Team SoloMid’s Ali ‘Overwatch professional.

The streaming pair have even hit it off as friends, meeting up at TwitchCon, and with Myth being able to pull out his impression in front of the Canadian. Yet, Myth has taken things up a notch by reciting xQc’s iconic ‘six consoles, ten computers’ rant with some incredible accuracy.

TSM Myth, InstagramMyth is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers, but he can’t help himself when it comes to trying to be xQc.

During his November 3 stream, the TSM star had been chatting with fellow streamers Pokimane, GreekGodx, PokeLawls, and RajjPatel when his now-infamous impression became a topic of conversation.

He dove in, taking some time to focus on what xQc would say about Overwatch before switching course. “I’m still shooting at walls, dude, he’s got six consoles dude, cat cam, cat tree, satellite, radio dude, bunch of fu**ing wires,” Myth repeated with incredible accuracy, leaving his fellow streamers jokingly accusing him of practicing in his free time.

“I swear to God, I didn’t dude!” he replied, snapping out of the impressive impression. “I didn’t! I don’t know, one day I woke up and I was able to do the xQc impression, I swear to God.”

While the conversation moved on to his other impression, Myth did break out the voice one more time for a final shout of “six consoles!” leaving Twitch chat spamming another round of xQc emotes.

Myth has tried to imitate other streamers, including GreekGod himself an even Summit1g, but none have been quite impressive as xQc.

Fans of the streaming pair are still waiting for the day that they join forces in a game like Fortnite and bamboozle everyone with their identical voices.

Just one day following the announcement that U.S. politician Alexandria ‘AOC’ Ocasio-Cortez would be streaming on Twitch, her very first Among Us broadcast shattered expectations as one of the most-watched events to date.

The Amazon-owned streaming platform has seen a number of historic moments of the years in gaming culture. From groundbreaking Fortnite streams between Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Drake, to Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek’s enormous return. Now, AOC has penciled in her spot among the history books too. 

After an out of the blue tweet on October 19, AOC revealed that she was up to streaming for a good cause. The politician had her sights set on playing Among Us in order to promote proper voting plans ahead of the 2020 Presidential election.

She soon had an all-star lineup of crewmates and imposters as everyone from Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys to Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo lined up to join her. Before she even went live, tens of thousands had followed her account in preparation.

As things kicked off on October 20, her first-ever Twitch stream quickly exploded.

The gaming community gathered together to show support as her viewership skyrocketed. Before the first round even got underway, more than 400,000 viewers had jumped into the channel.

AOC streamed for just over three and a half hours. Among Us was in focus the entire time as she played the mega-popular indie game with a variety of gaming personalities.

Overall viewership peaked at roughly 439,000, though her account also passed the 500,000 follower mark shortly after as well.

It was one of, if not the most-watched Twitch streams from a brand new account.

For her first broadcast ever, it ranks highly among the most successful individual streams of all time. In fact, she’s now fifth overall when it comes to the most-watched streams in Twitch history. 

While major esports competitions and landmark events boast bigger numbers, AOC now sits atop Twitch with one of the biggest solo-streams of all time.

Her first appearance on Twitch one for the history books. Though she also showed off some great Among Us gameplay. Her very first elimination on Pokimane quickly blew up across social media and the hits kept coming throughout the session.

While it may be a one-off event, for the time being, AOC’s Twitch stream was one for the ages. Perhaps it’ll be sooner rather than later before she makes her way back to the spaceship for another Among Us stream.

The Congresswoman did tease another stream too: “Hopefully this isn’t my last!”
