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.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
