Popular PUBG was quickly closed down, and it looks like he’s been banned from the game. 

The former Overwatch League pro has become one of the most popular members of the Twitch community due to his hilarious streams, which almost always provide a highlight clip of some sort.

While some viewers get their entertainment through xQc himself, others take it upon themselves to negatively affect his stream in a bid to create their own enjoyment.

Blizzard EntertainmentDespite no longer being an Overwatch pro, xQc remains as one of the most popular channels on Twitch.

During his June 23 stream, the Canadian jumped into a number of custom matches of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds with his viewers, as he bounced from game to game.

However, that soon came to a crashing halt when xQc finished up his third custom game of Zombies, as he was greeted with a banned message. “You have been banned from PUBG until 2019-06-24, due to unusual game patterns,” read the announcement – leaving xQc confused as to what had happened.

“I can’t play anymore, I legit just got banned,” explained xQc when another game was in the process of being set up.

His partner in crime, Moxy, quickly jumped to the conclusion that players had spammed the report feature on his account in a troll – leading to an automated suspension that would need to be reviewed by a developer.

This theory was also backed up by members of the Livestream Fails and PUBG subreddits, who pointed out that viewers could report him after every kill, even in private lobbies. 

Others stated that he had triggered some sort of warning system, as he killed 13 players in quick succession after he had mowed the majority of the lobby down with a boat.

Of course, xQc wasn’t cheating when he picked up the mega killstreak. It was just his stream snipers lining up to sacrifice themselves to him for a hilarious moment.

The streamer has yet to comment on his suspension, but considering it’s only a 24-hour ban, it’s unlikely that he’ll suffer any serious consequences with the developers and should be able to return without any issues.

Former rapper Logic dropped the price of house – over $226k – on a Pokemon card. The Twitch star bought the insanely rare 1st Edition Charizard at an auction, and broke a major record for the Nintendo collectible. 

Despite releasing in 1999, the Pokemon Trading Card Game has seen an explosion in value over the last two years. Items that were once traded on school playgrounds around the world for nothing are now selling for the price of a house.

Lately, the hobby has been attracting attention from popular stars such as Logan Paul who paid $216k for a base set booster box. On October 9, Twitch streamer Logic raised the bar even higher after spending $226k on a shadowless 1st Edition Charizard – and also broke a record in the process.

On October 9, the item ended at an astonishing $226,088.76, with the buyer’s premium included.

Shockingly, the winner was none other then former rapper and Twitch star, Logic. The streamer made the reveal on Twitter in a reply to YouTube personality Logan Paul. “@LoganPaul I’m the one at the auction for 183k Lololol,” he said.

Released in 1997, Charizard has often been the crown jewel of the Pokemon TCG. Decades later, its popularity has maintained and is the most sought-after monster from the original base set.

According to card investing company, Cardhops, the sale is now the new record holder for the highest price that the Charizard card has sold for. Business analyst Darren Rovell confirmed this, stating, “Beats record for the card by more than $50,000.”

Logic’s Pokemon card splurge smashed a record.

While Logic being the auction winner might surprise some, this isn’t the first time the popular streamer has dropped big money on the Nintendo hobby. On October 9, he tweeted out that he’d spent $23k on a base set booster box from 1999.

“Just opened a $23k Pokemon base set box! Only a few back in but look what I pulled!!” he exclaimed, as he revealed that he had pulled another Charizard card – though this one wasn’t 1st Edition or shadowless.

Pokemon TCG fever seems to be at an all-time high. On October 9, Logan Paul hosted a livestream where he opened up a 1st Edition base set booster box he paid $216k for.

The star pulled a Charizard card worth up to $85k, and even popular YouTuber Mr Beast won a $30k Blastoise. With Logic dropping over $226k for a single card, it seems the sky’s the limit for the Nintendo hobby.
