Félix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has become super popular for becoming enraged while playing games, especially ones he is new to, however, when he does end up doing something brilliant – it provides some classic highlights and reactions for his fans.

xQc, like many of Twitch’s top streamers, has been playing the new remake of Resident Evil 2 to relive some of the nostalgia from their early gaming years. The game was originally released in 1998 but the remake was released recently on January 25.

The game is as difficult as it’s 1998 counterpart and can baffle some players. However, xQc performed one of the biggest clutches in the game when presented with a puzzle, providing fans one of his best Twitch clips yet.

Robert Paul for Blizzard EntertainmentxQc has shot to popularity since transitioning to Twitch.

The former Overwatch pro had just under a minute to solve a three-circuit puzzle that involved him flipping switches to make a circuit flow in the direction he wanted. With the time ticking down, xQc got ever close to failing the task before clutching up and completing the final two circuits in quick succession with less than a second of the time remaining.

“Oh my God! Holy shit! There was like one point two (left on the countdown). Oh my God, I can’t believe it,” xQc screamed out upon completing the puzzle, clearly delighted with himself while almost falling out of his chair and off stream.

The clip will no doubt only endear him further to his loyal fans who adore almost everything he does.

Since transitioning to Twitch from the Overwatch League, xQc has shot up the popularity charts due to incredibly funny highlights clips like this where his full entertaining personality is on show for all to see.

Twitch star Jake “Jake’n’Bake” Abramson has revealed he could be “in danger of losing everything” he’s built on his channel after an old IRL clip from more than two years ago was hit with a DMCA copyright strike due to a Kanye West song.

The ongoing Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) drama sweeping across Twitch has spared no one from its reach. The new Twitch crackdown, which sees streamers pinged for licensed music on broadcasts, is the hot topic in the community right now.

One by one, Twitch’s biggest stars have been sucked into the DMCA drama; Imane “Pokimane” Anys was forced to delete her streaming back-catalog last week, and Michael “shroud” Grzesiek has called for stars to “unite” against the crackdown.

DragonForce’s Herman Li was also banned after DMCA flagged his own music.

Now, the latest star to find himself on the DMCA frontlines is Jake’n’Bake. The 30-year-old IRL star is one of the Amazon-owned platform’s biggest stars. He boasts nearly 500k followers, but that may now be in danger.

Jake’n’Bake revealed on Oct. 29 that he had been hit with a copyright infringement from Twitch. The kicker? The clip in question was from a May 9 stream all the way back in 2018, which contained just mere seconds of Kanye West’s ‘Lift Yourself.’

Jake’n’Bake gets DMCA strike for old Twitch clip

“Just to be clear… this is a 30-second clip from two and a half years ago,” Abramson wrote on Twitter soon after receiving the DMCA email.

The Twitch email detailed a “claimed infringement” on Jake’n’Bake’s old 2018 broadcast, where moments of the Kanye West song can be heard. The email warned JakeNBake could have his channel “terminated” if another offense is uncovered.

“It was from an outdoor IRL stream. I probably passed by a shop, or was in a place that was playing the song in the background… I’m now in danger of losing everything,” the Twitch star continued. “How is this even realistic?”

Jake’n’Bake, who admitted on-stream soon after that Twitch is “80% of his life,” is now rushing to download and clear his video back-catalog — 13,00 past VODS worth — in an effort to avoid that next promised DMCA strike.

“The biggest thing for me, and I think a lot of people are the same, because my stuff is IRL, there’s like three years of home videos. I love that they’re all in one place, and accessible,” he explained.

“It’s not like I just played games… for me, it’s like, in my heart, all these memories, and experiences. It’s disappointing because it just got a bit more real.”

“My fear is if I counter-ping this, and it chimes like a little ‘tick’, and some computer just turns at me and goes through everything like ‘f*ck you, f*ck you, f*ck you’… and starts pinging me for everything I’ve done! Maybe I should just delete everything so that can’t get me.”

He added later, “It’s kind of nuts how this is just controlling my life now. This was two and a half years ago! I don’t really know what to do except delete everything, which just sucks. There’s nothing else I can really do.”

The DMCA drama, unfortunately, looks set to continue into the foreseeable future on Twitch, with the platform sticking to their guns on the copyright stance.

We can layout the big names hit by the wave so far ⁠— Courage, BrookeAB, Scump, Ninja, Sonii, Mongraal, Lirik… the list goes on ⁠— and there’ll likely be more caught in the crackdown soon. Twitch has yet to comment on the most recent strikes.
