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.

Myth’s xQc impression was on point.

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.

Streamers who are part of Dream’s SMP Minecraft server such as TommyInnit, Tubbo, Quackity, and more, are topping the list of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch following an SMP finale stream.

The Minecraft community has experienced a giant surge in popularity throughout the past year, with the 2011 game providing a central focus for a huge number of streamers who have seen a boost in their follower count recently.

Largely this resurgence in popularity is due to the huge multi-streamer server named the ‘Dream SMP.’ Dream is a popular Minecraft speedrunner and YouTuber, and while the SMP (survival multiplayer server) started off as a simple fun server, it quickly progressed into remarkably detailed roleplay and lore, which has captivated fans across the world.

The Dream SMP is full of many hugely popular streamers and YouTubers.

The story of the Dream SMP features wars, betrayal, revolutions, and more, and these plotlines are acted out and developed by a huge host of streamers who have all appeared in the server or in content relating to the server.

Dream SMP dominate fastest-growing channels

Following a ‘finale’ stream that saw an end to part of the developing story, many of these Dream SMP streamers are shooting to the top of the ranks on Twitch, dominating the fastest-growing streamers list.

According to SullyGnome, 16-year-old Tommy is the fastest-growing account on the platform, with his average viewers at a whopping 300,000. This follows his finale stream in which he peaked at around 650,000 viewers.

Close behind Tommy, and all within the top ten fastest-growing streamers for the seven days leading up to January 24, are fellow SMP streamers awesamdude, Tubbo, RanbooLive, Quackity, Foolish Gamers, Sapnap, and Philza.

To see this list dominated by one group of people is certainly a testament to the growing popularity of the Dream SMP group. With so many creators on board, the amount of content is practically endless, and clearly a huge amount of work has gone into developing the lore.

Now this finale has passed, fans will be keen to know what’s going to happen next in the world of the Dream SMP, and there’s no doubt that this interest will provide an even bigger boost in numbers for these streamers.
