raged against the feature for being “anti-competitive.”
And, as it turns out, aim assist makes for great material for an xQc-inspired rant.
