Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel claims that Jeremy ‘Disguised Toast’ Wang isn’t being entirely truthful about the reasons for his switch to Facebook Gaming.

In recent months, Twitch has been rocked by the departure of some huge streamers – with the most notable coming in the form of Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Michael ‘Shroud’ Grzesiek heading to Mixer.

They were followed by Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop who headed to YouTube, but Disguised Toast made a more outlandish step by heading to Facebook Gaming – a growing platform. While Wang had stated that he was swayed by the platform “helping others in need” and just needing a fresh start, xQc claims there are other reasons, and that he’d be better off just admitting to them.

FacebookDigusidedToast shocked fans by switching Twitch for Facebook Gaming.

During his November 23 stream, the former Overwatch League professional had been watching Disguised Toast’s reasoning for the move when he paused it and talked directly with his viewers.

Lengyel noted that he has “respect for all the streamers” and doesn’t want to see them fail, but he’d rather see them not lie about their reasoning for doing something, instead, finding a sweet spot that sees them say either “nothing” or a more “generic statement.” He said while they don’t “have to say the truth, they don’t have to lie either.”

“I don’t like it because it’s just not true dude. It’s not true dude,” xQc said. “Like this untapped market potential? Dude, come on man. Like dude, it was more money. If you’re going to swap platform, you’re going for a hail mary juice extraction. If you’re going for a juice extraction, you want to get the most juice as possible – and Facebook had the most juice in that instance.”

Now, Facebook Gaming is a growing platform with a genuine untapped market, especially seeing as plenty of people across the world have access to a Facebook profile and use it on an everyday basis.

However, xQc also pointed out that it is a problem because where Twitch viewers can spam to their heart’s content behind a username of their choosing, actual names appear on Facebook

Regardless, Facebook have been trying to get into the gaming and streaming space for a while – agreeing to previous deals with ESL to stream Dota and Counter-Strike: Global Offensive events exclusively.

That didn’t last as long as they would have liked, but it remains to be seen just how successful it can be in comparison to established sites like Twitch and Mixer.

Nick ‘LS’ De Cesare has revealed that Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reached out to him during the T1 backlash offering his support and advice.

T1’s accidental leak that revealed LS was set to be the organization’s new League of Legends coach resulted in a wave of backlash against both parties.

Fans of the organization opted to send unjustifiable racial and homophobic abuse towards LS, as well as doxxing his grandmother and sending packages to her address. T1, from an outside perspective, did not handle the situation appropriately and seemingly offered little support to LS during this period.

This resulted in LS disabling his Twitter and going completely dark for a short period of time. This was no doubt due to the amount of hate and criticism he was receiving from T1 fans. One person who reached to support him was huge Twitch personality xQc.

LS revealed on stream that the Twitch personality reached out to him in support. “Before I disabled my Twitter and went dark on everything, xQc was one of the very few people who reached out to me,” he said.

It was obvious LS was surprised he had reached out to him due to the streamer’s popularity: “Despite the fact that I’m like an insect compared to him, in terms of like brand and size and everything, it’s very nice.”

LS repeated multiple times that xQc is a “real one”, showing his appreciation for his support and care.

It’s clear that xQc reaching out to LS really meant a lot to him and helped him get through the difficult patch. Sometimes, just reaching out to somebody going through a hard time can make a world of difference.

Now, it’s just great to see LS back on track with the League of Legends content and streaming again.
