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.
“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.
