Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel recently got sentimental about teabagging on stream, and claimed the action didn’t carry the same weight as it used to.

xQc recently returned to playing Overwatch after mostly staying away from the game since being suspended in November, 2018.

Since his return it seems the streamer is trying to turn over a new leaf, he’s even avoided raging in situations he usually would, most of the time at least.

While playing Overwatch recently, xQc got a question from a viewer who asked him what he thought about ‘teabagging’, or the action of crouching directly on your opponents face after they’re knocked out in FPS games.

“I feel like people don’t really teabag for the right reasons anymore,” xQc told viewers. “People are so young and they just started playing online video games, they don’t really understand why you teabag, it’s kind of lost it’s value, it’s meaning, it’s sort of, reasoning."

Now, the action is mainly used when one player knocks another out, Lengyel said.

“You didn’t do shit,” the streamer told his fans. “If you don’t understand, you’re probably between 10 and 18 years old, maybe 19, that’s why you don’t understand it.”

There was a bit of teabagging controversy in during Season One of the Overwatch League when Jae-hyeok “Carpe” Lee of the Philadelphia Fusion eliminated eliminated Gi-hyeon “Ado” Chon of the Shanghai Dragons during a match and proceeded to crouch repeatedly on top of him.

The controversial action has been a part of online games since the early days, but in 2019, teabagging, at least according to xQc, is simply a hollow shell of what it once represented.
