Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel is well known for losing his cool with video games, and viewers of his stream were greeted with another classic moment after losing a round in his 46th Overwatch match of the day.

The streamer has returned to Overwatch after a self-imposed sabbatical which began with the streamer getting a two week ban, and Lengyel declaring he would never play the Blizzard title again.

However, after a few weeks of the Canadian trying out the other games like Pokémon and some other single-player titles, he is back on Overwatch to the delight of his audience.

Blizzard EntertainmentxQc returned to Overwatch after a lengthy spell away from the game.

On Monday, January 21, xQc began a stream that would last for over 24 hours, with the former Dallas Fuel player grinding Overwatch the whole day, resulting in the streamer racking up an incredible 50 matches in one sitting.

However, after tasting a round defeat in his 46th match, the Canadian wasn’t able to contain his frustration at his teammates, who he felt had cost him the victory.

“Yo, you motherfuckers are trolling, right?” yelled xQc at his teammates as he writhed around in his chair. “I can’t fucking do this, I’m not fucking losing like this. Please confirm to me that you are fucking trolling. This can’t be real life!”

While xQc played for almost 24 hours, he managed to finish up with a positive win record, winning 29 games and losing 21 of the 50 overall matches he played.

The former Dallas Feul pro player has been showing that he has still got some impressive skills on the popular title, including a Winston play that secured a clutch victory for his squad.

The Cyberpunk 2077 team at CD Projekt RED have confirmed that streamers will not have to worry about the new heavy DMCA regulations on Twitch when streaming their game, as the soundtrack has been built from scratch.

Twitch streamers were left frustrated and worried on October 21, after a wave of DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) warnings were sent regarding their past VODs and clips, with some even being deleted.

Creators are now resorting to drastic measures to protect their channels and ensure their ability to upload future content, after it was discovered that past streams are now being picked apart. For many that means erasing the vast majority of their old content.

This included popular streamer Pokimane who said “Today, tomorrow, at some point, you guys are going to come across my channel and there’s going to be zero content. Sucks to say, but it is what it is.”

This is concerning particularly for gaming streamers, who may play a game like Grand Theft Auto, where copyrighted music is played in the game world, through car radios etc. But the team behind the highly anticipated game Cyberpunk 2077 have eased that concern for their upcoming game.

Twitch variety broadcaster DansGaming asked the developers whether the game would have a “streamer mode” that would allow creators the “option to mute Copyrighted Music that is licensed for the game so content creators don’t get DMCAs.”

The team replied that while there are more details to come in the near future, “our soundtrack has been created from the scratch – this includes all tracks from the numerous artists we work with. Their music has been made specifically for our game making this a bit smoother hopefully.”

This is no doubt a huge relief to both creators and the developers, as streamers will be able to dive into what looks to be one of the biggest games of the year worry-free, and devs will be able to benefit from the amazing community that can emerge thanks to streamers.

Streamer DrLupo praised the developers, saying “they gave the go-ahead to content creators, they’re f**king smart, they made it all [the music].”

CD Projekt Red’s Cyberpunk 2077 is an open-world action-adventure RPG, set in the dystopian Night City, and is due to release on November 19.
