Streamer AdeptTheBest has revealed that TwitchCon and BlizzCon events are now just seen as opportunities for women to hook up with popular streamers with big followings. 

The broadcaster, who has over 56,000 followers on Twitch, has been sharing some inside scoops during her livestreams in the midst of a series of streamer meet-up events in Texas. 

Not only does she reveal the tactics groups of women deploy in order to capture the attention of more popular streamers, but also uses Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel as a prime example of somebody who could be targeted by women at these conventions.

xQc, InstagramAdept’s relationship with Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel was never publicly confirmed, but fans had their suspicions.

“A lot of girls go to BlizzCon and TwitchCon, literally skeeving around like ‘where are the streamers at?'” she said during the broadcast, making a strange slurp-like noise with her mouth.

Explaining the tactics of these people further, she gave her viewers an idea of how they would approach a big name streamer at these events. 

“‘Oh, there’s xQc, he gets…’ – who at the time was getting about 9,000 viewers – ‘you see that one right there, that one gets 9,000 viewers and probably like 10,000 subs. Alright, let’s go in.'”

AdeptTheBest has been seen playing Overwatch with xQc in the past, a former professional player in his own right, with reports suggesting that they were once in a relationship together. They featured on each other’s streams periodically in 2018, but their relationship was never publicly confirmed. 

After searching for her own clip on Reddit, she stumbled across some comments from redditors that she “knew was coming,” but wasn’t happy with them nonetheless. So, Adept quickly hit back at claims that she is just like the girls she’s complaining about. 

“Who chose to live in my fucking house?” Adept added, in reference to xQc moving in with her in the past. “You fucking retard. Who chose to live there? Did I force him to live there and stay there against his will? I don’t think so.”

Whether or not her initial claims are accurate, or perhaps exaggerated, is a mystery for those who are yet to make an appearance at the regularly scheduled gatherings. 

However, it does give fans of hers – and other internet personalities – an idea about the situations popular figures in the streaming industry are put into at these events.

Cyberpunk 2077 stands by streamers amid Twitch DMCA controversy

The Cyberpunk 2077 team at CD Projekt RED have confirmed that streamers will not have to worry about the new heavy DMCA regulations on Twitch when streaming their game, as the soundtrack has been built from scratch.

Twitch streamers were left frustrated and worried on October 21, after a wave of DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) warnings were sent regarding their past VODs and clips, with some even being deleted.

Creators are now resorting to drastic measures to protect their channels and ensure their ability to upload future content, after it was discovered that past streams are now being picked apart. For many that means erasing the vast majority of their old content.

This included popular streamer Pokimane who said “Today, tomorrow, at some point, you guys are going to come across my channel and there’s going to be zero content. Sucks to say, but it is what it is.”

This is concerning particularly for gaming streamers, who may play a game like Grand Theft Auto, where copyrighted music is played in the game world, through car radios etc. But the team behind the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077 have eased that concern for their upcoming game.

Twitch variety broadcaster DansGaming asked the developers whether the game would have a “streamer mode” that would allow creators the “option to mute Copyrighted Music that is licensed for the game so content creators don’t get DMCAs.”

The team replied that while there are more details to come in the near future, “our soundtrack has been created from the scratch – this includes all tracks from the numerous artists we work with. Their music has been made specifically for our game making this a bit smoother hopefully.”

This is no doubt a huge relief to both creators and the developers, as streamers will be able to dive into what looks to be one of the biggest games of the year worry-free, and devs will be able to benefit from the amazing community that can emerge thanks to streamers.

Streamer DrLupo praised the developers, saying “they gave the go-ahead to content creators, they’re f**king smart, they made it all [the music].”

CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world action-adventure RPG, set in the dystopian Night City, and is due to release on November 19.
