A Twitch streamer struggled to hold back tears after listening to a song a fan wrote for him live on stream.

Once one of the biggest Call of Duty YouTubers, WoodysGamertag has moved his gaming endeavors to Twitch in recent years and maintained a solid following in the process.

During his January 11 stream, a viewer sent Woody a $1 donation alongside a YouTube link, that took him to a song titled “Woody the Unexceptional” which – from the way he recognized the name of the creator – he has probably heard songs from before.

YouTube: WoodysGamerTagWoodysGamertag isn’t the name in Call of Duty he once was, but still regularly streams his gameplay to a loyal audience.

Woody proceeds to listen to the song (which is a comedic ode to himself), scrolling through the lyrics as it goes so he and his stream could fully appreciate the effort that went into it — and the witty lines that make up the song.

The song was littered with jokes about Woody and his content through the years, with the man himself laughing throughout at what his fans had been able to come up with.

It was only at the end, when the hook resounded for a final time, that you can see Woody get a bit misty-eyed, unable to find the words to explain how he was feeling after sniffling and wiping away the tears from under his glasses.

A simple chorus of “Woody the unexceptional” saw out the song and played an emotional backdrop as he struggled to hold back tears, simply saying “I can’t believe you made that.”

He goes on to say it was “really cool” and thanked the artist before deciding the time was right to end the stream, putting him out on a high for the evening.

WoodysGamertag isn’t the first streamer to have songs created just for him, as popular streamer Nymn recently created a song for Dr Disrespect, while the Doc himself also wrote a song for his opponents.

xQc immediately regrets mocking CoD controller players

The mouse and keyboard versus controller debate is one that will likely last forever, but Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel had a rude awakening when discussing how “easy” playing Call of Duty on controller is.

The entire argument falls back on the ‘PC Master Race’ idea, with players believing that mouse & keyboard on PC is the optimal way to play any game, especially when it comes to first-person shooters.

Obviously, it all comes down to personal preference. In CoD alone, we see players like Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff stick to his controller roots, while his oft-teammate Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar prefers to play on mouse and keyboard.

xQc falls into the same category as Tim, having made his name as a professional Overwatch player and one of Twitch’s top streamers on mouse and keyboard — and clearly doesn’t have the highest opinion of controller players.

While playing through the new Black Ops Cold War campaign on a controller, xQc explains why quickscoping on a controller isn’t that impressive, but it quickly comes back to bite him.

“There’s bullet magnetism, there’s auto-aim, there’s crosshair magnetism…” the Canadian star said, before telling his viewers to look at how easy it is.

He then proceeded to miss several more shots than he hit, instantly proving himself wrong and regretting mocking controller players before actually testing what he was talking about.

“In this case,” he continued after missing a flurry of shots, “it’s a glitch. It’s a glitch.”

xQc went sheepishly silent after the clip, while his chat burst out in laughter given the incredible timing of what he had been saying about quickscoping on a controller.

Obviously xQc won’t be that upset about it, but he might think twice before he makes comments like that about controller players again.
