Twitch streamer Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel was stopped in his tracks on stream after watching a CS:GO compilation video and noted the odd trend of camera angles that typical streamers for the game take.

xQc is a former professional player himself when he was a part of the Overwatch League’s Dallas Fuel squad before circumstances saw him transition to a full-time streamer.

The Canadian streamer was flipping through videos with his chat when he came across an old clip from longtime CS:GO veteran İsmailcan ‘XANTARES’ Dörtkardeş’s stream that caught xQc’s eye.

PGLStep foot in any CS:GO stream and this is typically what you’ll find.

The clip was not even five seconds long, but it was enough to mystify xQc on the decidedly strange camera angles that he’s seen CS:GO broadcasters utilize on a regular basis.

“Cause I always wondered… woooah, the fu–,” xQc said after being interrupted mid thought. “Every CS:GO streamers have these garbage ass camera angles.”

The former Overwatch pro proceeded to move his own camera in a mocking display of how his stream would look if he took a similar, albeit exaggerated, approach to recording himself on Twitch.

He demonstrated awful viewpoints that included showing a sliver of forehead peering over his computer’s monitor, having his mouse centered with a part of his right shoulder completely filling the frame, and what he said was the “NICKMERCS angle” that only showed his forehead peering from the bottom of the camera.

xQc is famously unapologetic when it comes to giving an opinion on anything he finds unfavorable, and CS:GO audiences might finally have something to agree when it comes to camera angles in the scene.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
