xQc breaks down after finally beating Jump King in front of 50k viewers

After nearly 50 hours of gameplay, a dozen streams, countless desk slams, and explosions, 5,000 heartbreaking falls, and more than 80,000 individual jumps, Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has finally finished Jump King DLC.

xQc has been grinding Jump King’s ‘Ghost of the Babe’ DLC since its release on December 13, and after other Twitch stars slowly finished the notoriously difficult game, the former Overwatch pro was left alone in his own platformer hell.

Now, a full week after the game’s third chapter was released, xQc has finally conquered the indie title. It would be a momentous occasion for any gamer, but the Twitch star revealed the victory was extra special, after Jump King and its extreme difficulty had been ‘haunting’ him all week.

“Oh my god, oh my god! Holy sh*t dude, I actually can’t believe it. I’m shaking. Holy sh*t!! We did it baby, we f*cking did it! It’s over,” xQc yelled upon reaching the top.

“It took us way, way longer than anybody else and I don’t care. This was not about the game and the pixels. We dropped so many ratings in so many games, but I have never felt the way I did after not being able to beat this game.”

The Canadian seemed simultaneously ecstatic, and nearly deranged after defeating the game that had pushed him to his limits, repeating the noise of the falling sound over and over again before reenacting it on his bed.

He went on to explain the pains he had suffered physically from slamming his hand on his desk over and over again while falling, and then revealed he was planning to “never, ever” return to Nexile’s cartoon platformer.

Despite sounding like he hated the game, in the end, the Twitch star admitted he couldn’t stop thinking about Jump King, even after switching off his stream, and the failures of each of his dozen broadcasts played over in his head.

“I never felt so weirded, every night it was just so odd, I just had this odd feeling,” he explained. “Like a deep feeling that I shouldn’t have for a f*cking game, for pixels, but I felt it… I only wanted to finish it to get rid of this feeling.”

“It’s such an odd feeling. I wanted to give up, and if I fall, I want to give up even more dude. But you guys didn’t give up either, you showed up every day. I thought I was going to kill the channel doing this shit every day, but you still showed up.”

NexilexQc has been struggling to complete Jump King’s new DLC for nearly a week.

The streamer admitted he had used his chat’s calls for him to fall as “fuel” to drive him ever onwards, but there was one viewer — not even a subscriber — that truly motivated him to reach the pinnacle of the Ghost of the Babe, and succeed.

“I’m not kidding, I never read chat when I’m in really hard parts of a game, but the last time we fell, the chat was full of ‘Omegaluls’ making fun of me, and in this sea of ‘Omegaluls,’ I’m not kidding, in the sea I saw one guy, a non-sub,” xQc revealed.

“I don’t know who the f*ck he is, but he said: “You got this.” He said that, not even in caps, just a simple ‘you got this,’ and I was like “You’re damn right we got this!” and we just went back up dude, and ‘bam!’ we got it. Feels so fulfilling.”

Although xQc didn’t seem to enjoy his time with the platformer, or at least became obsessed with finishing it, there’s no denying Jump King has taken the gaming community by storm since it’s May 2019 release, mainly due to its difficulty.

For now, however, it seems like xQc’s self-inflicted trials are over, which is probably for the best considering how emotional he got once he reached the top — but there’s always more DLC looming for Nexile’s difficult platformer.


Pokimane denies new Fedmyster claims, says he sent “admission of guilt”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has hit back at claims made by former OfflineTV streamer Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan in a leaked exposé document, and revealed the disgraced Twitch star sent her what she believes is an “admission of guilt.”

Earlier this year, the OfflineTV house was rocked by accusations of harassment and misconduct leveled at former editor-turned-personality Fedmyster.

Several members of the Twitch content group, including Lilypichu and Yvonne, detailed how Gaytan would “come to [their] room, drunk” and “massage [their] feet and thighs.” Yvonne also revealed he had “crawled in bed” with her, kissed her cheek, and put his hand up her shirt.

These accusations were compounded when Pokimane claimed Fed had been a “big reason” why she moved out of the house. Fedmyster was subsequently expelled from the OfflineTV house, and removed from the company.

After months of silence from the Twitch streamer, a document leaked online on Nov. 24, which mainly detailed Fed’s relationship with Pokimane. In the unreleased exposé titled “My Truth”, which Dexerto has read copies of, Gaytan, 25, accused Pokimane of “twisting the truth” about their relationship.

Pokimane has now hit back, speaking about the leaked document in a short Twitch stream on Wednesday. In her response, she suggests Fedmyster sent her an “admission of guilt” in regards to his “manipulative” actions.

Fedmyster’s leaked doc, “My Truth,” mainly revolves around his relationship with Pokimane.

Fedmyster allegedly sent Pokimane “admission of guilt”

Anys, who admitted she’s already seen several versions of the Fedmyster document, doubled down on her previous June 29 claims. According to the Twitch star, Fed’s claim to a potential hookup, Steve, that they were “a thing” was the best example of his manipulation.

“I want to make it clear that, to me, this incident [with Steve] was clearly a mess-up on Fed’s part. I confronted Fed, he apologized… he admitted fault,” she said.

Pokimane revealed she messaged Fedmyster ahead of her ‘tell-all’ stream in June, asking if there was anything she “should maybe leave out.” When Gaytan requested she skip over the incident with Steve at the party, however, she refused.

“He said ‘if you can… leave out the Steve stuff, it’s something I wouldn’t like mentioned.’ I couldn’t leave that out. He asked me not to mention it, and I think that’s an admission of guilt, then later he says ‘that’s not how it went down’.”

Pokimane says Fed’s claims ‘overshadow’ real issue

The problem, she continued, is that Fed has focused on her being a “villain” and leading him on in the leaked document. This focus, which she believes “blows everything out of proportion,” is being used to overshadow the actual OfflineTV accusations.

“Essentially we had trouble being close but managing our friendship, knowing he wanted more, but I always felt I was upfront about it… it really bothers me that in this document he tried to make me out as the bad guy,” Pokimane said.

“Obviously we weren’t on the same page. I hope you guys can see this from my perspective… I didn’t see a future between the two of us. I thought I was always honest. Looking back, I should have been more aware of how I acted around him, but hindsight is 20/20!

“To me, in all honesty, all of this is just not important. It’s regular 20-year-old relationship bullsh*t. What I shared about the situation is my honest truth, and it’s totally irrelevant to the actual incidents that triggered all of this.”

Fedmyster says he “stands by document”

Fedmyster has addressed the leaked document too; according to the disgraced Twitch star, he had no plans to release the exposé, because it felt like “airing dirty laundry.”

“[Poki and I] came to agree that keeping things private and making no further statements publicly was what was best for us…We wanted to heal and prevent any further harm to the people involved,” he explained in a short Twitter post.

“On the topic of whether I tried to manipulate our friends to hate her, I still fully stand behind what my document reads but I want to emphasize that it wasn’t my intention to shine Poki in a bad light… I am deeply sorry, and wish I wasn’t so naive and insensitive.”

Fedmyster also said he “still believes [he] was mischaracterized,” but added “after talking to Poki I came to understand her perspective. My outlook on the situation as a whole now comes from a better place of understanding.”

Hours after finishing her stream, Anys took to her second Twitter account, where she said she was “looking forward to moving on” from the whole situation.

“Sorry, td was tough, it’s hard for me to reply to v private things without making the situation messier + I was not in a good headspace,” she wrote. “ty to those that were understanding. looking forward to moving on.”

Yvonne and Lilypichu, who were the first to level harassment allegations against Fedmyster, have not yet publicly addressed the leaked document.
