Popular Twitch streamer Felix ‘Overwatch’s newest hero Sigma.

xQc made his name on Twitch by playing Overwatch, but has had a complicated relationship with the game over the last few years.

He was one of the biggest names in the Overwatch League’s Inaugural Season until he and the Dallas Fuel parted ways early in the season (though he has made somewhat of a return).

Since then he’s continued streaming, but likes to switch it up between different games, rather than grinding out Overwatch matches all day.

Blizzard EntertainmentxQc is also a fan favorite in the Overwatch World Cup.

Why was xQc disappointed with Blizzard?

Before a new hero is released, Blizzard will often let prominent members of the Overwatch community know beforehand, with an obvious embargo on sharing anything too early.

As one of the most popular Overwatch streamers on Twitch, xQc seems like a natural candidate to get in on the action, but it seems like he got left out in the cold for the release of Sigma and only found out along with everyone else.

Nesskain/Blizzard EntertainmentxQc found out about Sigma with the rest of us.

“I don’t care that much how I can gain from a character coming out, right?” xQc asked his chat. “What am I going to gain out of it? Dude, 2,000 followers? There are a billion ways I can grow the stream that I can do good shit.”

“But there are not a lot of good ways that we can create excitement for the fucking game and when it’s dying, we can use every bit of help to make it come back from the hole that was dug in for it,” xQc passionately explained. “And I can help with that, and I don’t know why I’m on the fucking sidelines all the time dude.”

“I’m not jealous, I’m disappointed in the lost potential,” he told chat. “It makes me upset dude.”

What does xQc think of Sigma?

After sharing his disappointment with chat, xQc joined the rest of us on the PTR to try the newest Overwatch hero out on stream.

xQc confirmed that Sigma is a high skill ceiling hero and his abilities can be tough to get down, just like finally get to try Sigma out on the PTR starting today.

And who knows? Maybe by the time Hero 32 rolls around, it will be Felix broadcasting live from Blizzard HQ along with Jeff.

YouTube star and beauty guru James Charles may have just teased one of the biggest games of Among Us we’ve seen yet, tagging massively popular personalities like Corpse Husband, Dream, and many more.

InnerSloth’s whodunnit-style game took over the entire internet last year — two years after its initial release — due to its group-based gameplay and hilarious moments that can arise at any time as players attempt to determine the impostor in their midst.

In that timeframe, quite a few content creators also rose to prominence in part because of their hilarious Among Us playthroughs, with the likes of Corpse Husband and more gaining millions of subscribers.

Since then, internet personalities from the “mainstream” have even jumped in on the trend, as seen when TikTok star Addison Rae tried her hand at the game with Dream and Quackity.

James Charles teases among us lobby
Innersloth’s viral video game has become a viral internet sensation two years after its initial release.

Now, makeup mogul James Charles is getting in on the hype, and he’s bringing some of the game’s most popular players along with him for a huge lobby that will undoubtedly score an impressive amount of viewers.

On February 25, James Charles sent out a surprising tweet that tagged some of Among Us’s biggest names: Dream, Corpse Husband, GeorgeNotFound, Valkyrae, Pokimane, Disguised Toast, Sykkuno, TommyInnit, Quackity, and Karl Jacobs, to be exact.

“Y’all ready for tomorrow?” he asked — and while it’s not 100% certain that an Among Us lobby is exactly what he’s got in mind for February 26, it certainly seems to be that way, considering the sheer number of players he tagged who have quite a history with the game.

At the time of writing, Charles’ tweet has certainly amped up the hype, garnering over 32k likes and counting as more and more of the tagged players chime in.

Charles himself has a fairly decent Among Us track record of sorts, having played an “IRL” version of the game with fellow YouTube stars before. That being said, these players could be grouping up for something similar, although considering the current health crisis, a virtual Among Us lobby seems more probable.

There’s no set time for their broadcast just yet, but it’s certainly worth keeping an eye on for those interested in seeing what sort of antics this star-studded squad will get into in just 24 hours’ time.
