Apex Legends has gone down a storm with players and streamers around the world, but Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel couldn’t resist taking a few shots at EA games after watching Dr Disrespect rant about the Origin platform.

The former Overwatch pro was watching a clip of fellow Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect venting his frustration’s with EA’s Origin platform after being met with a ‘cloud sync error’ that prevented him from playing Apex Legends, the popular new free-to-play battle royale title.

“Jesus Christ, this Origin sucks!” the Doc called out as he discovered the error. “EA, get rid of it. Just get rid of it. Like, nice idea EA, it’s not working out, just get rid of it. Put everything on Steam.”

This prompted xQc to take things one step further, by trying to prove that EA is failing as a company, despite the popularity of Apex Legends.

“No, it’s [Origin] working guys – I promise,” he stated sarcastically before heading to Google in an attempt to use the company’s current stock price as a way to emphasize his point.

“Guys, I know the stock market,” Lengyel added before being met with a graph EA’s share prices dropping significantly in recent months. After taking a few moments to let his point sink in, xQc closed the page and concluded, in a sheepish manner: “Changing topic guys.”

It is outspoken highlights and moments of humor like this that keep viewers flooding back to xQc’s channel, making him one of the most popular Twitch personalities over the last 12 months.

While his more controversial opinions, including labeling people who enjoy traveling as ‘hipster retards’, create some negativity around him, they don’t appear to affect his growth – he continues to maintain a strong standing on the streaming platform.

Apex Legends changing name of Inauguration Ship to avoid confusion

A Respawn Entertainment developer has confirmed that, with the next Apex Legends update releasing during the week of January 17, the name of the Inauguration Ship Season 8 teaser will be changed in order to avoid confusion surrounding the upcoming United States Presidential Inauguration.

With Season 8 of Apex Legends quickly approaching, teasers for it have been starting to crop-up in-game, with one of the most interesting being the Inauguration Ship seen floating above the map.

The name, however, has nothing to do with the upcoming US Presidential Inauguration, which is occurring on Wednesday, January 20, 2021 – so in order to avoid confusion with that major event, the developers have decided to change the name of it to the Ceremony Ship.

According to Ryan Rigney, the director of communications over at Respawn Entertainment, the decision was made to avoid people thinking that the developers were “doing commentary about current events,” and considering how close we are to the actual inauguration, it makes sense.

Rigney added that they didn’t initially mean to cause confusion and that the name “Inauguration Ship” was something that they had picked out a while ago and it just happened to line up with current events.

“Better safe than sorry,” he tweeted.

In terms of what will actually be edited in-game, Rigney confirmed that the change won’t be too significant, stating that he believes the only thing of note will be a text file that appeared when pinging the ship in-game. Of course, the name change means that any new pieces of lore in Apex will refer to the ship with the appropriate title as well.

Right now, the Ceremony Ship is one of the most notable hints for Season 8 occurring in-game, aside from the new abilities teasers that have been found, which belong to the upcoming Legend named Fuse.

It’ll be interesting to see if anything else comes out of the ship before the new season’s start in early February.
