Drama has erupted between a number of the most popular streamers on Twitch, after Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel was caught ‘stream sniping’ his opponents in the Fall Guys Twitch Rivals event. Shroud and Tyler1 say they have lost all respect for their fellow streamer.

During a match from which xQc had already been eliminated, he was found to have grabbed an opposing player who was still competing, so that his teammate could ensure a qualifying spot.

Tyler1 later watched the clip of this happening, in disbelief that xQc had used this tactic. “Wait, he is doing it?!” tyler1 exclaimed, as he watched xQc grab an opponent, resulting in his own elimination from the game.

The match in question was a tie-breaker for third place, and by grabbing and eliminating the opponent, xQc ensured his own teammate could get 3rd instead.

Shroud angry with xQc

After the incident, there was immediate confusion and anger from the other players involved. The tournament had real money on the line, with the winning team securing $11,000 each.

In the end, Team Tanks won Twitch Rivals (check out the final placements here), but xQc’s action gained him the ire of other prominent streamers.

Shroud said he had complimented xQc for being hilarious hours before, “but now he does that, and all my respect is quite literally gone.”

Tyler1 agreed, but only if he had had respect for xQc in the first place. They established that Tfue, who was on xQc’s team, was “in the clear,” but wondered if xQc would face punishment from Twitch.

“No big partner has ever done that,” shroud explained. “I am so shocked, because I don’t know what’s going to happen, I don’t even think Twitch knows. I don’t know if they’re going to ban him for a week, a month, three days? I have no idea.”

xQc has apologized for his actions, and asked fans to stop defending him. “I’m sorry for my actions. I thought it would be funny. It did not change the outcome but it was still malicious. Sorry.”

Tyler1 confronted xQc and Tfue, in what turned into a shouting match between the two rival teams. Tfue took xQc’s side in the debate, but how seriously they were all taking it is unclear.

Whether Twitch does actually take action against xQc is anyone’s guess. Stream sniping is against Twitch rules, and even partnered streamers have been banned for it in the past.

However, given it would be xQc’s first instance, he may get away with a warning. Not to mention, he is one of the most-watched channels on the entire platform, so banning him would cause endless scrutiny and debate over whether it was fair and just.


Twitch streamer throws up after shouting too much

A Twitch streamer raising money for charity got a little bit too excited after a big donation came in, and literally threw up in the process.

Streamers often times use their platforms to help raise funds for causes they believe in. For WeThePeople1, this meant raising capital for the homeless in Boston.

While playing a game of Apex Legends, the streamer received a $200 donation, which put him over the $1000 mark in under an hour.

Pleased with himself, WeThePeople1 started shouting out, clearly hyped over how his viewers were contributing to the cause.

“You guys are nuts!” he screamed. “Listen, I want everyone to go f**king bonkers with the ‘gangs’ in chat right now! Everyone, go spam that sh*t.”

‘Gang’ is an emote exclusive to subscribers of WeThePeople1’s channel. Oftentimes streamers will ask their viewers to spam special emotes when their streams are popping off.

“I want you guys to spam that sh*t harder than ever! Harder than ever! Like you guys have never seen that ‘gang’ in your life and now you’re seeing it for the first time like it’s one thousand pounds of gold in front of you!” he blurted out. “Oh my God, you guys are the sh*t!”

Unfortunately for the streamer, those words weren’t the last things to come out of his mouth as puke blasted out and onto his hands.

“I just puked,” he said, holding up his arms in disgust while trying to get his headset off. “It’s all over my floor.”

After running off, the streamer returned a few moments later with some Febreze, but remained in high spirits. “This is some f***ing content, huh?” he laughed.

Eventually, however, he decided to just clean up later as he was going to need a lot of soap.

On the bright side, the streamer wasn’t deterred from keeping his broadcast going and has raised over $1100 at the time of this post.
