Tyler “Ninja” Blevins one of gaming’s top streamers, leaving an audience of over 14.7 million followers behind on Twitch before moving to Mixer - but he’s not the only popular streamer on the net, with fellow broadcaster Felix “xQc” Lengyel also boasting a sizeable fanbase.
However, it wasn’t popularity that got these two streamers in a hilariously heated exchange during KEEMSTAR’s Minecraft Monday: instead, it was the competition itself, with Ninja taking a jab at the Overwatch pro during the fray.
According to Minecraft YouTuber "Technoblade," xQc himself had made a few not-so-subtle jabs toward their team, claiming that he didn’t have anything to be scared of due to Technoblade’s partnership with Ninja.
“I was watching [xQc’s] stream and he’s like, ‘I’m not scared of Techno, he’s with Ninja this week,’” Technoblade claimed. “‘We got this. This is our week to win.’”
“xQc is a little shit, dude,” Ninja replied in a self-deprecating roast. “Bro, literally, he’s totally just shit. Let’s go, dude! Imagine being tied right now to me! I have maybe 30 hours in Minecraft in my entire life.”
Technoblade’s claims weren’t the only insults xQc had doled out toward the duo, either: he gave another hilarious roast during his post game interview, joking that Techno had only paired with Ninja due to his fame, rather than his Minecraft skills.
“Listen, no offence to TechnoBlade, but I feel like he went for the bigger streamer instead of the better team mate," the streamer joked. "Me and m0xyy have something indestructible, and that’s friendship.”
Unfortunately for Ninja and Technoblade, xQc and m0xxy ended up taking first place, despite being tied with the pair in a hilarious turn of events.
However, this victory marked a significant win for Lengyel, who has been participating in KEEMSTAR’s Minecraft series since its inception, finally securing the W with a whopping 300 points.
With both xQc and Ninja being known for their over-the-top reactions and hilarious moments in-game, it comes as no surprise that the two bantered words during the heat of the competition - and there's no telling what will come of their "rivalry" in future games.
