Félix ‘xQc‘ Lengyel’s channel has grown significantly on Twitch during the course of 2019 and new statistics suggest variety might be the key to his success. 

The former Overwatch professional player has established himself as one of the biggest streaming assets on Twitch since making the move to full-time broadcasting, with over 1.6 million followers, but he has never limited himself to just Blizzard’s multiplayer title.

In fact, his regular viewers will know more than anybody that they just don’t know what to expect every time he goes live, whether it be a session on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, Escape from Tarkov, Overwatch, or something completely different.

While there are many streamers out there, just like Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, that predominantly stick to one battle royale game like Fortnite, or PUBG, xQc is always mixing things up and the stats show it’s really paying off.

Esports agent Ferris Ganzman revealed in a tweet that the streamer had played 356 different games on his channel during the course of the last year, amassing 3,414 hours of streaming time and a jaw-dropping 55 million hours of his content watched on the platform.

TwitchTracker, a website that monitors the different movements for high profile streamers, shows that during the timeframe mentioned by Ferris, he has attracted almost a million new followers to his channel as well.

That’s not all, though. The chart shows below that the Canadian is seeing an average of over 16,500 people come to his broadcasts every time he decides to go live.

A big part of xQc’s success, just like any other streamer, has been the development of his loyal fanbase. While many of them do spend their time trying to roast him in the chat, for his birthday this year they had a huge surprise lined up for the streamer and it was a lot more wholesome than what subscribers have got used to.

He will be hoping for even more of those memorable moments to happen on stream in the future and with such impressive growth, there’s a good chance he’ll be around for a long time to come.

Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek was left in awe after Sykkuno managed to shoot him dead on the OTV Rust server, and it was safe to say he was impressed by the streamer’s aim, saying “you killed me, you’re amazing!”

The Offline TV Rust sever has been a huge talking point since the start of this year, as with the enormous host of streamers participating there are endless amounts of content for fans to consume on the daily.

The server even ended up needing to be split into two after people’s varying playstyles caused some tension and calls for a need to separate PVP-focused players and roleplay-focused players.

While it was originally released in 2013, Rust has experienced a surge in popularity thanks to the OTV server.

However, that’s not to say that there haven’t been plenty of iconic moments between streamers, as even though the game can get pretty violent, the vast range of streamer interactions has led to some great scenes for fans.

That was the case for Sykkuno fans when he managed to kill shroud, leaving everyone impressed with his skills.

While they were competing for the Oil Rig, Sykkuno managed to get shroud with his gun as he jumped, and it didn’t seem like shroud expected it at all, dying with a bewildered “no, Sykkuno!”

Sykkuno’s hand immediately flew to his mouth, laughing and apologizing for the abrupt kill.

Michael sounded equally as impressed as he did betrayed, after a few seconds of silence saying “Sykkuno you killed me, you’re amazing!” But the compliments didn’t end there, with Micheal adding, “you destroyed me!” and even “you’re the better gamer, man” to which Sykkuno replied, “no, no, most definitely not.”

Sykkuno has talked previously about how he’s a “humongous fan of shroud” in the past, so this interaction definitely proved to be a positive one for the rising streamer.

One fan on Twitter said, “Sykkuno downed shroud and even shroud is proud of him,” another saying “that Sykkuno/shroud friendly PVP was beautiful to watch… what in the wholesome rivalry.”

The PVP moment was definitely an entertaining one all round, and while the results were unexpected, no one was more impressed than shroud himself.
