Popular Twitch streamer League of Legends games are being “ruined” time and time again by something out of his control.

The loud-mouthed gamer is known for the epic rage moments he produces on stream, and in his latest outburst, he had his targets set on one feature that he believes isn’t needed in the battle arena game. 

“Holy fuck. What a terrible fucking player, man,” he said cooly, as he refused to honor any of the teammates in the game after their performance in a defeat. However, just a few moments later, things were cranked up a notch.

Tyler1, TwitchTyler1 couldn’t believe his autofilled teammates statistics after the loss in League of Legends.

“Fix the game!” he screamed, leaping forward from his seat right in front of the camera. “Remove autofill. It’s trash! So bullshit, I play this stupid shit every day and autofill just doesn’t get removed. You’re ruining my games!” 

Making reference to the mass walkout of employees at Riot Games on May 6, Tyler1 claimed that if he was working for the company, he would leave the “pathetic company” too. 

A number of current and former Riot employees have filed lawsuits against the company since late 2018, with claims involving not only a violation of the California Equal Pay Act, but also the company’s handling of ongoing sexual harassment and discrimination allegations too.

Not every employee would have reacted in the same way as Tyler1 did on stream, though, as he reenacted a hypothetical version of him leaving Riot for viewers to see.

Thumping his fist onto the desk and throwing his headset across the room, the streamer left the room for a brief moment – angered by the poor performance of the player that had been drafted into his game by the autofill feature. 

Whether or not his protest against the feature will prove successful remains to be seen, but it was certainly a strong message sent to the developer, to say the least.

xQc begs his Twitch fans to stop sending so many “sad” donations

In a hilarious but sincere rant, xQc begged his fans to stop sending so many “sad” donation messages, particularly when they happen one after the other and even more so when they are fake.

Twitch donations are the best way for fans to pass on a message to their favorite streamers. Not all streamers have text-to-speech for donations turned on, and even they do, they don’t always hear them. However, it’s still more effective than spamming in the chat.

Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel gets bombarded with donation messages every stream. They’re often funny, but they can sometimes be sad and depressing. xQc has finally had enough of that, particularly when it’s excessive and insincere.

The Twitch star has slotted (deliberately or otherwise) into his 'bad guy' role perfectly.

The Twitch star had a lot to say about “sad” donations during a recent stream.

“Let me talk about this once and for all,” he said. “I realize this kind of like a picky topic… but I’ll just tell you straight up, okay? The emotional [donation messages] are fine when they’re true.”

“The problem is when there’s too many of them that are stacked, it feels like… all the energy goes down,” he added.

“Sometimes it’s f**king overwhelming,” he said. “I feel bad for the people that are having tough times, legitimately, and they’re struggling. They’re trying to get under the wave of BigPog, and you just pull everybody down.”

“When there’s a couple, it’s fine,” he added. “But when it’s too stacked, I feel bad for the people that are just trying to escape. They’re getting f**ked on over and over again. It’s selfish as sh*t.”

“Those that bait it are even worse,” he said. “It’s fake, and it’s trolling, and it’s f**king stupid as sh*t. I’m tired of it, dude. That sh*t is garbage. I could have said it in a better way, but there’s no way around it. Holy sh*t, man.”

“I don’t want to shut down people from saying stuff that they’re going through,” he added. “Just be mindful not to stack it all. I don’t want this stream to become a ship of despair.”

xQc has never been one to bite his tongue, and he didn’t hold back here. However, somebody posted the clip on Reddit, and it seems like others sympathize with him.

“I feel bad for the people, but it just completely ruins the mood every time,” wrote one user, which ended up being the top comment. “I love watching XQC, but [text-to-speech] is unbearable,” wrote another.

In the end, though, there’s two sides to every story. It will be interesting to see what donors who leave these messages haveto say. Maybe they’ll understand.
