Popular streamers xQc and Tyler1 ran into each other at the 2019 TwitchCon event while the former was streaming, and the meeting went exactly as you might imagine.

Both known for their loud and hyper personalities while livestreaming, having the two of them in the same place, while on camera, was bound to be a meeting to remember.

Although the pair have rarely streamed or played games together, they have locked horns in the past, after tyler1 refused to play Blackout with xQc in October, prompting him to hurl insults back.

xQc is a former Overwatch professional, while tyler1 is best known for his League of Legends streams.

It was all in good fun though, and both streamers remain friendly, but their TwitchCon meeting unsurprisingly spiraled into insults about each other.

“How does it feel being the face of Twitch now?” xQc asked, mockingly, “This is a live interview now dude.”

Tyler1 had his response ready to go, “it’s not always easy when you’re this big, this tall, this strong. A lot of fans, a lot of temptations, I’ve got to keep this head on my shoulders, got to push through it xQc.”

“Is it hard work”, xQc asks, mocking tyler’s complaints about the difficulties of being a big name streamer.

“Is streaming hard work?” Tyler responded, “probably not what you do, because you just sit there and react to videos all day. But my work? Yes, it’s hard.”

Lengyel wasn’t convinced though, asking that Stienkamp explain what’s so hard, who explains it’s simply “mentally preparing my skits before stream!”

Tyler1, perhaps growing bored of xQc’s questions, quickly made his escape, and the popular streamers went their separate ways.

Both are at the San Diego Convention center for TwitchCon 2019, where they will be among some of the biggest names on the platform in attendance.

Fans will arrive in droves to see their favorites, but fans at home can simply enjoy the action from home as xQc streams his travels around the venue. He has already met up with TSM Myth too, who performed his uncanny impression in real life.

Twitch streamer Forsen has been hit with a ban on the platform. The reasons why are unclear as it stands and nothing has been confirmed, but fans are speculating he’s another victim of DMCA regulations. 

Forsen is one of the website’s most popular streamers, with over 1.3 million followers. He has been broadcasting for almost a decade on the platform, too.

On November 26, it was confirmed that there would be another ban on his channel – and it’s not certain how long it will last for.

Speculation has already begun, with one Twitter user claiming Forsen has fallen victim to Twitch’s DMCA regulations, adding, “DMCA apparently, stream sniper played copyrighted music … The state of Twitch.”

In 2020, Several streamers have been banned for old VODs that feature any form of licensed music. The issue has affected big-name streamers including JakeNBake, LIRIK, and Pokimane to name a few. Despite Twitch apologizing and claiming to take action, the controversy still looms heavily on Twitch streamers.

This isn’t his first time facing a suspension from the platform. Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors was banned from Twitch for the second time on September 10, following his previous ban in May.

He wasn’t given a detailed explanation behind his account ban, but once unbanned, Forsen revealed more information. During his September 12 stream, Forsen explained he believes he was suspended for using a homophobic slur, but says it was ‘misheard’ because of his Swedish accent.

Dexerto will continue to update this story.
